    OK, so my 3G connection just randomly disappears, some times it will just switch to 1x and other times i wont have either. I have full reception at my house and this never happened with my old phone. Should i exchange my phone? or is this something that will be fixed in an update?

    Did you get the 2.0.1 update yet?

    I think this a known problem, many people were hoping 2.0.1 will fix it. If it's the only thing wrong with your phone I wouldn't try to replace it, since it's happening to many people. I guess wait and hope for a firmware update that acknowledges it/

    I have the same issue. If this is the ONLY problem you have with your phone, I would not go for an exchange. Trust me, it could be worse!

    Same here I start at 3g then it goes to 1x and will only switch back to 3g if I stop everything that uses bandwidth. It seems to happen randomly too. Its quite annoying on my train ride to have everything slow down to a crawl when I lose 3g. So much for their map when the phone can't reliably use the coverage. Other then that this phone is pretty much amazing.

    Mine does it too before and after update. I was thinking about going in and getting my phone replaced because the update didn't change it but I'm not having any other problems. So I'm torn because I don't want a worse problem with the new phone.:(

    I think I remember seeing this will be addressed in the January 22nd update.

    Alright I guess I'll just try and wait, but its kind of annoying when I'm streaming a podcast or Pandora and all the sudden it stops and I have to start my podcast all over again...
