    Occasionally when I wake my phone up the 3g mobile network has shut itself off. It will come back automatically in a few seconds of waking the phone up, but for some reason, it's turning off while asleep. I've noticed this with my wifi as well.

    I caught this problem because my Gmail has been arriving to my pc, but not my phone. This doesn't happen all the time, but it seems to be happening more lately. Does anyone else experience this issue? It's becoming frustrating.

    It's happened to me, too. Today when it happened the 3G didn't turn back on for a good 60 seconds after I woke the phone up. Kinda frustrating since I was trying to read some news at the time.

    I don't believe it is supposed to though. That would suspend twitter, gmail, Facebook, etc from updates while the phone is in you pocket.

    This is definitely not normal. It basically turns into a dumbphone when this happens. I think I'm going to call Verizon and voice my frustrations tomorrow. This is my 2nd Eris. I've just noticed it recently.

    Just got off the phone with Verizon. They are going to send me a replacement that has been tested and working. I complained about the refurbished and they are extending the warranty. I guess I have to compromise.

    This is going to suck because I have my phone customized the way I like it. I guess i'm going to have to take some screen shots, so I can set everything up again and download all my apps. Ugh.

    I guess it's worth it if the problem gets solved.

    My 3g shuts down at night but not during the day. It wakes in about 60-90 seconds. Saves the battery from running down overnight. It may be because I changed the email auto check to 2 hours instead of 15 minutes. I thought the 3g was just for data. Not texting or phone calls.
    The first time it happened, I went into the settings menu and unchecked then rechecked the mobile network. It turned on instantly.

    The 3g shutting off is normal unless you have 'Always-On Mobile' checked in your Wireless Settings.

    Once in a while, on all 3 of the ERis's I've had, this happens. And occasionally, turning off/on Mobile by the widget doesn't even make it turn back on. I go into airplane mode for a minute, and it comes back when I come out of airplane mode.

    Wifi will shut off too if you don't enable a similar feature in your Wi-Fi Wireless Settings.

    It eats your battery up big time if your connection doesn't do this.
