    Is anyone else having issues connecting to mobile network?

    I'm running Fresh 2.1.2. My network hasn't connected any today. I can't even toggle the mobile network widget. When I go to Settings > Wireless, Mobile network is grayed our and it says "Turning on..." below it.

    I saw in another thread to cycle the network off and on. I have to do this through a long press on the power button, but it doesn't ever connect.

    Is this a phone issue, or could there be network problems in my area?

    I flashed a different radio and it fixed the problem. I don't know what caused it though. I haven't changed any settings in quite a while.

    or reboot. It happens occasionally, very rarely though. I think the widget has a bit of a bug where if you turn the widget on, then try to turn it off before it connects, it crashes/freezes. Or, it's just a slightly buggy process in general.

    Cycling airplane mode, or just plain rebooting will fix it.

    I tried airplane mode and power cycling. Neither worked. I don't know what the issue was, but I'm glad I changed radios. I went to a slightly older one (2.41.05.02.03) and am getting much better reception at home.
