    Hello Forum. Weird question... Does the Dinc only use 3g as it accesses new data? I rarely see a 3g signal on my phone and I live in Memphis not far from Verizon. Ive been with Verizon for 4 years and have consistently received great signals on my other phones. But with the Inc. I'll only notice I'm on 3g as I'm surfing the web or app market.

    -->>When a new page loads, 3g lights up and signal increases, and after the page loads 3g signal is gone. Is this how the device is supposed to perform?

    PS: I realize signal strength is a reported issue with this device. So far I get speedy performance without dropped calls etc. I just wasn't sure if the 3g signal activity on my device is actually the phone conserving 3g connectivity.

    Thanks in advance.

    What do you mean by 3G is gone? You can stand in one place and load a web page and then you lose your 3G signal right? Then, without moving, you try to go to another we page and it won't load because you have no signal?

    It's a known issue. Verizon knows about (I re-re-reported it today) and HTC knows about it too. A fix is in the works. Right now best you can do is reboot the phone or place the "airplane mode" icon on a home screen. When 3G drops out toggle airplane mode off and on.

    Actually I don't seen to ever loose connectivity. It's just the 3 g indicator srems to only light up as I request new data. Then the 3g goes back to being un lit. Sorry if it doesn't make sense. I appreciate your time and reply.

    What you said makes sense now. That's how it's supposed to work. It lights up to let you know it's active that's all.
