Phone dropping off network

    Hi,

    For some reason my phone randomly drops off the network and when people call me they go straight to voice mail while the phone doesn't ring at all. I still have 3 / 4 bars and can receive text messages so I'm not sure what's wrong.

    It seems to have started since I've started using the Airplane mode but this could be a coincidence.

    Please help!

    When in 2g/gsm you can't use voice and data at the same time

    How would I know when I'm in a 2g area? What are my choices then, turn off data? To clarify I wasn't browsing the Internet while people have tried calling / left voice mails.

    I've even switched the phone off, back on, waited a couple of minutes then rang the phone and it's gone straight to voice mail without ringing?!

    You'll see G when on 2g. If your phone is using data, as in background stuff this will cause issues like you've had

    I've just tested this and it seems your right. How rubbish is that!? I'm surprised I've not read about this before...

    Only Vodafone users are immune as the network kills data when routing a call

    Hummm, with Vodafone , I do have a problem. The reception is very bad with Vodafone. I keep on having no network in place I use to have with my old phone which requires me to turn off HTC desire and switch on again to get some bars.

    I permanently force mine into 3g. Settings, wireless and networks, WCDMA only. Drains more battery but I cannot stand phones switching constantly.
