    Now that my area has 3G I have noticed something. Some mornings I awake and my phone will only connect to Edge (2G). The fix so far has been to simply power cycle (off/on) the phone. I use my G1 as my bedside radio now so it's possible to go several days without even thinking about rebooting. My hunch is that Tmo has a time limit for staying connected to 3G.

    I live in DC and have 3G continously ... I can go days without rebooting and not loose 3G connectivity ... so may still be a bit on the fringe in you area ..

    Thanks, Jim could be. Both G1s in our house behave this way.

    Oops -- maybe I need coffee. I intended to post this in the Tips and Tricks section.

    instead of rebooting everytime you lose 3g just use anycut to put WCDMA only:)

    Mine goes between edge and 3g in my bedroom but I think its because the signal gets fairly weak in my room sometimes. Maybe its signal based for 3g.
