    Hi:

    On my bus commute to work, using my 2.1 Samsung Moment, I pass through some areas with less than ideal connectivity. Sometimes when I'm accessing a news app, an exclamation point appears and I lose all connectivity. I usually have to restart the phone to regain connectivity. Is there any other way to regain web access other than restarting the phone?

    Thanks,

    Tom

    Hi:

    I lost connectivity again today. With 2.1, once you hit a blind spot, it shuts down connectivity and seemingly the only way to get back on line is to restart the phone. I tried turning Airplane mode off and on but had no luck. If it keeps on happening, I'll look into rooting and evdo fix.

    Thanks,

    Tom
