Can anyone help me or have any suggestions? My brand new 9700 is not holding a 3G signal. I have full EDGE and am in a area that has 3G lit up like a christmas tree! If I restart or battery pull the phone it shows 3G but goes away after a minute or so. I just want my 3G to work!!! I love this phone!!!

My experience has been that sometimes the 3G does cut out, especially when in a building. It doesn't seem necessarily to be based on signal strength. It's held onto a 3G signal with 2 bars, but sometimes it's cut out at 4 bars. I'm wondering what the signal strength indicator is really measuring. My suspicion is that it really measures EDGE/GPRS signal strength and not 3G strength.
BTW I'm on .344 OS.
Im in NYC and have had 3G since last Friday..Its never reverted to edge. However, speedtests ive performed with extremelabs have shown dismal/poor download/upload speeds....At this point IMHO believe Tmobs 3G has something to be desired....Love the 9700 not certain about tmob 3G...The very reason i switched from the 8900
My 3G on my G1 works Almost...ALMOST! KINDA!!! everywhere flawlessly....But it is slow sometimes....But sometimes you gotta think...its never gonna be as fast as i want it when i want it. Im usually left frustrated and waiting on occasion...o well whatever....lol
