    Default Doesn't want to stay on 3G!!!

    I would have my 3G then it would just switch to EDGE out of nowhere. Even a battery pull doesn't fix this issue. I usually don't have any problems because it always stays on 3G.

    I upgraded to .423 this morning, but this was happening to me before u upgraded.

    Anyone have this issue? Right now on my WIFI and I never use my WIFI at home since I got this phone.

    It sounds like you are not getting a good 3G signal in your area.

    You would probably be better off keeping Wi-Fi on if you have a Wi-Fi connection. Using the Wi-Fi will be fast, and you will save battery life. When the phone constantly searches for a 3G signal when it is not available and switches back and forth from 3G to EDGE, your battery will drain really fast.

    It happens from time to time. If it loses 3G and stays on EDGE for over 10-20 minutes, the I would contact your carrier and make sure there are no issues in your area. But usually(90%) it's just bad reception and happens from time to time.
