    The 3g problem is well known but I haven't seen any mention the problem I have which is when I'm on a call in a 3g area then move to a 2g area and back to the 3g area I have to hang up the phone in order to get 3g again,how many of you guys experience this?

    it sounds like you are on the ATT network. the att network is not configured to transfer a call from GSM back to 3G during a call. but it can go the other way during a call, from 3G to gsm. the network is just not yet setup for this, but it will be at some point in the future, probably when ATT feels its network is ready.

    note this is common to ALL phones on att, not just the nexus one.

    you beat me to it. lol

    Yes, as RogerPodacter said, any phone on AT&T's network has no problem handing off from 3G to 2G/2.5G during a call but cannot switchover in the opposite direction. This is a network limitation and not a problem with your Nexus One.

    t-mobile is setup the same as ATT, meaning the network is not configured to hand off in that direction during a call.

    should have clarified that AT&T was being used more for example purposes than as the culprit. It's just GSM technology.
