My 3G drops or turns offs every once in a while. Won't come back unless I restart my Droid. Anyone else having the problem. (Stock Droid/Never rooted) And I have tried removing all my apps, and it still will do it.
I see that happen when I have WiFi turned on.
If it picks up a WiFi signal and connects, the 3G will go away and you now are on WiFi..
This is normal. The phone will use the WiFi connection over the 3G when it is connected to a WiFi connection.
I actually keep my wifi turned off unless I am going to connect to a network. I don't leave it turned on to auto connect. Yet as I agreed with the original poster I have this problem. I'm unsure about their situation. No complaints about it. Though the random reboots from 2.1 is what is annoying.
What I use to do was turn on wifi (with an available network) and then once it was connected turn it back off. Use to work but sometimes doesn't anymore. I'll try the airplane mode (never thought of that).
