Odd issue here.. I have a G2 running 2.2 .. At times the network will drop, and stay down. if I reboot the phone, it comes back up ok. I have been unable to find any referece to a bug that might be causing this. Any ideas?
I'm sounding off to confirm that its not a device issue. I've seen this happen often on my G2, and when I broke it and fell back to my Mytouch 3G it still happened. Now that I have the replacement G2 it still happens.
For me it occurs when commuting home in the greater SoCal region, I pass through an area of non HSPA coverage. In fact I lose coverage for seconds at a time (mountainous area). Once I return to an area of rich coverage its still not there.
I have discovered that it only affects data and not phone calls or text. I have received calls and text while the devices were not showing the E and H icon respectively. Its random for me, no telling when it will drop the data connection.
I'm having the same problem here. I work in Bloomington, Minnesota where HSPA+ coverage is excellent. The data "H" icon would sometimes disappear all together, or it would time out and the icon would show that it's stuck only transmitting data all the time. No downlink whatsoever. I've called T-Mobile about this numerous times. Now they've finally taken my complaint to the Engineering level. I'll get a callback sometime in the future to see if the engineers find anything wrong with the towers around the area I work.
So far I like the G2, but I'm seriously starting to like the BlackBerry Bold 9780 better since it has the revamped BBOS6. I played with it at the T-Mobile store today in Plymouth. I liked it a lot. Too bad I still need to pay off the full price of my G2 since I'm on the Even More Plus plan. I'm thinking about trading my G2 for a 9780..
