    No Data Connection. Help!

    Tonight, my DX 3G connection went away while browsing and went to '1x'. After a minute or so, it would not receive data but only send data.

    I tried to cycle the '3G' button on my switch widget. It turned off but would not turn back on. The indicator below the switch would just illuminate for a second and then turn off. I then tried to shutdown and pull the battery but had the same result. After about 5 attempts to turn on the '3G' switch, I would get a 1x connection for about a minute. Right before the 1x connection dies, it goes to 3G for a second.

    I attempted recycling the mobile network checkbox in settings to no avail. I went into airplane mode for about 30 seconds, but still no data connection. I then restored a nandroid backup from a month ago, but I have the same results. I have tried leaving the battery out for an extended period of time, also. I am in a metro area and had full signal prior to this event. I did notice that during the 1x connection, my cell signal was jumping around a lot but seemed to stabilize once the data connection died.

    My next step is to SBF to factory unless someone can come up with something.

    Please Help!

    Dial *228 and press 2 for update roaming. Also if your area is about to get 4g when they do their test sometimes it screws with peoples service.

    I had a similiar issue today after I revamped my phone again. No calls, texts, web, nothing. Did the *228 and I'm good again. Btw, I'm rooted, so I would say that yeah, you should be fine. Give it a try and let us know what happens.

    My data service returned on it's own. However, I went ahead with the *228 successfully. I reckon it was a fluke but it kind of freaked me out. Thank you very much for your quick responses!
