    It just sounds like there is a local problem with your towers serving the 3G signal. I would contact at&t and complain, perhaps sending someone to investigate.

    has happened to me too... i doubt it will ever be fixed. just turn 3G on/off to get it back. annoying, i know.

    You'll get this issue any time the 3G network says it is nearly full. Ultimately, the network does decide whether you go on 2G or 3G, and will load balance. If it seems way more people are on 3G and very little activity is on 2G, it's going to start punting people onto EDGE and GSM, even if the signal is strong.
