    So while my 4 is connected to 3G, it just churns away in safari or speed tests, full bars.

    When I connect it to the edge, it works like it should. I can also make phone calls with the 3g on, but not use the internet at all.

    Any ideas?

    This is without even having the phone in my hand. I dont think this is related to all other issues with reception.

    Jailbroken?

    If you restored from a jailbroken backup that is likely the case. Check your mms/vvm and see if they are working. If not, you will likely need to restore as a new phone.

    Hi, does the internet all of a sudden start working if you try to use it during a phone call?

    It should stop working again after the phone call has ended.

    my phone and the replacement both exhibit this behavior. (both non-jailbroken)

    I will try that in a minute, I just did a "erase everything" from the phone. As for JBing, its a 4, so there is no way thats done yet.

    EDIT: no, I did a "new" phone setup, no backups present on the mac.

    a reset network settings seems to have fixed the problem for now..my first phone worked for about 15 mins after each reboot before...so we'll see if the problem shows up again.

    I have the same issue. I took it back to ATT and they tried a new sim card, but that didn't work. After staring at it for a while the guy didn't have any ideas and said I'd have to exchange it. Of course, they have none in stock so I'll have to either deal with the masses on Tuesday or just order a new one and wait.

    it seems to work while on a test call. I have a feeling that its something to do with iOS4 on the new phones. Ill just wait for apple to fix it :(

    No recepetion issues here thank god.

    Just tested it after I hung up, and back to not working. HoHum.

    I feel much better that Im not alone, Im submitting a bug report to apple now. I suggest anyone do the same. Please reference my Bug ID if you like #8132303

    Summary: Anytime I am on the 3G connection, the internet does not work, however making a phone call will. If I access the internet while on the phone, it will work just fine. Edge works the way it should.

    Steps to Reproduce: Turn 3G data connection on, access safari, just sits there.

    Expected Results: Internet should load random pages.

    Actual Results: Internet sits at 0%, and does not move progress bar.

    Wifi/Edge work the way they should. I do not lose the 3G signal when attempting to access the internet, and my Bars are full. Call clarity is amazing.

    Mine is very hit and miss with 5 bars right now too. I'm posting this on 3G though. We'll see how long it takes to actually post. Earlier today it was screaming. Much faster than my 3GS and I was loving it. Wondering if it's ATT.

    I believe I have the same issue. sometime the page will partially load, but never fully. If I switch to edge it will load. 3GS was fine in this location (at desk in office). I have tried resetting network setting but with no remedy.

    Let me know if you solve the problem. I'm going to try a full drunken restore when I get a chance later tonight.

    I've had the same exact problem. What's weird is that it was fine yesterday, and horrible today. Thanks for submitting a bug report, and hopefully it's resolved soon.

    I have mobile me.

    I suspect AT&T.

    On a somewhat related note this thing grabs wifi better than my 3GS. I couldn't get it from my desk before. Now I get a reasonably steady signal on it.

    I think its an ATT problem right now.

    I keep seeing this "Broken Pipe" in the Apple Iphone config util.

    I have mobile me.

    My fiancee has an iPhone 4 without mobile me. I will be able to compare later tonight and will post back with the results.

    I had the same problem yesterday as I do today. Granted it was late in the day yesterday.

    Where are you all located--Long Island, NY here.

    Yeah, I believe the trouble is AT&T. My iPhone was fine yesterday and Wednesday on 3G.

    My issues seem to be isolated to a specific cell tower, as I don't have the problem if I drive about 2 miles north of the tower I was connected to.
