    Hi all. Since carrier update 5.6 I will have my 3G for a few hours then it'll go to Edge. I have to turn on Airplane mode and then turn it off to reset the network. Then it'll work for a few more hours then leave again. Anyone in the PA/NJ area also having this problem or is it just my cell tower?

    Did you restore from a backup or do a clean install setting up as a new phone?

    I've been having this same problem, I'm doing a DFU restore for the second time to see if it won't solve this problem. It happens almost during or at the end of EVERY call so its extremely frustrating!

    Dammit, I knew I should have looked up results before I updated to 5.6....I have not had any 3G drop issues yet though. I have the 5.5 file at home I can upload if you all need it.

    Thanks but all seems well today. Maybe yesterday they were doing something in my area. Anyway it hasn't dropped out for nearly 15 hours now so I think I'm good.
