    Hi All,

    I have an iPhone 4 on AT&T running iOS 4.2.1 jailbroken w/ greenpois0n. I've had it running like this perfectly for a while now, and yesterday I noticed that when I went to dinner, I wasn't getting e-mails on my phone all of a sudden. I glanced down and saw I didn't have any internet service. I figured that I was just in a bad spot, but when I got back to the hotel, I had the same issue. I've tried turning edge / 3G on/off, power-cycling the device, etc. I thought it was maybe a network issue so when i went to bed, I turned off the phone, and I turned it on again in the morning. Same issue. Then I went and reset all network settings - that didn't fix anything. Not sure which avenue to pursue next here, other than doing a full restore on the phone. I could do that, but the hotel internet is so darn slow that it would take me a while to download that big update. If I lose the jailbreak, i'll be pretty annoyed, but it won't be the end of the world. Has anyone seen this issue? I'm in Minneapolis right now, btw - as far as where i'm getting my service - or lack thereof. Thanks!

    I had this exact problem last night on my non-jailbreak 3GS running 4.3. It was right after the thunderstorms and I got a text from AT&T saying that they were having "weather-related data infrastructure issues." My texting and calling worked fine the entire time with 5 bars, but no data connectivity until about an hour ago.

    Ah okay - the weather out here has been pretty darn nasty - I figured it might be related to that, but I did some googling, and I couldn't find any other reports of this happening. What area are you located in? I guess i'll give it a day or so to correct itself.

    Hopefully that's the issue for you too. I'm in Dayton, Ohio so we've gotten the same storms after they're done with you. ;)

    Mods can close this thread. Here was the issue... I called AT&T to add a canada data plan, backdate it for my billing cycle, and then end it for the day i was calling. Instead of her ending canada data, she ended ALL data. MORON. So I called AT&T and after an hour or so, it was fixed.
