    over the past few days i have noticed that if i lock my phone (or it auto locks).

    When i unlock then 3g/edge wont work (error of "cannot open page"). It will only start working after i restart the iphone, but once i lock it again and then unlock it does the same thing (not every single time, id say 6 out of 10 times it does it though)

    it does say ive got a 3g signal and also i know its not the network as my mate is sat next to me on his iphone and its working fine for him on 3g

    WiFi works as normal when connected...

    i am on 3.1.3(7e18) jailbroken with Spirit - 05.12.01

    o2 - UK PAYG, the apn settings are also correct

    EDIT: it now seems to not even work when i restart! again wifi is fine but on 3g/edge internet now dont work at all. I have just done a full restore so its non jailbroken etc and its still a issue

    Can anyone help as its driving me crazy!!

    Thanks in advance

    If I were in your position, first thing I'd do is restore the phone in iTunes and see if that fixes it. If it does you know it's not a problem you can take to Apple. If it doesn't, take it in.

    Then retry Spirit and see if anything changes.

    Then reload any JB apps and see if anything changes.

    You'll either fix the problem or you won't but at least you'll know where it comes from if it's still there.
