    Hey guys,

    i'm having a problem where after a working session internet usage (via EDGE), then i put the iphone on sleep (Off button on top).

    Say i leave the phone for an hour or so and turn it back on... the internet seems stall i can't even check the weather the spinning wheel beside the signal bar just keep on spinnin forever..

    currently i got a workaround to use airplane mode and the internet connection will work fine until i put it on sleep...

    i was just wondering if anyone is having this problem?

    The network you're on might drop you from the EDGE connection when you haven't used it for a certain amount of time, and kick you to a simple GSM connection. Just go online on your phone for a few seconds and it should reconnect.

    I'd say that's probably a software problem then. Unlikely to be hardware related. You could always try restoring your iPhone to the latest software and seeing if it's fixed. Has it always been like this?
