    My iPhone 4 (CDMA) on verizon has been dropping to 2G (1xRTT) allot lately...I think its weird because when he does it shows the connection to the 2G network as very strong (4-5 bars) just like the 3G (EvDO) network. Its not getting in the way right now as I am at home but when I am away I have to toggle airplane mode like 3 times to get it to switch...I just think its weird. Any advice? Yes I have the latest software update...Just want to make sure I don't have to take it in as I am still in the 30 day range. (Though I wouldn't mind trading for a white iPhone 4 :D :D).

    My iphone 4 loses data after a connection to wlan. No airplane, nor data or auto 3g button can reactivate it. If i'm not on wireless i have to reboot to use the data services.

    P.S. JB phone here

    I should mention my phone is "clean" of Jailbreaking.

    I'm curious too. But keep in mind NY is a BIG area....its not like NYC cell backhaul is even remotely connected to the small suburban town I live in.

    I'm not sure what to think but honestly I don't have problems with data rates (other than slow on 2G), phone calls or txt messages so I don't think thats the case.
