    All of a sudden my apps do not work properly if I am not connected to wifi. I can still make/receive calls & texts at anytime.
    For example: I went to use the maps & directions when driving home, it could not verify my location. I tried using Soundhound off my car radio, it said the signal was weak. ESPN app was not getting updated scores.

    Even my emails are not coming through on 3G.

    I have full bars and the "3G" on the top of my home screen.

    Assuming you've already tried the obvious, like powering off/on (not just putting the phone to sleep, but a full reboot) and a hard reset:

    Try "reset network settings" under the Settings -> Reset menu. You may need to reenter any wifi passwords afterwards, I can't remember, so have them handy. But that cleared the issue for me when I had it happen a couple of months back, and it will not erase any other data from your phone. (Don't touch any other options on that page though, especially the "Erase all content" one!)

    What firmware version are you on?

    If you are on iOS 5, you're SOL. I'm not dealing with that.
