    sometimes i would have perfect 5 bar 3g signal. then out of no where i stop getting internet. i still continue to have 5 3g bars. but no internet connectivity at all in any app. usually switching 3g off and back on works. sometimes i have to restart the phone. is this normal or what? and it does it even if i'm not jailbroken

    It's a hiccup most likely. And to the poster above me, that comment you made is ignorant. This situation can happen to any carrier, just not AT&T.

    just a little sarcasm to spice up the night.

    anywho, i do realize it can happen on any carrier which is why i ditched Verizon and have had perfect service with AT&T ever since.

    I have this problem quite often myself - just now I was sitting at my desk with 5 bars of 3G and couldn't get online. Is this really an AT&T problem or is it a hardware issue? I turned airplane mode on and off and I was able to get online but I shouldn't have to do that. I had called Apple and AT&T about this issue and they recommended turning my phone off every day (I've never been told that before) and cleaning out my Safari history, cookies, etc. once a week or so. I really questioned the Safari thing because that should have no effect on the ability of other programs to access the internet. I shouldn't have to clear out my Safari history to use the Sirius/XM app - that makes no sense to me.
