    Default 3G connection on my iPhone 3Gs

    So last night around 9pm (UK time) my phone decided to drop all signal and hang on searching all the way through to me ringing Orange about half an hour ago.

    Anyway Orange told me to turn off 3g and I got a signal they then said to do a soft reset and then re-activate 3g. So I did all this and re-activated it and wow for a few minutes it worked then dropped again. So right now am sat on a 2g connection not any real difference I know but my main question iPhone users is this have any of you had this problem where 3g just fails to pick a signal at all and leaves the phone searching for a signal? If you have how did you resolve it?

    Much love and thanks if you can help me

    Well I initially thought something like that may be the problem but then when it worked on 2g I thought maybe not but am not great on these sort of things so would 2g work even if there was a problem?

    Just switched 3g back on, again, and it seems to be doing good now. God dam you Orange!!

    the switch usually happens when the 2g signal is stronger than the 3G, theres no way that you can "lock" you phone to 3g signal only unless you jailbreak your phone and do this tweak: http://dailyiphoneblog.com/2009/12/2...able-gsm-edge/
