3G on Droid X - Useless


Can someone tell me whether it is the phone (Droid X) or the 3G service is bad?

1. 80% of the time i get only 1X connection speed and virtually no bar in my phone. I get so many call drops and browsing is real slow.

2. GPS and maps stalls every other time trying to find the satellite even on clear day.

Hello diesel_kg! I'm sorry to hear about your service. Does the signal problem occur in a specific location or area? Have you recently downloaded any new applications? Try running your phone in safe mode to see if your signal improves. Keep me posted. ^CM

Re: 3G on Droid X - Useless

pardon me stealing a thread but I have the same issue

I did try uninstalling apps, resetting the phone, clearing the cache, upgrade roaming... basically, everything I can think of. there is no real pattern for me (or my wife). I live in S/E PA, in a metro city. Strong signal at times and then nothing - to 1x. I read in here about the throttle back theory but ever if that were true, our shared is just over a gig per month - mainly because we go to wireless whenever we can due to the low signal.

last time I did a hard reset - and wiped my sd, my logins were all still there so I'm not sure if it really reset everything??

It seems to have gotten much worse after the latest upgrade.
