Whenever I go to the city and try to use my 3G internet, it does not work. That includes web browser, facebook, and all the essential apps that makes a smart phone useful. This has happened to me on multiple occasions already. I would have full reception with the 3G logo activated, but getting no internet at all. Things I have tried includes restarting my phone and updating my PRL. They both don't work. The strange thing is this only happens when I am in San Francisco. My friends that have Droid or BB all have internet using Verizon, but I don't get anything. It is embarrassing to have a smart phone and not have internet. If anyone knows how to fix this, please let me know. I would really appreciate your help. Thanks in advance. P.S If you have 3G internet with a Palm Pre, please also post. I would like to have some hope. 😃
Erummm.... The Palm Pre Plus 3G has worked fine for me up and down the CA coast, (primarily in the San Diego area). Sounds like you may need to take a trip back down to the store for an explanation and possible device swap.
Try doing a battery pull while the device is powered on, wait 5 seconds and place the battery back in. Power the device on and try accessing the internet. If this does not help, I would recommend you take the device to a local store to have a technician look at it.
