Welcome to the new AT&T Community
We've got a fresh look! Take the tour to see what's new.
My MEdia Net internet access dies very frequently, in the middle of active use even.
The browser or other app will hang and then complain that there's no connection. Sure enough the 3G or E will disappear in the top right and then reappear after a minute or two. Sometimes it doesn't come back at all, and I either have to restart the phone or just leave it for an hour before I try using networking again.
I triple-checked my network settings and they are as specified: to the wap.cingular connection and with the standard proxy at wap.cingular also. I also reseated the SIM card in case it was somehow misbehaving.
This problem occurs whether I ask the browser to use WAP, The Internet, or to choose automatically.
It's a huge pain because not only do mail and web apps fail, but some apps don't fail gracefully: in particular Google Maps and IM+ just blow up or hang.
Is this a hardware problem? If not, is it a network problem that can be fixed with some configuration?
