I have setup my VPN connection on my iPhone and it works fine, the only problem I am having is it keeps disconnecting after 2 or 3 mins and I have to reconnect again manually

what can I do to solve this?

My connection is through StrongVPN and is a L2TP connection

Shall I change it to PPTP you think?

Is the disconnection happening after inactivity or while you are actively using your device? My VPN will disconnect after a couple of minutes of inactivity. I'm here in China, and I have noticed lately that there do seem to be more problems with getting an initial connection, and disconnection after I have already connected. I hear this is due to increased efforts by the Chinese government to thwart VPNs. It's a real game of cat and mouse here.

I think most VPNs are set up to disconnect after some mins. of inactivity. I'm sure that mine, 12VPN, is by design. Also, you generally cannot download torrents without being cut off. This is also by design.
