Thanks, that is weird though. I've had the 3G, 3Gs and now the 4s and this is the first time I've seen that icon. I got a little paranoid, thought it was some sort of tracking icon that records everything I do and go. Lol.....GPRS. It's an old 2G network. You'll connect to it when you're in an area where 3G isn't available but GPRS is.
sometimes, not evertime, but a lot when my phone goes to "E" or the circle I do a hard reset and it comes back up on the 3G network and usually staysThis is getting annoying... I know I'm inside of a 3g network but I'm noticing it is constantly switching to the slower/older network as I questioned in the first post.
Is there a way to disable it so it stays on 3g? There shouldn't be any reason for it to switch back and forth like that, slowing down my connection.
Try going into "Airplane" mode, wait about 20 seconds, then turn off "Airplane" mode. This should do the equivalent of an "ipconfig release/renew" and reconnect to the network.That's what I've been doing... hard resets, and they get tiresome pretty quick. Was hoping if there was an actual toggle other than the EDGE toggle which is ineffective at this point. I'll keep doing the hard resets if that's the only way, but I won't be pleased about it... I mean, who else would? LOL
