Re: iPhone 3g Connection Problems
AT&T doesn't have good 3G service. Often you may find that you do not have 3G reception, and the phone switches to EDGE. This is not a problem with the iPhone. I live in a metropolitan area, so I do not experience problems, since 3G coverage is good. However, when i travel around, often i go to EDGE as well. Like i said this is a problem with the network and not your phone.

Either you are in a poor reception area, or you have gsm only connected or your aerial on the phone is not making a proper connection due to recent water ingress or attempted dismantling.
you should be able to check 3G reception for your area over the Internet google 3G your location to ascertain if you get good coverage, if you do then it's probably the phone carrier settings, if they are correct then I would consider physical connection of aerial in phone.it is possible to add an aerial foil to improve reception in some phones or change carrier.
You need to disable 3G and VPN. To do so, go to Settings> General> Network. Make sure the "Enable 3G" option is turned off. Next, tap VPN at the bottom of the screen and make sure to turn it off too.
If the 3G and VPN are turned "ON", your iPhone will try to connect to the internet everytime it catches signal, normally this happens coz of Mail app and others that require internet connection.

Well the folks at ATT were useless. The person at the technology counter said she did not know about technology. She asked the other counter person who said just go to the Toyota dealer.
I call Apple and talked with Bryce. He said this was a very big problem effecting owners of BMW, Toyota, Infiniti. Apple is working on it he said.
He mentioned that when the G3 iphone came out it did not do this. Now it is massive.
Funny thing is, my phone did not do this originally. Now, 25 days into ownership it is Bluetooth worthless.
At least now we won't waiste time at ATT or the car dealer or reprogramming bluetooth connection.
unless the dock is made for the 3g version of the phone rather than the '2g' version it may not work and even if it recognises the phone will not 'charge' the battery this is due to the pins that received the 12 volts of many docks being disconected in the new 3g phone so you have to charge via a usb which uses other pins for this purpose
