    Hey all,

    I was wondering if anyone has had the following issue. I'm not too familiar with T-Mobile yet, and how it's service behaves.

    The HD7 has been great, but today it was hard getting search results, using bing or google. The pages wouldn't even partially load after entering a search parameter. Other times I got a message like "cellular data connection unavailable at this time" or "Bing Search Results Unavailable at this Time"

    The strange thing was, that certain bookmarks, like the college football scores on Yahoo Sports, worked pretty well.

    In addition, I was trying to do most searches on a Saturday afternoon.

    Is this more of a T-Mobile issue? or a Phone issue? Any thoughts? Thanks.

    Try powering the device down, and restarting it. It seems as if there is a small bug which makes the phone think there is no signal when there really is, especially if you tried using data in a low signal area. Worth a try though.

    Oh...and Let's Go Pens! ;)

    I haven't noticed this problem myself.

    overall, I'm not impressed with the reception on this phone, seems at least 25% worse than my hd2 for signal. I'm hoping a radio update will come soon and improve it.

    Overall, I've been happy with the connection. When it's working, it's screaming fast.

    When I was at the mall on Saturday, I wasn't getting a connection, and was getting really annoyed. However, it's to be expected. No carrier is perfect. Even when I was on Verizon, home of the "best network", I would lose my data connection from time to time.

    I will try powering down from time to time.

    Voice service has been flawless so far.

    P.S. maybe we should turn this into a hockey thread!

    Agreed--my data performance is not as smooth, even sometimes on Wifi, compared to the Focus.

    Haven't noticed anything myself, except for a bit of lag when I'm using YouTube over 3g. i think that has more to do with mobile than anything.

    Early adopters usually get all the bugs and device issues anyway so I was prepared for this.
