Do I need signal in order to use data connection? Because I was an area that had signal come in and out and I tried using IE but it wouldn't connect.
Well you need to make sure it shows 3G or E to be sure that there is a data connection. If not, then for the most part there's no connection, and no connection means no internet. So yeah you got that one all on your own champ! Lol
Aww what a bummer! I always thought they were on separate connections or something :P Is there a way around, or not?
oh absolutely not the bars need to be there or there is no signal whatsoever the bars is the flow of data to the device, while the 3G, E or G is what type of data is getting to it. if there is no icon next to the bars then all you have is voice capababilities and no data.
