I know there's another thread talking about a signal strength issue (http://forums.windowscentral.com/titan/183648.htm), but this isn't quite the same problem I'm having. I live and work in downtown Chicago, and oftentimes the data connection simply refuses to work. By that I mean I'm getting "page cannot be displayed" errors in IE, the marketplace doesn't work, etc. I also had the exact same issue with the Focus S, which leads me to think it's AT&T's fault, rather than the phone. If I go out to the countryside, er, suburbs ;), I find the connection to be much more reliable.
I compared the phone against my friend's original Focus once, and he pulled up the page immediately while my phone couldn't do squat. I'm thinking it's something to do with the HSPA+ service. So my question is: Does anyone here, who lives in a large city, have any issues like mine? I know AT&T's service is normally pretty bad (I just switched from T-Mobile), but I doubt it's consistently this bad.

I have an unlocked At&T version of the Titan, not the European version.
Rogers uses the same 850; 1900 frequencies.
The signal strength meter tells me I have a strong signal but I have no data connection.
Wifi and Bluetooth are off.
Airplane mode is off.
I've tried pulling the battery and a full reset, no joy.
I'll talk to Rogers tomorrow but since they don't carry the phone I doubt there's much they'll be able to do.
Am I missing anything or is this phone destined to be returned?

I didn't have the APN set correctly for my carrier [Rogers]
The solution is outlined below:
From: HC - NO "i"' on Howardforums
Have you checked with the APN?
APN Type: Internet
Not all the parameters listed above were available to me, but only the second line (in bold) was necessary:
After that, it all worked as advertised!
