    Well I guess I have to join the Mercury 3g-fail-club. I'll try restart connection app. My thing is that i updated from zio and it still has internet. also the zio isn't having as much 3g failing as this one. Altho it did fail. I wish there is a way to tweak my internet with my rooted phone

    I hear ya Derrick... I too upgraded from the Zio and have noticed that the Wi-Fi antenna isn't as strong as the Zio's and same with data disconnecting more often than I ever had with the Zio (POS). Well maybe not data disconnecting but it sure seems to go dormant (white) a lot of the times.

    I'm having major issues with mine. I'm having the account checked today to make sure everything is set up correctly. It's a dealer demo line so I have no access to the account and that really sux sometimes. This phone has a data switch, I can turn 3g off and back on and connect for a short time then it drops again!

    These were so incredibly hard to read. And when I am able to muddle through, it still makes no sense.

    There are no 4g phones yet for Cricket and there are no other markets getting lit up until Tuscon has been fully tested with the modem. Last Word from Cricket was mid 2012 for a LTE phone.
    And whats all this bs about prices going up. Metro has lte in a bunch of markets and they didn't raise their prices. Verizon didnt raise their prices(well with the new data plans you could say they did i guess), and neither did AT&T.

    My mercurys 3g just stopped working since trying it this morning, my dad has another mercury he just got and his 3g is still working fine in the same household. This happened after letting my phones battery die for the first time yesterday. It was in power saving mode when it died and I get 2-4 bars were I'm at, just no 3g. Trying airplane mode didn't work. (*neither did restart connection, it's been out for at least 3 hours now)

    *found out the problem, data was disabled in mobile network settings. Stock power saving mode bug? I turned on the power saving mode when my phone was about to die, it died, and when I recharged it and turned off the power saving mode it didn't re-enable the data access setting.

    I switched to another Mercury and had my account checked and refreshed! Still dealing with the 3g issue
    Maybe the box of phones I received are all crap! The first box received at my other store seem to be fine. My wife and daughter both have one and they are rocking 3g when I'm looking for a WiFi signal. This really sux!

    So it is the phone? Or just the service?

    I wish I knew! I was using a flashed EVO 4g before the Mercury. The EVO was dropping 3g also.

    It might be to early to say "everything is fine here" but so far I haven't noticed any unusual issues with the Mercury and 3g / WiFi, Yesterday a friend bought a new router and we were comparing speedtest results in various spots of his house via WiFi, our phones were getting nearly identical speedtest results and signal strength readings, In the living room area we were both only getting 1 or 2 wifi bars but the connection was still fairly good, he has a Samsung Moment.

    As for 3G I did have it drop to 1X mode once while on the road but it flipped back to 3G shortly after, My first 3G capable phone from Cricket did the same thing fairly often (non-android / samsung messenger II).

    I am also having problems with my 3g connection it keeps cutting off the other cricket phones in the house are still working so I'm confused, I have never had this problem and I have been with cricket for about 5 years.
