    anyone who's having a similar issue, where all of a sudden your 3G icon is gone and all you get is 1x. Try this..

    I can't get 3G, only 1X. HELP! - CyanogenMod Forum

    seems practical, and even though my phone was already set to "automatic", re-setting it to "automatic" seems to have fixed it.
    everything seems back to normal. 3G icon reappeared almost instantly and notifications came in.

    here's the instructions..

    I had the same problem today, but looks like I was able to get my 3g working. Ran across
    another thread

    where they mentioned going into the DATA settings (##3282#) and changing the EVDO setting from "CDMA" to "Automatic."

    On CM7 I first used MSL Reader from the market to get my MSL/password, performed a backup using ClockworkMod, and then restored back to my default Sense image. (##3282# doesn't work from CM7). I then made the EVDO change from CDMA to Automatic, and then restored my CM7 image using ClockworkMod once again.

    This time I now get my usual 3g indicator, instead of the 1x indicator I was getting originally.
