i've been manhandling the phone all day. no dropped data or calls at all besides the usual dead zones. I'm in Northern NJ so service is pretty solid up here.

I'm in singapore - had same issue. No 3G/4G data. Calls ok, wifi ok. A reboot fixes the issue.

Not On G3, But Previous Phones
I had this happen occasionally on a Droid RAZR., Always assumed it was something between the phone and the network. It only happened every couple months and a reboot always fixed the issue. Haven't had it happen on the G3. Live near Washington DC. Pretty good coverage.

This is seen on the T-Mobile D851 variant as well.

One way that fixes the data issue is to enable Airplane Mode and then disable it (immediate enable and then disable does it, no wait time for a reset). Fixes the loss of the data connection with no reboot required.

You can try that and see if works as well.

Fast Dormancy?
I wonder whether disabling fast dormancy would resolve the issue? If your mobile data provider does not implement fast dormancy then it needs to be disabled on the phone.

I get the fast dormancy option via the hidden menu (3845#*855# on my D855, replace with your model number), then Settings, then Fast Dormancy. Needs a reboot to apply.

You will need to Google if your mobile provider supports fast dormancy.

Worth a try.
