Hey guys, i've just received my desire today and been using my current data connection with no problem, except every time i try to open google maps, it comes up with the error "this application requires a data connection". I have updated the firmware to the lastest.

I have searched for this error but the only thing that will come up is about a data connection being dropped when trying to use google maps/gps... except my data connection stays 4 bars the whole time.

thanks, Brandon

Brandon, does the data connection works again after you stop Google Maps (without a reboot) ?
I have the same problem as you and only after reboot I have throughput again

Brandon,

I did a hard reset (return to factory settings ) on my Desire today and guess what:

Both my Data problems (no data after use of Wifi and or GPS) are gone !
Tested several times Wifi & GPS , also did a reboot and tested again, all seems working again, no more 3G data problem anymore.

So I guess one of the extra apps I installed caused the 3G Data Connection issue.

I'll reïnstall them one by one to see if I can catch the "guilty" one.

I also hope that problem doesn't return after a while without a cause.

I have tried this method. Everything was fine - my phone (rooted Samsung galaxy core duos JB 4.1.2) got faster. But google maps can't connect. I am stuck at the screen where you have to accept the terms and coditions (as it is launched for the first time).
Hope someone has encountered and fixed this error.
