Every day when I am actively using my phone, once or twice I'll notice that the HSPA or LTE icon will disappear for a few seconds, I'll lose my data connection, and a few seconds later the HSPA or LTE icon will come back and I'll have data again. Signal bars do not change, only the data icon disappears.

Happens a few times pretty much every day, and I usually have good signal strength (full bars) when it happens, so signal strength is not the issue.

I'm on the .93 firmware on AT&T in the U.S.

Anybody else seeing this behavior?

I have the same, I am on the Three network in the UK. Although I have been having the same on every phone with this sim in. It's a network issue..

I don't necessarily think it's a network issue for everybody. I've switched my SIM between my Z3C and my iPhone a couple of times and I've never had the problem on iPhone, or on any other Android phone I've used in the past for that matter...

I get this on talk mobile (virtual vodafone) - I've only noticed it at work and it's very repeatable every 10 minutes or so it drops 3g for a couple of seconds - I notice it because it then triggers my VPN to re-initiate. It's a carry over Sim (cut down) from the Galay s2 I was using previously.
