The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

    I’ve had a SGSII and a Galaxy Nexus on Three. Both had issues where data stops, requiring a reboot. It’s due to a slight incompatibility between the way Samsung radios handle switching between masts and the way Threes masts are set up.

    I got a refund after 4 months of waiting for a software fix, which I believe still has’t arrived.

    Experience tells me that if you drive around, or live in an area with weak signal meaning you’ll be changing masts, you can kiss goodbye to internet services unless you have the thing in your hand and turned on (ie. no IM, email, maps, Latitude, Spotify etc).

    Either get an HTC or use a different network. Samsung and Three do not work together at all.

    1. I have a Galaxy note and a HTC Desire both on one plans in three and my samsung galaxy note gets better signal reception on three than my desire. I frequently have to use the phone in a building with poor signal for all networks and often have a signal near some windows hovering just above -113dbm and phone works fine if i can get a signal. They are a pure 3g network and dont have the 2g backup they used to have from other networks in most areas but still have it in some areas. Data speeds are decent at above 5mbps for downloads and 2.5mbps for uploads usually. On three network supplied phones they somehow seem to be getting the phone to stick to 3g signal even in weak areas and if you lose signal it keeps trying to get the same signal instead of using prl settings for 2g signal of prl provider.

      On my desire if i went into the settings while codes *#*#4636#*#* and then choose phone settings and scroll down and in the options provided for data switch if you choose gsm auto prl instead of wcdma only then switch is faster for prl provider roaming signal (but without roaming charges) in poor signal areas when you lose signal.

      If you were losing data often guess your problem was being in an area with 2g signal where only voice or data can work by turns and not together because most networks havent opted for the dual transfer mode for 2g signals (look it up in gsm organisation publications), only vodafone had done some trials in past for dual transfer mode but as far as i am aware no one had implemented the software update yet, so in poor signal areas when one loses 3g signal and gets 2g signal then data is flaky as data and voice cant go together unless dual transfer mode has been implemented for 2g signal or it takes turns leading to intermittent dropped calls or dropped data. This applies to any networks 2g signal unless they have implemented dual transfer mode software update for their systems as per gsm organisation documentation. (you need to register with them to be able to download the documentation. registration was free) Problem on all networks has been well documented in many forums including xda few years ago. But changing via test codes the setting to gsm auto prl improved the signal availability of prl provider and i have posted this on xda and moneysavingexpert forums a few years ago after comparing 2 desire phones, one with stock setting and one with gsm auto prl setting and the one with gsm auto prl setting got prl provider signal faster when 3g signal lot and consequently got better battery life too. Loads others who used that setting found same benefits too as seen in those forum posts. Do a google search if interested.

      Been on three for more than 5y with two contracts and getting data speeds of more than 5mbps using samsung phone and htc phone. data speed on my samsung note is faster than on my htc desire. Both unbranded handsets on stock firmware. So your assertion that samsung and three cant work together is erroneous.

  8. I’ve had an SGSII and a Galaxy Nexus on 3. The data on both freezes when changing network mast (ie when driving or in a weak signal area), meaning no notifications until you reboot. With the SGSII, Samsung and Three both admitted the slight incompatibility between Samsung Android and the Three network and after 5 months with no fix, refunded me.

    TL;DR Samsung Android handsets and 3 don’t work together properly. AVOID AT ALL COSTS.
