Fixing the Nexus One 3G connectivity problem
posted by Alan F. / Jan 19, 2010, 11:24 PM
First, go into settings. Select "Wireless and Networks" . Choose the "Mobile Networks" option near the bottom. Go into the "Network Operators section and the handset will start looking for GSM networks near you. When the search is complete, click on "Select Automatically". The phone will respond "Registered on network".
That's it! It worked for Kevin and it could work for you. Let us know if your Nexus One now can grab and hold onto your 3G connection.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but shouldn't a phone already be able to "automatically" look for and connect to the network it's on? IMO, Google and HTC should have worked just a tad harder at making sure something like this doesn't happen...especially since the damn thing is a PHONE in the first place. Making sure a phone registers and stays connected with a 3G signal seems like a pretty essential part of releasing a phone to the public; especially when it is being touted as the new, amazing, wonder-phone that was/is.

Yeah, it might make sense for an unlocked phone, and I dislike Apple, but if you are trying to steal market share from the iPhone, wouldn't you want to ensure that the user experience is seamless and more importantly: geared for the genreally impatient non-techie iPhone user?

I admit it's kind of stupid for HTC and Google to not have the phone set to automatically search for 3g networks, but it's being blown way out of proportion, the fix is easy and right in the software, you literally just have to go into a settings menu, and press the screen a few times. You have google search...use it.
