Google had hoped that the launch of their Nexus One phone would be a smooth one, but if we have learned anything about these latest Smartphone releases, this rarely happens. It seems that a number of users have been experiencing some problems with 3G, which they have been posting on the Google Mobile Help Forum.
Those who lose their 3G reception on their Google Nexus One phone will been pushed on to EDGE, which we know is much slower. The reason is still unknown as to why this is happening, but according to an article on nexus404.com, the problem lies with T-Mobile.
The article states that one Google-branded phone user contacted HTC about the 3G issue, they were then told that they needed to talk to T-Mobile. Reading between the lines, it seems that HTC is putting the blame onto T-Mobile’s 3G network.
A number of users are not convinced, one owner managed to get HTC to replace their handset this has certainly complicated matters. Another user tried to contact both HTC and T-Mobile; neither company was of any help.
Most Google Nexus One owners agree that it has to be a problem with the phone, either a hardware or software issue. It is not nice that users are being pushed between T-Mobile and HTC, but how can it be an issue for the cell phone carrier if the same issue is not happening with their G1?
Let us know if you are experiencing a loss of 3G on your Nexus One.
