First question is this phone WiFi ONLY? My old phone which was a blackberry could access the internet at my house without all this wifi, tethering, etc nonsense.
I cannot get any WiFi connection at my house. Is there a way to connect to net without WiFi or am I going to have to get a different phone?
You have a Droid X2 ? Internet access is via EITHER WiFi (if you turn it on) or the 3G data connection. If you turn WiFi on, it won't use 3G ... So make sure WiFi is turned OFF to use 3G.
Of maybe you have an incorrect SETTING ? Settings / Wireless & Network Settings / Mobile Networks ... do you have that in HOME ONLY or Automatic? Should be AUTO.
Very strange ... yea, I'd try that *228 + 1 thing (again). Also, option 2 will reset your "tower access" points. But you should AT least have a 3G signal to start with. Where did you get the phone? a Verizon store? online? if none of that works and it's brand new (<14 days old), I'd take it to verizon and get a new replacement. If > 14 days, you can get a CPO.
Have you tried a HARD RESET?

Thank you everyone for the information provided. Rkin56, is the Internet on your device still not working after following the steps provided by the community? If so, please send me a private message with your mobile number and I will contact you directly to resolve this issue.
Thanks for your feedback tcmpdx. Where exactly were you traveling at when you had the issues with no internet access? Are you still experiencing the issues? Depending on your location, this can contribute to the connection issue. I would try power cycling your device to refresh connections to see if it allows you internet access. I am providing a link to our coverage map that perhaps address your concerns of where you were traveling to see if there was coverage in that location. Please put in your location or zip code to check the coverage location. You could also put in the areas were you were traveling to then be provided with coverage information from those areas as well.

Hi. My name is Richard Savel. I see on the internet that I am not alone in having problems with internet on my new droid x2. I live on upper west side of manhattan. Since May 28, I have been unable to have normal speeds for 3g downloads on my new droid x2. The local verizon store already replaced the phone, thinking it was the phone. It is not. I work as a physician at in the Bronx, and this device works fine up there. Now I am back on the upper west side, and again, my 3g speeds for web, android market, etc are almost zero. I have an open ticket number . Please, at least tell me this is not my phone problem. There was a droid x2 in the verizon store right near where I live that was doing the same thing.
Please tell me you will look into it, and I will be able to use my phone again soon for web.
Thank you so very very much. I am extremely appreciative of your help.
