I have never encountered this on an iPhone 4 personally. Although, I did have this happen recently on my iPhone 4S, using an iOS 5.1 beta. Restarting solved the issue but I frequently lose the Internet connection since being on iOS 5.1, as johnr will recall. In that case I flick airplane mode on for 30~ seconds, then turn airplane mode off and it works again (for a while).

OP, have you had to unlock said phones?

This has been an issue since the new antenna design. The problem with the 4S might be the switching algorithm between the dual antennae. That is something apple will need to fix.

That could well be the case.

Handsets were purchased brand new from VF, so I am not sure exactly what I am meant to 'unlock', I thought that was only required for imported models from overseas networks.

Thats correct, I was just wondering if they we're locked or not. Well, that rules it out.

Mine's bought from Telecom, so clearly not "not unlocked properly" as it was never locked in the first place. It's also not running a beta. I have to admit, it looks like you're trying very hard to deflect blame away from Apple to every other possible part of the supply chain (wherever you can't get away with blaming Vodafone outright).

Having same thing here with iPhone 4 on vodafone, its a pain and only way to fix it is to restart the phone. Hope the update comes soon.....

I have this problem with my iPhone 4s when im in my car. Im with Telecom.  I didn't have it with my iPhone 4 with VF. I suspect that it is the dual antennae

Maybe we can start collecting some real info on the issue.

Noting anything off about the cell stats would be good. Put the iPhone into field test mode (dial *3001#12345#*) and lets see what we come up with.
