I'm on Rogers. I have an issue where my Z10 will be connected to both the mobile network and wifi, and I will lose my data connection. The little BlackBerry logo in the status bar will disappear, and I can not use anything that requires data (email, BBM, browser, etc.) I can still make phone calls.
When I go into network settings, I see I am connected to Rogers with "4g" rather than "4G" which is what it says when I have data connection.
This happens regardless of if I am connected to wifi or not - I can not access data even on wifi. Also, it has happened when I am not connected to wifi at all.
Rebooting the phone restores the data connection.
Any help would be greatly appreciated, as it's incredibly annoying to have to reboot my phone several times a day just to get my data connection working.

When the 'G' drops to 'g', this indicates that either the device cannot connect to the data network, or the data network is no longer available.
I would recommend contacting Rogers for assistance with this issue.

Hi Captain Sweatpants,
I am also having the same issue with data connection dropping and have already been to see the carrier (Etisalat) who have stated that there are no service outages or connection issues in the area that I live in. I have just upgraded from BB 9800 BB6 to a BB Z10. In the past whenever the cellular signal was weak or dropped from 3G to a lower connection speed (3g, GPRS, GSM) and I was connected to WiFi, the data (BB Sign/Dots) would still be active. With the Z10, I have the following issues
The way that I have tried to resolve it is as follows
From what I have experienced, the problem seems to occur whenever the signal strength drops from H/G/E to h/g/e or lower but if I am in a WiFi area and connected, it should be able to transfer data through this connection
I would really like some support on this as I have been on many forums to understand whether there are other individuals also experiecing the same issue, which does appear to be the case.
Look forward to your response

Same issue here - data drops out randomly and stays off with the Z10
I have to go into Settings/Network Connections/Mobile Network and slide the "Data Services" to off and then back to on in order to restore data connection.
I have a Rogers account.
What a pain.

I have the exact same problem and my carrier is Etisalat as well.
However, I do not get my data service until I dont restart my phone.
I have been noticing when this happens and have realized that whenever i go through an elevator where I lose connection. After that, I am not able to get the data service back on until I restart my phone.
Blackberry, we are ready to support you as customers, but please dont make us go through this!!!
Its kind of like, I am now forcing myself to like blackberry (i dont even know why)

I have the exact same problem, everytime I go into an elevator or some place with weak coverage I lose the data connection and it remains lost even when I am back to adequate coverage. The only way to get the data connection back up is to restart the device, turning off and then on the data connection does not help, only restarting the device fixes it. This is totally unpractical.. I wonder why such things never happen on my other line where I use an iphone. I love Blackberry but when are they going to start producing FINISHED products rather than trial and error with their loyal customers?

i am getting the exact same problems,
i approached it from another angle, my home has bad cell reception so i bought a wireless router, and i noticed when this happens my router is not "seeing" the bb connected to it, yet the phone says its connected and it has an IP and all that jazz so i start mucking about with those setting while turning my mobile service completely off, but then the wifi stack keeps reporting i have no saved network and won't disconnect from my router (in its mind)
i seriously think it has to do with the way the Wi-Fi is interacting with the radio and it would be very nice to get a BB (aka RIM) tech to weigh in on this
