hi Tony are you able to fix this.. as I am also facing the same problem :( – iPhoneDev Sep 7 '12 at 5:10

Check to see if you have Battery Defender or some such app installed. You may have set data network to time out every 5 mins there (default is 15 mins).

Not sure if it will deactivate it but if you have set a data limit and then gone over it then the phone may be disabling the data connection to prevent you being charged extra.
