I consistently have problems browsing the web via my 3G connections despite the fact that it shows that I've got a "good" signal. Often I will have the blue bars but they eventually turn grey after the connection fails. If I keep hitting retry on Chrome it will eventually load the page.

Does anyone have any ideas on what is going on here? Is my carrier doing something strange?

(This is on a Galaxy Nexus running Jelly Bean, build number JWR66Y, baseband I9250XXLJ1)


Check the access points(Settings>More>Mobile Network>Access Points) that you have set. In most cases, people have trouble because of the APs they have chosen. Also, try using another SIM card of a different carrier in 3G mode. If all goes well we will know your own phone isn't at fault.
