Default 3G/GPRS issue

Please Login to Remove!

Ok Folks,
Got my Bold last week, used it on the base software (don't know the version) for a few days all went well.
Wacked on OS 5.0, again, all went well but missed MSN and Facebook so revered back to now my problem is that it just wont stick with 3G but keeps flipping to GPRS and sometimes even 3g. (even when i know the area I'm in is high converage for 3G).
The signal goes from ery high on 3G, to very low, then to GPRS, and a few mins later it might flip back to 3G again?!
I can force it to stick to 3G, but when I stumble into an area that has no 3G coverage I'll be left with no signal.

This a common issue?

Should I change OS to another version??

Might do a full wipe and reload the os tonight.

Its the same with me on t-mobile uk
I know I have 3G coverage in my house that is high.
But when on a call, it usually flips to GPRS.

Or, when I move from one location to another in the house, it might flip down to GPRS but come back.

Its just the way it happens.
