Default Data connection refused

Please Login to Remove!

I have had 2 users that have had this issue so far, just wanted to get some advice on this. I get a call one day and one user said that he got Data connection refused on his BB. So I shut it down and restarted it. That got it to work. Another user told me the same thing happened and he did a restart and that fixed it.

Is this just a minor network hiccup where it just temporarily loses connection or could there be a more serious underlining issue here.

I had the same thing happen to me on Monday. Took two hard resets before it went away. You may also want to try a search for 'Data Connection Refused' or 'DCR' as well. I know there have been a number of long topics about this that were device/carrier specific.

I just upgraded to the 4.1.0.286 for the 7130 and so far my DCR is gone.
