Help Internet connection?


Jul 24, 2010
Im new to the forums so dont flame me if this is a repost :D

So I've had my droid X for about three weeks and everything has been good up till now. Lately my internet speed has decreased and ive had a little bit of loading issues. Whenever i go surf the browser, the marketplace, or anything that has to do with the internet, most of the time i get a service error has occured or an error has occured and in paranthesis it says socket not connected. So i refresh the page and it takes forever refreshing until it says couldnt connect. So i back out of what ever im using and then try again and sometimes it doesnt work till the third time. Can anyone tell me if this is something bad with the phone, or is it lack of connection?

Cliff notes*
open browser
cant connect and says socket not connected
refresh and still nothing
finally after two or three refreshes it opens or works.
