Whether I'm on wifi or 3g, sometimes my apps would tell me i have no internet connection. But if i spam retry button a few times it works. All this time my phone is connected to the internet. Anyone knows why?

So far this has happened to market app, youtube app, and other app that require internet connection

Sometimes the green bar on browser would stuck and not go. I tried refresh same thing. I had to force close the browser and open again to fix. Anyone know why
Anyone? It seems to be getting worse and worse only lasting a day or so before a reset is needed

Check to see if other network-based apps have issues at the same time (Ie, Facebook app, other browsers, etc.). You can have a full-strength signal, but if you're in a congested area then data can still die out completely. AT&T here is notorious for this. There are two main streets here where if I'm on them, I will get no data even though I have H+ at full bars. When I was on Verizon, I'd at least get 100k-250k on these streets.

Yep my wife's S2 having exactly the same issue. It's not the ROM (same issue on stock and on Sensation ROM). It happens on both 3G/HSDPA and on wifi, but only in apps requiring internet access. The actual internet works fine throughout.

Network is Vodafone UK but it happens on Wifi too so don't think its network related.

Would be interested to know if there's any reason behind this, its a very strange issue.

Incidentally, I got my S2 on the same day from the same place, and have the same ROM onboard, and have never experienced the issue.
