My intertubes just stopped without warning

Why does the data connection periodically die (dailyish?) on my Droid Incredible?
posted by The Winsome Parker Lewis to technology (7 answers total)
Nearly every day for the past couple weeks, the "3G" icon has disappeared from my status/notification bar. I still have a solid signal and can make calls and send or receive texts. I just can't connect to the internet in any apps (they don't even try; "no connection" errors appear immediately). WiFi still works, just not the cell network data. I restart the phone, and it works fine again as soon as it's rebooted.
This hasn't happened while using the data connection, in other words, I haven't observed it die during use. But I'll wake the phone up after work, for example, to listen to Pandora on the ride home, and discover then that it's not working. I'm not sure at what point it stops. It's probably due to some app I installed, but I've put a bunch of stuff on there lately and can't itemize the changes. Any guesses as to what's going on would be wonderful.
