I don't know if it'll be the cause, but you can switch between what type of
networks it should connect to.
If I switch mine to GSM/WCDMA auto then I get 3G (HSPDA) in supported areas,
but often with a slightly weaker signal; if I set it to GSM-only, it gets a
stronger signal, but with slower data.
You can find it under Settings -> Wireless & networks -> Mobile networks ->
More fun, though, is to "dial" *#*#4636#*#* to get into the testing widget,
where you can get all sorts of info and set preferred network type, etc.
