not sure as to all reasons

but sometimes if your sevice provider sends you a SMS text message then modem may be dropping to textmode therefore dropping the 3g connection,

next time it happens

check if any messages have come through at the same, best prog is wammu its in the repos

after using wammu you may have to disconnect the modem and then reconnect
also depending on the method of connection you may find the modem manager hanging on to the modem , here again disconnect and reconnect the modem

also if you are using these services , and the progs are laying idle , then your ISP may be closing the connection

check your log files , there may a clue in there, some times it may say " disconnected by peer "

Just noticed your post above so will look into the meaning of the message

Looking up the reasons for the Error message
