I have just noticed this. I saw your post on the list, when I clicked on it it was gone. Apple does not sleep :)

I have the same issue. It started after 3 days of using the new iPad without any problems, only then the low capacity turned off the iPad and after reloading the issue cames up. Now after a while in "standby" the 3G connection isn't possible. Could only solve this issue with rebooting, or flight mode or reset of the network settings. So in my opinion, it seems to be a software issue. As it works in the beginning for three days without problems why should it be a hardware defect.

Same issue here for several days now, I bought my 32gb iPad on launch day.
Symptoms exactly the same as everyone else, 3g works after reboot but stops working after I've been on wifi.
I am on giffgaff (payg network uses O2 masts etc) in the uk.
Am going to try restoring iPad and setting up from new to see if that will help.

Restoring has not helped me and I have not seen any posts suggesting restoring has fixed the issue. It may not be worth your time.
This problem is not limited to being on WiFi (as the title of the thread may suggest) - it happens if you have WiFi switched on, whether you join a network or not.
I switched off WiFi yesterday and I have not dropped off 3G yet. This morning it took an emotional minute or so for web pages to start loading, but once they started, data came into the iPad as normal. Please see for further discussion:

..likewise, restoring the iPad did not fix the issue for me.
I went to the Apple store today as the telephone support engineer said that at the moment they could do nothing more then swap out the iPad. So..... I now have a replacement iPad and will continue to use it. If the fault reoccurs in the next couple of days it'll further reinforce the fact that it is likely to be a software bug.
I will report back in a couple of days either way to let you all know.

Still getting issues, even with replacement hardware. I'll try to re-open my support case with Apple now to see if they can escalate...

Same problem here The New iPad 32G 4G in Czech Republic - T-Mobile network.
Tried restoring, reseting network settings, APN settings. Just soft reset works until I use wifi.

same problems at Germany (T-Mobile), iPad 3 4G 16GB

and again same problem in Germany, but with vodafone.
The problem is for sure the iPad 3, and I wonder if it can be solved.
But we all should be careful with complainings about apple products,support, and software.
All such posts will eb deleted in this forum. This happend at this link several times already:
I call this forum "The Bermuda Triangle"

It's all good discussing it in the forum, but please very one log a support case with Apple as it them shows in their stats. The more people who raise cases the ore they will know it's a widespread issue and not just forum gossip.
We all know it's a problem that should be fixed so ask Apple to fix it ivy logging it with them and on here.
