Both Elite's I've had (they replaced it once) had the 1xrtt and evdo rev a constant toggle every minute or two, causing data service interruption all the time, and unnecessary battery drain. I called and spent 45 minute today talking/being on hold with Virgin and they just wanted to reset my phone (lose everything AGAIN) even though I told them they had me do that last time and it didn't help.
I filed an FCC complaint like someone else said to do. This is my reference number if anyone else chooses to do this and include a reference to someone else with the same issue. 12-C00430396
I also sent an inquiry to LG the other day, they accept messages:
Maybe we should carpet bomb them to see if they investigate?
Is there going to be a radio update for this phone? There are countless reports of problems with it being stable on 3G, when a non LG or other LG model phone in the same area doesn't have problems on the same cellular network.
Here are some reports from dozens of advanced users trying to understand the problems:
Post your 3G speeds here.
Constant Slow Mobile Data?
3G/4G Speed Optimizer Pro. Work?
The Elite has been a nightmare to most people in the 3G data functionality and I hope LG maybe can shed some light on the topic. The Sprint/Virgin carriers don't seem to have a handle on it and only replace the phone time after time and then eventually give people a different model and that fixes it.
