Default Phone stuck in 1x?

Hi, I tried searching for how to fix this and I couldn't figure it out.. I recently got this phone and I was having the "radio interference" error nonstop, so I tried the ##CLEAR# and hitting reset function that a lot of people said helped them and I actually stopped getting the error since then.

However, since I've done this, my phone has been stuck in 1x. I have a great connection where I live, I've had virgin mobile for years. I can even turn on my 4g and get a great connection, but I don't understand how to get my 3G back? I've tried taking out the battery, switching back and forth between airplane mode and nothing.

All other threads I've seen where people complain of 1x get replies saying they have a bad connection in that area, but I'm POSITIVE that isn't the case (I have 4-5 bars constantly...) Any idea how to enable my 3G?

I would either try a factory reset or give virgin a call. Obviously you should always try calling from a different phone but just a heads up if you ever have to call from your cell dial 611 instead of the 800 number it won't use your minutes.

I had this same problem a month or so ago. I was able to correct it by updating my profile. Settings, System Updates, Update Profile.
