Default Stuck in 1X

Anyone ever have their phone get stuck in 1X? Initially I thought that it must be another network issue on Verizon's end. However, after going into the Power settings, switching to High Performance (4G), getting a 4G signal, then cycling back to Normal, I was able to get 3G back. I know...some are going to question why I don't just leave it in High Performance all of the time. I like battery life, and don't need the extra 1/100th of a second quicker download of a web page all of the time.

You know, before verizon had all this BS going on with the network, my rezound worked flawlessly. Now, I sometimes see 1X (in areas I never did before). Sometimes the handoff between WiFi, 3G and 4G takes a bit longer. Sometimes I go from 4G to 1X. And sometimes I do get stuck in 1X mode (which sucks). Reboot is the way to get the Rezound back on track.

I just recently received my rezound and after like a week of having it i thought my unit was malfunctioning or something. It was always stuck in 1x and i couldn't understand why. it must be some bug somewhere in the radios or something. normal mode just automatically goes to 1x and performance mode occasionally has this issue as well. hopefully there will be a software fix or something. This phone is amazing other than that occasional issue

I had the same problem last week after having it for 1 week. 1x the whole day. Took it to Verizon early evening that day. The rep took out the battery and then the sim card. And everything was all good.
His explanation "travel between 2 3G/4G coverage areas and if there is a gap, it will fall into 1x and may not get back up after entering the other 3G/4G area."
"rebooting only will not work, the sim card must be pulled also"
and he added "this should happen very rarely"
hope this would help

For those stuck in 1x, try this before going to the store. It fixed a problem I had with CDMA only.

- go to modem settings

- Rev. A

- select "enable"

Nah.. once the link is posted here, it's good to provide the actual info right away. I didn't want to edit your post, that's why I posted the list as soon as I saw the link so they'd be instantly recognizable.

Default What does changing from eHRDP to CDMA Rev A affect?

Stuck in 1X mode here in Bucks County, PA as well. Glad I found this thread.

Are there any drawbacks to setting it back to CDMA Rev. A? E.g. speed changes or will it toggle more slowly between 3G and LTE or vice versa?

In other words, is this something we should leave set to CDMA Rev. A or only long enough for LTE issues to subside?

What I find really wonky is I'm in an area with NO 4G, yet this still affected me. Why is it I'm in an area with no 4G signal and this caused eHRPD to tank?

Just wondering if I should leave it at this or set it back to eHRPD once the LTE issue goes away?

Crap. It just dropped to 1X again, even though I set it to CDMA RevA. My wife's iPhone is still happily holding 3G. Sigh.

*edit* Actually, it did pop back to 3G, then the 3G symbol went away and now it's showing 2 bars with neither a 1X or 3G. WTH is going on? Guess I'll call Verizon.

I've had this problem too. I also had it with my Moto Droid X in the same area of the city I live in. My solution.....have the airplane toggle widget at hand. When you see a persistant 1x, hit airplane mode. Wait about ten seconds and then toggle it off. It should regain 3G. Always works for me. BTW, I'm on CDMA most of the time now so I don't know how it works if you've checked LTE/CDMA. If you're getting 1x frequently then it may be a bigger problem.

Verizon has of late become a bit of a sick puppy. Methinks the jump to 4G/LTE has caused something besides air to go down its wind pipe.

I had already tried toggling airport mode and rebooting prior to posting. :/

I just set it back to eHRPD since it was still flipping to 1X off and on. 3G has been ok since, so it was probably just more hiccups from America's "most reliable" network.

None of those things work. Going into the ##778# menu, edit, modem, change to rev.a will not prevent the phone from going to 1x. The reason is our 4G devices use a different 3G than 3G only devices.

It's verizons network issues that cause this. I read something a week or so ago about it. In a nutshell, sometimes when the 4G network has issues, it may also kill 3G. But not the 3G we used to use before. That remains separate from us, because our devices are 4G LTE. When you hit 1x, you have no data, voice only. No 4G, no 3G.

Your best bet (if you do not have 4G in your area) is to leave the device set to cdma, under settings. If you have 4G, just leave it set to LTE/cdma.

There's nothing else you can do until verizon figures out how to acknowledge the device on the network better and when a problem occurs, keep it contained to as small an area as possible.

Geez, this is garbage. I have been stuck on 1X or NO data all day here and I don't even have 4G in this area. I spent 20 minutes on the phone with a "tier 2" person who didn't do squat for me. Had me toggle data on/off (he didn't even know how, he had to look it up and by the time he got back, it had flipped back over to 3G). I'm supposed to be keeping an eye on it and he's supposed to call me back in 2 hours (~7:45 EST). It has been on 3G maybe 15 minutes of the last 1.5 hours.

Now I know what all the people in the Nexus forum were bitching about. What a joke VZW. They are going to need to footnote their "America's Most Reliable Network" with an asterisk that says "except on 4G phones".

sorry didn't read all of the above. but got my phone the same day there was a 4G outage. had no idea what was going on. i called verizon and they did a reboot on my phone and it has been fine ever since. i was really just mad b/c it wasn't defaulting to 3G like it should- but the reboot solved that issue was well.

Rebooting, airplane mode on/off, and the rep "re-registering" my line/phone did nothing. I'm still dropping to 1X and it's been like this all day. They assured me there are "no outages" in this area. Just one in Butler, PA which is like 6+ hours away.

Well... I guess I'm also relieved to see my phone isn't the only one going wonky lately in 1X where it never did before. Still getting weird behavior where I get moderately good download speeds but the uploads are hiccupy. Sigh.

Ever since the first outage i have been seeing 1x as well in places i didn't before. Usually turning off mobile network will fix it if not that then a reboot. BUT i never had any issues at all until the first major outage. It has definitely been wonky since then. I live near charlotte NC

craziness today. i swear i'm about to throw my arms up in the air b/c nothing seems to work right. i probably would return my phone had i not dropped it in water. now i guess i'm stuck with rezound whether it works or not (love it when it works).

so i hard reset again, didn't work. reset the phone to factory default, while on the phone with vreizon while i am at work for at least 20 mins. following that no 3G or 4G still and couldn't even make a call out on it. phone was hot as crap (probably from rebooting it 7X b/c of verizon employees. got off the phone with her having no working phone to even make calls (other than work phone). pissed off and complained to verizon employee. let phone cool down. put back in SIM, SD and battery- rebooted...and now the 4G and phone are working again. WTF!?!?!?! i realize (and still am) glad my phone is working since it did fall in a glass of water...but WTF they have no answer to why 4G keeps dropping off and we aren't defualting to 3G. she kept being like you do'nt have a Wi-fi signal where you are? I'm all heated with her like NO, I'm in the middle of a freaking huge city, I SHOULD have 4G and if not that 3G.

anyways please continue to post updates as it seems my internet keeps falling off.

My phone went to 1x this morning. I had it in CDMA mode. So I switched to 4G, got the signal back and now things are running running fast with a tight connection. I got the fat battery so what, me worry?

1x has nothing to do with signal strength, right? I'm sure as h*ll not a signal expert. My signal strength was good....does that just have to do with the voice/call signal side?

Stuck in 1x again. I put the phone in LTE/CDMA mode, as soon as I was in 4G area, the phone switched to 4G. I drove into a 3G area and phone went to 3G. Drove back into a 4G area, the phone went to 4G. Left to go home and the phone went from 4G to 1x.

Here I sit at home stuck in 1x. I don't have 4G where I live, just very good 3G. I haven't rebooted yet, because I am contemplating returning this and going back to a regular 3G phone.

I've had issues dropping everything (won't even default to 3G) twice, but nothing since my last post on Thurs.

If the you try the airplane and CDMA modes and that doesn't work then I'd try Verizons reboot (instead of hard reboot which will erase all settings) first, then hard reboot. but as indicated in my last post it took awhile after my hard reboot for my coverage to work again (~30 mins). otherwise you could try popping the SIM card in and out- not sure if that will work. I'm in the middle of Raleigh and doing pretty good the past few days. I haven't ventured far, should be interesting when I go to bumf*ck Virginia next week....it better default to 3G or I'm not going to be a happy camper. I guess nav works in this phone either way? I'm switchign from the Droid which i think you had to have 3G for nav. i'll stop at the state line for a hard copy map just in case

I used the GPS on the Rezound the other day. It's fantastic. Locks on fast. Directions were flawless. Love the voice too. I'm not sure standalone GPS services uses the data connection.

Yessssssss, that's one of my favorite features of the Rezound! GPS is easily the best I've seen on a phone. Much more adroit than my OG Droid or Droid Charge. Using the GPS Test app, within 5-10sec it's already locked onto 8-10 satellites. Even works reasonably well indoors. Yowza!

Wow...my thread has lasted a few days! After reading that others are definitely having issues as well, I am wondering a few things: Is this a problem that is specific to the Rezound, or is it something that affects most 4G LTE phones? Is it simply a Verizon network issue? I really love my Rezound, and the fact that I still love it after have a bout with a boot loop last week and a 1X issue the week before, that is saying a lot! However, I am lucky to have a 90 day return window with Costco that I still have about 60 days to play with. Obviously, the phone is skating on thin ice when it comes to issues. After dropping the money on an extended battery, case, and screen protector, it would be a shame to have to dump the RZ! Well...two days since the boot looping and subsequent factory reset, and no issues!

However, I am lucky to have a 90 day return window with Costco that I still have about 60 days to play with. Obviously, the phone is skating on thin ice when it comes to issues.

Can't answer if it's a rezound problem or not. What I do know is my Rezound worked perfectly the first few weeks before the verizon outage. I didn't have issues going from 3G->4G and back. Now it seems to have issues going from 4G to 3G. But for me it's always in the same area. Other places I don't seem to have the problem. I guess I will have to call verizon and see what's going on with this area with 4G.

Arghhh! Everything has been singing along for the past week since my factory reset, etc. Now this morning the thing is bouncing between 1X, 3G, no data randomly just sitting here at my desk! I really can't believe the problems I have had to deal with since having this phone. If this is a Verizon problem, shame on them. If this is an HTC problem, they are getting what they deserve when they see 50% of their RZ's getting returned. I am going to shut this thing down and switch back to my Inc. The Razr Maxx is going to be my next choice. It'll be nice to have a 4G phone that I don't have to "power manage" constantly. It's really a shame, because I am a Sense guy and really loved most things about this phone. I just can't do business with an unreliable phone. Lame.

Wow... spent quite a while on the phone with a tier 2 tech at Verizon. After trouble shooting everything they have in their playbook, we ended up doing a factory reset. Didn't fix the network connectivity issue I was having. At that point, the tech said that either had to be my phone or a local network issue. After a couple of hours the phone is now pulling 3G with no problems. Guess it was the network...

Where you are having the 1x issues pull the sim card for 10 min instead of the recomended 2 min and then reinstall. Make sure to wipe off the contact side of the card. The cards can go bad from the heat as the sd cards can also. I have replaced alot of sim cards over this last year and atleast half of them were bad.Just ask them and they will send you a new one. I don't think putting it under the battery is a good place for it.

Well, I didn't have to pull anything.

I'm telling you guys, it's all on verizon. It's their crappy authentication process. Someone must have fed the squirrels, because I haven't had the 1x problem since I posted about it on the 7th.

Im in and out of 4g all day long and 3g when I get home. Have'nt noticed a hickup since I bought mine Nov. 14th. We have three rezounds and all but 1 have been great. Did the same thing as most are posting about for a few days and replaced card and its been great since late Nov. You may be right about the authentication process issues in different areas. Question is the authentication process tends to be an issue if you are moving from one coverage to another. How many are having it switch while in one spot.
I think there are several answers to these data issues so who knows.

By golly we pay VZW enough those squirrels shouldn't be going hungry. lol

Mine happened when moving about. From a 4G area to 3G. Oops, skip the 3G, lets just get turtle speed, 1x.

Damn squirrels are hungry this time of year.......must be chewing on something over at Verizon.

Well....after all of the time dealing with this issue today, and the many other idiosyncrasies of this phone, I have decided to abandon the rezound. I am now using the old reliable Incredible (amoled) and waiting for the Razr Maxx in two weeks. That battery and the ability to run at full bore 4g for a full day is just what the doctor ordered. And...now that I'm looking at my Amoled again, I really do prefer it to the higher res slcd on the rz. Just sucks that I have to leave Sense. Oh well.

Razr and Gnex are doing this as well. Happened to my Razr a few times in the past few days and not happened before. My guess is random, regional network shenanigans by VZW and their ongoing quest of 4G transition.

This would explain most 3G/4G devices having some form of issue and some not having it at all, while others have it randomly.

Yeah, I thought someone was going to say that. I've backed off of making judgments about phone radio capabilities, because the network flakiness has introduced so much unpredictability.

My Rez hung for the first time in a month tonight. Does it have a problem, or do I just blame it on VZW?

None of this makes any sense to me from a business perspective. I had no data coverage for a 20 mile drive across San Diego county yesterday afternoon. If it were a network problem, how is it that Verizon wasn't getting absolutely flooded with technical calls from nearly every 4G customer in SD? And if so, why would the tech keep me on the phone for 30 minutes trying to fix my phone?? If my power company or water utility is going to be shutting off service periodically in a day for maintenance, they will make it known to their customers. They wouldn't send technicians out to my house to monkey with things. Anyway, what a nightmare this whole switch to 4G has been. And for what?? A slightly noticeable speed increase when loading web pages?! The only really noticeable difference I saw with 4G was downloading apps, and that probably had as much to do with 4G as it did with the 1.5 ghz dual core on board the phone. And the most glaring issue I have with 4G is the battery drain! I had to buy a giant extended battery just to make the phone last 13 hours, and that was while doing every power saving trick I could find (Normal mode, NO 4G too). The way I see it, the Razr Maxx is the only phone out there that will address at least one of the major drawbacks to 4G...battery drain. That 3300 mAh battery will finally put to rest all of the ridiculous power saving measures that I see a lot of Rezound and GN users beating themselves over the head with.

I drove to the area where I had the "stuck in 1x" issue, for the second time. The area where I end up has 4G. The area I come from does not. The problem I had before was not going into a 4G area, the phone switched fine. It came when I left this particular 4G area. The phone would go from 4G to 1x.

Now, both times the phone went from 4G-> 1x and a few seconds later, 3G. I am also seeing better 3G speeds. I can't say for sure what they did to change all this stuff.

But if it were the phone or the sim card, wouldn't the problem exist all the time?

I'm having the issue and thought it may be a network problem but my wifes rezound has 4g. i rebooted it connected fine but i don't want to have to keep doing that. I'll try pilling the sim and if that doesn't work I'm going to the vz store that has tech support and demanding a replacement. Unless it has something to do with the fact that I've used 2gb of data this month and still have 15 days I'm my Billing cycle... Although i still have unlimited data plan.

Ziplip poor signal

Ok, I am no nerd but here are my thoughts on this signal issue. It is not your phone. The rezound is a very very good phone, absolutely one of the best out now. I have been with verizon for over 20 yrs, I am having the same issues as the rest of you. I have gone through many growing pains with the cell industry. It is within their network. It will get worked out. Don't return your phone for a phone that really is not going to be as good as the rezound. The competitiveness in this high tech world we are evolving into is so great that these companies do not want to loose their competitive edge. The manufacturers of the devices that utilize this new 4g have to do what they do in order for the networks to troubleshoot their systems so they can bring us the service we want. It doesn't always seem as they care, but they do, or they would fail. The fall out of all of this is that they put out advertising and the such to entice us to use their product or service before it is really ready. It is going on in the tablet industry as well. (hence the transformer prime issues)Trust that this will all get worked out and things will be great and you will enjoy your great piece of equipment. Now you can try all this changing of things if you wish but chances are until the network gets its bugs worked out (and it won't be overnite) they are probably not necessary. It will get better and you will be glad that you are with a network that has been and will be the leader in this industry. I am not a happy camper either, as I just cancelled my internet service at my home to use my MHS and can hardly get a 4g signal. I can walk literally 25 feet from my house and get a great signal. Just remember all the issues the iphone had with ATT. It is not the phone. Patience has its virtues. And no I don't work for verizon. lol

I can get a good 4G signal two blocks in any direction from my house, but barely at all inside or outside right here.
