Default Avoiding 4G outage?

Is it possible to root the Rezound, and tweak it somehow so that 3G works during a 4G outage? I read somewhere on here that if "4G authentification" is down, a 4G phone WILL NOT BE ABLE TO connect to 3G either, even if you change it in the settings, and I confirmed this during that outage a couple days ago.

Is is possible to root and somehow change something to fool the network into thinking it's a 3G phone so you can ride the outage on 3G until it's over?

I know this seems silly and not necessary, but I figured it's worth asking.

I'm at work now but when I get home I'll post a way. It will let you at least get 3g when there's an outage. Only drawback is it will be extremely slow switching from 3g to 4g. Give me a few hours and I'll write it up

I have heard this before but havent tried it with my phone yet as I dont get as many outages or notice since I dont use the phone as much as i used too. Is it reversible and how big of an impact does it make? also does it affect the warranty at all?

Is this something everyone should do to improve 3g/4g handoff? I live in a 3g area, but travel to a big 4g area then back, would this help?

This makes the switch between 3g and 4g slower than normal. I only do it when there is a an outage. To reverse you just change it back. You'll see what I mean. When you dial it brings up a menu that you use to make the changes
