Default How to get your 4g back. (without doing factory resets or phone trades)

As i looked into various threads i See many people struggling with their 4G recently. So i'm here to show you a way to get it back..;

OK. This will work as same thing has happend to me. Dont panic !There is a way for you to get your 4g back.

This method is to fix and reset 4g in general , so it should work;

First of all, download an app called "any cut" free from market. Then after it downloads and installs, go home screen and create a shortcut >then select > activities > and then select the "any cut" app. After that it'll send you to the app and from there you have to press on "activities" option and Scroll down until you see "LTE configuration" (its mostly the first one that starts with LTE). Then as you select that it will have created a shortcut action on the home screen. You then go to home screen and look for the shortcut you have created, it'll be called *lte configuration*. Open it and then press on setting initialization. Now, it will reset your lte settings and the phone will reboot. After that you should be able to be running 4g nice and clean...

Hope it helps ...

this needs to be stickied. this method was the only way to restore my mobile network. I had tried everything. metro told me I'd need to do a factory reset or trade my phone in.

I've read all over the internet. I've seen tons of people in the same situation.


Definitely a life saver right here.

That didnt work for me. I would click Activities and select any cut and then it would ask me if i wanted to edit shortcut. If I say yes, its a black screen of nothing and if i say no it takes me to the home page where is see the icon. If i click on it, the same thing happens with the "edit" stuff...

No no. As you are in the process of opening any cut. You then select "activities", remember you will have to wait a few seconds because its going to load up lots of activities. So the fact that the screen is black at first means that it's loading up to show all the activities you wish to configure... so be patient and wait until you see all the activities, then you follow up with the instructions.

Yeah. That relatively works , but not that effective. I have done it. But their problem is more complex. So this method allows you to brings back 4g by force regardless of any modification you have done to the mobile network..

It works! But like to add one thing. It locks up the phone at the LG screen and if it does that to you don't panic. Just pull out the battery. Leave it out for ten seconds. put it back in the phone might go to the metropcs sceen and stay there for a while after you boot but be patient. Once the phone is booted YOUR 4G WILL BE RESTORED! THANKS AGAIN!

I didn't have 4G for two days, and I was considering a Factory Reset, and going to the Metropcs store. My girlfriend was getting 3G on her crappy Metro phone, but I couldn't get it on my Esteem. I followed the steps he said above, and It quite literally fixed my problems instantly.
I want to thank you for posting this up. It was driving me nuts not to have internet on the go, since I'm always on the go.

Now, are you using any app that might be preventing/blocking 4g connection.? Or any settings that deals with your network connection..

Ok. Now that is quite weird. You SHOULD be able get 4g. Make sure you have data enabled and keep the connection home (Metro PC's only). Also make you still have service or call metropcs to reset the signal. Also try updating the prl, if you have the latest don't worry, redo it again...

Let me know.

Why do you mean? Your esteem should be constant 4g. Are you talking about another phone.

first of all you need to install CWR which gives you the option to perform backups/Recovery, lets you flash roms, mods, kernel, and many things. this is a very essential recovery for your phone. so follow the instruction and flash it to your phone. Please follow the instruction through-fully;

http://androidforums.com/esteem-all-things-root/470485-cwm-root-rzr-root-recovery-aio.html

after that, you can do whatever you want with your phone. but since you want to flash Kernels to overclock the phone, take a look at this.;

[KERNEL] Plague Overclock Kernel for LG Esteem MS910 - UPDATED!

ALSO, if you wish to to install Roms and stuff, you just follow the same procedures by flashing them through cwr. You can find Upcomming and new ROMs for esteem at "all things root" forum.(they are most likely sticked)

You mean? As you flashed the ROM you suddenly lost 4G?

I see. Well then dial *228 and select option 5 which is to update to the latest preferred roaming list. You could also go ahead and activate it or go to metropcs store.

Ask them is I'd they are doing some maintenance !

Yeah, try that first (airplane mode toggle on and off) -- then this other method if the airplane mode doesn't work. For me, airplane mode toggle straightens out problems when I get the "gray bars" 4G.

Well you could update it with the LG software that you install on your PC. First make sure you have the drivers installed and then install the lg mobile updater on your PC found at lg

Or here is the link
