Default No 4G

A friend's Bionic will no longer switch from 3G to 4G. On the intial upgrade to ICS no issues, still works fine on CDMA auto.

Thanks for any help

Well his Radios need to be on CDMA/LTE to receive 4G, since 4G runs on different bands than 3G, which is CDMA.

When I switch to the LTE radios, I do not receive a signal. When I check signal strength, it only shows 1G. My phone has good 4G service at the same location.

the past 2-3 days my wife and I barely have 4G. Home and work I always have 4G but now I only have 3G. I think it might also be a verizon thing.
I still show LTE/CDMA
Its pissing me off. I want my 4G
I have a Bionic and my wife has a Droid 4
zip code 08078 and 08054
