Any way to force LTE over 3G? -Starting to hate Samsung
Ugh... this was I was NOT hoping for.
So I started on the HTC Thunderbolt and it had a consistently stable LTE signal at my residence.
The phone died on me and I couldn't get a replacement so I just decided to upgrade to the Galaxy Nexus. The signal or whatever you call it was crappy--I couldn't hold an LTE signal for the life of me. I returned the phone and adopted the Rezound instead. Was pretty happy with it, especially its signal/reception---no issues at all.
So now, because I absolutely LOVE and MUST have the Note 2 lol, I went ahead and purchased a GN2 @ retail so I can keep my unlimited data.
The bad signal problem is back and I can't hold an LTE signal for the life of me at my residence.
I'm holding out hope that someone knows if there is anything I can do to either force LTE to work, turn off 3G completely, or so some sort of "reset" that I can perform on the phone that may improve it's signal/reception.
Disclaimer: I don't know much at all about signal/reception--I am only reporting the fact that my HTC VZW phones held an LTE signal at my residence and that Samsung's options seem to be terribad.
Please help if you can!!
BTW, I have a 4g LTE Jetpack with Verizon and it is getting a strong LTE signal. Also, not that it probably matters since I am assuming they are on a difference frequency or whatever, I have someone else's AT&T Galaxy Note with LTE and their phone is getting a strong LTE signal.
