    I recently flashed my indulge with basix and electric sheep. it was working great for over a week. couple days ago I got a text from metro that i had reached my alotment of 4g data for the month the day after my speed was set to 4g. i decided to edit my plan for unlimited data so i could get my 4g back and keep on going. after it was updated I still had 3g and went through every step metro tried till they told me they had to put in a support ticket and would be 2-5 days to get back to me. i have tried everything in these forums and nothing is resolving it. Also since that I have to turn airplane mode on to get the data 3g to come on. yes the lte says unknown lol. i have odined it back to stock today and still nothing :( sad thing is i bought it off craigslist about 8 months ago, so im sure them replacing it is out of the question. i have been wanting to get the lg motion,but cant do it for a couple weeks or more. any help would be great and thanks ahead of time.

    My LTE went unknown just over a week ago and I also tried everything and I ended-up calling Metro Guard and got the phone replaced with the Connect because nothing worked. The funny thing is, before I sent the Indulge back after I already got the Connect I went into stock recovery and did a factory reset then after that I did a factory reset again in recovery and what do you know, the damn LTE came back LMAO!!! But I already had the Connect so I sent the indulge back anyways. Im not saying that it will work for you but why not give it a try. After you use Odin go into recovery and factory reset it a couple times and see what happens, who knows you might get lucky. If not, have you tried to update the radios to EG06 and EF23 if they are not already? if they are then how about going to 2.2.2 to try to save your phone?

    This might help others that have been having trouble with their indulge service.

    Thanks to everyone for the time and knowledge. :) I actually found a link earlier and odined it and everything works well as of now. It brings me 2.2.2, but I would like to install a good loaded custom rom or at least basix and electric sheep. Will that reset my radios and lose the 4g connection again? (it will bring me back to 2.2.1 I believe)

    For others with the Unknown lte in baseband, this is what worked for me.

    [OFC I entered download mode first]

    1) downloaded odin-pit.zip (odin-pit.zip included)
    2) downloaded SCH-R910-EG06-samfirmware.tar
    3) opened Odin and loaded the acs-indulge.pit in the pit slot and SCH-R910-EG06-samfirmware.tar in the pda slot. The only box I have ticked in odin is auto-reboot.
    4) Click start and wait through whole process till I got a "PASS"
    5) unplugged phone and began to browse.

    *NOTE* Root or CWM not needed and My radios needed updating. Not sure if this will help if you have the radios already up to date.

    *NOTE v2* I had lowered my plan with metro when my data broke to 40$ a month, so I wouldnt get charged for a crap connection. I just upgraded to the promo 55$ unlimited a month plan. I heard it was just as good as the 70$ a month plan, so jump on that promo while you have the time for that option. ;)

    I actually had a very tough time choosing between the Esteem and the Connect but I went with the Connect because of the screen size, yes I typed that right lmao!! The Connect fit better in my work uniform's pocket and even though its smaller its a pretty bad ass little phone. I gotta be honest tho, I miss the hell out of the indulge's physical keyboard : '(

    When you say that the Indulge's UICC cards are not supported, does that mean they are gonna lose 4G completely? Im just wondering because I still have the Indulge. I plan to get a new phone, but I just had my 3rd son & now I will have to wait to get a new phone. Im in Holiday, FL & ive been having a hard time getting 4G at my house. now as soon as I get out to the hwy th 4G works fine. it use to work fine at my house. I just updated to the 3031 prl so ill see if theres a difference.

    Well not sure if u knew this but the newer uicc are cat 3 phones that have them are the Samsung attain the lg connect the lg motion and pretty much the newer models they allow you to talk on the phone and surf the Web. us that have the lg.esteem also have the old uicc cards but.the difference here is that we have had 4 firmware updates tell me hoeing times have ya gotten updates? So in conclusion lack of updates lack of interest from.metro and Samsung plus the fact that the indulge dosnt exist for metro anymore equals that this product is obsolete. The best thing to do is if u have metro guard is to get it replaced and they will give u the Samsung attain with the new cat 3 uicc trust me you'll love it

    ^^^Agreed^^^ Metro Guard will let you pick from the Attain or Connect. I just went through it, except I was also willing to buy the Esteem so I had 3 phones to pick from (smh) I went with the Connect just because it fit my needs (pocket) better LOL!! and I only paid $99 total and that including sending my old phone back.
