    Hi, I know this question is on here a bunch, but I can't seem to find a resolution on the 3G 1X problem I have.

    I must be on the 50 yard line at home because I bounce continuously between a good 3G signal to a shi!!y 1X signal.

    I tried the *#...4636 bla bla and changed the setting to WCDMA only and it defaults back to CDMA auto PRL sometimes right away and sometimes not.

    Oh yeah and I tried changing it and pressing the home button instead of the back button only to wait a little while and find that it changes back.

    Can anyone help?

    I know I'm in the Droid X forum, but just in case someone asks, I am using one.

    Hello asgert, and welcome to the forums.

    We do see the "3G/1x dance" being reported around various device forums here. ;)

    One way to find out if your device has an issue, or if the poor/intermittent 3G signal has more to do with tower proximity, etc, is to have another device right with you which uses 3G, preferably of course another X. Friend's? Co-workers? etc.

    If you've been reading around about 3G issues in the X, then you've probably tried the various remedies, including a factory data reset?

    Thanks for the reply and the welcome!

    My builder has a droidx and his is hit and miss too.

    I did a factory data reset a couple weeks ago before I rooted. If I do another reset will it affect my superuser status?
