    When 4g is not working it's doesn't automatically switch to 1x so I can't use data.

    dunno it if will work on Esteem, but try LTE On/Off -HTC Thunderbolt from the market.

    I believe that if you change the radio to use CDMA(autoprl) only it will turn off 4G.

    If you set it to CMDA + LTE/EvDo auto it will turn on 4G.

    It may or may not work, as I am using a Optimus M and it allows me to turn off 3G and only use the 1x.

    You can use a data toggle to turn data completely off but i cant find a way to turn to 1x if 4g is available.

    that does not sound like a smart idea. I recommend against that.

    Yes there is a known issues and LG is working on and FOTA update.

    4G when not connected is not switching over to 1x. and not receving any data.

    Lg is aware of this, hang tight, and update will be coming shortly.

    Is there any way to count the data usage in an LG phone? or maybe an app?
    Thanks.
