    I just recently got myself a Samsung S 3. I am very happy with it. The only complaint I have is the reception. I found out it's because it's trying to go 4G and sometimes it does not get good reception. I later found an article that Sprint working on their 3G and 4G networks so that probably explain another reason why I don't get good reception.

    So my question is, is there a way to force the phone to use only 3G? I also like the option to go back to 4G when I am in a good reception area.

    Thanks for any help! :)

    Settings -> Wireless and Networks -> More. . . -> Mobile Networks -> Network Mode.

    Should be able to turn off LTE there.

    good luck
