    I suspect that this is related to the network problems that they have had yesterday and somewhat continuing today. I lost 4G about 5-6 times today and it was out all morning yesterday. Every area seems to be affected differently. I doubt that it is your phone.

    Take it back, they will fix it right away. In less than a minute. Forget customer service over the phone. They have no clue.

    In my case I installed an app to save battery juice and it knocked down the 4g in sleep mode to save power. But it never came back.

    Get anycut from market. Go to new shortcut. Try to find metro PC's hidden menue. Make shortcut. Go to home screen Once there choose metro PC's hidden menue. Once there go to network select/network mode/hybrid. Choose automatic. The phone will reboot with 4g. Pm for help. Had same problem on LG esteem. That should fix it. Screen grabs soon to follow.

    Ronhouse,

    Apart from not getting 4G in a known 4G-covered area, does you signal level (bars) display fluctuate a lot ? Does it jump between zero and 3-4 bars for example ?

    This is what happened to my first Connect. The signal was consistently bad, although voice quality seemed OK and I wasn't dropping calls. I went to corporate store, once they "re-provisioned" the phone (claiming that initial activation was not fully successful), but the second time, after watching the signal levels, they quickly gave up and just replaced the phone. The replacement had 4G on already when they handed it to me 20 minutes later :).

    The same troubleshooting/replacement would take hours with Sprint. I'm so glad I ditched them...

    Maybe your 4G sim card is the problem, did you change it also?

    I don't think so, because this is a band new phone with with a band new 4g sim card.
    But thanks for trying to help

    It doesn't matter new or not...if the simcard is not good, you won't get 4G. I would check it, this is simple.

    thank you everyone for your help. It was the 4G sim car! I had to reprogram it back to my phone again and that solve my problem

    If everything on the phone is working perfectly but the 4g IT IS THE SIM CARD 100%. It is not necessarily defective just not matched to the phone.

    Go to A metro location and have them look up your account and match it up.

    Did it today after i wasn't getting 4g. 2 minutes later BAM 4g.

    Anyone having this problem --- ITS THE SIM CARD NOT MATCHED PROPERLY --
