    Hey guys, I use the Phone info app to toggle 4G off while I'm at work since the reception is poor and it drains my battery.

    Toggling between CDMA Auto for 3G and LTE/CDMA/EvDo for 4G had been working great for months with ICS. Since the Jelly bean update, I switched to 3G once and have been unable to switch back.

    Anyone know how to fix this? I already tried uninstalling and reinstalling the Phone Info app.

    edit: I'm on verizon, btw

    I was just having same problem today... Here's what fixed it:

    Appears you must manually go into your phone settings:

    Settings->More Settings->Mobile Networks->Network mode

    Select 'Global' and 4g should immediately be active.

    It appears we can still use phone info to turn 4g off, but must use this method to turn 4g back on.... there is an app called 4g Toggle which all it does is immediately take you to the built in 'Mobile Networks' setting screen.

    Hope this helps.
