    hello all,

    i tried searching online and in the forum for this before posting. Anyways, I live right outside of the DC area and have full 4g coverage. Recently, when i turn 4g on it says that I have full 4g signal for about 30 seconds...then the 4g mode will shutoff then go back to normal 3g ...any ideas why this is happening anyone :thinking: i haven't rooted my phone or don't anything special besides install normal applications!

    Thanks

    Are you inside a building? I can have full signal and then move to an interior room and lose it all. 4G doesn't seem to do well with walls at all!

    Whats strange is that before i did the froyo update, my phone was randomly turning 4G on. I'm several hundred miles from any 4G market, too.
