Greetings. My friend got a droid bionic with a bad esn and ask me to flash it to cricket for him. I've flashed several different types of phones to cricket and have been successful at getting talk, txt, mms and 3G data working on all of them... until now. Talk and text work fine but the data won't work.
I've tried multiple prls but that doesn't seem to be the issue. One thing that has me concerned is that whenever I tap the "Network type and strength" option under about phone instead of showing both 1x and 3G information it ONLY shows 1x. Is it possible that the 3G radio chip on this device is dead?
I've tried switching between cdma only, lte/cdma, and global network modes. I've made sure data is enabled and data while roaming is enabled. The 3G icon NEVER appears at all!
I'm afraid I'm going to have to give my friend the bad news that he has a faulty Bionic.
Is there any way to test the radio chips with an app or something?
