    Rezound (and Tbolt) owners... no data today? Do this and you should get 3G back...

    So this is a repeat of what Bolt owners went through, and a big +1 to HTC phones for having the ability to do this.

    Dial ##778#, call
    edit mode
    password is 000000
    modem settings
    Rev. A
    select "enable"
    menu > commit
    phone will reboot and you should get 3G back

    This changes your network from eHRPD back to EVDO Rev.A. For LTE phone owners, eHRPD causes 3G to die (most of the time anyway) when the LTE network has problems. Get back on normal EVDO and you're good to go.

    Once the network is back up, you'll want to repeat the steps to turn eHRPD back on, as the 4G/3G handoff is VERY slow on EVDO.

    Maybe, only if you also enable "CDMA Only" in the main settings, so it doesn't look for 4G. *maybe*...

    whoa whoa whoa... wait a minute here! JNT you've got my gears turning on something that I'm gonna try tonight or later today! I'm keeping my mouth shut until I found out if it works or not thought . Very cool tip and thanks for posting it. My 4G is back here in TN as of about 9EST, only went out at 2PM yesterday.. that's less outage then I experience with my bionic most of the time, and I've gotta say, I missed it pretty bad being gone after having no drops for over a week LOL.

    would you say, overall, your Rezound's head and shoulders better than your Bionic was when it comes to the data connection and reliability? or have you experienced any similarities with regard to data drops? Just curious...

    It's not even in the same league! I have had only the one data dropout issue with the rezound and it was Verizon's network (nationwide outage)! I can actually leave my rezound on CDMA/LTE at my home in a 4G fringe zone and keep a connection even with the occasional swap to 4G . Even locked into CDMA only my bionic had issues *shrug*

    Also, I don't know if it makes a difference, but my RZ is a refurb. Only issue I have is pinkish soft buttons. I can live with that lol.

    I like that feeler question jntdroid. lol. Coming from a Bionic, I don't miss it. Even when rooted had some data issues. Only thing I KINDA miss is the feel of the bionic. Just because it's different. And I use cases most of the time. So without a case for me I choose Rezound over bionic. With a case, Bionic over rezound. The case takes away from the Rezound sexiness. So I was rockin' my rezound naked.

    well I said I would mention back if my idea worked. It didn't. My thought process was with the hotspot hack. Swapped back to EVDO 3g mode added the proper (for a 3G phone) inputs for making the hotspot work, but the final verification even on EVDO somehow runs through the SIM and it would not function. It did come close as it took it a lot longer to give me the no-go screen though lol. Maybe one of these days it'll get cracked another route.


    Also, I want to elaborate a bit on my data experience on the RZ. I have seen my 3g/4GLTE Icons disappear for a split second, I have never experienced a loss in connection, only seen it occur. So I tend to attribute that to being my radio attempting to swap from 3G to 4G at home in the fringe zone. Again, be it software or hardware, the RZ handles the network data connection much better than what the bionic does. And at this point I'm very happy I stuck with my guns and made verizon give me this swap, because the OTA announced as 5.5.893 is severely disappointing if the leaks coincide directly with the official updates.
