    3G Down for me since Yesterday

    For some odd reason, my 3G is down wherever I go around here, I can connect to 4G, but I am in fringe area with that so it disconnects within minutes. There is no fallback to 3G, and I've driven all around the area with the same issue. No 3G link. Just calls and text. At first I thought it was an area outage but there doesn't seem to be anything posted about it. I am in South FL. Only been occurring since yesterday. What gives?

    I have done nothing to the phone to cause this. I pulled battery, removed sim, etc.. Still the same issue. Not sure if I should call VZ or if someone else has experienced this they can chime in.

    **Update: It may have been the area. Just checked my phone and 3G is back!

    Very odd indeed.

    Unfortunately it might have been your phone. Many of us have exactly this issue while someone with a 3G only phone has no issues at the same location, at the same time.

    yeah it's VERY Annoying and i think we all need to give VZW crap for it.

    The phone is unstable. Samsung really screwed this one up.

    Ya its still probably not entirely the phones fault, as I said in another post, that when in a solid 4G area the phone works flawlessly, never hangs or drops. Same goes for a 3G only area.

    Um I am in a 3G area only and signal keeps dropping to nothing or 1x. When i was in 4g with previous of the same phones, it crashed constantly. It's the phone moreso.

    Ah interesting.. Its all very inconsistent between experiences then Maybe the hardware is that inconsistent, or wonder if VZ has other issues going on between locations.

    maybe this has been said, but i was wondering if people in a 3g only area have similar issues and if they have the phone set to cdma only.
    the phone ships set to lte auto, which theoretically should work either way. perhaps the phone is getting confused on weak signal by faulty software.
    they have been making 3g radios for years, i doubt its a hardware issue.
    im not fringe but close to it and heavily wooded area, 4/5 bars 90% of the time though. before ee4 i was dropping to 3g alot, since ee4 maybe twice i lost 4g.
    for 2 weeks or so i been on ep1f and still consistently good.
    leads me to believe its software and they are working out the bugs.
    those having problems definitely want to call and complain alot. if they get repeated complaints from an area they have to issue a trouble ticket, which makes a tech go and physically check towers for proper operation.
    call *611 every time you have an issue, the only way to get things fixed is complain alot, and if your savvy you can work in monthly credits when you have a history of problems. ask to talk to supervisors and their supervisors.... dont be rude, and when you get one of the liberal reps, lead them on but dont ask for credits, hint that your looking around and tired of the problems.....

    ok enough babbling lol i gotta move on, good luck..

    Yes, it's been said many times. It doesn't work.
