    I hardly ever have 4g and I live in Miami where 4g is strong. My phone just sucks.

    I am wondering, is this a Thunderbolt thing or are other LTE phones dropping 4G to 3G all the time?

    4G in MA and CT has been dead slow since the Gingerbread update. I have been forced to switch to CDMA only (ie 3G). Hoping they fix this thing soon!

    Try restarting your phone. I was stuck on 3G but restarting brought back the 4G.

    Phoenix, AZ here. I've dropped to 3G a couple of times. Sometimes it's very brief (even though I should be on 4G) and sometimes I have to reset my phone. It almost always comes back though. Are you guys using Juice Defender? I think it interferes with my data on occasion and forgets to turn it back on.

    We had an outage the other day in Troy, AL. Since it came back on it has been phenomenal. Went from an average of 4-5 down to 10-20 down with pings in the 60-80ms range.

    Pretty much all the LTE phones have some problems with 4g connectivity. The Thunderbolt's has gotten better. I hear the bionic is having the same problems. It's a new technology, the next generation of LTE radios should be much improved on connectivity and battery life. Of course battery life will never be good until voice moves to LTE, then the phones wont have to run two separate radios all the time.
