No 3g data?


aimbdd

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if anyone can help me fix my data problem. It shows that i am connected to 1x but not 3g, and i have the data speeds to confirm it. I have called sprint and had them do all their trouble shooting. They just want to replace the device now, which I dont want to do. Never had good luck with refurbs.

I am rooted, with a custom rom installed. I tried hard reseting, soft reseting, reseting the data profile from the ##data# menu. Any suggestions?

I had a problem with a ROM on my Evo Shift one time that caused that same thing. I quickly changed back to another ROM I knew worked.

Well i tried that' date=' it shows "3g" but isn't connected to 3g. Still 1x speeds and it still shows 1x under the debug menu.[/quote']

 

Hmm, Sprint had to rebuild my account and had me manually provision my phone before I got working 3G data on my Viper when I first activated it.

Any more suggestions? I really don't want to have to exchange my phone for a non s-off one..

 

I think you should consider yourself fortunate to get any exchange at all. That would be a gift. Does the warranty normally cover rooted and modded phones that stop working? The common sense rule is that folks who mod their phones are at their own risk from that point, especially for software issues.

As long as the rooting isn't what broke it, sprint will replace it. Seeing as this happens even at complete stock..

 

If i received a new phone updated phone i wouldnt be able to s-off it.

I am assuming you did a hard rest right? Well if you did, instead of going under settings to hard reset your phone go to the dial pad and type ##786#, I am not sure if it will ask for you msl or not(I don't think it will), hit menu then hit reset. This will hard reset your phone a little more thoroughly than just going through settings to do so. It may be a long shot but give it a try.

if you have an extra sprint phone, try doing an swap with it, then swap back (with the phone off) after a few hours (in a good sprint coverage area-outside) and try the ##786# again

    • T-Mobile wins more 5G spectrum over AT&T's objections So now it's official?
    • Just got back from Puerto Rico. I spent a lot of time going around the San Juan metro area, predominantly in Viejo San Juan, Santurce, Isla Verde, and a short stop in University Gardens.  T-Mobile's network still performs as well today as it did when I last tested and in my opinion is the best on the island. n41 is still at 100MHz in most areas though I did record a few areas with only 80MHz. Yesterday the FCC announced that they're finally granting T-Mobile their Auction 108 winnings so we'll probably finally see that increase. They also have 15MHz of n25 and 15MHz of n25 and 15MHz n71. The fastest speed I recorded while there was 922 down and 120 up, presumably aggregating n41+n25 and potentially n71 as well but I wasn't able to confirm that. A couple of things I noticed about their network are that their is a ton of split-sector n25 deployed in San Juan, much like in the U.S. I even noticed some n41 sites that had 4 or more sectors. The weirdest being the site on top of SJU Airport where they have 6 n41 sectors each broadcasting 80MHz of n41. AT&T SIMs roam on LIberty's network but they still treat it as the home network. In my opinion they're the second best network in Puerto Rico. Liberty is still using the AT&T MCC-MNC code and is pretty much coasting on AT&T's network upgrades. They have 10MHz n5 virtually everywhere but I never saw my phone connect to any other 5G bands. Their saving grace was just how much spectrum they have to aggregate across midband and lowband. I'd see combos like 10MHz n5 + 20MHz B2 + 10MHz B66 + 10MHz Band 30 + 5MHz Band 2 and get upwards of 200Mbps. Coverage was slightly worse than T-Mobile in my experience, even indoors which is a surprise given T-Mobile usually struggles a bit indoors due to their macro density. Verizon is roaming on Claro in Puerto Rico just as they have been for years. No idea if there is 5G roaming because I was connected to LTE the entire time. Toggling 5G didn't do anything and both pings and speeds weren't great. Speeds were in the 20-40Mbps range consistently and pings over 200ms. For comparison T-Mobile's pings are in the teens and Liberty pings are in the 40's even when roaming using an AT&T SIM. Claro's network is ok in my experience with nothing really notable about it.  — — — — — Here are some pics of sites that I took:
    • WTB instructed to process all 2.5GHz licenses across the USA. They are only giving up some spectrum in certain markets of Hawaii.
    • Is this just for licenses in Hawaii?
    • Yeah, it basically directs the bureau to proceed with granting the applications in the normal course.  It's no longer being held by the AT&T objection. - Trip
