Can the HTC EVO LTE be forced to stay on LTE instead of switching to 3g?

I'm in Houston, which is listed as being 70% completed but in reality I get poor speeds almost everywhere I go. Part of this is because my phone might show its on 4g but within a minute of doing anything on it, it will lose all data connection while it searches for a network. Then it will end up on 3g which is one tiny step up from useless. After a few minutes it will again lose connection while it works on switching to 4g and then the cycle will repeat itself. Everytime it switches from 4g to 3g or even 1x, I have no data connection for a maybe 10-15 seconds.

 

Is there a way to change a setting that will allow the phone to stay on 4g longer before switching to 3g? Even if its completely lost the LTE signal, I'd rather wait 10-15 seconds for the phone to get back on 4g rather than waste time on 3g and then waste more time switching back to 4g.

I'm pretty sure there was a topic about this regarding the EVO LTE, as far as the ONE X I'm not sure.

Here is the link regarding the LTE "Fix"

 

Hope it helps.

Thanks! I actually did mean EVO LTE but I've gotten used to calling it One X since thats what its named for every other carrier. :(

 

Maybe a mod can clean up that title for me...

Ah, you meant the EVO LTE? That makes more sense because the One X does not come in a Sprint compatible CDMA2000 variant.

 

Here is your solution:

 

*#*#4636#*#* > Phone info > LTE, CDMA

 

Let the baseband restart. And there you go, EV-DO is disabled.

Tried changing to "LTE/CDMA auto" but I still get a 3g connection (and 1x)

 

CDMA1X is 3G. Are you sure that your 3G connection is not CDMA1X?

 

Also, you appear to be running a third party ROM. In order for this method to work, you may need to be on a stock ROM.

I'm pretty sure that the rom I'm running isnt preventing the change from taking affect but when I am able, I'll try going back to stock and retrying. I dont know if my 3g connection is CDMA1X. I'm just going by the icon at the top that switches from 4g to 3g to 1x.

 

Sorry for the delay in replying... Had to put this aside for a few days while other priorities ate up my free time.

Is there an app on the market that brings you to this screen?

    • I have added T-Mobile eNB 879366, a Sprint convert site, to the list of gig+ sites, as I was able to break the 800 Mbps ceiling with it. I'm still trying to understand the DAS mess at LGA and locate them, but the bad thing about it is inside the terminals I can occasionally pick up the macros inside. It anchors 5G, which is great for a speed boost, but occasionally data hangs because my device is having a handoff frenzy trying to pick the best macro and/or band for the 5G connection.   I have spotted 2 more Dish sites, one on the corner of Church Avenue and East 16th (photo below), and the other is an in progress site co-located with Verizon eNB 81069.   At Verizon eNB 81069, the ports on the Dish panel weren't connected yet, brand new racks were being used on the roof Verizon is on, and it looks like Sprint's equip is still up on the building next door.
    • Neat!  Thanks.  Most of my issues at the moment are from inexperience.  I've never used AT commands and I'm bad at Python.  I'm not really sure what the best way is to send AT commands to the modem; socat seems to work, and there are Python libraries that should do it, but I don't really know what I'm doing.  - Trip
    • If you need any assistance, firmware or drivers with the radio; I am involved in Quectel's US based sales and field application engineer programs. I am working on the x62 reference RM520/N right now. They are a really fun product to work with.  
    • Thanks for the locations, I will try them sometime in the next week or so.
