Default [Q] Phone stuck on 3g. have to force it to LTE>

Been running CM 10.2 nightlies for a few weeks and everything has been smooth except the phone is stuck on 3g. If I go into mobile networks and network mode it was set to "CDMA + LTE/EvDo". Tried "Global" and still the same thing. The only way I can get it to work is if I choose "LTE" (and I did confirm it was running at full LTE speeds) which then makes calling impossible.

Not sure what to do, have played around with APN's but haven't found anything that works yet.

Also, tried updating to the latest radio and that didn't help.

Any ideas?

Follow my thread . I just went through the same thing. Short answer: new sim card

Can't keep 4g/LTE and voice calls at the same time

I saw your thread but I don't understand how I would be able to get LTE service (through forcing by selecting LTE only) if my SIM card was somehow fried. You would think if it was a bad SIM it would be more than just that. Also, both our cards "failing" in the same way.

I do remember dialing *228 a while back as I was having some connection issues but can't remember if I saw LTE before doing that. Almost think its Verizon's way of sticking it to those that unlock and flash roms (when you *228 you have to come replace your sim and get "outed").

One possibility is if you ever messed with *#*#4636#*#* & did anything to 3 dot menu band, you can have a hosed radio partition. Rsd restore is only fix.
Vzw does indeed want us not rooted as (edit)a lot rooted users cause them BIG headaches.

Android File Transfer SUCKS! Is there a no root solution for Osx? I am resorting to Parallels DeskTop-W7. Wait Wait Wait: My OTG fix works!

When my sim went from 4g on boot to 3g in 2 min, I just called & they mailed me one.
