I tried toggling 4G... going into and out of flight mode... taking the battery out and restarting... going into GSM only and then back to auto select.. Nothing worked.

The method I described above apparently forces LTE only mode and somehow causes it to stick on LTE after going back to Automatic.

I've been doing it all day with great success. It would be nice if it automatic went back to LTE, but in the meantime this is a solution where there wasn't one before.

It's because they just recently updated the tower. I was having the same issue in my area. I thought it was the phone and had it replaced. I finally spoke to someone at T-Mobile who knew what they were talking about. He said that it takes them months to tweak the tower until they get the optimum signal. Once that happens, you should go back to LTE after a call.

I'm using the T-Mobile note 3 with stock Rom, rooted with carrier iq and knox removed and that is the process I use to make it work for me.
