Hi all!

I apologize if this may have been asked elsewhere. I did perform a search but was unsuccessful in finding an answer. Since the 4.3 update in December on my stock Verizon Note 2 I am unable to use programs such as phoneinfo or 4g switch to get to the menu to switch to CDMA only. The apps instantly force close as soon as they're opened.

My 4G signal at work is terrible and switching to 3G made my phone useable, but since the 4.3 update this ability does not work.

Any help is greatly appreciated and again sorry if this may have been asked before.

I would really like to know how to do this too. Have you had any luck?

Try flashing an AOSP rom, use the toggle to turn off 4g, then install a Touchwiz rom.

Haven't tried it on 4.3 yet, but I use Advanced Signal Status from the Play Store on 4.2. Can't hurt to try.

I can confirm this works. Way better than my suggestion

THANK YOU! I have spent hours looking for an app capable of switching my network mode. I used to use Phone Info, but it just force closes upon opening ever since 4.3. Thanks again!
