When I first got my phone all bands show enabled.

I later did a data profile update because my 3g keeps dropping in and out.

I now look and LTE and Band 3 are disabled.

I re-enabled LTE (band 3 is not used in states so who cares) and rebooted phone, was fine.

Later I looked again and LTE (first one) is disabled/unchecked again.

What gives?

Anyone else notice similar?

Only with the s3, not s4 or s5

Band 25 is the first one that doesn't list the band name, they left the band off given it's the default cover all band as is 1900MHz which is original/native band for Sprint.

I think our phones have Band 41 as priority though because I have a far off tower that has LTE (close 3 towers don't lol) and the far tower has both 25 and 41 but for whatever reason it rather grab the weaker 41 band vs. the stronger 25 band. It also death grips the band once it has it only dropping to 3g, not 25 after I make it weaker by blocking signal more. Only way I can make it grab the 25 is disable the 41.

Odd. Can't wait till the towers near me are upgraded though. My battery life is about 9 hours MAX without even touching the phone for web, text or data, because it spends so much time signal hoppin. I have 3 towers near me all non-lte and a 4th one that's just outside range with LTE. This is my second S5 so I know it's not a dud phone...
