Try pulling the battery then the Sim card and leave out of the phone for 2 minutes. Then replace and reboot.

I found but can't remember where a tweak to adjust the radio sensitivities using the terminal program. My issues where solved

Yeah, I'm in pretty much the same boat. 4G is terrible with my note 3. Having to toggle airplane mode all the time to get service back is getting old. I flashed all the modems too and really can't tell the difference. My S4 is twice as fast and more reliable. Wish someone had a solution, because I'd hate to get rid of the note.

I'm in the same boat. Except mine was working great and then one day started working like crap. This is ridiculous. It also seems intermittent for me.

I went through all this when the GPS on my N3 begin to not lock quickly and be as accurate. I flashed, changed modems, tighten screws, etc. etc I have some long post on my N3 issue all steps i did. My N3 was never dropped has no cover not a scratch on it. After months of this, I called to get a replacement...rooted and put the exact same rom/radio back on...gps, signal all was spot on!
