After learning so much on the forum, this is my first post.

I've never seen a problem like this and I did everything I could in order to solve it. I really ask for the help of forum members to shed a light...


When the internet is set on WCDMA/GSM or WCDMA only, it works for a little time (something between 10seconds to 5 minutes) and stops for a random time (something between 1 to 30 minutes).
If I make a call and it connects, during the duration of the call the HSPA works flawlessly (That is way too weird!)


1 - The internet works perfectly in the GSM only mode
2 - The place where I'm has a great reception for the HSPA (I have another phone to make sure of it)
3 - I did a complete factory reset and now I've KitKat 4.4 (installed through Odin) and the phone is rooted. The problem was there before all of that.
4 - As I said, during a call the connection works great without any problems at all.

Is there anything I can do? I complained to my service provider and they opened a file to send to the tech department.
My guesses are either there is something wrong with the SIM card or with my line. But I want to rule out any software or hardware issues...

Is there anyone that can help me?

I've had glitchy internet once after flashing a custom ROM. Couldn't find anything wrong as well.
Then I stumbled on a tip from someone who said it could be the location settings under Google settings.
I switched once to GPS only and then selected high precision and after that the problem was gone.
Don't know if it will help you but definitely worth a quick try.
Hope it helps.

What are you running? Stock? Unrooted?

If not, be sure you aren't using any Xposed Modules or apps that automatically tweak your data connection.
Make sure your APN settings are correct for your provider.

Other than those things, I can't think of anything else that would make your connection as wonky as it is.

I'm running stock KitKat 4.4.2. Anyway, the problem was there on 4.3 also. Yes, it is unrooted but with just a few apps and none of them messes the conexion...And, in any case, I've done hard resets at least 3 times...


Thanks for the info. Unfortunatly without luck. Still, I've found out that while the GPS is working (say, under Google Maps), the HSPA also works...
