Really weird story.. This all started Sunday morning when I left for work.. I noticed that I was only pulling 3g, shrugged it off and went on about my day. It stayed solely on 3G all day Sunday, and hasn't connected to LTE once, with the one exception being while I was in a Sprint store, trying to resolve the issue, but of course they have their own repeaters.. As soon as I had left the store, I dropped back down to 3G. While I was in the store, they mentioned that they had updated the tower nearest my house to 800 mhz, which is supposed to be better for building penetration, on Thursday of last week.. The manager tried telling me that the tower will suffer weaker signal until other area towers are upgraded.. Has anyone else heard of this? I have tried updating PRL, profile, using the ## command, and nothing will give me 4G, and it's really damn frustrating!

sounds like another Sprint excuse; I couldnt take them anymore and dumped them for T-Mo, which works great in Chicago land..

Surprisingly enough, I received 4G about an hour after posting this.. Curiosity got the best of me, and I ran a speed test

Decent speeds for Sprint. Speaking of speeds, compare my WiFi to my 4g...
