    Default LG G3 with Poor Reception

    I am sitting here in Woodinville, Wa. Major city. Going from 4g to 3g to 1x to no network available. Not moving. Restart phone. Same thing. Returning it tomorrow.

    LOL. I was in a major/busy part of Orlando, Florida last week and I've never thought I'll see the day that Verizon would provide me with such horrible data. (This was on a LG G2 at the time, btw.) But still, in the morning when I woke up and grabbed my phone and surfed the web, it was a breeze. But once everyone started waking up and started to consume the bandwidth, I swear I couldn't even load a signal mobile page, let alone a full web page. I said all of that, to say this, it may not be the phone but the tower or the network. I would try getting on in the late hours when there is less traffic and if you're still not able to hold an connection, then you should return it. If you are able to hold a connection, then you might want to look into switching carriers. I couldn't imagine people who lived in that part of Orlando that I was staying for vacation, could be happy with Verizon service if that's what they're constantly getting and paying for.

    hate the phone all ya want... but ya know... chances are it could have been a network issue with your carrier.

    now if you were going 4g to 3g to 1x everywhere you go... then ya... maybe something with the phone.

    May be working on the towers.
    May be heavy local use.
    May be lots of things other than the phone.

    BUT, exchange it for another just to be safe.

    I'm sure the new phone that you get will never lose reception

    I have had issues exactly the same and turns out there was a problem with the Network, still happens on occasion such is the way of things lol

    Can you compare it to another phone?

    Don't think you should be so quick, check to see if there is any issues with your network for your area.

    Rule out all possibilities first.

    I have been similar issues of no service and dropping calls. I assumed it was switching carriers until I realized my wife's 5S wasn't having these problems. Replaced the sim card with a new one and it seems to have gotten better. I love this phone but if it keeps up, it will be returned.

    Sorry tenmousers, been to Woodinville Wa. Not a major city. Sounds like a carrier issue. Need to move closer to Seattle.

    Agree. OE. Too be fair might be defective. Don't hate the phone. Take it back get another. Your too quick to make a huge statement of hate. Pleanty of other phones go back not just G3.

    A quick Google search reveals Woodville has a population of about 11000, which really is not a major city. I'd guess it has 2-4 towers at most. It's quite possible that the towers in that city are undergoing some type of maintenance. Try another phone, or another city before giving up on a great phone.

    OP: What a coincidence. I was just in the Woodinville store yesterday, and picked up the same phone.

    Live in Bothell. Don't think I'm having the problems you are describing. What does speedtest.net tell you?

    PM me .;-)

    I have several friends in in Woodinville, Cottage Lake etc. I haven't experienced any problems. Though it is a "suburb" so if your on the outlying areas you could see spotty areas with any carrier further out. Who knows it could be congestion like others have mentioned or your you may have just got a bad G3. You may just want to swap it for another.

    This sounds like a carrier problem, make sure you call in to your carriers tech support to check the towers in your area and see if any of them are down.

    I live in Renton (which I wouldn't call major and has almost 10x the population of Woodinville), not having problems at all. Maybe you need to get one of those signal boosters for your home.

    Carrier not configure your phone to your account correctly? Call and make sure. May need a reset afterwards just to make sure.

    I know when trying to configure my nexus 4 to AT&T I had to use custom APN settings shared on this forum because carrier didn't have Nexus 4 in system and took a few tweaks until I found the one that worked.

    I certainly understand your frustration but I will never understand these short sighted, attention seeking threads. Why not take it to the store and see if the phone is defective first before throwing a hissyfit on the internet?

    Good luck getting the issue resolved.

    Maybe a tower was down? Cellular service isn't always reliable and more now since so many improvements are being completed.

    While this may not be directly related, I have been having some mobile network issues with my new G3. A number of times recently I have pulled my phone out of my pocket to find it with no cellular connection at all or no mobile data connection. Forcing Airplane Mode and mobile data connectivity on and off doesn't seem to fix things. This has also happened when turning the phone on. Anyone else experiencing this?

    Or a tree could have fallen into a tower. That happened near here recently.

    Yep, my signal strength is all over the place, returning mine today as it just keeps dropping connectivity. I am also in the UK using Three UK network
