    Default 3g stuck?

    Hi y'all, I'm having a problem with my mobile data. Since I woke up this morning, my data symbol has been flashing the 3g up arrow. No down. I've had this problem once before a couple weeks ago. This time was on a drive from Orange County to LA, moving from 4g to 3g with the problem persisting. It lasted the whole morning into the early afternoon, when it suddenly started working. I thought the reconnection may have been triggered by my uninstalling/installing Stitcher or Google Voice because it started working shortly after I did such. Well, I did that first thing this morning with no results. Not driving this morning.
    I'm rooted running MacksRom 3.5 MA7, kernel version 3.0.31-265523 SMP PREEMPT, Android version 4.1.2.
    Any help or previous experience with this problem would be appreciated.

    Default Re: 3g stuck?

    I have had this issue a couple of times also. I am also in the LA/Orange County area. For me it seems to be related to hitting a dead spot where I have no data coverage and I get a data roaming warning message. After I get out of the dead spot, I get no data (only up green arrow). There have been other times where I get data back after I leave the dead spot. One time when this happened, it finally started working again some hour or so later. Not sure what caused it to work again.

    This morning I tried turning the phone to airplane mode. Wait 15 seconds or so. Turn the airplane mode off. The data started working again.

    I am starting to see more 4g in the orange county area. I do not know if this is part of the issue.

    I am seeing this problem on my Note 2 alot. Sometimes if I have to turn on airport mode then off to get it back working. Sometimes doesn't matter what I do it doesn't work. I am glad I am not the only one. It seems like Sprint is getting worse and worse everyday.

    I live in a place where my phone bounces between 3 and 4 all day long, when it happens either connect to wifi, airplane mode or if required just restart your phone. Fixes every time
