    Default Jelly Bean update modem is horrible.

    So I decided to conduct a test with the Li3 modem and the Lj7 modem and I have concluded that if you live in an LTE area its best to stay with the Li3 modem. The Lj7 modem basically takes LTE away from the device as I am not able to connect in the location I was able to otherwise connect. I was getting strong indoor LTE coverage with Li3 but with the new modem its not so. 3g on Lj7 seems strong but LTE isn't so.

    Settings/More/Mobile Networks/Network Mode

    Select "LTE/CDMA"

    Not sure why they made the default "CDMA"

    Really, its different for everyone, where i live the radio greatly enhanced my 3g service and we won't be getting 4g EVER here in northeast Ohio, only Cleveland which is in the round 3 update list for some reason, even though Cleveland is one of sprints biggest markets.

    My radio seems normal. I get the same signal in all areas of town.

    I guess it depends where you are. I am getting LTE in more places than I was before.

    So I've searched and am unable to locate this list you speak of. Can you give me a link or let me know when/if Columbus Oh will be seeing LTE, please?

    Go to s4gru.com and go to the forums. In the "Network Vision" section at the top, one of the stickies is an "NV Deployment Running List". That's where he got his info.

    Edit: Here's a link. The thread was just updated today, too.

    Thanks a ton, I will keep watching but I hope I didn't buy a LTE phone that I will never get to see it's full potential!
