    Default Galaxy S3 only connects to 3G when I have no cell signal?

    I have a Galaxy s3 that I bought used off ebay a month ago. I use it with the Ting (sprint) network. I should have great LTE connectivity in my area.

    The problem is I do not get connectivity anywhere but one place, and it is the one place where my phone gets a poor signal due to being inside a thick brick building. I usually do not get incoming calls and have either no bars or maybe one. This is the only place in the city that I get 3G icon to come on, and it actually gets slow internet connectivity. When i go outside, I get a good signal strength and after awhile it goes away.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Try updating your profile in settings. You may have found out the reason why someone was selling it on EBay. Possible radio problem....
