    Default Poor 4g/3g hand off

    Anyone notice or have problems with the hand off between 4g to 3g and back? I work in fringe area and I have many data drops just as bad as my thunderbolt. I can't find the force the 3g cmda option.

    I can probably count on one hand the number of times I've dropped to 3g, but no noticeable difficulty doing so. I'm also coming from a tbolt and on that turd, if I wasnt on wifi, I had about a 40% chance of getting data on a good day.

    I had good data with the latest radios and ICS leak on it. My problem is the section of highway I travel, it's not a big deal but annoying. I've missed several calls on this phone and had to restart my mobile data a few times. I'm calling verizon tonight to see what they think

    Update: Verizon said to find an app to force me into 3G.

    Losing your data connection should not cause you to miss calls. You may have some other issue going on here besides bad 4G to 3G handoff.

    "Phone info" app works great.

    I have had the phone for 5 days and I lost signal once during a hand-off that I know of.

    I had the same issue until I turned mine from international to cdma\3g\4g only

    I've notice that in a couple areas I show 1 bar in 4G, but it won't actually move any data or drop to 3G. It's unusual, but it's happened a couple times.

    To the OP...

    To toggle between 3g and 3g/LTE - Go to 'settings' - 'more settings' right at the top under wifi and bluetooth - 'mobile networks' - 'network mode'

    That's how I do it on my GN2 from Sprint.

    We don't have the same options on the Verizon phone. The options are global, cdma/lte and a third. Which I can't check at moment in airplane mode.
