    Out of the blue I suddenly have no service/data. When making a call I get "radio off" and the error "To place a call, first turn off Airplane mode." but my airplane mode is off. I can't make calls/text or do anything with service.

    Things I have tried that did NOT work:
    *#*#4363#*#*
    Toggling mobile data
    Toggling airplane mode
    Turning off airplane mode, reboot phone, turn airplane mode on
    Reboot in safe mode
    Updating profile
    Updating firmware
    Soft reset
    Turning off phone and waiting 20 minutes, reboot
    Turning off phone, taking out battery, pressing power button, waiting 20 minutes, reboot
    A new SIM card
    Calling Sprint multiple times

    I hear that other users who have this issue have flashed a modem(??) and that that can fix the issue but I do not know what that means or how to do it.

    Welcome to Android Central.

    I've moved your thread to the LG G3 forum so it will get more exposure to people familiar with this device.

    Update: The resolution to this issue according to the sprint store is to type ##Update # in the call dialer. Confirmed working.

    Welcome to Android Central! Which carrier are you on? What do you mean by "preferred network mode:22"?
