    We have the sprint samsung note 2. If we have it checked automatic shouldn't it automatically change when 4g is available?

    If you've never looked at Sensorly.com, you might want to check there for some different coverage maps pulled from user generated data.

    On the Note 2, pretty sure LTE is on by default.

    I have mine set to automatic and my 4g radio picked up on its own. I am in Westchester County NY and I was in Peekskill today when i saw the 4G symbol. Did some speed test and got upto 24mbs with 7.5mbs down. So on auto you should still be able to get it.

    I found out that he did not have his phone set to automatic and that is why it did not not come up.

    Automatic will change automatically. However, it only checks for lte at intervals, not constantly

    In Detroit probably never lmao.

    When the Evo first came out, they claimed we would have 4g within 3 months .... years have passed since then, now they are converting to LTE and we are not even on the list for future roll out. Sucks i love sprint and there plans, but there 3G is so slow.

    CDMA/LTE is the default option.

    Your device should pick it up automatically.

    I just started picking up 4G in Chicago city limits.

    If you have sprint you can ask for an airavr to use at home. I get no signal at home without it. You should set your phone to automatic to get 4g occasionally.

    maryinredding i saw your signature as you are happy user from NOTE 2 but, i believe there are many reasons to get disappointed, First of all i am getting annoyed battery problem Backup last long for 3 hours max....
    In 4G ( I am able to get connected) my phone battery drains even much faster.. When i connected to charger even then it drains until i turn off mobile data..

    I am not sure what makes you happy, Please share and let me know if there is any setting/technique that i need to follow??

    I've followed procedure below but still could not see LTE in the selection...

    1. To check that 4G is setup and enabled please go to:
    Settings > More Networks > Mobile Networks >
    LTE/WCDMA/GSM (auto connect) should be selected.

    2. If you are not sure that your update has been installed please go to:
    Settings > More/General > About Device > Software Update >
    Once Update is selected you should be told that the latest updates have been installed.
