    Is there a way to force the Droid Charge into an LTE only mode? It keeps switching back and forth to 3G when i'm clearly in a coverage area for LTE. When LTE's on, it shows full bars... weird.

    Anyway, is there a way to force the device into LTE only and not fall back to 3g? Thanks.

    It switches to 3G when it can't get 4G. If it can't get 4G for whatever reason, there is no way to force it to do so.

    That's just not true. On the thunderbolt you can force LtE only. If I leave it in auto it constantly goes between 3 and 4. When I set LTE only I get a solid 3 bars so don't say its only reverting to 3g because it can't get 4g...you're just talking out of your ***.

    i dont really see the need for that last comment or the language.

    .. i have only found options for CDMA only and LTE automatic on the charge. im trying to go through hidden menus and there is an option for LTEmode but i think this is equal to LTE automatic so, so far i have not seen an LTE only option

    There is a way, yes. The problem is, if you disable CDMA (3G goes poof with it), you won't be able to get calls.

    Funny, I thought this was a Charge forum. It's nice the TBold can do it, but the Charge can't. So you were wrong and pretty classless in how you responded to what was a correct statement. Gotta love public forums.

    Classless, maybe, but that doesn't make the original statement correct. I haven't figured out a way to do it yet, but if I do, I'll let you know. I'm having the same problem with my phone switching to 3G when I am driving around in my 4G city. If I am standing still, it is perfect 4G, but when I start moving, I find it switching back and forth some.

    That's funny... He gave a TRUE statement for the Charge... i don't see anything about the bolt in his statement. If you beleive his statement to be false, how about you teach us how LTE can be forced on the Charge?

    Some things I found browsing around on google:

    Force LTE-only Mode? - Verizon Wireless Community

    Samsung Droid Charge VS HTC Thunderbolt Review | Best Phone Reviews & News

    AnandTech.com - Samsung Droid Charge Review - Droid Goes LTE
    This can be found about halfway down at the "Page 5" heading.
    . However, theres no LTE only mode that would force the Charge to hang onto LTE a bit longer, although its behavior wouldnt offer any power savings.

    Damn. That would work but not being able to text/call is a 'bit' of a problem. Hopefully Sammy releases an update or someone finds a way. Thanks guys!
