    Does anybody have 4G but will stay stuck on 3G

    I have been noticing my phone stuck on 3G but after a reboot it gives me 4G.

    I will stay in the same spot upon reboot from the phone saying 3G then after a reboot I get 4G. Is that a software issue.

    I have the Otterbox Defender. I don't know if that has anything to do with overing the antenna radio.

    Shouldn't make a difference... Try this... shut the phone down pull the battery and pull the SIM card let it sit for about 5 minutes.... Put it back together and power it up. If that doesn't help contact your carrier about resetting the SIM card.... I used to have this issue ALL the time with my TBOLT had to go in every 2 months or so and get a new one.

    Holding the power button while battery is pulled helps as well, discharges excess energy built up in the phone.
