A Fix For Verizon Galaxy S3 4G LTE Connectivity Problem

Advertisements
A slew of new features graced the newly rolled out Jelly Bean update for Samsung Galaxy S3 under Verizon Wireless' umbrella. However, a major issue was immediately discovered; the device's 4G LTE connectivity became unstable. Some owners reported to receive a bar or two of signal, others say connection was intermittent and some say they were unable to connect to the internet with it.
Currently, there is only one possible solution to this problem. We've tried it and it worked. Basically, all you need to do is change the network mode from 'global' to 'LTE/CDMA' so the device wouldn't be stuck in global GSM, which doesn't support 4G. Here's how to do it:
1. From the Home screen, tap the Menu key.
2. Choose Settings.
3. Tap More Networks.
4. Go to Mobile Networks.
5. Now choose LTE/CDMA by touching it.
   
In our case, we weren't receiving any 4G signal after the update at all. And NO, Factory Reset CANNOT solve this problem. We know, we already tried it. It was only after we changed the network mode that we were able to get 3 bars of signal (we used to have full). So, basically, Verizon has to look into this matter because there is really a problem with the new firmware.
