Verizon’s 4G LTE Is Down, Everywhere!!

| April 27, 2011 | 1 Reply

If you have a 4G device and are wondering why you haz no 4Geez, this is why… Verizon’s 4G LTE network has been down for a while now, starting sometime last night. So if you have an HTC Thunderbolt or other LTE device you probably are, and will be, running at 1x until this fix it (even if you’re not in a 4G area, so no 3G to fall back on).

Verizon is aware of the issue and is working on it:

UPDATE:

For those of you looking for some 3G goodness until Verizon gets its LTE affiars in order, Do the following:

Dial ##778# and hit send

* A pop-up window named EPST will show up giving you 2 choices: View Mode and Edit Mode. Pick: Edit Mode.
* Enter the Password: 000000
* Go down to Modem Settings and pick “Rev A“
* You’ll want to choose enable and click OK, hit the menu button and then press “Commit Modifications.”
* Restart your phone and you should see 3G is working

For those that want instructions for after LTE is back on

These 2 steps will put you back on LTE and then put you back on the correct 3G for the Thunderbolt, when its back up.

dial *#*#4636#*#* to get LTE, set preferred network type to CDMA + LTE EvDo auto

Dial ##778# and hit send

  • A pop-up window named EPST will show up giving you 2 choices: View Mode and Edit Mode. Pick: Edit Mode.
  • Enter the Password: 000000
  • Go down to Modem Settings and pick “Rev A“
  • You’ll want to choose eHRPD and click OK, hit the menu button and then press “Commit Modifications.”
