Are you among the iPhone users experiencing 4G/3G & LTE connectivity issues? Have you tried seemingly every possible solution, but the issue persists? What’s the fix to this 4G/3G & LTE issue?
Speaking of fixes, there are some tried and true tricks that have solved this pesky problem for ages. Let’s give them a shot to fix the issue of 3G, 4G & LTE not working on iPhone or iPad.How to fix 3G/4G & LTE not working on iPhone or iPad
Check your Cellular Connection
First off, ensure that 3G/4G is enabled on your device. This may sound obvious, but sometimes basic details slip our minds. So, it’s better to check them upfront—you might save yourself a lot of time.
Head over to Settings → Cellular/Mobile Data. Make sure it’s toggled on.
Then, tap Cellular/Mobile Data Options → Enable 4G → Choose Voice & Data.
Turn Mobile Data on/off a few times. It might solve the issue immediately.
Toggle Airplane Mode
Turning on Airplane Mode and then turning it off after a few seconds might solve the 4G/3G or LTE connectivity. To do so: swipe up on the iPhone home screen (On iPhone X Series or later, swipe down from the top-right corner) and Turn On and Off Airplane Mode.
Remove the SIM Card/Restart your iPhone
Sometimes, restarting your phone can automatically fix a few issues. Let’s see if it can help.
Power down your iPhone.
Remove the SIM card and reinsert it.
Restart your phone: Press and hold on the sleep/wake button and when the red slider appears, drag it to switch off your device.
After a while, press and hold the sleep/wake button to power on your iPhone.
Turn off SIM PIN
Note: Some carriers distribute iPhones with SIM PIN enabled by default. Contact your carrier to check your default SIM PIN.
No luck? Contact your carrier and explain the problem.
Contact your carrier to make sure your account is properly set up and there is no problem with your current data plan.
Check the error messages in the carrier logs.
To boost performance or resolve existing bugs, carriers often roll out updates. So, be sure your carrier settings are updated.
Go to Settings → General → About → check the carrier version. If an update is available, download and install it.
Reset Network Settings
Resetting Network Settings can fix 3G, 4G, or LTE not working on iPhone or iPad.
Note: Resetting your Network Settings will remove all the previous preferences such as Wi-Fi passwords, VPN settings, preferred network, etc.
iOS updates have a reputation for solving specific annoying issues.
If you haven’t updated your device in a while or if there’s a software update waiting for you, upgrading might just do the trick.
Plug your iPhone into a power source.
Launch Settings → Tap General → Tap Software Update.
Tap Download and Install → Tap Install.
Restore your iPhone
If all the solutions mentioned above haven’t fixed the issue, restoring your iPhone can work as a last resort. Before moving ahead, back up your device!
Note: Restoring your iPhone will delete all of your data and install the newest version of iOS.
Don’t give up yet if the issue still isn’t resolved. Contact the godfather! But seriously, contact Apple itself.

So when I got my hands on the phone, my first thought was to see what the device could do in 4G country–cities where Sprint’s partner, Clearwire, has had its 4G WiMax network up and running for a good while. So I flew up to the Pacific Northwest with the EVO 4G to try it out in six 4G cities on Clearwire’s WiMax network.
On Day One, last Thursday (May 27), I checked out 4G on the EVO in four northwestern Washington cities: Tacoma, Seattle, Snohomish, and Bellingham. In this article, I’ll give you my impressions of how the phone and the network performed in those cities. On Friday, May 28, I sampled the 4G service in Portland, Oregon, and Salem, Oregon. Tomorrow, in the second part of this story, I’ll discuss the results of those tests.Day One
Though I was impressed with the general reliability of the 4G service in the four Washington cities I tested–that is, my ability to connect with the network from almost all testing locations–I can’t say the service was fast enough to turn the EVO 4G into a game-changing, eye-opening, revolutionary communications device.
Sprint says the EVO 4G phone will connect with average download speeds of between 3 megabits per second (mbps) and 6 mbps, and adds that EVO 4G users may see speed bursts of up to 10 mbps. In my tests, the EVO usually connected at around 2.5 mbps–nothing special when compared with the speeds of AT&T’s HSPA 7.2 network and T-Mobile’s rapidly spreading HSPA+ 3G network–and I never encountered those 10-mbps bursts of speed that Sprint talks about. In fact, in two days of use, the EVO never broke the 3-mbps mark.How I Tested
My tests of mobile apps running on 4G were not scientific in any formal sense. I simply tracked the EVO 4G’s performance on various 4G networks over two days of driving around, and noted my thoughts about that performance versus some of the other networks and devices I’ve tested in the past. Testing wireless networks is a hit-or-miss proposition to begin with: Performance depends on such factors as buildings and other obstructions in the vicinity, the weather, and the number of other users on the network at the time of the test.
In the smaller cities of Snohomish and Bellingham, I performed a single set of tests at each city’s center. In Tacoma, I tested from two locations; and in Seattle, from four locations.The Apps
Qik comes preinstalled on the EVO 4G and is designed to facilitate the phone’s videoconferencing function. Since I couldn’t test videoconferencing with another EVO on the 4G network, I created a live stream with the EVO and then monitored it with my 4G-connected laptop, recording the time the live stream took to show up on the laptop, the time delay between the live recording on the phone and broadcast on the laptop, and the audio and video quality of the stream. In this way I could gauge how quickly the live video was uploading to the Qik server and then downloading for playback on the laptop.
I used a YouTube high-quality Web video to test video downlink performance on the EVO 4G. Using the same HQ movie file for each test, I noted the video’s load time, clarity and sharpness, audio/video synchronization, and pixelation and other artifacts.
Layar is a location-based service that superimposes various kinds of data over the real-world image you seen through the smartphone camera. I usually searched either for nearby eateries or for nearby Twitter tweets during my tests, noting how quickly the app retrieved detailed information about restaurants and tweets nearby.Tacoma
I parked my car in downtown Tacoma, Washington, and set up shop in a Starbucks in the ground floor of a city office building there. I had a little trouble getting the phone to connect with the 4G network, but after I stepped outside and played with the EVO’s wireless settings a little, the 4G symbol appeared on the screen. Next, I drove down by the water at the Port of Tacoma and parked in a small strip mall across the street from the docks–and picked up 4G immediately, on both the EVO 4G phone and the Sprint Overdrive hotspot that I used to connect my laptop.
In downtown Tacoma, the YouTube HQ video took perhaps 5 seconds to load. When it did the picture contained some rather large, square-shaped artifacting, and the sound and video did not seem to be synced perfectly. At the port, the video looked better: The artifacting was smaller and less widespread, and the syncing issue I noticed downtown seemed to have disappeared. The video still didn’t look like high-quality, high-definition video, but it was certainly watchable.
Testing the Qik app, I initiated a live stream from the EVO and waited for the stream to display at the Qik site running in a browser on my laptop. And waited. After a few minutes I gave up. The stream may have been uploading to the Qik servers from the phone, but it was not making the return trip down through the 4G network to the Sprint Overdrive hotspot. The same thing happened when I tried initiating a stream from across town at the Port of Tacoma. The phone appeared to be shooting and sending a stream, but I couldn’t monitor it on the laptop.
When I used the Layar augmented reality app in downtown Tacoma to detect eateries nearby, results populated the screen quickly, but surprisingly few little hamburger-and-French-fries symbols (used to signify restaurants in the area) showed up on the screen.
At the Port of Tacoma, the 4G-connected Layar app quickly detected the two or three restaurants in the small strip mall in back of me. Using the app to detect tweets being sent by people in the area, I didn’t come up with much–evidently, dockworkers and fry cooks don’t tweet much.
So far, I was not very impressed by 4G. On to Seattle.Seattle
I tested my set of three apps at four locations in Seattle: near the Space Needle, in the central business district (tall buildings), at the edge of Lake Union, and at the University of Washington campus. At the Space Needle and Lake Union locations, I had trouble keeping the EVO phone connected to the 4G network consistently. I sometimes succeeded in reconnecting with 4G by manually instructing the phone in its settings menu to reconnect–a trick that seemed to work best outside–but in other cases the phone, after having lapsed into 3G mode, could not reconnect with 4G.
In all Seattle locations, however, I could test the YouTube HQ video in 4G mode. The video continued to look watchable by Internet video standards, but it still contained some pixelation and didn’t move in the fluid way that you see in true high-def video. In my first two testing locations in downtown Seattle, the video showed smaller pixelation and less jitter than it did from my Union Lake and University of Washington locations. The video I watched looked somewhat better at all four of my Seattle locations than it did at either of my Tacoma locations earlier in the day.
I had a hard time with the Qik live video app in all four of my Seattle testing spots. I noted a delay of at least 5 seconds between the initiation of the recording on the phone and the display of the video at the Qik site running in a browser on my laptop. And after the video started playing in the laptop, it often stalled a few seconds later. Once it began running again, the delay between the live stream and what I saw on the laptop was significant–usually 7 to 10 seconds but sometimes as much as 20 seconds. With performance like that, I have to wonder how well videoconferencing among smartphones connected on the 4G network will work.
The Layar app worked very well in Seattle, immediately detecting and displaying information about numerous food places in my testing areas. I could also detect and display the tweets of nearby Twitter users, but in most locations their profile pictures failed to register and overlay on the horizon (as viewed through the camera of the EVO phone). On the University of Washington campus, however, the Layar app was truly impressive. The app immediately registered perhaps 50 tweets in the general area, and immediately displayed the profile pics of the tweeters superimposed on their locations on campus.Snohomish
After driving through the countryside north of Seattle for about 40 miles, I arrived in the quiet little burg of Snohomish on the bank of the Snohomish River. After sitting down at a restaurant on First Street (the main drag), I was disappointed to find that I couldn’t establish a 4G connection on the EVO phone. After trying a few times while standing out in the middle of First Street, I managed to get 4G for just long enough to test some apps, but the connection seemed extremely tenuous.
Even when the EVO connected to 4G, the performance of the apps made it seem as though I were connected to a 3G signal–and not a very good one. Watching the YouTube HQ video out in the street, I saw a lot of pixelation and jitter, especially in moments of high motion in the video. The Layar app was able to detect some of the eateries around, but it took some time to display their locations overlaid on the EVO camera’s view.
I had to take the phone back into the restaurant to try out the Qik live video streaming service, so that I could monitor the stream on my laptop. The phone immediately switched back to 3G mode, but my laptop maintained a steady 4G connection via the Sprint Overdrive mobile hotspot. The “live” video stream I shot with the EVO phone showed up (after a few fits and starts) on my laptop about 15 seconds after it was captured. Can you imagine trying to videoconference with someone who sees your mouth move 15 seconds after you’ve said something?Bellingham
Another 60 miles farther north in Bellingham, Washington, I drove straight to the Bellingham Public Market in the city center to have a latte and to look for 4G. As in Snohomish an hour before, I found that keeping a solid connection to the 4G network was a bit of a challenge. Inside the market, the phone was stuck in 3G mode and couldn’t make a 4G connection automatically or after I tried to connect manually in the phone’s wireless network settings.
After taking a seat by the window at the front of the market, however, I was able to connect to 4G. Still, the YouTube HQ video contained some large square-shaped artifacting and appeared a little jittery. Using Qik, the live video stream I shot from the phone again took about 15 seconds to display at the Website on my 4G-connected laptop, so the stream could hardly be called “live.”
On the other hand, the Layar application worked well in Bellingham. The app detected and overlaid the locations of both restaurants and a few tweets in the area, after searching for just a few seconds.Day-One Conclusions
My general impression of 4G service, in the state of Washington at least, is that the service will make the apps you already use run marginally better and faster, but it won’t make possible a whole new class of high-bandwidth mobile apps. Not yet, anyway.
Stay tuned for the rest of my EVO 4G impressions tomorrow.
What price freedom? In terms of 3G wireless Internet access, it’s about $40 to $60 per month, with a two-year contract. But unlike most other mobile broadband services from U.S. wireless carriers, Virgin Mobile USA’s new Broadband2Go service doesn’t shackle you while setting you free. You can use the wireless mobile broadband service as needed–no contract required.The Back Story
On June 10, Virgin Mobile USA announced Broadband2Go, a nationwide (U.S.) mobile broadband service offering prepaid, contract-free Internet access using the Sprint data network.
To use Broadband2Go, you must first purchase a Virgin Mobile-branded USB modem built by Novatel Wireless. Currently, the compact $150 modem is sold by Best Buy.
You have four Virgin Mobile USA service plans from which to choose:
100MB of data for $10 (which expires in 10 days)
250MB for $20 (expires in 30 days)
600MB for $40 (expires in 30 days)
1GB for $60 (expires in 30 days)
Broadband2Go isn’t the only pay-as-you-go 3G option. Other 3G mobile broadband plans require a one- or two-year commitment and cost $40 per month and up. For example, Novatel Wireless’s MiFi device is available from Sprint and Verizon Wireless. If you pay full price for the MiFi ($400), you can then pay $15 per day for unlimited use, with no contract. Otherwise, you must agree to a contract and a monthly data plan ($40 monthly for up to 250BM and $60 monthly for up to 5GB).The Setup: Do Try This at Home
I received a review unit of the Novatel Broadband2Go modem, along with coupons for using the service, the morning before leaving for Harmony Ridge Lodge, a handsome retreat in the Sierra foothills outside Nevada City, California. Having been to Harmony Ridge Lodge many times before, I know that Wi-Fi connectivity isn’t widespread across the property and cell phone coverage can be spotty. (The idea is to get away from it all, you see.)
You’re supposed to plug the modem into a USB port, follow a few on-screen prompts, and then you’re online. But my netbook didn’t recognize the modem and asked me to find the software driver for it. So I called Virgin Mobile’s toll-free tech support line. A representative suggested I pop the modem out, wait 30 seconds, and pop it back in. That did the trick, installing both the modem’s driver and the Broadband2Go software utility, which you use to connect and disconnect from the 3G data network.
By the way, in both instances, I found the Broadband2Go tech support representatives helpful, knowledgeable, and friendly.The Connections
Back home in San Francisco, I found an unexpected use for Broadband2Go when I took my partner to a hospital (for a minor back injury) to be X-rayed. We were there for hours, and I was on deadline. There were only two Wi-Fi hotspots in the waiting area, both password-protected. I used the Broadband2Go modem and service to get online, so I could get my work done while we waited. The connection was stable and reasonably fast. Later, I used Broadband2Go at home and at a few other spots in San Francisco–including Ocean Beach on a beautiful day–without any difficulty and with good speeds and reliable connections.The Wrap Up
Aside from a more complicated install than I had expected, my only complaint about the Broadband2Go service is the 10-to-30 day expirations tied to Virgin Mobile USA’s plans. Why not give customers 90 days (or longer) to use up their data plans?Mobile Computing News, Reviews, & Tips
What Will Chrome Mean for Road Warriors? Google recently announced it’s working on the Chrome OS. Among Chrome OS’s promises are fast bootup time and strong security, two potential benefits of particular importance to mobile professionals.
Review: HTC Touch Pro 2 HTC’s new unlocked Touch Pro 2 smartphone ($800) is pricey and, like many Windows Mobile smartphones, pokey when launching apps or scrolling through contacts. But it’s a nice change from your typical smartphone and has a clean, modern look.
How Much Does It Cost to Own a Smartphone? Smartphones such as Apple’s iPhone 3G, which is now only $99, may seem like a good deal up front–but the costs can quickly add up. We did the math, and we discovered that the total cost of ownership over the life of a 2-year contract for a 16GB iPhone 3GS was $159.82 per month, or $3,835.75.Suggestion Box

4G: What does this really mean?
Texas resident, Keith Geissler, contacted the Better Business Bureau when he found that his ATRIX 4G was only pushing around 300kbps up the tube instead of the expected 5.5mbps.
The ATRIX is a HSUPA-capable device, and we currently are performing the testing and preparations necessary to ensure that, when we turn this feature on, you will continue to have a world class experience.
AT&T hasn’t quite gotten their act together as quick as they had hoped with this one. Sometimes the real answer is that these systems are technically the bleeding edge, and it’s not some conspiracy to keep you from achieving your top speeds on the wireless internet. Here’s a little help discerning the technical specs from behind the marketing malarkey surrounding the wireless broadband available on the market.3G, 4G, LTE, HSPA, WiMax
I could go into a Wikipedia-esque discussion of all of the various mobile data standards since the dawn of mobile data standards, but I’d rather not. I’m going to focus on disambiguation of a few of these key terms and let you know what you really need to know. If you haven’t heard of LTE, HSPA, or WiMax before, don’t be alarmed. They’re just protocols to govern wireless and mobile data transmission. They set standards so that your device can talk to any similarly equipped cellular tower
It makes it easier that these technologies are already cleanly divided along service provider lines. LTE has been deployed in the US by Verizon and MetroPCS. WiMax is the realm of Clearwire and Sprint. AT&TMo are known to use HSPA to provide their broadband. Of course these lines are shifting with the shakeups going on in the market, but that’s how things are currently arrayed.
What is HSUPA? Does it make sense that it was turned off? Should we clamor for AT&T’s summary execution? HSUPA is a part of the HSPA (High Speed Packet Access) wireless telecommunications protocol. It’s the part that lets you upload quickly. The HSUPA (The U stands for Uplink) works along side HSDPA (Downlink) to provide the whole protocol, HSPA. Get it? Really, the fact that this portion of the system was delayed is not really a surprise to anyone who has ever imagined the amount of real infrastructure that goes into producing the end-user-experience we expect. Honestly, whenever a telcom rolls out an upgrade project of this magnitude, it’s hilarious if anyone doesn’t expect delays in something. HSUPA was where the slack had to be this time, no big deal. Hey, AT&T, just let us know what the deal is before we have to go to the Better Business Bureau.
What’s up with all of these G’s? How many G’s do I need again?
The G designation on all of these various technologies is a generational marker by the International Telecommunications Union (ITU). Most smartphone users are more than happy with their current 3G connection. It allows for mobile e-mail browsing, web-surfing, and some amount of streaming video. I’ve enjoyed Netflix on my iPhone with no hiccups. With all that the 3G is able to deliver, it’s still all about the 4G. Or if you’re not into the whole brevity thing, the 4th Generation of Mobile Telephony Standards. None of the technologies available on the market can currently hang with the ITU’s 4G requirements. The ITU set “peak speed requirements for 4G service at 100 Megabits per second for high mobility communication (such as from trains and cars) and 1 Gbps for low mobility communication (such as pedestrians and stationary users).”
LTE vs WiMax vs HSPA
WiMax and LTE are standards that come from different organizational origins. WiMax comes from the side of the IEEE, known for bringing you the collection of standards we dub Wi-Fi. This standard Wi-Fi connection is governed by a set of protocols collectively known as 802.11. WiMax is governed by a set of protocols collectively known as 802.16. LTE is a product of the Third Generation Partnership Project (3GPP), spawned from the international GSM standard. “Work on LTE has been going on since 2004, building on the GSM/UMTS family of standards that dates from 1990”
My friend, Robert Evans, recently sang of the death of WiMax. The standard has had a good run of it since they’ve had NTT DoCoMo of Japan coming after it since 2004. What? You don’t remember when NTT DoCoMo called for LTE or Long Term Evolution, to become the international standard for wireless communication? Neither did I. Even with six years in the making, the long term goals of LTE have not yet been made manifest, as the standard is still considered to be a third generation communication technology as it’s currently deployed. Full fourth generation wireless transmissions will be coming out this year with specifications like the LTE Advanced.
We will continue to see increased transmission speeds and decreased latency via wireless over the next few years, regardless of the protocol in which the packets are scribed.

EE reveals 4G pricing: UK LTE from £36/mo
New UK 4G carrier EE has revealed its LTE plans, with a variety of phone and mobile broadband packages as well as some added bonuses each month for subscribers. For regular users, EE will offer monthly plans with unlimited calls and texts, and 500MB of data, for £36 per month; there’ll also be 1GB, 3GB, 5GB, and 8GB packages for £41-£56. Meanwhile, mobile broadband is priced from £15.99 per month for 2GB. Full pricing and details after the cut.
EE’s consumer plans are based on a 24-month contract; if you’d rather go for a 12-month contract, it will cost an extra £10 per month. All subscribers get access to BT WiFi hotspots in addition to their mobile data allowance; if you run out of mobile data, you can add on more directly from the phone, priced at 50MB for £3, 500MB for £6, 2GB for £15, and 4GB for £20. Users will get an alert on their phone when they’ve used up 80-percent of their monthly allowance, and both tethering and VoIP use are permitted.
12-month SIM-only plans – useful if you’ve bought an unlocked iPhone 5 from the Apple Store – will be available from November 9. They’re priced at £15 per month cheaper than the 24-month plans, too, kicking off at £21. If you want a 30-day rolling agreement, that’s also available SIM-free, though you only get £5 per month off the contract pricing.
As for mobile broadband, EE will offer both a USB dongle and a mobile hotspot (which supports up to five WiFi-tethered devices), with 18-month plans. For consumers, they kick off at £15.99 for 2GB per month, rising to £20.99 for 3GB, and £25.99 for 5GB:
If you’re already a T-Mobile UK or Orange subscriber, there are a few routes to transition over to EE. If you joined in the last six months, you can pay a one-off fee of £99 to upgrade a Galaxy S III, iPhone 4S, or HTC One X to a 4G handset and new, 24-month EE agreement. If you buy a 4G handset outright, meanwhile, you can switch over to a new, 24-month EE agreement at no extra cost. Finally, if you’re more than six months into a T-Mobile or Orange agreement, EE will discount the costs involved in jumping to a 4G contract with the new network.
New 24-month EE smartphone prices per consumer tariff:
Subscribers will get access to one free EE Film rental per week, in a promotion running up to the end of February 2013, which can be accessed on a smartphone, or via a PC/Mac; if your device has an HDMI output, you’ll be able to watch it on your TV, too. Downloading that film over 4G won’t count against your monthly data allowance – useful, given each 720p movie comes in at around 750MB, EE tells us – though that might change after the initial promotion ends at the end of Q1 2013. EE says it hopes to continue the scheme, in some form, but that it hasn’t decided exactly how it will work. 2-for-1 cinema tickets will also be offered to subscribers each Wednesday.
