We have been seeing reports of users complaining about issues getting 3G data on your HTC Thunderbolt. The new HTC Thunderbolt is the first HTC 4G LTE device on Verizon’s LTE network. It sports a 1 GHz Snapdragon processor, hi-res 4.3-inch screen, 8 MP rear camera with 720P HD camcorder and 4G connectivity.
Users were reported saying that they were having issues getting 3G data with their HTC Thunderbolt when moving into a non-4G area. An Android Central user “landale”was smart enough to come up with a solution to this problem and shared his solution to fixing your HTC Thunderbolt’s 3G data problems. The solution is quite simple and you are not required to do a ‘hard reset’ which was recommended until recently. So don’t fret any longer, here’s what you need to do.
Go to the ThunderBolt’s phone dialer. Enter ##778# and hit Send. You’ll get a pop-up labeled EPST, with the choice to “View Mode” or “Edit Mode.” You want “Edit Mode.” You’ll be asked for a password. It’s 000000. Now flip down to “Modem Settings,” and then choose “Rev. A.” Change the setting from eHRPD to “Enable,” hit OK, then press the Menu button on the phone and tap “Commit Modifications.”
Your phone will reboot after the above inputs and it will continue to function normally as it should’ve been in the first place. But landale points out that you should revert back to the original settings once Verizon sorts out the issue with its network. We hope this gets your brand new Thunderbolt back in action.
