3G Network Extender Stuck On 1X Data

Please keep in mind I am very tech savy and have made every attempt to solve on my on.  I have the samsung 3g network extender and for the last 2-3 weeks the 3g on my phones(iphone 4 and now the iphone 4s) also brought in some droids and other 3g phones are only doing 1X data.  To eleminate my internet service provider I had a friend bring his over from his home and his showed the same thing after it went up.  This is a ongoing issue in my area as everyone I have spoken with that has one is showing 1X and we all have different internet service providers.  I have called in to the tech support and been promised it would be looked into and someone would call me back and never have I heard back from them.  Can anyone point me in the direction I need to take?

I too am having the same issue with my extender. I have also been able to rule out the isp by running line tests as the vzw tech support requests. I have spoken with the vzw network extender support team 3 times regarding this issue however the issue is still not solved. My extender worked wonderfully up until the end of september.
