Phone is stuck in 3G

I do not know what has happeed but my phone seems to have forgotten that it had 4G.  When I look at the system settings under Network type iy only shows 1x and 3G...  I can get 3-5 bars of 3G just about any where and I used to have decent 4G coverage everywhere but for the last week at least it has been in 3G all the time.  I have rebooted several times already with no changes.

Suggestions?  Thanks

I have the same problem... I looked into the phone info page

by dialing

*#*#4636#*#*

and found that the phone has set itself into

CDMA auto (PRL)

there is a setting for

LTE/CDMA/EvDo

set it there..

and then it goe4s into 

NO DATA - and White Bars for phone

Reboot and the phone info returns to

CDMA auto (PRL)

Sure looks like a bug in ICS to me.. and lots of people are experiencing this.

I rebooted many times in the process of truing in fix this.  Pulled the battery and cards too...  Finally wound up calling in and they had to reset some settings on Verizon's end.  I am up and running again now.
