Just got the Tbolt and it will only connect at 1x speed. I have 4G and 3G in my area for sure. Please help.

What is the network mode type under mobile network in the phone settings?

Is this a brand new device?

What connection did you receive with your prior device?

Does this occur where ever you are?

No, this is not a brand new device. It is manufactured refurbished. With my prior device, which was a used Droid Razr Maxx, I received 4G lte with not hesitation and I have been in the same area for the last 3 months. I'm hoping the fact that it is refurbished is not the problem because I have read that others are having the same problem with a brand new device.

I had a TB for over 2 years and I never had a problem with 4G once it came to where I lived. My thought was the fact it may be a refurbished device and you answered that question.

Have you tried a master/factory reset?

Is this a new SIM card or the old one from your previous phone with an adapter?

It is a new SIM card, I got it direct from a Verizon Store.
