You might need to get the sim card replaced on the one showing 3g . Sim cards are free from any Verizon store or if you get it online. Just do not get one from a authorized dealer as they might charge you for it.
We definitely want your devices to be receiving the best signal possible. When did the other phone begin showing 3G? Does this happen everywhere you go or it is intermittent?
