I have had this Nexus since December 27th and have not been able to connect to 3G since then. I either get 4G or 1X and the 3G where I live is super fast and always full bars. So, is this something that would be covered under the warranty? I would think so since if there is no 4G where ever I go, I'd really like to NOT be stuck in 1X...super slow.
What have you tried? Have you put the phone in 3G only network mode? Turned on the data roaming? Toggled airplane mode?
Also where are you located in the country? General area of a city would work that way the others hare can compare with the coverage map what you should have for that area.
I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.
