ANDASH62, I apologize for any confusion in our questioning. You had previously mentioned that you are in a mixed 3G/4G area. As 3G is being phased out, some devices that previously utilized both speeds will no longer be able to rely on 3G as a backup. Without the 3G backup if the 4G signal is not strong enough the signal will drop. Does this help to provide clarity?
