I got my LG Revo on the 8th of July and have enjoyed the 4G connectivity when I am in a 4G area. However, I live in a 3G ONLY area which is where I spend most of my time. While at home using 3G, I have problems using various apps. I've tried cycling the 3G data connection using various methods including, turning on and off data, roaming, CDMA only, power off/on, airplane mode off/on.
-Google Reader (and any other RSS reader in the market) does not sync on 3G. I get "no connection, retry" every single time I access the app.
-When Google Reader syncs in a 4G area and allows feed to be read in 3G only area, clicking on a link in a story that takes me to stock browser will cause the browser to either take over 5+ minutes to load or time out completely with nothing loaded on the screen. But using stock browser by directly tapping browser app icon functions normally in a 3G connection with random web pages loading slowly.
-Google+ gives error that no connection to google servers could be established.
-the stock weather widget does not update and gives a "no connection" error
-a location based game in a 3G area, the great land grab, loads the google map very slowly over 2 to 3 minutes, where as on my Motorola Droid, it would load in less than 30 seconds.
-Facebook for Android sometimes does not update, I usually have to force update by switching between 'most recent' and 'top news'.
-not pushing email
My wife's Charge maintains a constant 3G connection and she does not have the same issues as me. Additionally, we use a mifi as our main source of internet connection for out home network computers/printers. The mifi is always on 3G and maintains connection. Connecting LG Revo using wifi to the mifi will allow me to sync my feed, but using only 3G will not.
Other issues I've had with the LG Revo was not receiving some phone calls for about 4 days and having about 8 to 10 random reboots...with the last being on Sunday. I've reset the phone back to factory condition once already and have not had any more reboots, but the 3G connectivity is still an issue.
Anyone else have any similar 3G connectivty issues? Any solutions anyone else has tried?
