    Few times now my phone has been stuck on 1X. Turn on Airplane mode for thirty seconds and it clears it up. Any ideas?

    Bump.

    Could this be an internal antenna problem?

    Good thinking bat man. More than likely is 1 bar. What was the question again? Oh yeah stuck on 1bar. Hmmmm not sure why to be honest other than carrier problems or bad reception area maybe. There's a few areas here in the UK that have terrible receptive areas, could just be like one of those. Try spinning around that's what we do here 😝

    My phone does that when I would remove my sim card a lot when testing stuff. Shutting it off and turning it back on solved it. If it is randomly happening take it to apple.

    No, the circle indicating I am in 1x data. If I turn on Airplane mode, then turn it off the phone goes back to 3G.

    I know exactly what your referring too.

    [​IMG]

    When you turn Airplane mode on, you kill the signal coming in on your phone, then when you cut it back on, it immediately searches for the signal again.

    I used to have to do this all the time. It was annoying, but it was mainly because I lived out in the boonies at the time. Sometimes it'd find the 3G signal after I pulled this trick, sometimes it wouldn't.

    It's a network issue though. It's not your device.

    It used to show up as 1X on CDMA phones. This person is probably a Verizon user and that's why they referred to it as 1X.
