Thread: lost 3g
03-15-2011, 08:11 AM #1lost 3g
my verizon iphone option to toggle on 3g in settings magically vanished, and im no longer getting 3G? im confused, could it be a JB problem?

Have you tried rebooting?
03-15-2011, 08:57 AM #3
ya, i just restored it also and my phone wont even activate and get signal! Yours has the option to turn 3g on and off in settings right?
im getting 3g now, but do the verizon iphones have the option to turn 3g on and off in network settings

Yes I have the option to toggle 3G on and off whether in my settings or through sbsettings

i dont get how i could all of the sudden lose the option for 3g in my general network settings.

Did you install anything recently from Cydia?
03-15-2011, 09:22 AM #8
nothing recently, even after a complete restore it still isnt there in the network settings.

Do you happen to be restoring from back up?
03-15-2011, 09:33 AM #10
i did a restore and set up as a new iphone at first and it still would show the 3g option when i went to general, then network settings. then tried a restore from back up and still no luck
in network settings it only shows, cell data, data roaming, vpn, and wifi

The restore from back up is causing it. If you can't find the cause, you'll just have to not restore from back up if the toggle is necessary.

even when i dont restore from backup it still wont show up

So you are completely wiping the iphone and there is still no 3g option?
03-15-2011, 10:02 AM #18
on your verizon Iphone, what does it say when you go into setting, general, and then network?
03-15-2011, 10:03 AM #19
