Quick Fix To The HTC Thunderbolt 3G Issues


Many HTC Thunderbolt owners have been complaining about how their device isn’t doing it with Verizon’s 3G network. I think that issues like this are normal for any phone’s early adopters but rest assured an Android Central forum user “Landale”, said that after talking to a couple of Verizon techs was told that Verizon’s eHPRD 3G, which is a 3G network dedicated to the Thunderblolt alone which allows it to support data and voice at the same time, isn’t working right now.

He also went on recommending to not hard reset your HTC Thunderbolt and proposed this easy fix:

  • Dial ##778# and hit send
  • A pop-up window named EPST will show up giving you 2 choices: View Mode and Edit Mode. Pick: Edit Mode.
  • Enter the Password: 000000
  • Go down to Modem Settings and pick “Rev A
  • You’ll want to choose eHRPD and click OK, hit the menu button and then press “Commit Modifications.”

Voila! After your “Thundy” restarts, you should be good to go! Make sure to revert to the old settings later on when the 3HRPD issue is resolved.
