I alsohave a sprint service plan, it sucks but it works when it wants to. the issue with the 3g and 4g with sprint is this. wherever you friend is located and the towers that are around she will be able to get 4g signal, if not then the phone/ network will automaticaly go to 3g as a backup. this would explain why shecan still send and recieve txt and make calls still.
try going into system setting , under share and connect tap more then scroll down to mobile networks, she cant adjust the 4g settings because its automatic. She can then choose network mode and set it to to CDMA aka 3g. when she chooses this the phone will operate in 3g mode. The net will be a bit slower than 4g , but it'll work. now when she goes out of that dead zone into a area where 4g is available then she can repeat this process and switch back over.
LTE/CDMA is what the Sprint network is running on most of the time though. CDMA= 3g
CDMA+LTE= 3g and 4g switching automaticaly.
Connecting your AppleiPad to the internet is very simple. When you use a application that requires internet capabilities your iPad will do several things.
-The iPad will attempt to connect using the last Wi-Fi network you used that is available.
-If no network you previously used is available, the iPad will show a list of networks in range. You can then tap a network and if needed, enter a password to join the network. Any network with a locked Icon will require a password. These are secure networks.
-If no networks are available or if you don't choose one, the iPad will then connect over a cellular data network.
What is the difference between a cellular and Wi-Fi network? A Wi-Fi network is generally faster, but covers less of an area. Think of your home wireless network, or a wireless network at a library. It has limited range. A cellular network is generally slower but covers a larger area. Normally, if you are connected to a cellular network you will see a 3G icon or E icon at the top of your device. Also, you normally pay to use a cellular network.
To see all the Wi-Fi networks in range: From the Home screen, choose Settings > Wi-Fi. Tap a network to join it.
What you should know is that if you check your phone network settings, it's always on DUAL MODE which means it automatically access Edge and 3G which makes it difficult for the phone to have network on it whenever the area your are has limited network services.
All you have to do is goto Ctrl. Panel (Control Panel) ' Settings ' Scroll down' Click on Phone' Scroll down ' Click on Network ' Now Click on Network Mode ' You will see three types i.e Dual Mode, UMTS(3G), GSM Choose the GSM and immediately you will start having Full network on your phone again, you can follow the same process to switch back to either Dual Mode or UMTS(3G) - See more at: http://www.gistplanet.com/2012/02/solution-to-network-problemissue-on.html#sthash.VWEAxQ3V.dpuf
SETTING UP A BROADBAND CONNECTION (non dial-up connection)
First you need to decide what type of broadband and Internet service you require and these are - 1. DSL that uses your existing telephone line. 2. Cable that uses a cable service and can include a cable TV service. 3. A wireless 3G network uses the mobile/cell phone network and can be separate or combine with your cell phone account. This type of Internet connection uses an USB wireless device shaped like an USB memory stick. Note - Combined services generally offer discount pricing and may include a modem/wireless router.
If you use a wireless router with the DSL or Cable Internet service then your laptop with a wireless card can then connect to the Internet. You can also connect to a free WiFi hot spots like McDonalds, Star Bucks, the Airport etc. using the wireless card in your laptop. If you use the wireless 3G wireless broadband service, then you can access the Internet anywhere where your ISP has 3G wireless coverage. You need to check the service coverage area where you need Internet service. Once you decide what type of broadband your require, then you need to check with the various Internet Service providers to see if they can offer and the cost of the various plans. Note the download limits and the associated additional costs if you exceed the monthly download limits. Once you sign up with a Internet Service provider, their documentation will include setting up instructions and/or installation CD.
The Kindle is available in two versions 1)Enabled with Wi-Fi only version 2)Wi-Fi plus 3G version.
In the case of the 3G-enabled Kindle, you do not need to do anything to connect to the Internet. The Kindle automatically connects to Amazon's 3G Whispernet network whenever it is within the coverage area. No membership or subscription fees are required in this particular version.
For a Wi-Fi only Kindle, you must select and connect to a public or private wireless network to access the Internet. You'll need to use your home Wi-Fi network or another access point to complete the initial setup and buy books and selling on amazon.
But The Kindle DX is only capable of with the use of a 3G connection.
First check with your mobile provider if you are in a 3G covered area, the modem speed is the "maximum" speed that you can reach with it. The real speed is usually slower, and very much slower if you are working in a non 3G covered area.
AT&T doesn't have good 3G service. Often you may find that you do not have 3G reception, and the phone switches to EDGE. This is not a problem with the iPhone. I live in a metropolitan area, so I do not experience problems, since 3G coverage is good. However, when i travel around, often i go to EDGE as well. Like i said this is a problem with the network and not your phone.
One thing that could be possible is there is a program running that could be requesting information from the internet and rather than using the broadband it attempts to access with dial-up. One quick fix would be to go to Internet options and under the "Connections" tab uncheck the box that states Dial whenever..... and check the box that states Never dial a connection. I would use this setting when you use your broadband and when you are away traveling you can go back and check the box to Dial whenever.....
