    I have an HTC one m8 and I'm having a weird issue when it comes to 4g.

    Basically unless I force lte only it won't use 4g and will instead stay on 3g. I know for a fact that I can force 4g only and it connects fine so the signal is there but I can't text or make phone calls when in this mode.

    I'm gonna mess with some new roms and see of that makes a difference unless someone else has another idea.

    Thats because 4G is only for data, when you call it needs 3G

    3 bars usually. I think it might be something with the way the rom setup the radio.
