So I got an unlocked "white box" Titan II from eBay. $279 shipped - good deal. Arrived yesterday, it's brand new.
I put my SIM in from my Galaxy Nexus (HSPA+ plan). Data didn't work at all. Went to the AT&T store, they gave me an LTE SIM, data still didn't work. The AT&T rep told me I didn't need an LTE plan, which I later discovered was false. Called up AT&T, gave them the SIM number and IMEI, specifically asked to be placed on the LTE plan. Data still didn't work. Ran HTC connections app, did absolutely nothing (no wonder the reviews are scathing). Rebooted and waited 30 minutes, data magically worked.
I use wifi at home like most everyone else on this planet. Connected fine and works most of the time.
The problem I'm having is regardless if I'm on wifi or 4G (no LTE here) the data connectivity seems to drop...as in I will be sitting here with full bars of either 4G or wifi and I'll, say, open up the market. The images in the market just won't load...it sits there. I end up setting the phone down out of frustration, pick it up a few minutes later, and magically the data starts working again.
It's very random and occurs on both wifi and 4G. It just seems the data connection isn't "holding" and works sometimes. It's not my wifi because my Macbook will be streaming away on wifi without issue (no it's not a capacity issue with my network).
Anyone else having sporadic data pauses? It's frustrating and I can't figure out the root cause. Have hard reset, etc. Same behavior.
