    For those users that have been using their new HTC Thunderbolt's as a WiFi hotspot for their tablets, you may have noticed something missing this morning. It appears there is a nationwide outage of the 4g Network.

    Until Verizon gets it fixed you can either a) Use WiFi on your T-Bolt; b) connect at 1x speeds; or c) do the following fix to enable 3g until the system is back online. Note however that you will need to reverse these changes probably when 4g is back.

    How to Fix 4G Outage on HTC Thunderbolt

    Dial ##778#
    Press Call button
    The password is 000000
    Choose Edit Mode
    Go to Modem Settings
    Choose Rev A
    Switch from eHRPD to Enable
    Press OK
    Commit Modifications

    --thanks again to the folks over at xda!

    ##Edit: Here is another option. Install Network by Phillip Mangelow from the Market. Allow you to select CDMA(PRL) which will switch you to 3G.

    If you make the switch over to the 3G network, how do you return to the 4G?

    Thanks
