Force Droid RAZR HD to Use HSPA+ on Non-Verizon Networks & Disable Fast Dormancy
Do you have an unlocked Motorola Droid RAZR HD on Verizon, and do you want to use on some other carrier? You would most likely be using it on one that offers HSPA+ instead of LTE, and doesn’t support fast dormancy. In such a situation, having LTE and fast dormancy enabled on the device would not just be pointless, but also a needless resource hog. That’s why XDA Senior Member pfak found a quick solution to disable LTE and fast dormancy on the device, and force it to use HSPA+ for data.

That said, you should see a noticeable improvement in performance on such carriers after you apply this hack.

When a friend or family member asks you for a phone recommendation, what do you say?
This month was a big one for Android 5.1.1 updates, as you can see from last week's roundup and the barrage of posts on the portal's front page in the recent past. So far we are seeing the lineup of Wear watches, the Nexus 4, Nexus 9, Nexus 10, Nexus Player, and a handfull of others slowly make their way to the latest Android. While waiting around for updates may be fine for casual users, this is XDA; we have OTA download links...
