Phone fails to switch between 1X/3G/4G while streaming

Hi,

Samsung Galaxy Nexus running ICS 4.0.4, Verizon.

I noticed that if you start streaming on 1X, the phone never switches to 3G/4G. Or if you start streaming on 3G, it would never switch to 4G. However, if the speed goes down a level , it will drop for let's sat 4G to 3G. I don't have this problem when the app is not streaming. It seems to get stuck on the speed the stream was started and it won't let the phone go up a level even though coverage is available.

Thanks.

We have done a lot of testing and research. The main issue seems to be with Android OS radio drivers. This is something we are unable to resolve on our side. Newer versions of Android seem to have improved in regards to this issue.

This is an interesting issue.  It seems that as a way to not interrupt the connection the device is keeping it's connection.  I'll check if somehow we can get the available network type and see if we can force it to switch.  Thanks for the info!

Are you still having this issue with the latest release of XiiaLive?

Hey sorry to bump this from 2 years ago.  I have a Sony z2 with the same issues.  I wonder if you can add a option to stream the data in time blocks because the handset won't switch back to 4G whilst streaming.  If it could have a 10 sec pause once a min it would switch back! 
Hi, There is the same problem i Sweden. I ask the head of mobile network Tele 2 in Sweden and here is his answer: 

Google Translate:

Existing 3G-4G handover while streaming, so this function is not the suppliers of mobile networks than (Ericsson Tele2/Telias) networks, planned for this function to get the fall 2015.
