If you check in the themes forums, you will probably find a custom theme that has the network displayed as 4G instead of H+
I remember seeing someone complain about their network no longer showing 4G and only showing H+ (or the other way around) after installing a custom theme in either a 9900 or 9860 theme forum. Possibly a 9810 or 9360 forum as well.
Other than that, as previously stated, it is determined by the carrier but can be overridden with a custom theme.

If you really want the 4G to show (yes it is cosmetic) you will have to downgrade to Mobilicity .378 build. It is the only build that I know of that showed it--and on their lastest build which is .746, it now shows the H+ instead. The 4G did look cool but did nothing for you. BTW, if you do downgrade that far to .378, the upside is that there is or at least was free hotspot connections. Not sure if that still applies. If you can't find the link and actually want to go back that far, I may have it stored somewhere and will be happy to post for you.

BlackBerry - Software Downloads 2
Here is another site that you should keep on hand. It has every carrier's updates and downloads anywhere in the world. Keep it on hand for when you need to upgrade to a new OS. These are the carriers official pages.
BlackBerry - Desktop & Device Software Download Sites for BlackBerry users - Canada
Last night, I attempted to downgrade to .378 from .861 using AppLoader. When the downgrade was successfully completed, I quickly rushed to my Mobile Networks to see any changes and to my pleasure, the network choices that are available for me are STILL H+, 2G, and H+/2G. No 4G.
Is there something I am not doing correctly? Do I need to completely wipe my device with BBSAK before installing the .378 build?

You don't need to completely wipe the device but you do need to delete/uninstall every OS on your PC that is loaded on or has been. Go to your start button on your PC and open it> go to control panel and click on programs (and features on W7) and find and UNINSTALL all of the OS's that are on there with the exception of the .378 from Mobilicity as you are going to be using that one. They are in alphabetical order.
Next if you haven't already downloaded "Vendelete.exe" to your PC, you need to and you can get it here if you haven't. VENDELETE+ - Search and delete Vendor.xml files
Next you should run Vendelete (its a dos file) to let it find and delete ALL of the Vendor.xml files that are hidden from every OS install on your computer---and be patient as it takes a while.
Finally reinstall the .378 released OS on your PC with AppLoader/Loader.exe (after you have closed vendelete) and then once it's completed, open your BBDM and do your restore from it.
My guess is one of three things are happening here.
#1, this is the answer above and once the other OS's are deleted and gone and the Vendor.xml files are gone, it will show up once you do a reboot (battery pull) after install.
#2) Mobilicity has changed it's download file and it no longer shows 4G as a possiblility.
#3) you are not in a 4G reception area and therefore it does not show the 4G for that reason (though you would think it would still show as an option).
It may be that Mobilicity simply did away with it on that download. But, I hope something works for you on this issue. It absolutely was on mine and my wife's 9810s when we used .378.
PS: Cut and past the short cut to "Vendelete" on your desktop and keep it in a folder along with the Loader File--BTW, are you using BBDM to install these OS's? If so, do not use it. Always install with the "Loader.exe" file.Good luck!
When I first loaded .378, the available mobile network connections for my 9810 are H+/2G/H+&2G. Does restarting through battery pull really make a difference?
Here are a list of things that I always do whenever I am upgrading/downgrading my software:
1) Go to Control Panel and delete OTHER OS's
2) Find my OS download file and Install.
3) Delete vendor.xml from AppLoader folder.
4) Install through Apploader
In most cases I do not even need to restore through BBDM, and I RARELY use BBDM whenever I'm upgrading. I only use it occasionally to back up data every now and then.
As far as the 4G reception: My friend's 9810 (though with AT&T carrier) sometimes has H+ option and sometimes has 4G option, depending on which OS he is using. So I would think that it should be available for mine as well (Rogers). Although I will give this a shot, fingers crossed.

I don't know what else it could be except that the carrier has taken the code off the OS. You have certainly done everything right--one thing is that there are several locations that the vendor.xml files can be hiding. Even in your recycle bin. I'd absolutely download the vendelete file program on your PC and use it when deleting these files. It takes a while but its like a virus search engine that looks everywhere for them. I've had it find 4 different ones on one download attempt. I often run it once a month even when not downloading--I know--over kill! LOL Good luck, I hope you figure it out and please post your findings.
