You can select which network modes your mobile phone can use, eg. 3G or GSM. Your choice determines the data speeds you can achieve.


Find "Network mode"

  • Tap Network mode.

Select network mode
  • Tap LTE/GSM/WCDMA (auto connect), GSM/WCDMA (auto connect), GSM only or WCDMA only.
3G (UMTS) or 4G (LTE) enables you to achieve higher data speeds than when using 2G (GSM).
If you select LTE/GSM/WCDMA (auto connect), your mobile phone automatically switches between the three network modes provided you're within range of a 4G network.
If you select GSM/WCDMA (auto connect), your mobile phone automatically switches between the two network modes provided you're within range of a 3G network.
If you select GSM only, you can't achieve high data speeds.
If you select WCDMA only, your mobile phone can only connect to 3G networks.
