I have a 3G device but it seems only connect to 2G (G or E), what should I do?

Last Update date : 2014.09.01



Please go to Settings > More settings > Wireless & Networks > Mobile Networks > Network Mode

In the Network Mode, please select “Auto Mode”. This allows the phone to switch between 2G, 3G and 4G (if the device is 4G).
