    We want this option, "Slot 1 network." We can of course, use "Slot 2 network," depending on where the SIM card is, depending on which one we are using.
    If we have dual SIM activated. Make sure we choose the right one.

    Then we have the option to "Search networks." "Search for all available networks." Press down on this option.
    Now it's going to search for all available networks. The reason we may do this, especially if we are traveling using Data Roaming, this option gives us the option to find different Network Operators. Some may have lower prices. If we know their rates or their tariffs then we'll be able to choose the operator that is best for us. Not just the one that the phone automatically connects to when we are traveling, or when we are using Data Roaming, or another network provider.

    We can see then, that it has brought up all our available networks.
    GCELL is the one we are currently connected to, that's why there's a star next to it. There are two others that we may also be able to connect to and this actually gives us the option to be able to select from different Network Providers and Network Operators. If we do want to choose one of these just press down on one of their names and that will allow us to try to connect to them. Some we may be able to connect to, and some maybe not, depending on our situations.
