Questions and Answers

Why can't I change the network mode?

Hi, I can't change the network mode from GSM to WCDMA, if I click the WCDMA, it doesn't work, it will go back to GSM

You need to restart and then try again. If it continues to work that way, it is highly possible that the connection for WCDMA is not very good at that period of time, that's why it's going to GSM as a backup. You may want to retry after a few hours, when the connection has gotten back up.

This is because this is the setting that your device is currently working on at the time. It is best for you to stick with your current network settings so that your device will work appropriately. It is changing back because the device will only work on that network setting at this time as its default, if you need more information in regards to why this is happening please respond with your mobile device model for more help.

My Samsung S4 Korea copy is not getting network in India?

How can I solve this problem. I have used this phone out of India, please help!

If manual network selection does not work, you may want to bring your device to the service provider office. They will be able to tell you whether their network is only locked to particular devices. They can also inspect your phone to see whether it is the one causing restrictions in terms of which network it can actually attach to.

Not getting network in my Korean made S4?

It is possible that the SIM card you are using does not have coverage within the area or you are not in roaming (if you are traveling). If not, try sending your phone to check if there is a problem with your phone.

Can't change GSM to WCDMA PREFERRED on my phone IQ4400?

I bought a phone IQ4400, back to Kenya and can't change from 2G to 3G because its in GSM. I have tried dialing *#*#4636#*#* but didn't change. The phone is a 2G. Thanks. I have tried: Dialing #*#*4636*#*# and setting to WCDMA but gets back to GSM only. I think it was caused by: Maybe operator details. I'm using Airtel provider.

Galaxy Note4 ONLY CONNECTS TO 2G?

Hi, about two weeks ago, I woke up in the morning, only to notice that my phone has no cell reception, yet other devices around me have network service. I inserted another SIM card into the phone but still the same issue, but when I switched network mode, I got cell reception for 2G. These are the responses I get when I switch network modes:. . GSM/WCDMA = E. . WCDMA only = No service. . GSM only = E.. . I have inserted three other SIM cards from different carries here in Nigeria, done a factory reset and even had to downgrade from Android 5.0.1 to 4.4.2 and back to 5.0.1 (have never rooted the device or installed custom ROM) but the issue still persists. Please, what should I do as the issue is frustrating me already. Expecting to hear from you soon. Thank you.

I can't switch my network mode from GSM to LTE (MTK 6753)?

I am using a custom ROM from a Russian developer which seems to be offline for a while (CM 12.1) and I have the Elephone P6000 Pro. Both SIM-Cards are active but if I prefer SIM2 for mobile data, both can only use 2G Internet. If I prefer SIM1 for mobile data then SIM1 can use LTE and SIM2 cannot. He built it in the MTK Engineering Mode but it looks like being buggy, I can't access the Band Mode or Network Selection. *#*#4636#*#* also don't work because the combobox is greyed out and stuck with GSM (whether SIM1 or SIM2 preferred). I need an alternative to force using WCDMA or LTE... I also don't have as much time to wait until the developer responds.
