How to Force 3G (WCDMA only) or 4G (LTE only) Mode on Your Smartphone

One of the most annoying thing I’ve ever witness is network switching
from 4G to 2G and you know what that means when its on 2G… I know some of you
are having this issue, despite the facts that you have strong 3G in your
location and your device supports 3G but you are constantly on 2G which is can
be so annoying.

But there is a way you can force 3G WCDMA or 4G LTE only
permanently on your smartphone. The only downside is that if you are in a
location where 4G or 3G isn’t supported, you may not have network coverage.
These two codes below will work the wonders but may not be
applicable on all smartphones.
1. *#*#4636#*#*
2. *#*#2846579#*#*
The first code worked perfectly well for me on my Xiaomi Redmi Note 4
How Can I use the First Option?
1. Type *#*#4636#*#* using your dialer and you should be
presented with a menu as seen below;
2. Click on Phone information (If your phone supports dual
sim, phone information 1 is for sim 1 while phone information 2 is for sim 2)
3. Scroll down  until
you see a drop down menu where you can choose WCDMA only or LTE only
Once you select your option, go back and you are good to go.
How Can I Use Option 2?
1. Type *#*#2846579#*#* using your dialer and you should be
presented with a menu. Select ProjectMenu.
2. Choose Network setting>>Network Mode
3. Select 3G only or other wise and you are good to go
Option 3
In the case where the two codes above doesn’t work for you,
you can download the app. The app lets you dial the right code for your phone
model and then completes the 3G/4G only data mode.
Install it and complete the onscreen prompt.
Let’s know which options works best for you.

    • A very big difference bro. The network setting directly on phones in most cases doesn't set it to 3G only as it still returns back to 2G depending on network flunctuation

  1. Good tutorial. Or u can go to Googleplay and download 4G lte switch ot 4G only network mode. Open it scroll down and select lte only or wcdma only. Or select lte/wcdma. That's what am using.

  2. TO EVERYONE THAT WANT TO FORCED THE PHONE TO BE ON 3G OR 4GLTE REMEMBER IF THE 3G OR 4GLTE SIGNAL IS LOST IN YOUR AREA YOUR PHONE WILL NOT PICK ANY SIGNAL UNTIL THE LOST SIGNAL IS FOUND
