    I got Nexus 5 shipped from US to India. It is currently loaded with Android Version 5.0.1 and Build No LRX22C. I am using Airtel SIM with a 3G data plan. The 'Preferred Network Type' in the settings is set to 3G. But the phone works only in 2G ie EDGE network

    You probably need to modify or create a new APN in the APN settings.

    From any Home screen, tap the Menu key.
    Tap Settings.
    Tap More.
    Tap Cellular networks.
    Tap Access Point Names.

    My guess is the signal connection. Sometimes this happened to me as well. I set 4G, but I can only get 2G or 3G when taking a subway.
