    4G and 3G are the same thing on the Nexus 4. Do you mean force the phone onto 2g EDGE to get a better signal?

    To go to 2G only, go to settings>"more" under wireless&networks>Mobile networks and check "Use only 2G networks"

    I believe it will only connect to 2g if 3g is not available. So it would have been a bit of a pointless option to have.

    Question Re: Settings for 3g only on Nexus 4

    when the option is available in hidden settings why cant we have that option saved permanently ? the options is available in my Samsung Galaxy S3 but can find that on my Nexus 4.
