    Default nexus 5 preferred network type

    I have an unusual issue with my nexus 5. I am currently on sprint and whenever I restart my phone my "preferred network type" changes to global instead of the LTE (recommended) I had it set to before the reset. Is there any way to prevent this from happening? Is anyone else having this issue? Thanks for your help

    Call Sprint to correct this problem. I had the same problem when I got my Nexus 5, and Sprint was able to re-provision the phone on their system (or something like that!), and that corrected the issue. Apparently it is a problem they're aware of with regards to Nexus 5's on their network.

    Did calling Sprint work? My Nexus 5 changes from LTE to global on its own.
