Ok So I THINK I understand the spectrum lables... I just never had a phone that didnt display "Switch to 2g only" or "Switch to 3g only" or "Switch to 2g or 3g auto". So... with that in mind:
How do you switch to 3g only on this phone? The 2g is way to slow (showed up as E on my motorola smartphones or is that 3g?) and I think the 4g where I live is way to buggy/slow/bogged down... you name it.
I've been trying to get 2G only (for battery preservation reasons), and my One S only lets me select between "WCDMA only" (ie 3G connection only) and "GSM / WCDMA auto". I have no "GSM only" to use a 2G connection only. Any ideas?
If it assists, I'm in the UK and on the 3 network.
When it doesn't say 4G it says 2G, never 3G. And I can't get any data when it says 2G, so I believe it is truly 2G. Quite disappointing that it doesn't go to 3G since 2G is useless.
I'm in the same boat as you, since I live on an island I mostly only get 2g reception when on my windows phone (HD7) I get 3G, I love everything else about this phone it just sucks when my data is almost none existent when 4G or wifi is not available.
