    Default Since 4.3 jelly bean update, I can't force GSM/2G anymore! It's impossible to disable WCDMA

    Which is really annoying because I often found that it was useful to force GSM because several of my phones (including my current HTC One) favour a weak WCDMA connection over a strong GSM, which is pointless when all I want is a phone conversation with a good line!

    Any idea around this? Really kinda loathing this update... an unwelcome change that hasn't really brought me anything good that I've noticed.
    Also since this update, I've been really missing being able to unlock the phone just by pressing the button (swiping the screen feels pointless on the HTC One and is slower when I want to frequently just check my location of Maps or something)

    Thanks for any workarounds or thoughts!

    I agree with you, every android manufacturer should enable:

    - automatic network 2g/3g/4g
    - 2g only
    - 3g only
    - 4g only

    It's a must!!

    Apparently i can't find a workarounds too.

    Go to the dialer then type

    *#*#4636#*#*
    This will open a menu and allow you to adjust those settings.
