    Default Only 3G at Moto G

    Hello fellows...


    I got a Motorola G and im having problem using data.
    I want to use only 3G, there is only option to use only 2g, there is a way to do this ?
    Should not have the choice to only use 3g also?


    Thank you

    Welcome to the forums.
    3G can come in many names, HSPA, CDMA. Do you have either of those?

    No one.

    My mobile network options are:
    Data enabled
    Data Roaming
    Access point names
    Use only 2G network
    Network operators


    Thank you for answer.

    I'm not an expert but think that if you do not select 'use only 2G' to limit access speed then your phone will automatically find/use the fastest network to get data - 3G where possible. If there is no 3G in a particular area you cannot force phone to connect to 3G

    My last phone i was using the code *#*#4636#*#* and putting "WCDMA Only", in the same place that im trying to use ONLY 3G in my Moto G, but i didnt find the option yet.
    I have read that they removed this code *#*#... from android 4.3.
    The network oscillates between 3g and 2g, thats my problem, i need to use ONLY 3G cos 2g here is too slow.

    I am also facing the same problem. Not able to stream youtube video using 3g connection while at the same point using the same operator, samsung galaxy s is able to stream the video. Is this a common issue ? Any one has fixed it? My moto g is still in android 4.3.

    Thanks.

    It only changes to 2G when it cannot find a good 3G connection so that you at least have some connection. If you manage to set it only to use 3G then when it cannot find a 3G signal you will lose all connection. I think it better leave well alone as a slow connection is still faster than no connection..

    Only SIM 2 gives 3G Access for now. Use SIM 2 & select Preferred Network Mode - 3G. I am also having the same situation. So, for now SIM 1 has 2G option default locked & not active for modification.
