    • LTE/CDMA


    Thanks!

    Out of these three would be 4G/LTE

    Agreed... I had mine set to Global but since changing it to 4G/LTE, I've been getting better reception and less band-hopping.

    I noticed my phone is on roaming ("R" next to signal bars) non-stop since switching to Oreo and 4G/LTE setting. Is this normal?

    Just picked up a essential phone today. I switched to this setting today. I'll see how it goes.

    Just got my PH-1 and using it on AT&T, as a phone, communication device, this phone is horrible, worst phone reception I've had on a phone in 8 years. Absolutely no signal indoors, and even when talking on it outside, because that's the only place it works, even then I'm sitting at an average - 115db, people tell me they can't make out what I'm saying, static, garbled sounding, text messages only come through about 20% of the time, phone doesn't ring when I call it, goes to voice mail, I tried every known AT&T APN, tried a new SIM card, but if I put my SIM card in any of my other non AT&T unlocked phones it works fine in my home, at work, in the basement of our building at work. Tried everything, factory reset, network settings reset, new SIM card. I like the phone nice build quality, nice software, current updates but it's useless as a communication device for phone calls and text messages.
    Oh, also Essential support is about as useless as this phone is now. The phone was bought new/sealed but I, unfortunately, bought it from a retailer on eBay, not an individual but a small company with an eBay store, so I saved a little money buying it there instead of Amazon but I'm probably going to lose $75 in return shipping and restock fee. Lesson learned I guess.

    Do the last person that posted If that same SIM card is working in other devices that are unlocked and they're working perfectly fine, then you have your answer it's issue with that specific phone. I do troubleshooting for another cellular Carrier and one step we would do is to make sure you try your SIM in another device and see if it works fine on sense yours does something is wrong with your phone either their configuration settings Or I'm not sure if it's device you brought with you to AT&T network.
