    1. I have an i337 rooted and rom'd ( Shostock2.1) & was looking for the option to control bands (LTE-4G/3G / 3G Only/ etc.)

    2. It appears that (at least) the S4 international version has a "network selection mode" option in
    . . . . settings / connections / more networks / Network Mode <== this menu option is in international version but not i337!

    3. My i377 does not seem to have that option in settings, or any other likely location. So, I am wondering if it has been removed by AT&T (likely), or did I miss something?

    4. If the AT&T i337 does not have network mode menu, does that mean there is no direct user control over band selection?

    Thank you in advance ! :-)

    on your dial pad
    *#*#4636#*#*
    Device information
    scroll down to: Set preferred network type
    LTE/GSM auto (PRL) this is where you set your option

    Thank you so much --this is a very helpful reply!
    I like the menu -- it delivers many functions -including selecting cell bands.
    The "Network Selection Mode" option that I was looking for seems to appear only on the International version --and it's less full featured than the keypad menu access.
    Thank you again for the phone code!

    why would you want to change the band.

    There are many locations that AT&T has not implemented LTE so receptions in those areas are weak. By changing the bands, OP would be able to access HSPA and a much better reception.

    would this work on a stock phone, i am not sure on rooting yet i had it on my gs3 and loved it but i went back to stock rom with (some options) so i might keep the gs4 the same just stock until i get bored again

    back when my gs3 was rooted i had 3g+ instead of 4g here in town and sadly enough 3g+ was faster

    Unfortunately it doesn't work if you are using the GE 4.2.2 ROM like I am. I loved using that menu when I was still running stock.

    i used that number that was posted, it didnt work for me, so i guess i will try it with the gs4 when i get it. if i can get 3g+ it would be great, since i jump between E and 4g when i was on a custom rom i got 3g+ where i lived and didnt have to worry about data speed

    so what is the name for 3g+ and can i get it on a stock phone no root as i dont plan on that yet

    ROMs based on international firmware do have a working network selection mode menu. I'm on Goldeneye 4.0 and use that from time to time.

    When I had the SGH-I717, I was able to toggle and force it to stay on HSPA only. This was the app that I was using, I have not chk if it still works since I no longer have that phone in my possession.

    I can access the band selection page, but everytime i try to select an LTE band, my phone refuses to accept it and defaults back to the previous selection.

    Any ideas before i try to root my phone?

    Thank you. I have an AT&T phone as well and I used the code you gave and the code worked. I still have to figure out how to get the data plan to be accepted though.

    How do I save the information once I have selected the network type? I have selected and enabled then turn off and restart the phone but it keeps returning to what it was before.
