Is there a way to disable to the 4G in the Nokia Lumia 900 and use the 2G? I had an LG phone with 3G and got better coverage and signal bars on the 2G than I did on the 3G so I kept the phone on 2G. I don't use the internet on my Nokia ... I only use the phone for text messaging and phone calls... My 4G is only showing 2 bars on it's signal and sometimes maybe 3. I will have better signal on the 2G..
How do I change the phone to use 2G.. since I do not use the internet/email or other internet services on it.
I doubt if you can. I haven't see anything in the settings and diagnostic mode. So far I've seen the bars go to LTE, 4G and E.
It should be in
settings -> mobile network/cellular settings - > highest connection speed
However on some operator branded models, this option is hidden on demand of the operator.
I found the code to get into the area after a lot of digging online, but don't have a clue what to set it for... Right now, the phone is draining the battery too fast... trying to set things so it don't use so much battery juice. I don't use the internet on it and very seldom use it for email... I mainly use it for text messages and phone calls only...
I also have another question if you don't mind... how do you make sure what you are sending is SMS text and NOT the MMS messaging?? My son cannot open my MMS messages....(I didn't know the phone sent my message that way).. I want to be sure what I send is SMS text message only...
Why on earth did you buy a Lumia 900 if you only talk and text? You could've got yourself a basic Nokia that would've alsted a week on a single charge. it really doesn't make to much sense.
the only reason you would buy this phone is for the 4G LTE functions. Its all designed around high speed internet access... any other phone can access facebook. by the way because of the fact that the lumia 900 uses the 700mhz band for the LTE 4g option, it will get better penetration in to buildings and also a longer distance from the cell towers out in the country.
If you have poor reception, then you would be crasy to turn off the 4G. Really sounds like you boight the wrong phone for what you use it for.
