Posted January 11, 2010 by Rob Rogers in Android

1. Select Phone.

2. Dial the following:
*#*#4636#*#*

3. The Testing screen will appear.

4. Select Phone information.

5. Scroll down to Set preferred network type:

6. Select the dropdown (the current value should read WCDMA preferred).

7. Select WCDMA only.

8. Go back to the Home screen and wait for your phone to reconnect to the network.
