Preferred network type??

 

What's the preferred network option here ? I typed *#*#4636#*#* to get into this screen on my android phone.

Hi @zlez93 

 

It's a list of the networks your device can connect (locally and roaming). Although this isn't necessary accurate as it's a generic list Android can connect.

 

Thanks

Good Morning @zlez93.

 

Welcome to the EE Community.

 

What phone are you using?

 

Usually we'd recommend connecting to LTE/CDMA/UMTS auto unless there's a reason you're looking to change.

It doesn't matter which network the OP chooses on this screen, as it doesn't save and will default to programmed firmware network selection. 

 

Thanks

@zlez93   What that screen shows is the type of network connections that device has.  There is nothing you can do about changing the connection type as the device will pick the connection it needs so it can operate. It’s just a list and you don’t need to be accessing it.

Actually the screen you are seeing is preferred network type.

 

It actually is changing how the device is connecting to the network. 

 

I switched from 4g to 3g using it.
