I have just changes smarthphone and it has updated to Android 8.1. It is a dual SIM phone as I roam a lot. Since the upgrade I only get a choice of 3G or 4G for my EE SIM. I used to be able to select 2g only. I need this as I am working in an area with very poor 3G and 4G coverage. The other SIM gets a choice of 2G, 3G, 2G/3G auto and 2G/3G/4G auto. My EE SIM used to get this but not with Android 8.1. I have tried the EE SIM in both slots and it's the same. I am currently in Spain. The other SIM is Movistar and gets the full choice in either slot. My EE SIM picks up Orange but drops connection very easily. I have tried forcing it to used Movistar (forbidden) but it wont connect. Same for Vodafone.
This is really annoying as I need to be able to force 2G only depending on where I am. Any suggestions? Many thanks.

Have you tried factory resetting your device?
Not much can be done if you cannot choose 2G only when roaming in EE.
