Hi, 

 

Try choosing a network manually. 

 

@Profile closed can probably help as he travels to the US. 

 

Thanks

Re: New york only 2g

@Purfleet You can roam using either AT&T or T-Mobile when in the USA and both should be able to provide 3G and 4G.

 

What handset are you using?

 

As @Northerner mentioned, try an manual network search and select either of those 2 from the list of available networks.

 

Generally, EE handsets will default to T-Mobile but you can also use AT&T which is generally better in big cities.

Hi all

 

One plus 3t

 

3g came up last night and speeds we're okay but back to edge now.

 

I tried to manually select at&t but it said that I can't register on the network

 

Cant understand why I can't get 4g in a city like new york

Re: New york only 2g

I don't think the European Oneplus 3T will work in the USA on 4G due the LTE bands the phone supports. Time to upgrade to the OnePlus 5?

Re: New york only 2g

A phone was made in 2016 that didn't support the us network?

 

3g will do, edge is unacceptable.

Re: New york only 2g

Back in the day when OnePlus phones were better value, they made different version, US, Europe/Asia and China. It meant cheaper hardware for each phone but they didn't work globally.

 

Now the price has been increased quite a lot, they have one version that works in most places.

 

 

Edge is a small step up from 2G, but may be the best you get with such an old phone! Robot Frustrated
