Check to make sure that the 4g is configured properly on your phone first. I don't know your phone, but even if you toggled airplane mode nothing would have changed if 4g wasn't enabled to begin with. If that doesn't work, try contacting your carrier.

I have a nokia 2720 fold mobile phone. My provider has been using the 2G network. It is now changing to 3g and has told me that I need to buy a new phone. Can it work on the 3g network?


Treat yourself. You are missing out. My view is that it will work on a 3G network at 2G. When they go to LTE, (Long Term Evolution), you will need to change.

How do i get my 4g lte service to work better on my tmobile phone through my straight talk account


The roll-out of 4G service, like any other type of newer service, will have its issues. It is important to know that when you buy the phone and the plan that you are sure that the provider actually has that level of service in your area. They are not required to tell you that at your address, for example, there is no 4G service yet. They will argue that you could be using the phone for travel, business, or whatever, and besides, it is backwards compatible to 3G service...etc.etc.etc. I had a 3G phone that I couldn't get signal on for over a year until 3G came to my city. Even then, until they get enough bandwidth to cover the demand, the speeds can be very slow at first since there are many people trying to use a limited amount of bandwidth. The providers only bring the infrastructure to a region when the region has enough users to warrant the cost. Thus there are many users holding hardware that doesn't yet work waiting for the capability to arrive. The providers won't spend the cash on services that aren't going to be fully utilized. It's not cost effective for them and they would rather you be mad and have to wait for them.

Samsung s4 I deleted the apn on accident how can I get them back


Every carrier uses its own APN Settings to get its 3G/4G LTE network working on an Android smartphone or tablet device. Now, these APN settings are usually "downloaded" automatically to your phone when you insert a SIM card. BUT, there are times where the APN are not selected automatically OR when the APN settings are not downloaded.
In those instances, your 3G/4G LTE data will not work but that can easily be fixed.
Step 1. First, browse your Settings menu and find the "Access Point Names" menu. This is usually under "Mobile Network Settings" or "More Mobile Networks" or "Mobile Networks" under Settings menu depending on the Android device used.

Step 2. Once you are in the APN Settings menu, first thing you should check it that the APN is on the correct one. If the correct APN is not checked (sometimes this happens), simply check ON the correct APN for your carrier. That will make your 3G/4G LTE data working right away.
Step 3. There are also times where the wrong APN is listed or there's simply no APNs listed. In these rare cases, you can simply add a new APN, hit the "+" button. 25264381-evzu5111kn4ie1titkzzffdn-4-2.jpg
Step 4. For APN setting, the "Name" can be anything. "APN" setting is the most important, usually you only have to fill this out for your phone to work.

Step 6. Hit "Save" when done.

Step 7. Next, make sure to select the new APN Setting you have saved. Within 5-30 seconds, your phone should start picking up 3G or 4G LTE signals and your data should be working again on the phon 25264381-evzu5111kn4ie1titkzzffdn-4-14.jpg

Can i get AT&T Z10 BlackBerry with a SIM card unlocked and use it on Verizon service with a Verizon SIM card


I don't think so....it does not support CDMA.So once you have unlocked you can swap with other GSM providers only.There are many unlock providers like Prounlocking.com to unlock your phone permanently.

LG Mach LS860 won't connect to 4G


I alsohave a sprint service plan, it sucks but it works when it wants to. the issue with the 3g and 4g with sprint is this. wherever you friend is located and the towers that are around she will be able to get 4g signal, if not then the phone/ network will automaticaly go to 3g as a backup. this would explain why shecan still send and recieve txt and make calls still.

try going into system setting , under share and connect tap more then scroll down to mobile networks, she cant adjust the 4g settings because its automatic. She can then choose network mode and set it to to CDMA aka 3g. when she chooses this the phone will operate in 3g mode. The net will be a bit slower than 4g , but it'll work. now when she goes out of that dead zone into a area where 4g is available then she can repeat this process and switch back over.

LTE/CDMA is what the Sprint network is running on most of the time though. CDMA= 3g
LTE=4g
CDMA+LTE= 3g and 4g switching automaticaly.

good luck

You may need to upgrade to a newer sim card. There have been changes recently, esp. with the broader adoption of, and newer versions of LTE. LTE is a whole different radio system than 3g or even 4g. (It is actually 3g on super steroids) I think a sim upgrade should fix the problem.
