    I remember back then we could switch LTE off, for a while I don't think we ever needed to do that with good reception but now LTE coverage is not that great where we are. I see when signal drops to 4G we get full bars, LTE gets us 2 bars. Is it not possible to switch it of anymore?

    There should be a drop down menu in your network and connections.

    Yes. I don't use LTE because I don't get the best signal and it drains batter so I use 4G.
    Is it possible to switch LTE off in Z10 at all?-img_20150320_205609.png

    Depends on your carrier. AT&T is one that, for some unknown reason, does not let you set a lower mobile signal type. It's fixed to LTE... period.

    The phone will drop to 3G, or even Edge, should the signal drop low enough, but you can't set it to just 3G.

    On an AT&T phone, that page posted above has no drop-down options at all.

    I thought at least they would allow on sub-service like Cricket not even possible on that, even with 10.3.1 that they did not even release.

    Just go to your setting then network and settings. From there choice mobile network. Then choose 4G 3G. Or HSPA. Depends on what your carrier has labeled it

    That's the thing - look at my posted image above. AT&T does not give us any choice of network. There is no drop down to pick a network from.

    Search for how to get to engineering screen. You can turn it off from there.

    It all depends on your carrier. Verizon doesn't give you any options either.

    Not in the U.S. Carriers here chose to market their slightly faster 3G, or HSPA+ as "4G". Blame T-Mobile for that. AT&T just said "hey, we have HSPA+ too, so we'll call it 4G, also."

    We call it "Faux G"

    Once they got LTE, they just added LTE to the name since they were already advertising "4G" for a while prior to that. So, there you go.

    BTW, the rest of the world correctly calls HSPA+ "H+". But we don't get that.

    We even modify the software on the device to show LTE or 4G or 4g instead of showing what they are, they want to keep 4G there so much, they classify the speed with a capital G versus lower case g.

    I guess if you know enough programming you can get your phone to display LTE when it gets GPRS signal and fool everyone to think your phone has LTE.
