How to set WCDMA only on LG G Pro Lite

On LG G pro lite dual (and perhaps G pro lite single too) there's is no option to set the network into WCDMA only or 3G only.

If you go to Settings > Tethering & networks > Mobile networks > Network mode, you will only see two options Automatic and GSM only, there is no WCDMA only.

Don't worry, there is a solution for this, you still can set WCDMA only on your LG G pro lite. Here's how :
  • Dial *#*#4636#*#*
  • Testing menu will shows up, select "Phone information"
  • scroll down and see the "Set preferred network type", select "WCDMA only"
  • exit by pressing home button (don't press back button, just exit)

Now your LG G pro lite should be on WCDMA only, the signal indicator should shows H or H+ or perhaps 3G, but definitely not Edge or even GPRS.

You can also set WCDMA only on LG G pro lite using third party app, there are plenty on google play store and they're free apps.

Here's some of 2G-3G switcher apps :
And there are more you can find on google play store, but basically they works the same way.

    1. i also use data network on SIM 2, set the default data network on SIM 2 and then follow my instructions above, or you can try install app called "Switch network type 2G/3G" from google play and set WCDMA only using that app
