How to keep MOTO G Android phone on 3G only

Recently on my dual SIM Moto G running on android 5.0.2 Lollipop, I was having network problems, I could not make it stay on 3G network even though on the settings I selected 3G I kept getting 2G/EDGE.

The solution was simple, to force my Moto G phone to permanently stay on 3G/H/H+ and only takes a few steps.


How to forcefully select 3G/H/H+ network on Moto G android Phone

  1. On the phone settings (settings>more>cellular networks>preferred network type) select 3G.
  2. Now dial *#*#4636#*#* a window will pop up on the screen
  3. Select Phone Information
  4. Look for GSM auto (PRL) and on it select WCDMA only.

This little step will get your phone to stay permanently on 3G network.
