This is a fairly simple process on Android and Symbian phones. But, how do you switch to 2G from 3G and vice versa on a Windows Phone like the Samsung Omnia W i8350 (Samsung Focus Flash in the USA)? Can you even toggle? Fortunately, the answer is YES!
However, there is no readily available graphical interface that will allow you to do this task.
- Open the phone dialer
- Punch in ##3282# – you will enter debug mode
- Touch the ‘…’ at the bottom of the screen and click on ‘settings’
- Now you should be able to touch and select either 2G or 3G, or leave it at ‘automatic’
I have selected automatic as the 3G signal inside my workplace is pathetic – draining battery juice. This ‘automatic’ setting is very similar to the Android’s/Symbian’s ‘GSM/WCDMA’ selection.
