Xperia SP barely ever picks up 4G

Hi there,

 

My Xperia barely ever picks up 4G. Occassionally it will tell me that I have a new Facebook or Snapchat notification, but that's about all the 4G it gets.

 

I have made all the right changes to the connectivity settings my provider wants (and I doubt I would be able to even occassionally get 4G if my settings were wrong) and my SIM is not the issue (it picks up 4G perfectly in the two other 4G phones I've put it in). Also, other SIMs that pickup 4G fine in other phones don't seem to give me more than the occassional byte of 4G in my phone either, leading me to the conclusion my phone is to blame. Slightly frowning Face

 

Also, FYI I've had this phone for around 2 months now and the 4G has never worked properly.

 

Thanks in advance everyone!

EDIT: My phone is the Xperia SP C5303, so in theory Should be able to pickup LTE.

Hi "charlem" yes read the specs on the SP it is not a 4G phone it is strictly a the 3G for mobile data, yes I think we all either missed the fine print or took a chance , Slightly frowning Face sorry....

Re: Xperia SP barely ever picks up 4G

To clear things up...There are 3 Variant of Xperia SP the first one is the (C5302) which is a HSPA Variant of the SP Mostly released for country that doesn't have 4G such as India and Indonesia, 2nd (C5303) this Variant is for European, Asian and Middle East Country which supports Global LTE and Finally the (C5306) for the North America Version which supports a different band of LTE and Note that the (C5306) Variant is also available in Middle east Such as Iran and Dubai with a slightly higher price...whereas the Xperia SP (M35T) is a Dual-Sim Variant of the SP which is only available in Chinese market..different from the other 2 Variant (C5303) and (C5306) the (M35T) Only Supports TD-LTE unlike the other 2 which supports FDD-LTE...Hope this helps!!!!

Yeah, quite sure. I live inner-city and pickup 4G fine in other 4G-capable phones.

Cheers for the great long response, my phone is definitely the C5303 (sorry ,should have said that at the outset!) so it's not the particular version that's the issue I'm afraid.
