Re: Accidently Switched network radio band! need to revert, HELP please

you can't do that as that's hardware related not software, just repair your phone with SUS or PC Companion or factory reset

ok lets try this again lol

uninstall the app - but first clear it's data and cache in settings apps all and while you're there look for network location and clear it's data also

restart phone

if that doesn't sort the problem get back

Re: Accidently Switched network radio band! need to revert, HELP please

thanks for ur quick reply. regarding reset, i read on an xda page (http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1545218&nocache=1&z=2277467865496874) dat resetting didnt help.

and so much havoc caused by a simple tap?? is there simply no way other than a reset?

also i have already done what GeoffH said. but nothing happened.

i was thinking of using "LTE setting" to switch bands?? will it be useful?

you can see methods to backup your phone, if you reformat/factory reset your phone everything will be deleted even backups, but you can backup with google (sms, mms, call logs, contacts, don't worry about the apps)
