    It doesn't show in the options on my Lumia 930 either.
    I don't think it is possible.
    Is there a reason why you are trying to change to 2G?

    I use 2G most of the time so I use less data and slower battery drain, especially for whatsapp

    According to gsmarena, it is supposed to have the 2G option

    check with your telcom whether your SIM is faulty or does not have 2G option

    I don't know why I didn't think of this before

    You've said you don't have 3G, that's fine. You can still select 3G option in the options and get 2G signal. The highest connection speed is just that, the highest it can go. So if you select 4G, your phone can get 4g or 3G or 2G depending on what is available. Similarly, if you select 3G it will select the highest that is available - either 3G or 2G.

    Since in your case 3G is not there at all, your connection speed will drop to 2G even if you have selected 3G
    So you can comfortably use the 3G connection speed. I know this from experience as I have sometimes selected 4G but I get 2G

    so if you select 3G, there's no signal at all for data?
