    I'm surprised there remain areas with 2G and 3G coverage-- the only coverage I get is 4G, and once in a while LTE...

    Yeah, In India we have LTE in only 4-5 cities, 3G in Tier-1 cities and 2G in rest.

    I leave my 822 on 2G until I actually need mobile web access, as I'm around Wifi 95% of the time. I'm usually at 50%, or more, battery life after 16 hours of moderate to heavy use.

    Nokia developers please listen to this thread. Nokia Lumia is useless in India without a stable 3G. I can use my Samsung galaxy without any trouble, locked to 3G.
    The basic function of a smartphone is neglected

    Will ##3282 or ##3283# works to force lumia 520 as i even lost 3g after updating it to amber, missing my 3g speed. And when i dialing ##3282 nothing showing up and even after dialing ##3282# it showing ''something went wrong, couldn't complete request''. So please give me lumia 520 code and help to solve my 3g problem

    I am not sure why would Microsoft be involved for this since its clearly on Nokia/carrier's discretion

    This issue of switching between 3g and 2g has been greatly reduced for me. I'm not sure what did it, there was a recent update for access point, that might be it.

    Though its not as flawless as it was at first, it much better now.

    if it's disabled for your device, you can always deploy "Native Toast Launcher", enter the uri and it works. For more info, just check out the native toast launcher thread at xda, I don't know if hot linking to other forums is allowed here..

    This looks complicated for normal users. Can't install windows phone power tool on my mobile. Not sure why Nokia and Microsoft make this complicated.

    Hello,
    I just received my new Lumia 1520. I previously had the Lumia 900 and it was a real pain the problem of signal auto switching between 2G-3G. Then I found out how to lock the band to 3G with the ##3282# Field Test.
    With the Lumia 1520 I am having the exact same problems with the auto switch between 2G-3G, the battery suffers, and the connection is unpredictable in the same exact place (problems I had before with L900, but fixed with ##3282#). Is there any way to have this test field, or similar functionality on the Lumia 1520? The regular setting of "Highest connection speed" in "mobile network" of "Settings" does not offer a solution. It should have "Lowest connection speed" or similar.
    Thanks in advance

    okay, step by step.
    1. download the WP8 SDK, install it (you need win8, if you don't have it, get arnoldvink's lite sdk: Arnold Vink's Personal Website)
    2. start the Windows Phone developer registration tool, unlock your phone with your live ID
    3. deploy Native Toast Launcher to your phone with the Application Deployment Tool
    get Native toast launcher here: [XAP][SOURCE] Native Toast Notification Launcher - xda-developers
    4. start the app, paste this code into the field: app://2377fe1b-c10f-47da-92f3-fc517345a3c0/_default#/Launcher;component/MainPage.xaml?DialString=3282
    5. launch the toast notification, and by clicking it, it'll open the field test menu. Do what you want with it, I don't know if it can damage your phone.. if the page is blank, your phone doesn't support locking the band from Nokia's side, if it works, it was the region/carrier blocking it.

    Thomas, those steps are for those who knows what they are doing. Some of us it just looks complicated, as we are not sure where to run those links. I.e in Desktop or in Mobile.
