    Still can't get it. Now i have another phone which i can force 3g. When i am at home, i make it as hotspot. Activate WiFi on my Lumia and every one at home they can enjoy Internet.

    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.

    Ok, I'll try to make it more simple. Note: you need Win8 with 64bit, or Win 7 (but also 64bit)
    1. Install the Windows Phone SDK or Arnold Vink's Lite SDK on your pc.
    2. Connect your phone to your PC, start "Windows Phone Developer Registration Tool"
    3. Click unlock, login with your live ID and follow the steps of it to unlock your phone (it's really simple)
    4. download the native toast launcher from [XAP][SOURCE] Native Toast Notification Launcher - xda-developers
    5. Open "Application Deployment" on your pc. select the native toast launcher cap, click deploy
    6. start native toast launcher on your phone, paste "app://2377fe1b-c10f-47da-92f3-fc517345a3c0/_default#/Launcher;component/MainPage.xaml?DialString=3282"
    7. launch the toast notification and click the toast, it will open field manager.

    You cannot force windows phone to use 3g only like android but there is a little trick which switches your network from 2g to 3g when 3g network is available. It has been tested in Lumia 520 and 525 running windows 8.1 denim in India all you have to do is set your highest connection speed to 3g and go to dialer and dial ##3282 and call and when the network provider starts saying this is not a valid number quickly minimise the call window and open settings >cellular+sim >sim settings you'll see highest connection speed and network selection will be greyed out you should do these steps before the call ends wait for the call to end itself and you'll see your network switched from 2g to 3g. You can do this again and again.
    Hey there! I was wondering if it's possible to force my Lumia 920 to use 3G only if it's available. My problem concerns situations when there are both 2G and 3G connections available and 3G signal is not so strong while 2G is much stronger, so phone prefers taking 2G signal, which means not been able to use internet at all. It also takes battery life when the phone is constantly switcing between 2G and 3G. I experience this issue a lot on some areas I visit a lot. For instance there are several places where there are these 2G amplifier towers nearby, which leads to no 3G-connection. This is annoying problem and I would like to solve it.
