In case you didn’t know, your Samsung Galaxy S9 can use several different types of Internet connection. But from all its options, the LTE is the fastest and most reliable, also known as the 4G. Since your phone’s purpose is to give you the best possible experience, it will constantly seek for the LTE network, whenever available.
If, for whatever reasons, you don’t want to use this one and you prefer to connect to a slower network, you will first have to disable LTE on Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus. And that’s what we’re aiming to show you today – how to overstep this factory configuration that dictates the device to always go for the LTE…
Do You Want To Disable LTE Galaxy S9 And Galaxy S9 Plus?
- Access the Home Screen;
- Extend the general menu;
- Open the Settings;
- Go to Connections;
- Select Mobile networks;
- Select Network mode;
- Choose the type of network you’d like to use, from the options listed in there.
That’s pretty much all there is to know about this particular Android operating system setting. In case you’re curious about your options, here they are:
- LTE / 3G/ 2G automatically;
- 3G / 2G automatically;
- 3G only;
- 2G only.
Needless to say, any of the three other options, except for the LTE / 3G / 2 G automatically, is a good option when you want to disable the LTE. Just don’t forget, however, that the 2G only, which actually corresponds to the GSM mode, is a very slow connectivity option and you might want to avoid it as well.
While the 2G network coverage is impressive, the navigation speed – not so much. Then again, it’s up to you what network you choose for the Samsung device after you disable LTE on Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus.
