Select network mode

3G (UMTS) or 4G (LTE) enables you to achieve higher data speeds than when using 2G (GSM). If you select LTE/GSM/WCDMA (Auto mode), your tablet automatically switches between the three network modes provided you're within range of a 3G or 4G network. If you select GSM only, you can't achieve high data speeds. If you select WCDMA only, your tablet can only connect to 3G networks.

Tap LTE/GSM/WCDMA (Auto mode), GSM only or WCDMA only.
