Pixel 6 Pro

If anyone else has the issue of being stuck on 3G with poor signal after switching to a Pixel 6, I had to manually reset my preferred network type:

  • Call *#*#4636#*#*
  • Select ‘Phone Information’
  • Set preferred network to whatever you want but I chose NR/LTE/TDSCDMA/GSM/WCDMA

Voila, 4G works again.


I’d suggest NR/LTE/WCDMA - there’s no TD-SCDMA outside China, and GSM is quite slow and insecure to the point that being connected to nothing, so the phone can hunt for 3G or 4G, is probably better.

Heck, I’m tempted to change mine to just NR/LTE but there are some places 3G is genuinely useful.
