Hi,

Guys I am from Pakistan and using Galaxy S3 I9300 International Version. Recently, all telecom operators of Pakistan have switch their networks to 3G. Nowadays, they are testing 3G services in some areas of major cities. They have told their customers to set their mobile settings to WCDMA for 3G services.

After setting to WCDMA, I receive 3G services without any issue but as soon as I leave the coverage area 3G plus Cellular Services switched off.
I change the settings to Auto GSM/WCDMA, but after that even in 3G coverage area I get Edge Services and not 3G.

Q) Is there any way, by which I can configure the option of Auto WCDMA/GSM with WCDMA Preferred ?
