Default How do you force LTE mode and not HSPA?

on the device the preferred network type is LTE but most of the time it falls back to HSPA mode and not LTE how do you force the LTE mode only? My location get's 3-4 bars for LTE coverage and all 5 bars for HSPA but LTE is faster

Dial *#*#4636#*#* on the keypad and under phone settings there is LTE only. Your phone won't work for calls possibly after you do this and you won't get data outside of an lte area.

Thank You. Yes it did work but changed it back since I need my cell phone to be a cell phone for calls

How do you change it back? Mine keeps reverting back to LTE only and I am unable to make and receive calls.
