If LTE is on, and you make a call... Phone automatically switches to GSM, or 4 or 3g. I think that's what I've read.

If the above is true, then you're saying forcing LTE won't allow it to drop out of LTE to make calls. That makes sense.... I think. The trouble I'm having is understanding this..... If you can make calls and texts with data completely disabled.... I guess I'm not getting how being on LTE only can affect calls. Or is kind of like LTE is taking over the radio completely.... So calls and texts don't work. So on auto, LTE shuts itself down to allow you make calls. And of course with data disabled LTE is obviously off, so yes you can make calls and texts.

But with LTE forced on.... It basically hijacks the radio, not allowing voice and I assume Sms.

Have I finally got it? Lol I needs to learn. 😉
before we didnt have the ability to make calls on lte, but now we can, with newer radios, and networks that let us get calls on lte. but the n5 tech is one generation, maybe half a generation, before. now they have both, capabilities and network. but not many, of both. the hsps+/3G tech is much older, and more developed

You're just trying to confuse me! Lol 💩

As far as the n5 goes... LTE hijacks the radio. So if it's forced on full time ... Calls won't work. So that's a bad thing to do. Best left on auto. Lol 👍

Thanks my friend.

I'm down for auto, how do I keep it at auto, It loves to re designate itself, at random.

This was the reason I dumped my HTC M8 (vzw) for the nexus 5 to make sure I had both.

I can't check exactly for you, I no longer have my N5. But it's in mobile network settings. It should be anyway. I don't recall the options tho.

Or if you mean it doesn't keep on what you set it too.... That's an issue of some sort.

I just got it yesterday from google, it's a refurb, It shouldn't really have issues, not this soon.

Also, I'm on CM, if that helps, I doubt it, but It could be a build error.

Well, in the mobile settings somewhere.... It should have an option for auto that includes LTE.

Just try different ones till you can call out.
