Default Lock into LTE only Mode?

Does anyone know how I could lock into LTE only mode? The phones I am using (T-Mobile & AT&T S5) is not rooted. Nor am I allowed to root it. I've search through all of the debug menus and its seems like I can only lock into certain bands. I havent had any success sending AT commands either....but I am not sure this would still even be capable as I do not know the Qualcomm AT commands to lock into a certain RAT.
Current:
AT&T Samsung Galaxy S4

Try this: Dial *#*#4636#*#*, look for LTE only option and select that. Hit home to clear out of dialer. Hope this works!

This works on most phones, but not the S5 for some reason. It must be another code.

Correct. That code will not work. I have tried that one. I have also looked through the menus of *#197328640# and *#2263#

I'll be following this thread. Hopefully someone figures it out. None of the apps on the play store work either since they all pretty much redirect to the *#*#4636*#*# code anyway.

EDIT: Oops..gave you a free thanks. Oh well

Ok, so I figured it out. If you dial *#2263# and select "LTE Band Preference" it will lock it into LTE only (I am using an unlocked T-Mobile phone, not sure if that makes a difference). I have confirmed this via AT Commands. I have a new question. I have queried what bands can be selected. Does anyone know which one would be for LTE Band 17? What is "41.WLAN_US_5000"...

If anyone is interested, and using xposed, I created an xposed module that allows you to have a widget on your homescreen which easily enables you to change the network mode of choice.
