There are widgets, but they do not work.

Cannot turn off LTE with above instructions
When I try to follow the instructions, I dial the number and a pop-up appears with "USSD Code Running..." then it closes and a new pop-up appears saying "connection problem or invalid MMI code". I have tried to make this call from various areas with better connections than in my house, but still to no avail. I'd really like to disable the LTE because it is only strong enough to constantly force changes from 4G to LTE and back while massively draining my battery in the process. Any advice?

I upgraded from S3 to S5... In Out location there is one LTE tower.
When at office which is bit far from LTE tower, It only connects to LTE and due to congestion i always get 0.2 mbps only..
But When i had S3, it will switch automatically to 4G(HSPA+) at office and at home or shopping it connects to LTE.
So I called ATT support and they said its due to network congestion and they switched to 4G on their side.
So now its always shows 4G only no LTE but speed are good like 8 to 10 mbps..

I tried the steps in post1 and it shows WCDMA preferred... Is this what they modified remotely?

Try Intelli3G everyone, you have to install Xposed framework and then install it but this app is amazing for convenience.

I tried changing to LTE option its not allowing. I can change to other options other than LTE.
Any idea.. Is it controlled by AT&T?

I called ATT and asked them to change it to LTE.
Now I can change the settings as needed.

So if ATT sets to 4G, you wont be able to switch to LTE.
