Is it possible to disable 5G on the Galaxy S21+ on Android 12 & One UI 4.0? I've searched through the Android 11 method of Settings>Connections>Mobile Networks> Network Mode but apparently that has been removed all together. I couldn't find it in Dev Options either.

Could it be hidden somewhere else?

Does anyone know the ADB command?

To anyone else wondering how to do this, I ended up using an app called Samsung Band Selection to remove the use of the 5G band.

@USAMac , I have used the Samsung Band selector for some other purpose, can you detail how to remove the use of the 5G Band.

Would appreciate your time.
I wanted to share with you that I ended up switching my connection type to GSM/WCDMA/LTE because in my area, even LTE is not always present. I've personally found this to be a lot more flexible in service and took away the occasional G I would see next to my signal bars. Hope this helps!

    Weird...my T-Mobile S21+ with Android 12 has this option. Settings -> Connections -> Mobile Networks -> Network Mode -> "LTE/3G/2G (auto connect)"

    I have to use this a lot cause 5G around here isn't that great in some places.

    Happy to help. I used Samsung Band Selection straight from the Play Store. Once opened, 'Launch Band Selection'

    Maybe this was just a Verizon modification 🤷‍♂️
