Simple question, is there a way to force mate 10 pro to stay connected in 4G ?
With my previous phone I was using an app, which had more choice than the android's setting menu, where there was a "4G only". But it's not working with the mate 10 pro.
thanks

Huawei must have disabled the network selection options because every phone I've had you could always enter *#*#4636#*#* in the dialler and you could toggle 4g only in one of the menus.

It seems you can enter the menu by dialling in *#*#6130#*#* but you still can't select the network options

I might have find something with a tool from the team behind FirmwareFinder. They have an "EMUI tweaker" and there is an option to force 4G but ... not sure it's compatible with the mate 10 pro.

Found the Solution:

In Settings Database Editor, find the line "hw_add_4g_only". For me it was set to "250" (Russia only).

Change this to "250;[yourMCC]" (in my case "250;262" for Germany) and reboot.

Thanks for the hint!
if the phone is not rooted, will it be a problem?

could you please explain about where this editor is (or how to edit this setting)?
thanks in advance!!

i'm wondering if there's a way to enable Wi-Fi calling and VoLTE (both options are missing from my Mate 10)

If it's not rooted you won't be able to edit database settings.
But this method doesn't work on my Huawei Mate 10 Pro.
Is there any better way to force Huawei in LTE

Works for me too, this may be of interest to those like me on 2degrees network as our provider has switched off the 2g spectrum. Setting 12 (auto 4g/wcdma) may save battery if your phone happens to be looking for a network that's not there.
Likely saves nothing tho... will see.
