    My phone seems to be stuck on 2G only, as if the other radio was turned off.
    It started after i had set my preferred network type to wcdma & gsm auto from the testing menu. Now network type is set to gsm only, and i cant change it to auto in either the testing menu or android settings. Anyone else have this problem? something im doing wrong?
    im somewhat of a new android user, only had a few weeks to learn my way around.
    on a positive note, battery life has been great since...

    Are you using Wi-Fi Calling? If so, that would explain it; whenever you have a strong connection to a wifi hotspot, Wi-Fi Calling sets your wireless to GSM to save battery. It restores it to your preference when your connection gets weak or you lose it altogether.

    If that's not your situation, I have no idea what might be causing it.
