2G Only

It is also known as GSM Only. That's mean your mobile will look for only 2G signals whether you are in a 2G network area or not. GSM (2G) will provide a slow internet connection, and it is suitable for voice services, but the voice will not be clear as compared to 3G only because of low bandwidth.

3G Only


3G also represents in some devices as WCDMA or UMTS only which are 3G networks, and it allows you to surf the internet faster than 2G. Using this mode, your mobile will look only for a 3G signal. Use this option with care because still, 3G is not available in some countries. It is better in both voice service and the internet as compared to 2G only.

4G Only or LTE Only

In this mode you are forcing your device to look only for 4G signals. This mode is perfect choice for non travelers. Travelers are advised to Global Mode to stay in network without any issue. Using this mode you will surf internet with high data rates and can watch video without buffering. This mode provides high data rate as compared to 3G only mode.

3G/2G (Auto-Connect)


It is also known as WCDMA/GSM. Using this mode user allowed the mobile user to switch between 2G and 3G. If the WCDMA (3G) signal is not available, then mobile will automatically look for 2G signals. Sometimes the device changes the mode from one to another because of low signals. Instead of using 2g or 3g only I will recommend you to use this network mode because it will auto switch your network which has stronger signals.

LTE/3G/2G (Auto-Connect) or Global Mode

This mode is especially designed for those who travels most of their times because this mode support almost all Networks start from 1G to 4G. In case if you traveling to a country or a city where 4G is not available so this mode will switch your network to 3G and so on. And you will receive signal without any issue and also you will not missed any singal call or sms.

Also note that some devices don't support 4G Only mode. In that this mode is perfect choice for you especially when browsing YouTube or uploading videos. LTE Provides fast Internet speed as compared to 3G and 4G. Here also switching occurs based on network availability and signal strength.

What is the best-preferred network mode?

Best preferred Network Mode is LTE/3G/2G because you allow the device to select the best and reliable Network for you, but the disadvantage is it will consume battery 🔋. In case you are not using the internet on your device, I will recommend you to select 3G/2G (auto-connect) because it will save your battery and GSM is almost available everywhere.

What network mode should my verizon phone be on?


It doesn't matter what kind of device or network you use, same above mentioned rules are applied for all. Verizon American multinational Telecommunication but it surf mainly America so if you are American citizens and have no plane to leave country then 4G LTE mode is a nice choice for you.

Verizon Network Mode Global or LTE


As discussed above if you are traveling outside the country or within the country especially towards village side then Global Mode is perfect for you. But if you are not traveling too far then 4G LTE Only better for you. Because in this mode your device is forced to look for 4G signals only and you will receive HD voicemail and calls.
