    Selecting mobile networks

    Arrow left Xperia L3 support overview

    Your device automatically switches between mobile networks depending on which mobile networks are available where you are. You can also manually set your device to use a particular mobile network mode. If you are using a Dual SIM device, this applies to each SIM card.

    Different status icons are displayed in the status bar depending on the type or mode of network that you are connected to. Refer to Status icons to see what the different status icons look like.

    1. Find and tap Settings > Network & Internet > Mobile network.
    2. Dual SIM users, select a SIM card.
    3. Tap Preferred network type, then select a network mode.

    Note

    If you are using a Dual SIM device, LTE can only be selected for one SIM card.
