Hi friends,

For me 2G was always the best choice for voice and text, specially when I am travelling and the coverage is very poor. 2G will be always your friend to call in the worst radio conditions.
2G network destination was only for voice and txt and the implemented voice codec was awesome.
3G,4G are very good in the city/good coverage (network capacity is higher to avoid congestion).
Long time ago I remember for Christmas time when in the whole city we had network congestion I was using a signal txt to bts to get priority for my cell.....yeap, it was 2G.
Also a call divert code or VMS ##002# was helping to "get some priority"
The most beautiful time of GSM era. Just for fun....2G is history now also EDGE and WAP...
3G,4G ...5G are all the same now...just more capacity and more speed....but the pioneers of GSM were in that time of the 2G era...

All the best.

If you have a not-so-recent cellphone, and voices are cut off when talking over your phone, try selecting the network mode "automatic GSM/WCDMA/LTE". It worked for me with my LG G4.

Hi Janique

Thanks for sharing your news! This can help others. Also it's good to turn off some advanced functions on your phone like VoLTE, voice clarity, etc as those are not used with Fizz mobile.
Thanks again and Welcome to Fizz!
