Is there a way to force CDMA (3G) instead of 4G LTE?

Hello,


I'm wondering if there is a way to force CDMA (3G) on my LG G2 Verizon instead of it always being on 4G (4G everywhere in my area). I was able to do this on my Nexus phone, by simply changing the radio type from LTE to CDMA. On this phone, LTE/CDMA is combined as one option.


Any ideas on how to go about forcing CDMA only like I was able to on my Nexus?


Thanks

Unless there is a code to get further into the phone, it doesn't look like there is an option to force CDMA/3G only.

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

On HTC phones you can get to a phone info page by dialing (I think) *#*#4636#*#* from that page you can choose LTE/CDMA or CDMA/EVDO or even HSPA (for those traveling). I'm not sure if this is only for HTC phones....I'll google it.

I googled it (*#*#4636#*#*) and there seems to be even an android 4636 app. Supposedly it works for Android phones but I seem to remember that it is a command for CDMA phones but hey that's what you have.
