why is my phone showing E signal instead of 4G

When your phone is showing “E” instead of “4G”, it means that your phone is currently connected to a 2G or 3G network. The “E” stands for EDGE (Enhanced Data rates for GSM Evolution), which is a type of 2G technology that provides data transfer rates up to 384 kbps (kilobits per second).

There are several reasons why your phone may display “E” instead of “4G”:

Network coverage: If you are in an area with poor 4G coverage, your phone may automatically switch to a slower 2G or 3G network to ensure that you can still make calls and access the internet, albeit at a slower speed.

Network congestion: If there are too many users connected to the 4G network in your area, your phone may switch to a 2G or 3G network to alleviate network congestion and provide a more stable connection.

Phone settings: It’s possible that your phone may be set to prioritize 2G or 3G connections over 4G, either by default or due to a setting that you have changed.

If you would like to switch back to 4G, you can try the following:

  • Check your phone’s settings to ensure that it is set to prioritize 4G connections.
  • Move to an area with better 4G coverage.
  • Contact your mobile service provider to ensure that your account is set up to access 4G networks.
