If you find or suspect that your operator has turned off 2G coverage where your 2G-only device is located, here's how you can confirm your suspicions and/or what you should do to see if you have access to other carriers, via roaming.
Hey Curtis, thanks for that info. Addtionally, would it not be a good idea to make sure your device is not restricted to a particular band in multiband modules? Some carriers only turn it off for one band or the other in some cases, correct?
Is there something one could do to check that?
Ensuring the bands are not restricted to one particular band is a good point. Generally, modules are configurable to band sets (i.e. US bands or EU bands); however, there are some modules that allow you to set 1 band. If the band setting is configurable (it may not be), there will be a custom AT command for this.
