If your phone has any ability for Band preference, it would only be for scan preference. Once you connect to the network, the network will decide which band you're on regardless of your phone's scan preferences.

 

For instance, if you made Band 41 your highest preference, it would scan B41 first. If it found B41, it would connect to it. Once the network recognizes your device connected on B41, it would then decide if there is a band that it prefers you to be connected to and will shunt you over to it. The network does not care what bands your device prefers to scan.

 

The only exception to this is some Samsung devices have within their hidden menus the ability to turn off some bands completely. But we have not seen those abilities with any other devices.

I wasn't aware iOS has an option to choose Band.

I'm not sure it is easily accessible. It appears he's looking at the PRL, in which tampering with could yield bad results.

It's actually the PRI, to be exact :)

I don't know how to change the preferred network scan choices on iPhone. I wish I did.

    • Some recent non-urban new builds in Utah, which are a mix of Sprint conversions and new site builds: Central Cedar City Enoch Parowan Beaver Wallsburg I'm also hearing of future new site builds in places that currently have weak / no signal on all carriers like Fountain Green, Oak City, Woodland, and along Hwy 191 in the canyon north of Helper by the Power Plant. There are also an unbelievable number of Sprint conversions happening in the urban Wasatch Front corridor as well. 
    • Only time I have gotten a free sim from them is when I "purchased" some "free" phones from T-Mobile, unless I go back to when they were a distant 4th carrier.  My four other MVNOs are feast or famine, so I try to keep several hanging around.  I have noticed different versions have different capabilities, and newer is not always better.  They typically force you to upgrade when you need to activate another discount period.  
    • Hard to imagine they're actually worth much as easy as they are to get free though.....they keep sending them out unsolicited like nuts.  We just got like a 3rd packet of them less than a month ago and got another email notifying "SIM card is on the way".  
    • E-bay.  The physical sims do have one advantage: they are not tied to your phone, thus you can change phones mostly without your carriers permission (except Sprint billing). Benefits signal hunters, travellers, and thieves.
    • Maybe in a museum? When the phone manufacturers follow Apple’s lead and go all eSIM it will be a moot point. At least in the states.
