[Tricks] Access 3G Speed in 2G Data Plan on Android Smartphone

Here are simple tricks to convert your 2G data to 3G and access high speed 3G internet on your Android smartphone.

If you wish to have 3G internet speed in 2G data plan then here we have come up with some of the best tricks and settings changes which could help you in doing so.

Make sure you have a smartphone which supports 3G. Theoretically, it is not possible to convert 2G into 3G browsing speed but the following tricks may make your dream come true.

Trick 1

Convert your mobile 2G Data into 3G

First, download these 3 files on your Android device. The first two are Play Store apps while the 3rd is .txt file.

You should have rooted Android device.

  1. Open the Speed Optimizer app
  2. Set max network speed as 12/28/7
  3. Select speed increase
  4. Apply the changes made and reboot the device.
  5. Now open the Script Manager app
  6. Locate the Turbo Charger.txt file
  7. Allow Super User or root permission or click on Super user icon, grant root permission and run the Turbo Script.txt file
  8. Scroll up and set the speed to fastest.
  9. Reboot your device and change the network setting to WCDMA (See below)
  10. Again reboot your device and enjoy high speed 3G in 2G data pack.

Trick 2

Make setting changes  to get 3G speed in 2G

  1. Open Android Settings
  2. Under Wireless and Network, tap on More
  3. Select Mobile Networks/Cellular Networks
  4. Select your SIM card. ( For dual SIM devices)
  5. Then check for option called Network Mode or Preferred network type and click it.
  6. You will find three options called GSM only, WCDMA only andWCDMA/GSM mode or 2G, 2G/3G or 3G. (For 4G devices you will also see LTE or 4G option)
  7. Now select option as WCDMA Only or 3G
  8. Restart your Phone

You will get only 3G browsing speed but your download will be still at 2G rate.

Rather than a trick, it is more of a setting change, 3G data speed on WCDMA may be available only if your service provider has HSDPA rights in your circle.

    • Nikhil says:

      Your device may have not been rooted.

      • Shailesh says:

        It is rooted. I rooted it through Kingroot. The erre is sed:not found.

        • Nikhil says:

          On which Android version your Device runs and is device name?

          • Shailesh says:

            Samsung Galaxy Note 2. Android 4.4.2

          • Nikhil says:

            There is some system file in Note 2 which can’t allow the script to run.

  22. Vishal Saha says:

    According to your trick, I have followed all the procerure and when I was just begain to run the script on the script manager of my phone (Micromax A116 HD), at the end of the script after running it indicates to insert a number from [0-8] which was written at the end of the script, so I inserted 8 after that again I guess the script was started to run after a while at the last it says bye.
    After that I just rebooted my phone and than tried to browse the internet but the speed for which I have done so many things stucked at that same old place, it wasn’t good.
    I don’t know what to do now

    • Nikhil says:

      In many devices, the OS may not allow the script to interfere with networks. So, you cannot use the internet at high speed. But you use any VPN service like Opera VPN or MasterVPN which will allow the script to run over proxy server at high speed.

    अगर बात करें मोबाइल नेटवर्क की Airtel कंपनी जैसा मोबाइल नेटवर्क जो कि दिन-रात TV पर ऐड आता है Airtel का नेटवर्क इंडिया का सबसे बेहतर नेटवर्क बता रहे हैं जबकि दोस्तों सच्चाई यह है कि Airtel कंपनी जैसा घटिया बेकार सड़ा हुआ नेटवर्क शायद Aircel कंपनी का भी नहीं है अगर आप देखेंगे कोई भी ऐसी जगह जहां नेटवर्क किसी भी कंपनी का नहीं पहुंच पाता वहां पर आप नोट कीजिएगा मेरी बात पर सिर्फ या तो vodafone का नेटवर्क कौन चलाता है या फिर या फिर जिओ कंपनी का मैंने जो महसूस किया vodafone से बेहतर कुछ नहीं खाली TV पर ऐड देने से कोई फायदा नहीं है Airtel कंपनी वालों अपने नेटवर्क में सचमुच सुधार करो तुम्हारा ऐड देखकर यह तो मैंने अपना ₹500 का सिम खरीदा और मेरा 500 का नुकसान हुआ
