I have Koodo prepaid sim. Worked great while I was in the US. I am now home and all I get is 1 bar. Do my settings need to be changed? If so, what should they be. I think I should be getting better than 1 bar because when I had Koodo's regular service I had 5 bars here.

On some LG phones you may be able to use this code; *#*#4636#*#* to set the preferred network type. The code is entered from your LG 5's dial pad. After the code is entered, select 'Phone information' and look for 'Set preferred network type'.
Tap on the drop down menu and select 'WCDMA Only'. This network type usually displays four to five bars of signal strength. If the code does not work or you get an error message, you should be able to change to WCDMA Only mode from the same menu you used to change to LTE. A restart of the phone is not necessary when changing network types.
