My Network searches in settings only shows 2G and 3G - how do I get the phone to seek the others?

You do not. The Z3 does not have 4G/LTE capabilities. You'll have to connect via 3G, which is pretty fast still for the most part.

Thanks - got that - my problem is that my phone will not connect wireless on the 2G and 3G that it shows. I suspect that in my area neither is provided by Telus - a slower one I assume that I do not seem to be bale to get my Z3 to seek out

I think I need LTE/WCDMA/GSM and my phone does not either recognize them or seek them out

Probably need to change my network mode on my phone - but don't know how to do

2G is only Rogers so there's that. Go into settings, network connections, Mobile network, and you can set it to anything with wcdma. Do you have network selection mode set to automatic?

The Z3 is not fully compatible with Koodo's WCDMA network - it's missing the 850 band.
