I have a LG G3 i noticed when i put the network on gss/wcdma/ auto i my call bars drop to 1 then loses the signal. When i set it to gsm/wcdma auto i get 3 to 5 bars. I already had my phone replaced 3 times with all the same issues. I guess im left wondering is it the phone or something else?

Your phone has to be set as GSM/WCDMA/LTE

It doesnt have to be. But this is what my LG G3 is using on Koodo at the moment and mine works fine.

Thanks for the reply!
I only have the auto when it's on it my signal is very weak this is another phone that I received from replacement warrenty org. So I'm just making sure if it's the phone or not.
As you see in the pic I have 1 bar.
Thanks

I forgot to say that I had my 1st cell for 8 months and never had a problem like this. I'm in the same areas as I was with my original but now issues with the signal.
Thanks again

Thanks for the input now I can return the other phone back. I just needed to know if it was a normal for LG G3 and the phone was fine.
Thanks again
I've been pulling out my hair over this, lets just say it was a rollercoaster kind of week. :-)
By the way I'm in Windsor.

Chadwick, I work 15 minutes south of London, and live 15 minutes east of where I work.  Also anytime I set up a customer's phone, or adjust the settings in a phone to take it off LTE, it increases the signal quite a bit, especially on Rogers/Fido

Like I said I'll try it. But u can't get better than full bars which I have almost always. So no point in changing it lol

You can do one better by completely eliminating GSM, (GSM/WCDMA). Koodo doesn't operate a 2G GSM network. Essentially, the phone is searching for a non-existent network. 'WCDMA Only' will work just as well and may save a little battery in the process.
