Nokia Lumia 925 3G coverage, not 4G!

Answered

I recently purchased a nokia lumia 925 believing that I was going to get 4G coverage.  Once getting home I realised that I am only getting 3G coverage. I live in Cairns. The sales assistant was really pushing this phone. And yes I did sign the contract and failed to look at the small  print of only a 3G coverage.  I feel like I have been deceived, and I am very disappointed.

Cairns does have 4G service, but it is affected by the terrain more than the 3G services (ie the 3G will operate in a greater area).

 

The Lumia 925 is 4G capable and so is the phone service.  The thing that will be preventing you receiving 4G is where you live in Cairns.  The phone drops back to 3G because that is the signal it is receiving.

Never be afraid to back yourself when trying new things, just always make sure you have 3 escape routes if things go wrong.
