so i have an odd issue.
My new Sony Xperia XA2 (H3123) will not connect to LTE in my home suburb of Petone, Lower Hutt. If I drive to Lower Hutt or back into Wellington, it will connect at LTE. My previous phone Nexus 5x did not have this issue.
2 other people in our house are on 2degrees and I am the only one having this issue.
Other point to add, the phone was bought in USA last month when my Nexus 5x ended up having the boot looping issue and i was forced to buy a new phone on the spot. The Xperia XA2 is compatible with networks in NZ and is unlocked.
Using the app "Network Cell Info", i can see the phone will not connect to the 3 closest cell sites to me. Also if i force my phone to use LTE (via the secret test menu), it will connect to a cell tower in Wellington CBD and then only give me 1 weak bar.
Any ideas? I have an issue logged with 2degrees.
If i insert a friends Spark SIM into my phone, the phone is fine. If i insert my SIM card into flat mates phone, no issue on their iPhone 10.
