3G Signal Poor and not Working!

Hello ...

My nexus 5 is driving me crazy.

All of a sudden it stopped getting 3G . It just stayed in 2G (EDGE).

I called the carrier support, they don't know what to do.

This sim works fine in other phones.

Other sims also do not get 3g network on this phone.

I've done a full reset, flashed stock, tried several radios, nothing.

Update (10/23/2015)

If i set it to LTE preferred, WCDMA preferred or LTE/GSM auto (PRL) it finds the network and it connects in 2G EDGE Only

I tested all above and to not work

any help ?

Have you checked to see what your Preferred Network Type option is set to? Select your preferred network type from options like LTE, 3G, and 2G.

If above is not relevant try below.

Have you checked with your network provider that the APN settings (on your Nexus 5, go to Settings > More... > Mobile Networks > Access Point Names> select your provider) are correct for a 3G service?

Check the settings in the phone where your sim works and see if they are the same.
