It works fine except that any SIM i insert can't access 3g/4g network. when I select the 3g/4g option, the network goes off for the different cellular providers. I have checked the APN settings too and is still give me EDGE. Please, I will be grateful for your help because I don't know what to do again. I currently in Ghana. thanks for your help

Check the band on which your Carrier operates and the compatible bands your phone can accept. Sometimes foreign carriers use a frequency that your phone can't utilize. You also might have to register the imei of the device with your carrier.

What carrier are you using?
