Thanks. Is this a new phone that had this signal problem out of the box or did it work fine for a while and start having this issue out of the blue?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

i bought it from ebay new one, you see it works in big cities, everything is good, but in small city is dead end

well what you think?

Expert:  Carl L replied 4 years ago.
I'm thinking that either it's Firmware has been altered by the person who sold it or your RX Circuit is only working on 4G and nothing else. I would perform a Hard Reset and try again. If that doesn't work, something is seriously wrong with it and I would have the ebay seller exchange you for a new one.

Normally this issue is the other way around but it can happen.
