Nokia Lumia 900 New Feature Unearthed; Try It Now

May 1, 2012, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Once a device comes out, it is time to dig it to find out some interesting features that hide under the hood. For example, Lumia 900 from Nokia has stolen the hearts of many, since it came out officially.

However now, talented geeks have unearthed a hidden option in the device which lets users select between different data transfer speeds.

Though everybody have talked much about the excellent features of this rig, there was no clue about such an interesting feature hiding behind this cute device. A simple tweak with the device will help you select between EDGE, 3G or 4G connectivity.

The interesting aspect is that you need not take the risk of bricking your phone since the feature comes along with the device. It just kept hiding, only that much.

Like many other Nokia devices, Lumia 900 also allows different codes with which users can launch diagnostic apps and utilities. The tweak also works in this way.

Now if you are adventurous enough to give it a try, type in ##3282# to open the Data Field Test utility. The moment the Data Field Tests Utility comes up, press the 3 at the bottom of the screen to access a Settings screen.

Once you access the settings, change the Network type, from 2G or 3G to Automatic. Return to the previous screen and check the options available. Among the options, go for “Toggle ENS (REBOOT)”. Now click Start and wait for the process to complete. Now click on Stop with which the rig will reboot.

Once the reboot is over, return to Cellular, where you can now select the highest connection speed to EDGE, 3G or 4G. The benefit, switch to EDGE if you want to keep the juices in your battery for long.
