The foundation of 4G is used as the foundation of 5G. As a result, you don’t need a new SIM card to use 5G services Your current SIM will still be able to connect to 5G networks with NSA
5G network was launched in India in October. The announcement of this product sent shockwaves among telecom companies and smartphone manufacturers. When 4G first came to India, nobody thought much of it. People continue to use their phones as networks move away from voice-only 3G networks and increasingly to 4G (LTE) networks. However, despite strong marketing of 5G networks by Reliance Jio and Bharti Airtel, tech-savvy customers are still unsure how to enable 5G on their 5G phones.
Is there 5g in your area?
If 5G is not already available in your area, you will have to wait Both Jio and Airtel have launched 5G services in several cities in India and soon the entire country will be covered by this network. You will be notified when 5G is accessed in your network circle.
No new SIM required
The foundation of 4G is used as the foundation of 5G. As a result, you don’t need a new SIM card to use 5G services Your current SIM will still be able to connect to 5G networks with NSA Describe how NSA is a type of 5G network where user-end connection nodes are upgraded instead of the network core. Jio, which is building the country’s standalone (5G) network, claims that existing SIM cards will work, although the SA 5G network technically requires a new SIM card.
5G phones require software updates
Even if your phone is “5G enabled,” you won’t experience a 5G signal on it until the phone manufacturer sends you a software update. This is because smartphones are designed to constantly watch for a strong network signal. This is why your phone’s battery drains faster if you’re constantly in a bad network area. ‘5G ready’ smartphones have the necessary hardware to connect to 5G networks, but before they are shipped to India, manufacturers apply a “soft lock” to prevent the devices from using 5G networks and draining their batteries. We tell you that many phone manufacturers have set a deadline for you to get a software update that will make your phone 5G connectivity capable. By December, Apple and Samsung have promised to release patches that will allow 5G on Indian handsets. For this, don’t forget to check the “Software Update” area of your phone frequently.
Check your network settings
Each smartphone often selects the best network quality provided by its firmware to give you the fastest connection speed. Consequently, you need to ensure that you select the appropriate mobile data network on your phone To do this go to your phone’s network settings and select mobile data. If your phone has the necessary firmware to access the 5G network, under mobile data options, look for a label that says “5G/LTE” or something similar. Most of the time, its “Auto Connect” gives you coverage for all networks (3G/4G/5G).
