India has already launched 5G, and this Brand wise guide will show you how to activate it on your phone

The introduction of 5G services has been formally announced in India. Airtel made the announcement that its 5G services would be available in eight major cities shortly after the IMC 2022 5G launch. Today also marks the beginning of Reliance Jio’s beta testing of its 5G service with a small set of subscribers in four locations.

Are you lucky enough to be in one of the twelve cities with 5G support? You likely want to experience the many advantages of 5G and the increased data transfer rates it provides, so we’ve compiled a detailed guide to using 5G services to help you get started.

There are some prerequisites for using any 5G service, regardless of the network operator. To begin, you’ll need a smartphone with 5G capability. Make sure your mobile device is compatible with the necessary 5G bands. You can’t utilise 5G if your phone doesn’t support it.

The next step is a SIM card compatible with 5G. Fortunately, both Airtel and Reliance Jio have stated that users will not need to upgrade to a new SIM card in order to use 5G. In other words, your current 4G SIM card will operate with 5G. If you want to use this, though, your SIM card must be up to date.

Activating the 5G network on your mobile device is the third and most crucial step. Find your smartphone manufacturer from the list below and follow the instructions to activate 5G on your device.

Enable 5G support on your Samsung phone:

If you own a Samsung smartphone just follow the below mentioned instructions.

Open Settings > Connections > Mobile networks > Network mode > choose 5G/LTE/3G/2G (auto connect)

Enable 5G support on your OnePlus phone:

If you own a OnePlus smartphone just follow the below mentioned instructions.

Open Settings > Network & Internet > SIMs → Preferred network type > Choose 5G

Enable 5G support on your OPPO phone:

If you own a OPPO smartphone just follow the below mentioned instructions.

Open Settings > Wi-Fi & networks > SIM & network > Preferred network type > select 2G/3G/4G/5G (automatic)

Enable 5G support on your realme phone:

If you own a realme smartphone just follow the below mentioned instructions.

Open Settings > Connection & Sharing > Tap on SIM 1 or SIM 2 > Preferred network type > select 2G/3G/4G/5G (automatic)

Enable 5G support on your vivo (or) iQOO phone:

If you own a vivo / iQOO smartphone just follow the below mentioned instructions.

Enable 5G support on your Stock Android (or) Pixel phone:

If you own a Stock Android phone or Google Pixel smartphone just follow the below mentioned instructions.

Enable 5G support on your Xiaomi (or) POCO (or) Redmi phone:

After making the necessary tweaks and taking the necessary precautions, your phone should be ready to support 5G speeds. Your only step now is to get to a place with 5G service. If a 5G network is available in your area, your phone will instantly connect to that instead of the 4G one.

If your phone now sports a 5G logo instead of a 4G or LTE logo, it supports 5G speeds. Going to a speed test app is as easy as checking the speed. Keep in mind that the actual rate may differ from one area to another.

I hope this guide would have helped you enabling 5G on your smartphone. If you want to read more tutorial posts like these do check out “How To” section of our website.
