Welcome to Vodafone Community
I have just purchased a Google Pixel 5 5G phone and thinking of trying out the Big value bundles that are compatible with a 5G Phone.
After I have purchased this bundle, i'm located in a 5G area and my pixel 5 phone is enabled to pick up a 5G signal. Does my sim need to have the 5G feature turned on centrally for this feature to work?
So as long as you tick tbe required criteria your good to go.
From PedroC1999 "Phones do not latch onto the strongest signal.
They follow the network assigned procedure, hence why it's not uncommon to be connected to a weaker signal than is strictly available "
Let us know how you get on if you manage to attain 5G and show off those 5G download speeds that allow faster file downloads.
