I am having trouble setting a specific roaming network on my Pixel 2. These are my options in the Mobile Network settings. Does anyone know how to set the roaming network here?

  • Thanks @beeshyams. I don't have "Choose network operators" in my "Mobile Network" settings. See the image I posted at the top. – BarryBostwick Jul 19 '18 at 15:04

    Thanks @beeshyams. I've added an image to my top post searching for 'network operator' -- unfortunately nothing found. Yeah I have looked into the solution you posted with dialing '#*#*4636#*#' but the problem is these network operators have the same network type / bands. – BarryBostwick Jul 19 '18 at 16:28

I managed to figure it out. The secret was setting the 'Preferred network type' from 'Global' to 'LTE / GSM / UMTS'. That displayed the 'Automatically select network' toggle which I disabled in order to select my desired network. See image below. Thanks for your help, beeshyams!
