For the past few days, my phone connected to edge network which shows only “E” instead of “3G/H” on top left of notification bar. After done some changing on the settings, found out it is not Maxis network problem but just accidentally selected a wrong network (GSM only) by meself.
If you found the same problem as mine, you can test out to solve it by this method: go to “SETTINGS” -> “Mobile data” -> “Network mode” -> choose “GSM/WCDMA auto“.
