That is an AT&T restriction. There are many threads about it all over the Internet with people upset that AT&T does this.

Unfortunately, that's exactly what I mean. I have an unlocked Z10 that I had a temporary AT&T sim card in. While that sim card was in i could not switch to 2G. When I removed the AT&T sim and inserted my TMobile sim I immediately got the option back.

AT&T doesn't want you using their 2G network if your phone is capable of 4G & 4GLTE.
