Hi, are these devices, specified as respectively for the 3G & 4G network ,backwards compatible with 2G? Reason being I plan to use in a rural area (on fringe of 3G signal) . My Samsung Galazy phone switches between 3G & 2G when connected to mobile data in this location. Thanks...

Yes, I can confirm they will fall back to 2G, you'll probably only get 170 kbit/s in terms of speed but they'll work.
