Deactivate GSM-Module in Android

+1 vote

I would like to deactivate the GSM module in cell phone Google Nexus 4 so that the user cannot manipulate this state either- by setting the flight mode without possibility of user interaction to re-activate- or with system command for deactivating the GSM module- or by manipulating the firmware for Google Nexus 4. Is there a chance for solving this problem?Are there other ideas to solve this?

The third thing is impossible.

How are you going to stop people from taking open source firmware, rewriting it, and installing it? You can't.

Here are the details: I use the Google Nexus 4 phone for a special application. I installed my android-app on the phone, and the user should only be able to use/ interact with this app and not be able to use other functions of the phone such as telephone or send messages. I also have to be sure that the user cannot change the settings I made (e.g. set flight mode).
I would prefer to change the firmware but have no idea how to do this. Do you have any suggestions?

I am trying to figure out the best way to get a device to only use LTE and not GSM. I want to know would it be better to write an up to attempt to force the android to stay in LTE only or in the android OS and make the change.

We have some native code that was doing a xmpp ping every 12 minutes, and if a ping didn't happen til 5 minutes after the device went to sleep, the GSM connection would silently drop.
If we change our ping interval to something like 4 minutes, the GSM connection will stay up even after the device goes to sleep.
My question is are the rules for how the GSM radio and sleeping documented anywhere?Are the rules changed by Manufacturer or by Carrier?

I live in a remote location with awful reception, and a friend suggested I should get a signal booster. I can connect to LTE if I force it in my phone's Hidden Menu (LG G5) but it functions basically at the same speed as HSPA, however when I visit a big city the 4G connection kicks in on its own and at very high speeds.

I found out that my phone carrier is using Band 3 for LTE which should mean that I need a 1800 Mhz signal booster which I found on ebay, but I'd really appreciate it if someone who actually knows this stuff could take a look and say if I'm right in my choice of this signal booster.

Included are screenshots of my Phone's LTE connection details as well as the item page of the signal booster I found.
