Question [Q] Not able to pick up a 4G LTE signal on my i9305...

Hi, I have a Samsung Galaxy S3 I9305 LTE which is originally from Three UK, but I have tried a couple of stock roms, one of which was unbranded from Germany and another one which is the EE UK one, all of these on Android 4.3.

Now my phone is able to pick up a 2G or 3G signal (be it 3G/H/H+ whatever) but it will not pick up a 4G LTE signal even though the same EE4G sim card I have will work perfectly fine with signal in my Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 LTE?

What am i doing wrong or is there any way to enable the phone to actually use 4G? (I have made sure the network mode is set to include 4G as "Auto Mode")

~ Many thanks for anyone who is able to offer me the time to help ~

Maybe try another modem. I am from Germany and had to change modem from xxuemkc modem to xxbme1 modem, because lte didn't work on first modem, either.

Try one of these

Good luck.

Hi, I have managed to solve my own question but thank you ever so much for taking the time to help me

It turns out that I had to downgrade my phone to 4.1.2 through Mobile Odin and then enter Service Mode and from the Debug Menu there is an somewhere within the UMTS, DRX Control option to enable LTE DRX 0X1 1X0 or something on those lines, so I enabled it and voila i now get 4G!
