Thank you for the reply, are you talking about only 4G or all the bands/frequencies for these providers? I think 900F is the only 4GLTE Model available for Samsung S5, am I correct?

No that assumption isn't correct. There are half a dozen S5 variants that have 4G coverage. But 4G /LTE is not just one band, so you really have to search to find out what bands a specific carrier uses and then compare that to the model in question. You can either look for a list of bands that the carrier uses.. which can take a bit of searching. Or approximate it by looking at which S5 model they provide to their customers and looking up the specs of that variant.

In most cases you will find overlapping band coverage between models. Meaning that you will probably have partial coverage with a different variant like the 900F.

Again, Google found me this:
LTE 800 / 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900 / 2100 / 2600 - SM-G900F
LTE 700 / 850 / 1700 / 1900 / 2100 / 2600 - SM-G900M
LTE 700 / 850 / 1700 / 1800 / 1900 / 2100 / 2600 - SM-G900A
LTE 700/850/900/1700/1800/1900/2100/2600 - SM-G900T
There are more but none match the current Indian frequencies afaik.
USE Search: /this thread /all threads/Google before posting your question, you`re most likely not the first one having this issue

You can search each carrier as follows

e.g. you want to know if the 900F will work on BSNL, etc
Do a Google search: specs sm-g900f

Now open another browser tab and
Do a Google search: bsnl india s5 site:samsung.com
That would tell you that BSNL uses the SM-G900HZKAINU variant

Do a Google search: specs SM-G900HZKAINU

Now compare the bands for both
At a glance (you should confirm this yourself) it appears that they match on 2G/3G, but have no 4G/LTE compatibility at all.

I had done the comparison on the Samsung website for these two models but then they seems to be working on same frequencies expect 4G, as 900H doesnt have 4G capability. But If i search over the internet it just gives random results...

SM-G900F
http://www.samsung.com/global/busine...00FZDAO2U-spec

2G GSM B8 (GSM 850MHz), B10 (E-GSM 900MHz), B13 (DCS 1800MHz), B14 (PCS 1900MHz)
3G UMTS B1 (IMT 2100MHz), B2 (PCS 1900MHz), B5 (US 850MHz Cellular), B8 (GSM 900MHz)
4G LTE B1(2100), B2(1900), B3(1800), B5(850), B7(2600), B8(900), B20(800) dependent on market support

SM-G900H

Seriously. A thread which holds a question will get a lot more useful replies if the title catches the eyes of an expert on that topic. Only saying the name of the phone that this WHOLE FORUM is about is not a particularly great idea. And a user with that many posts, should kinda know how to forum. Also, is using google THAT hard?! You're not going to get replies faster here than on google.

The link in my sig might help. Go ahead and have a look at it.
CURRENT DEVICE:

Phone: SAMSUNG SM-G900F
Firmware: Stock ANG9(XEF)
Rooted: Yes
Recovery: PhilZ recovery v6.26.6
Kernel: Stock
Other info: Xposed with lots of cool modules(credits to the creators )


Love this phone more than all the ones I had before COMBINED. If you're not sure wether to buy this phone or not, I recommend you do.

And remember to have a look at this if you are a noob and/or curious what might be behind this link.

Then its not bricked look on Sammobile.com/firmwares for a rom for your model and region.

Instructions for Odin:
Extract (unzip) the firmware file
Download Odin v3.09
Extract Odin zip-file
Open Odin v3.09
Reboot phone in Download Mode (press and hold Home + Power + Volume Down buttons)
Connect phone and wait until you get a blue sign in Odin
Add the firmware file to AP / PDA
Make sure re-partition is NOT ticked and untick Auto Reboot
Click the start button, sit back and wait a few minutes
Pull the battery, wait 15 seconds, reboot in recovery and data factory reset
Reboot.

Okay.. Getting back on topic, using the sm g900f here on Vodafone with no problems whatsoever.
There are no 4G networks in India AFAIK, but the phone works fine on 3g here.
