I bought my G3 in Indonesia so its an SEA version. I have no 4G option here in Indonesia (where there is no 4G), but if I pop in a Smart Philippines SIM card (they do have 4G), the 4G option does appear. I've tested the 4G in the Philippines and it works fine.

The key is a SIM card which is provisioned for 4G. You won't see 4G as an option unless the SIM is provisioned for it, even if you're currently connected via 3G to a network operator which has a 4G network.

Not the issue here in the UK. I had a SEA firmware device and tried three different 4G SIM cards and no LTE optoon was available. The device is region locked somehow.
