Default LG G3 D855 Euro Model on Rogers Wireless - does LTE work ?

Hi all,

Just picked up the D855 euro version LG G3 and do not see any LTE options in the data section.

I only see GSM/WCDMA.
I entered the LTE mobile settings for rogers and only see "H", not even 4G...

Is there a menu where I can switch this ?

And will I be able to use LTE in Montreal on Rogers Wireless using the 700 / 2100 / 2600 bands ?
I notice it doesnt have AWS with 1700 /2100
I dont mind if it says 4G as long as I can get LTE speeds...

Any help would be much appreciated

Thanks

I'm seeing the same on mine (Starhub Singapore D855). I think 4G is some countries is considered a value added service. You may need to call it in and have it activated on your SIM. I plan to call them later today after work to confirm.

I got mine to work on Fido. I flashed the HKG firmware through the TOT/DLL method. Then I either choose band 4 or 7(can't remember) in developer settings (3845#*885#)

Flash method: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2799647 (Go say thanks to wolfgart!) There should also be a link to a guide to flashing. Also here are some screen shots if they help.

Speed

System 1

System 2


Hope this helps!

Thanks so much

I actually got mine working by installing the app "LTE On Off" from the Google Play Store and selecting LTE/GSM/WCDMA

And entering Rogers LTE APN settings

Am getting 80MBPS download and 20MBPS upload

Works perfectly

Go to your dialer and type 3845#*855# go to LTE only, then band selection. Chose band 4. Then in your regular settings enter the APN for T-Mobile, and change network selection GSM/WSPDA/LTE auto. Restart your phone.

I did that. I also deleted lte configurations. In System/ apps/. Didn't do the trick. I flashed multiple KDZs and it didn't Work. It just doesnt have the right bands for it to work on Tmobile. So i ordered a G3 cat6.
