I finally got my Padfone X unlocked, and have been trying to get it set up on a different network.

According to the spec on the AT&T website, the Padfone X should support LTE Band 4 (1700/2100) and from my research, my network is the same. However, when I take a look at mobile networks from "Settings > More... > Mobile Networks > Network Operators", my network doesn't appear in the list (though others do).

If I enter the service code "*#*#4636#*#*" to get to the service menu, I don't see any option to change the band. I do see an options to "Set preferred network type" (which I set to "LTE/GSM/CDMA auto (PRL)") but the result is the same in that my network does not appear.

Any ideas how I can check what band the Padfone X operates on (or how to change it)?

Note: I've rooted the device, so I can poke around in the terminal, I just don't know where to look :/

After looking a bit more, I found out that I can pull up the `Band Settings` page if I run the following adb command.

 am start -n com.android.settings/.BandMode
Bu it just brings me to a page with no settings :/
