Ive played around all over in the service menus trying to get 850 to work and they just wont. I have tried 2 versions of KF1, KB3, KD1, and Korean KC1 nexus modems. Ill upload the modems in a bit.

Interesting. However, if you look at the speed test I posted in the OP, I was achieving HSPA speeds on KB3. The modems have had some weird things associated with them. Sometimes they would not be recognized by the ROM and other times they would cause the phone to reboot? I think its a trial and error and the ROM plays a huge role in the overall usage of these modems. For now, I'm sticking to KG3. hopefully more people can report about these modems.
