I've searched all around this forum and haven't seen anybody with this issue.

I cannot find the Find My Mobile Setting, which was supposed to be on Settings > Security > Remote Control.

Does anyone know if this setting was suppressed on SGS5 or just on T-Mobile's SM-G900T? How to enable this setting?

Thanks in advance.

It isn't there on any of the carrier branded phones.

Thank you very much!!!

Sorry for bothering you, but I have a few more questions. I am from Brazil and these modifications on Android made by T-Mobile really bothers me:

1) If I install a custom Rom, will fix these problems (T-Mobile's modifications)?

2) Do you know if there is a Non Branded Firmware for SM-G900T or any other stock firmware compatible with this model?

Thanks for helping me!!!

1. Depends which rom
2. Yes, anything in the international S5 section on XDA is compatible with the g900t. Those will remove all the tmobile modifications.

@aooga, you really helped me. Once again, thank you very much!

Last questions, I promise

1. Depends which rom
So, what you are saying is that depends on which Android this Rom is based, correct? For example, the AllianceRom based on SM-G900F is a free modifications Rom, is that right?

2. Yes, anything in the international S5 section on XDA is compatible with the g900t. Those will remove all the tmobile modifications.
I downloaded the stock firmware of SM-G900M on the international S5 section, but I couldn't flash it without Root. Should I root my device first?

Thanks in advance

1. If it is based on G900F software, then yes, the tmobile stuff will be removed. That's the stock international phone.

2. No need to flash the whole firmware...things can go wrong with that. Just flash a rom in TWRP (custom recovery). Don't use odin for anything. Yes, you need to root and install custom recovery in order to flash roms. Again, do NOT flash anything in ODIN. Find a rom that is flashable in recovery, not a firmware that's flashable in odin.

Hope it helps.

It's disabled via csc. It's enabled in my rom or just use a file manager to open system/csc/features.xml. Then find the two options that say find my mobile and change false to true and reboot. Enjoy!

Thank you very much, tp2215!! You helped me a lot also. The only thing is that I had to change true to false and not the inverse.

Which rom based on the original Android and without the T-Mobile modifications you suggest me to install? I'd really appreciate if you could help me once more.

Thanks in advance.

Well if you are referring to an aosp based rom that isn't TouchWiz then there isn't over yet. My rom is the project infinity rom. The only real differences between the international roms and the t mobile roms is the t mobile roms have WiFi calling and HD voice included. Check the Android development forums for either and compare them, they all focus on different things and have there strengths and weeknesses.
