software changes won't pick up what your phone cannot see. If the phone's hardware radio cannot see that 3g band, then you won't be able to use it.

them, how can I see which bands my phone can see? because it looks like T-mobile HD7 does't support all the bands that HTC show in the Web.

The HTC HD7 T9295 and the HD7S supports UMTS850/1900/2100

The HTC HD7 T9292 supports UMTS 900/2100

The HTC HD7 T9296, supports UMTS 850/2100

for other UMTS850 high-end devices, see my signature

Almost (95%). But u can find this data in some australian forums, such as

http://forums.whirlpool.net.au/archive/1552579


Your T-Mobile-U.S. HD7 seems to show "T9296" only for the Telstra NoDo Upate (as when you flash your device, the original device information is owerwritten, although the radio bands are not altered, because these are hardware-dependant)

Another fact, is that Ive NEVER seen TMoUS HTC devices with "T" or "A" nomenclature (such as T9193, A8182...)



If you want to use an HD7 in 3G in Dominican Republic, I Think you must:

-Use an HD7 T9292 (European, including T-Mobile Europe) in Orange D.R.
-Use an HD7 T9295 (American) in Claro D.R.
(or eventually use an REAL T9296 there, but ONLY in case if Claro D.R. uses ONLY 3G-850; and NOT 3G-1900)
-Not Sure for Trilogy, but an HD7 T9295 must work in 3G (if Trilogy has 3G in 1900 or 850MHz)


Best regards

Default AT&T HTC HD7S T9295 3G support in European Union

Can I flash radio from european HTC HD7 T9292 to my AT&T HTC HD7S T9295 for UMTS 900/2100 support? (Original radio from AT&T HTC HD7S T9295 supports only UMTS850/1900, so 3G doesn't work in EU)

First question: Why is this thread in the OS-wide forum at all? It belongs in the HD7 forum.

Second, no @simploid, you cannot (or at least should not). The HD7 and HD7S are not the same device; there's enough difference that a ROM for one will not work entirely correctly on the other.

Do not private message me with questions that should have been posted on the forum! Not only are you wasting your time - I'm not going to bother writing an answer to such a question for only one person - but I will probably block you from PMing me in the future as well.
