Default [Q] Changing Radio Basebands

Hi there,

I am wondering if I can change the basebands/modem from my D801 T mobile G2 to work with the international D802 basebands since I am moving to germany. Can we just flash a new modem to get different LTE bands since it's a S800, as qualcomm said the first world LTE processor?

thanks a lot

Not that i'm aware of. Check the tmo bands and see if they are compatible with the common german carriers. Otherwise I would just sell your G2 on swappa and purchase another.

It's not possible to change the bands a phone operates under. Here are the bands the different versions use (taken from Wikipedia) so you can check if the 801 will work with whichever carrier you're planing on going with.

◾AT&T - D800
GSM 850/900/1800/1900UMTS 850/1900/2100LTE 1900(2)/1700(4)/850(5)/700(17)


◾Sprint - LS980
GSM 850/1900CDMA 800/850/1900UMTS 850/1900LTE 1900(25)/800(26)/2500(41)


◾T-Mobile - D801
GSM 850/900/1800/1900UMTS 850/1700/1900/2100LTE 1900(2)/1700(4)/700(17)


◾Verizon - VS980
