Default [Q] No option on network settings for LTE on Samsung S4 (i9500).

Hi everyone,

I have a Samsung Galaxy S4 (I9500) currently running Android 4.4.2 Kit Kat. I bought my phone abroad in Gibraltar in September 2013 and it was unlocked to any network. As the phone was not bought in the UK, my phone is not locked to any carrier and therefore the carrier cannot send the settings needed to update my phone to 4G. I have been in contact with my carrier (three) and they have told me that it is not a problem on their end as my phone is unlocked. They have advised me to go to a Samsung Shop so that they can sort it out for me but i was wondering if there was a way i would be able to fix it myself?

Here are some details about phone:

Model Number - GT-I9500
Android Version - 4.4.2
Baseband Version - I9500XXUFNC1

I'm pretty sure the GT-I9500 is not capable of LTE.

I have looked a lot online and i am pretty sure that it is capable of LTE. I might need to double check with Samsung to be sure but my research online has said that the I9505 is not LTE and the I9500 is. There is mass confusion over their capabilities though so i am not 100% sure.

I9500 doesn't support LTE. I9505 supports it. I own I9505 and LTE is working fine.

Not sure where online your finding BS that says the i9500 has LTE (4G) you had better delete it from your bookmarks.
