Prompt [Q] unlocked U9000 with Tmobile only picks up Edge

Hi everyone,

Sorry if this is in the wrong place (this is my first post) but it seems like the only place after 10 minutes of looking around that might actually be of some assistance.

I bought a phone from Melanesia that claimed to be a N9000 and has that model number printed on the back in the battery compartment. When i check the settings it states that it is a U9000 and upon doing some research have found that it is a international phone that dose not have 4g capability.

What im trying to find out is if there is a way i can transplant a 4g antenna into this phone to make it pick up the signal range i am wanting or if i just need to Root the thing and try to get it to do what i want from there. I am also considering both options since that seems more feasible

Any support you can provide would be greatly appreciated. I like the phone its just too slow for me on the connections to view Reddit or Youtube.

Thanks again,

You have a clone... It's not a real samsung device. No one will be able to help you here.
