I'd like to find out, if you can help me, the following information about my Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 GT-I9205:
I am from Brazil and I have recently bought this phone in the UK on a business trip at Heathrow Airport. It was not a carrier shop, just a regular electronics shop. The phone is unlocked and working normally with my Brazilian carrier.
My questions are:
a) With the recent releases of KiKat 4.4.2 in Russia and USA for the Galaxy Mega, is there a way for me to find out (through IMEI or model number) if my phone is associated with a carrier? There was no information about it when I bought it and I just wonder if the release of KiKat for my device will depend upon this associated carrier (if there is one) for me to have it.
b) My version of the Galaxy Mega is the LTE version (GT-I9205) as opposed to the other international version (GT-I9200) and also different model number from the American one. I was thunking about trying one of the custom ROMs for the Mega but, as far as I know, the KitKat update is only related to the GT-I9200 model. Would that pose any problems if I tried to use a ROM on a different device model?
Thanks for your help!
