Info 2 Mobile Network Bands and Oneplus One

I hope the following information is applicable for all countries....


India's mobile frequencies & bands are


2G : GSM 900 MHz, GSM 1800 MHz
3G : WCDMA/HSPA/UMTS 2100 MHz ---- which are equivalent to BAND 1
4G : TD-LTE 2300 MHz ---- which are equivalent to BAND 40

As you all know only Airtel is providing 4G in india in TD-LTE 2300 MHz.

Two types of LTE -- FDD LTE , TDD LTE (NEW China Standard mainly)

TD-LTE -- Time-division Long-Term Evolution
LTE TDD -- LTE Time-Division Duplex
TDD LTE -- Time-Division Duplex LTE
All above 3 are same I guess...

And the main stream LTE is called FDD-LTE - Frequency-Division Duplex LTE
-------------------------------------------------------------------

OPO International Bands are ----
-------------------------------------------------------------------
2G: GSM: 850, 900, 1800, 1900MHz

3G: WCDMA: Bands: 1/2/4/5/8
-- Which are equivalent to --- 2100 /1900 / 1700 / 850 / 900 MHz ( Frequencies)

4G: LTE: Bands: 1/3/4/7/17/38/40
-- Which are equivalent to --- FDD 2100/ FDD 1800/ FDD 1700/ FDD 2600 / FDD 700 b c / TDD 2600 / TDD 2300


OPO Chinese Bands are ----
-------------------------------------------------------------------
2G: GSM 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900 MHz

3G: WCDMA: 2100 / 1900 / 850 / 900 MHz
TD-SCDMA:1880-1920/2010-2025MHz
-- Which are equivalent to --- 1/2/5/8/39/34

4G: FDD-LTE :2100/1800/2600 MHz
TD-LTE:1880-1920/2300-2400/2570-2620MHz
-- Which are equivalent to --- 1/3/7/39/40/38
-------------------------------------------------------------------

So for India Both versions should work with all available telecom providers.

Let me know your thoughts guys...

Default No 4G on OPO in India

I thought of buying one, but seeing that it uses FDD LTE instead of TD, 4G will not work on this device in India.

WIND Mobile in Canada uses AWS Bands 1700/2100 in Canada. This phone is compatible with 4G 2100 as it shows, but not 1700. Do you think I will have 4G connectivity? Or 3G?

I bought one one from Lenteen and the 4G works perfectly in France with SFR

Does anyone know if flashing CM11S onto China OnePlus Ones will unlock the international bands? The CM11S factory image has a radio image. CM11 builds also include a radio.

Asking because I'm not receiving LTE signal on my China OPO that I've flashed to CM. Then again I have yet to try my SIM on another LTE enabled device...

I've flashed Chinese OnePlus ONE with CM 11S and am still missing the AWS bands (Wind, Mobilicity, T-Mobile USA)

I asume you flashed it with fastboot and not with recovery right?

Well, yes and no. I brought back 3 Chinese OPO from Beijing, and flashed the first via fastboot while transiting in Tokyo - that one would NOT work in any of the Japanese carriers (using two different SIM - Fido from Canada and TuneTalk from Malaysia) while Samsung Galaxy S3 worked fine. The second one I flashed once back in Canada via the standard recovery method as described by GizChina, and that one does not work on AWS band when tested with Wind Mobile SIM while Fido & Speakout SIMs worked awesome

Given my Japanese experience I'm not inclined to think the fastboot flash is any better than standard recovery flash
