And in this country 4G LTE only work with Band 3 (1800Mhz) supported handsets instead of North American Band 2 (1700Mhz) handsets
Here, this country its support 3G video calling and 4G LTE on N9005 (this has Band 3 support).. But not with my N900T (no band 3 support band 2, 4, 17 only)..
Thats why Im asking this (convert N900T into N9005) because these two phone have same hardware instead of different software.
And could you tell what are the reasons that Baseband/modem of N9005 not to install on N900T??
will it causes to bootloop or signal issue or something else?
The reason NOT to install baseband/modem is because every region uses
a different baseband. If you are able to make and receive calls and messages
properly right now then it means that your N9005 baseband is the proper one.
I am not sure about bootlooping with the wrong baseband but I would be that
you would not have any signal if you were to odin flash a Tmobile N900T
If you change to a Tmobile N900T baseband then most likely you will
not be able to make and receive calls and texting will not send/receive
messages and any other region specific application in your country will
not work properly .
The good news is that none of the twrp/cwm flashable zip file roms
contain any basebands/modems which means that most any N9005
twrp/cwm flashable rom should work fine after flashing it to a Tmobile
N900T phone. (after flashing the wifi/nfc/bluetooth fix zip file.)
So in other words regardless of which twrp/cwm flashable zip file rom
you flash it will never change your existing baseband/modem.
Have a great day, enjoy!
Don't forget it takes less time to click the "THANKS" button than to type "thank you".
(unless you type very fast).
