I'm confused by your query, I've just bought this phone from an eBay seller (wish I'd researched beforehand, but hey oh) and will also be using it on the Three-UK network when it arrives. I'm convinced it should work on 4G though since I believe Three UK is using the 1800mhz (correct me if I'm wrong) band for 4G which this phone definitely supports. Other than that, have you had any other signal issues in general?

2G GSM

B10 (E-GSM 900MHz), B13 (DCS 1800MHz), B14 (PCS 1900MHz)

3G UMTS

B1 (IMT 2100MHz), B2 (PCS 1900MHz), B5 (US 850MHz Cellular)

4G LTE

B1 (2100), B3 (1800), B5 (850), B7 (2600)

Three UK
2100*MHzUMTS/HSDPA/HSPA+/DC-HSPA+
3G 800*MHz LTE*
4G 1800*MHz LTE

Could you help with some of the additional settings please? The Phone is LG-Uplus branded and is set by them to always be in roaming mode when I am in the UK. If possible I would like to make the UK my home network. Under Data Setting there is a submenu called Roaming Realm. Entering this opens a dialogue box with Cancel and OK buttons. Would you know what to enter here to set the United Kingdom as my home country?

Many thanks,
Chuffbabt

Hi,

Overall I am really pleased with the phone, and the reception has generally been excellent but I have never managed to get it working on 4G. I can't say I have spent a lot of time trying, because there is no 4G signal where I live anyway.

It may well be hardware compatible, but the connection settings imposed by the Korean issuer will not allow 4G in any country it sees as roaming (ie not Korea). It works fine with Three in the UK and I have used it extensively abroad on Three's Feel at Home contract without any problems.

If you do come across any sort of firmware update that allows 4G in the UK, it would be great if you could let me know.

Thanks,
Chuffbaby
