T-Mobile HSPA(+) on SCH-I545
I have been searching all across google for weeks on a way to get rid of this horrible edge (2g) and have found just about nothing.
But my point in making this thread is to potentially find an answer, or share my findings on any/all info I have stumbled upon.
So upon my findings I have found out that most users get angry or flame the question of T-Mobile on Verizon BUT yes indeed it does work.
I have gotten Voice,SMS, and 2G to work (using the 30$ a month unlimtext/data and 100 min plan) I Have not tested MMS but should work on 2g.
I did find this, it's been asked but said that only 2g will work.
With that linked I do believe that there is a way to activate the 1700MHZ frequency in our phones for the HSPA but I have not seen it done. after all the hardware is there just not the software.
I have seen it done on the AT&T S4 though.
So why can't our Verizon galaxy s4's do this and pick up ALL of t-mobile's HSPA frequencies and JUST the refarmed ones?
In past T-Mobile experiance they suck on rolling out new technologies unless your in NYC or a major city.
Then I stumbled upon a WIP for the AWS band on HSPA AND LTE (exciting!) but it appears to have died down. (oh no! D
and with that I have ran out of information and now apologize for crap posting on this glorious forum. if you have any helpful information getting AWS for HSPA on our phones PLEASE post it below! I want to see this phone get full use of it's GSM/UMTS radio!
