WCDMA settings in Hidden menu
I've been checking several WCDMA settings via the hidden menu( in dialer 3845#*975#). I've stumbled upon some questions.
Via WCDMA-only >Modem settings > RRC version setting (tumbnail below)
I only get to choose between R99 , R5 and R6. To my knowledge R99 is just plain UMTS and R6 is just HSPA (14.4 Mbps). I also believe that R8 stands for DC-HSPA (42 Mbps), which the Optimus G and my carrier support. Is it normal that R8 doesn't show up in this menu? Or am I interpreting this wrong?
Via WCDMA-only > Modem settings > HSDPA category (other tumbnail)
I only get to choose between HSDPA Category 6,8 or 12.
Via WDMA-only > Modem settings >Engineering Mode >ITEM_HSPA:0
It shows HSDPA Catergory 24 (which stands for DC-HSPA) (last tumbnail)
Do you guys know why in the HSDPA category menu the highest HSDPA Category is 12 and in the Engineering Mode the highest Category is 24? Or do both categories refer to something else?
I would also like to ask whether you guys get to see other information when entering the hidden menu?
