Canadian S3 i747M is NOT working permanently on AWS 3G at this time. Changes are lost on restart. Kind of like a tethered iPhone. If you would like to try it, please see: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...&postcount=197

I'm just curious. What is the advantage of having 3g on that frequency? Better reception and service?

Thanks

So you can use it on t mobile.

My question is, why not just buy a T-Mobile version if that's what you need. :scratches head:

Probably more roaming options or using LTE in certain situations.

Who said this was even possible? For all we know, these frequencies are disabled in hardware.

That's assuming it'll be possible to use tmo without being a tmo subscriber.
