E988
And I don't have LTE but HSDPA+
Does the icon change from just the E?

Where are you using it and what carrier? It may be your APN settings.

I'm pretty sure it's not the APN, used the same settings on another phone, just switched sims.
My location is Trinidad, and my carrier is bMobile (Cable&Wireless)
And 4G still works when I put the sim back in the other phone ( A Samsung Galaxy Note)

edit: I tried wiping, rebooting, switching the data on and off.....even flashed over the stock ROM, still no go. Just edge.

I'm bumping this cuz I installed CM10 and still no dice.
Forgot to mention that my SIM was cut to fit the phone.
Don't know if that would affect my 4g?

Ok so I am not getting 4G because the phone isn't detecting WCDMA.
Anyone have a fix for this?
Can I flash E980 on my phone?

So here's the deal, E988 does not work on 4G in my country, but the E980 would.

Carrier Digicel:
Quote:
Customers must have a Universal Mobile Telecommunications System (UMTS) or High Speed Pocket Access (HSPA) or High Speed Pocket Access Plus (HSPA+) handset capable of a 1900 megahertz frequency (“4G Compatible Handset”) to subscribe to a Standard Data Plan or a 4G compatible BlackBerry handset to subscribe to a BB Data Plan.
Carrier bMobile/TSTT/C&W:
Quote:
You can use a UMTS, HSPA or HSPA+ device operating at 1900MHz, but to get the best experience we recommend HSPA+. You will also need a 4G data plan, and you must be within a bMobile 4G coverage area to experience 4G speeds.
According to LG website their handset E988 works on 1800/2600 MHz for 4g.
I returned the phone and got a Samsung S4 instead.
Extremely disappointed cuz the LG was a superior experience to me.
