Any new list of T-Mobile Galaxy Note 2 Modems available? Using MK7 now, but the connectivity seems to be total crap with this one. The next latest one I find here is over a year old which doesn't seem logical to use. Can we use other carriers modems like an AT&T one or no?

No. You can't use att modems. Uvmd1 is the next oldest to mk7. I think it's also the oldest you can use to get lte as well.

BMB4 is the oldest baseband that supports LTE. It was released in March of last year. It and MD1 won't do any better that MK7 for reception or signal quality. I prefer MK7 by a wide margin to MD1 at this point due to LTE hand off behavior alone. Couple that with the interface of MK7 being designed around 4.3 vs 4.1 and all that goes along with it, i prefer it for use with 4.3 JB AND KK ROMs.

We will just have to suffer (I don't have many complaints) until 4.4 TW is released by tmo.

I feel the data issues I see are mostly due to kk itself.

Hastily spouted for your befuddlement
