4G Network LTE 1900?? I thought this phone would support LTE on 800 band... That's a shame considering Sprint is planning on moving it's spectrum from 1900 to 800.

....CAN YOU PLEASE TEST FOR ME INTERNAL SIM IC AND POST RESULTS?
Download from market Sim Card (gsmdev), then go to dial - then dial *#*#4636#*#* - then phone information - set GSM auto (prl) - restart and run Sim Card app.


Thanks
