Default [Q] Is it possible to change the LTE band of the VS980 model?

Hello,

I've recently purchased the D802 model, however instead I've received the Verizon model (VS980), which officially supports the following LTE bands (4G): 700 / 1700 / 2100.

However, in my country, the LTE bands that will be supported are: 2600 / 1800. (I know that the D802 model is valid for these bands)

Is there any way - by modifying the phone's ROM (or anything like that) - that my VS980 model will be capable of receiving the 2600/1800 bands? or is it a pure hardware issue which is non-passable?

This is very important for me, since I'm about to initiate a long refund process only due to this reason (lack of support of the 4G in my country).

Thank you very much!
Itay

It's a hardware limitation.
