Default [Q] SM-G900V to SM-G900F

Hi!,

I have a SM-G900V from Verizon and everything looks ok except that I cannot get an LTE signal. The tech from my local carrier (Smart PH) said that the LTE Freq is ok but the SM-G900V is on bandwidth 2 and it needs to be on bandwidth 1. I checked the local S5's here and it has SM-G900F on them.

Can I download an SM-G900F from anywhere and flash it on my SM-G900V? Will there be problems?

Thanks!!!!

If you try to flash a G900F official ROM with ODIN, it will not allow it since it will recognize the model difference.
Rooting your phone, installing a custom recovery and flashing a G900F ROM this way (not an official ROM ) is probably the only way.
HOWEVER, although they are probably identical hardware-wise, there is an extremely high risk that you will damage the device.

the 900F supports the following bands:
LTE 800 / 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900 / 2100 / 2600 - SM-G900F

the 900V supports :
LTE 700 MHz Class 13 / 1700 / 2100 - SM-G900V

which are different bands, not sure just rooting and trying to flash an F modem to the V will do but i believe that it will be EXTREMELY risky

Hi there,
So there are no idea how to do a custom rom as G900F to flash it on G900V?

I have an iPhone from verizon and it's work with LTE 4G here with me, but the samsung S5 verizon also they have the same bands, but I can't get a 4G coverage!

Please anyone can provide us a rom same as G900F
Thanks
