I'm a bit of a noob when it comes to mobiles phones and I just bought a Xperia SP C5306 from the US. I am located in Australia and am wondering if I can use the 4G here back at home? I kinda bought it in a rush. If there is no way I can use the 4G because of the difference in frequency bands can I some how change it with a kernal or rom?

Cheers

C5302 and C5303 (LTE) are definitely compatible with Aussie network bands, but the C5306 is for US network bands. I don't think that you can change the frequency bands, I think that it is a hardware thing.

Ah dang. Guess I gotta some how get rid of the phone to someone in the US since the C5306 does not accept the 4G LTE bands here in Australia. Thanks for the help.
