Default [Q] Which LTE Frequency band is my phone connected to

I've searched all around the web and I cant find a way to check what frequency band my phone is using
for Samsung phones just dial *#0011# and you can find that info, iPhones also have a way, but I haven't found a way to determine this in my Xperia Z2.

does anyone knows any way?
any app or something?
terminal command?

(4.4.2 Stock rom)

note: I want this because my carrier (Orange DO) is going to change their LTE band (and they're doing some test sometimes) and I want to know which band are they testing.

BTW, the app says: "All the data we obtain is volunteered by users", so I don't have the values because no-one posted it earlier :P

anyone else knows a way?

Sorry haven't been able to work with any Orange users to map out their LTE bands yet. If you get a phone that can access the *#0011* menu (or can grab a friends phone whose can) hit me up at feedback@simplyadvanced.net and I'll be able to bake support for Orange into the application.

I want to add support for all the Canadian and UK carriers but it's been hard to find volunteers in other countries to work with.

I don't know the exact UL/DL frequencies right now, but orange is using band 3 for LTE, and 900 for 3g / GSM / EDGE

the point is, they're on a process of migration from that LTE band, they're waiting (among other things I guess) for authorization to complete migration.

What I wanted to know is exactly which bands they're testing, because I've used a nexus 5 D820 (which lacks band 3) and often it gets connected to the LTE and a friends phone says it is still connected to band 3 (Galaxy S4 i9505 using *#0011#)

So there's no way other than *#0011# for Samsung Phones to get that Connection Data? not from data gathered

and..

actually I'm from Dominican Republic

Orange Dominican Republic,

Note: if you read the above replies, I don't want gathered data but something similar to the *#0011# menu on the Galaxy line.

If you go in to the service menu by dialling in *#*#7378423#*#* then go to service info then configuration. All the working bands are listed there.
