-I am no longer using Verizon anyway
-Can I get T-mobile ROM from Sammobile and Flash it on Verizon Note 4 910V AND continue using the phone on T-mobile network
-I am already using Tm on 910V but Verizon is terribly slow at delivering 5.1.1
-TIll today I don't get it
-I don't want to deal with Verizon anymore + Verizon ROM comes with tons of Verizon bloatwares
-More:
-http://forum.xda-developers.com/note-4-verizon/development/rom-jasminerom-v1-0-t3113771 >> this seems like a promising ROM no bloatwares from VZ
-Can Note 4 910V owners flash ROMs? (as in; I DON'T have the DEVELOPER EDITION, I just have the normal retail 910V - where one gets from Verizon retail store)
-I don't actually need ROOT, I just sick of Verizon's way of handling software; it's slow to update; and they don't seem to care

....................all I had to do was pop in the t-mobile sim in and make the suggested setting adjustments. In my area I got 4g on my sm-n910v on the t-mobile network. No problem

TMobile Note4 ROM on Verizon Note4?

I too am in this dilemma of wanting to switch to TM from VZ because my VZ 4G has gotten so slow compared to TM.
TM has told me that they are not sure if my SM-N910V will work on TM yet it works on ATT. My Note4 IS unlocked.
I tried popping in a friends SIM at TM store and the rep changed the settings, but it just would NOT connect. Of course he only wanted to sell me one of their phones.
I just bought this Note4 Oct 2015 from a third party and it works fine, but lately VZ is sucking HARD! :mad:

It WILL work. Sounds like they just wanted to sell you a phone ;) I've been using TM on my 910V for the last 4 months with absolutely no issues whatsoever. With the T-Mobile sim card inserted, go to Settings -> Network Settings -> Access Point Names (I'm on CM13 so the names might be slightly different)

From there, create a new APN, then name it whatever you'd like. Enter information into the fields from T-Mobile's website here: https://support.t-mobile.com/docs/DOC-2090

Then, save the APN and select it in the APN list by toggling the radio button. It should work just fine now.

Thanks. I use the SM-N910T and SM-N910V.
I've loaded sooo many custom ROMs on the Verizon Note 4 that work fine with T-Mobile.

IF I load a semi-stock or stock Verizon ROM, the device refuses to work on T-mobile.
(No matter what APNs are used.) My guess is the newer BL.
This is just ANOTHER way our lovely US carriers grab us by the balls and say, "Your device is Unlocked and Free to use on any other CDMA/GSM carrier."
Don't you believe them!

On another note; Has anyone been able to Unlock the BL on ATT models yet???

Out of curiosity, what bootloader firmware were you running when you had trouble with this? I had stock ROM + CPG2 and didn't have any issues using T-Mobile.

Hey guys, so I successfully unlocked boot loader, and flashed twrp. I Am now flashing the hybrid firmware. I will then boot to recovery, wipe, and flash a T-Mobile Rom. Correct? By the way I use cricket service. Thanks

Its more about the radio inside and which frequencies it uses......so if tmobile doesnt use a bandwidth that verizon does or your phone doesnt pick up what tmobile puts out you will have a useless phone......that is if you can find tobile rom that will even boot on your phone....some phones do cross over and run on different carriers....ive personally seen an att Iphone running verizon...but every phone is different and results are sketchy depending on the area you live in due to the frequencies used are also different in different areas!.....I wish I could give you specifics for your phone and area but I just dont know that kind of info....it is available but you will have to research that! Good luck!

Verizon Note 4 to T-Mobile Note 4

I've inherited a Verizon Note 4 (SM-N910V) Retail from a grandfather who can no longer see to use it. He was on Verizon (obviously) and I am using T-Mobile. I was going to use this as my daily driver to replace my Honor 5X. Obviously, the Note 4 is a better phone and the 5X doesn't really work all that well with T-Mo's features anyways.

I've tried just inserting the sim and adding the T-Mo APN, but I can only get phone service in the Akron, Ohio area, no data. According to GSMArena here https://www.gsmarena.com/samsung_galaxy_note_4_(usa)-6758.php the phone should have Band 12 (which is supposed to be T-Mo's 4G in my area).

My goal here is two-fold: to fix the bootloader to allow rooting and remove the Verizon and Samsung bloatware, and then flash this ROM: https://forum.xda-developers.com/note5/general/romtesting-t3380186 The Resurrection Remix ROM 5.6.8. This would "essentially" make the phone a T-Mobile phone and is supposed to allow their Wi-Fi calling feature.

The Note 4 phone I have is running Android 6.0.1, baseband N910VVRU2CQ12, and Kernal v. 3.10.40 from Sep 4, 2017.

The question is: What is the safest and easiest way to root this thing, and has anyone here used the Rez Remix T-Mobile ROM?

I've been reading through many threads that explain the process:

Flash a custom ROM and add/edit the TMO APN settings....
Verizon phones cannot use Band 12...BTW....
I've been trying for many months to see if Band 12 could be enabled, but no success.

i believe phone companies only say that because they want you to buy one of there crap bloatware phones its a marketing strategy or trick to lock you into a payment plan
