I had the S20 ultra G9880 in Australia and the 5G was blocked after an update in August 2020. I am wondering if anyone in Australia has the 9980 S21 ultra hong kong version and on Telstra or Optus and 5G is working?

Please help

Same problem....I had the s20 Ultra and it stopped working on Telstra. Got a new s21 in the hope it would be fine and still nothing. Checked my plan with Telstra and they tell me 5g is enabled.... The phone has b78 band but still nothing. Just been a big waste of money

Damn.... I really don't like the Exynos 2100. so laggy in games. looks like I'll just have to sell my Exynos S21 Ultra and get maybe the Xiaomi 11 Ultra or something similar :(

I recently purchased this model for the snapdragon processor and can confirm that Telstra 5G network does not work. This was also confirmed by Telstra who said it is not a supported model, but in future, it could be allowed. ETA is unknown on this. Disappointing to say the least.
