Simple answer: No. 3G (also called UMTS) is a different techology than 4G (also called LTE). Both technologies don't share any common base technology (starting with the frequencies and going over to the encoding technologies). So your carrier has two different nets, one with 3G and another with 4G. If you are lucky being near a 4G base station you have an ...


your phone doesn't support 4G it supports 3G++ which almost 4g and supports high speed downloads , the short unswer to your question is you can't use the 4g plan proposed by your carrier due to your phone's hardware limitation. the bright side is HSPA+ is not so bad you will not notice the difference.


I don't know of a user interface in Android to enumerate the radio frequencies that the device handles. However, to give you the direct answer you were looking for, the Padfone X lacks UMTS 1700/2100, which is different from the LTE 1700/2100 that it supports.


I currently have the Alcatel OneTouch Idol 3, and yes it does support band 12. In fact, my phone is currently using band 12 over band 4 which is what my OnePlus One was using, since it doesn't support band 12. One way to check is to download the LTE Discovery app. Or, open your phone's dialer and type *#*#4636#*#* -- this will open up Testing mode. Go ...


No, simultaneous voice and LTE data is only available when using VoLTE (aka "Advanced Calling") on the Samsung Galaxy S6. See the Tech Specs on Verizon's store page for the S6 under the ADVANCED CALLING 1.0 heading: Activate Advanced Calling 1.0 to experience Simultaneous Voice & Data Verizon also accounts for this with a note in their Advanced ...


LTE actually does not meet the original 4G standards, it is neither faster nor more advanced. I'm pretty sure that it's just an icon change, but if it's not it's almost certainly that your connection is better rather than worse. I recently saw this on my device as well and used SpeedTest to check how the connection was performing. My download and ...


You need both pieces. The LTE radio was disabled, in software, by the 2.0.1700.48 radio firmware update. In order to enable LTE, you'll need to downgrade to an older radio image (2.0.1700.33 or earlier), then use the *#*#4636#*#* dialer code menu to enable LTE. If you try to use the dialer code on the .48 or higher radios, it will not work. If you're ...
