Is your phone called the Micromax a350 Canvas Knight? If so, I'm sorry, but your phone DOESN'T support 4G, according to the specs sheet found on gsmarena. Don't be excited to see the LTE in the *#*#4636#*#* options, because that menu lists all the possible bands there is, although your phone might not support all or some of them. The maximum you can ...

As far as phone calls are concerned, when you use SIM1 for a phone call, SIM 2 will be unavailable to receive calls or messages. Anybody that tries to call, the call will not go through. As far as Data connection is concerned, when you use SIM1 for Data, and you get a call on SIM2, data connection is automatically put on hold, and will continue when the ...

If you keep your mobile data off, it rather depends on coverage: Good 2G coverage? Use that. Your battery will last much longer. Shaky 2G but stable 3G? Use 3G. Same reason: shaky coverage makes the phone permanently switch cell towers, which eats your battery. 2g & 3G shaky, but stable LTE? Well, you guess it. For a more detailed answer backed by ...

Always try to look at the specs directly from the manufacturer. Sony says LTE is supported on some variants of the device. CyanogenMod doesn't really have anything to do with it, since the radio code is not usually open-source and is not bundled with CM. GSM Arena is another good place to get device specs.

I followed the procedure said in a XDA forum (the very first post) and I got the LTE working in my phone. I confirmed the same and added a confirmation to that thread as: I am using Nexus 5 (D820) purchased in USA and being used in Chennai on Airtel network. I read through many resources about the LTE bands that the phones (D820 and D821) support, ...

No. Keep the phone, it's all right. You will get 4G if your APN settings are configured correctly and you have a working 4G plan. But for your information, what T-Mobile calls "4G" is actually a kind of enhanced 3G (HSPA+) whereas "real" 4G is LTE. This phone can access 4G in India, on a hardware basis it should be capable of accessing 4G in the US, unless ...

This would be messy for a comment, so consider it a partial answer. The following task can stop or disconnect a WiFi if the signal level is below your preferred level.

I got this working today. I bought an Asus RT-AC68P router. It works out of the box. I just connected my phone to the router's USB 3.0 port using a normal phone usb cable (same one used for charging, etc.). All Asus routers have the same firmware, so this should work "out of the box" with any new-ish Asus router. I am not impressed with the Asus setup ...

Chances are most likely that the SIM card you are using is not LTE enabled. You can check with the service provider on upgrading the SIM. Once the SIM is upgraded, install Open Signal application in the phone and test for 4G signal coverage.

You can find the frequency of a device (as long as it was sold in the USA) by searching the devices FCC ID. This is a unique identifier used for authorizing the device to transmit at licensed frequencies. The Padfone X has two FCC IDs, so you will have to figure out which one applies (try checking under the battery cover): MSQT00S, MSQT00D
