We have 2 WCDMA networks here in IRAQ but SGS2 I9100 cannot find any of them even when I'm choosing WCDMA mode from network operators, while it works fine with GSM. Why?

  • The "Why" question is hard to answer, and rather falls into the off-topic area of Speculative questions (see our FAQ). Is it really the "Why" you are interested in -- or rather the "How to make it work"?

There are different WCDMA(UMTS) frequency bands. I believe that they use Band-I (2100MHz) in IRAQ. You did not mention which country you bought your phone in. But if it was anywhere in North America - I have bad news for you: none of american carriers use this band so very few phones sold here support it.

  • thank you very much for the info.i bought my device here in Iraq.So if the Band is (2100MHz) why cant my sgs2 feel it ?
