Does the T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S II have LTE bands?

By: t-marco December 29th, 2011

I just bought a my new Galaxy S II from T-Mobile and because i am over seas now, i unlocked the phone and using it with other carrier in South America. Samsung and T-Mobile claim that this phone uses HSPA+ band I, II, IV and VI but nothing about LTE.

Today, using the combination *#2236# i found the phone has LTE band, and not only one .. all of them!

This means the SGS II has the skyrocket modem ? .. i will be available to use LTE with my SGS II?

please if you guys can test it let us know!

Last Week News : Samsung Galaxy S may get Icecream, AT&T – T-Mobile not more!

By: t-marco December 28th, 2011

Last Week Samsung announced that the original Galaxy S ( that includes Vibrant and Galaxy S 4G) and Galaxy Tab  wont get the new Android 4.0 Icecream Sandwich regarding with conflicts with TouchWiz user interface. After hearing so many costumer complains or just re-consider about the decision, Samsung is re-examining the devices, MSN Korea reports. Samsung did not immediately respond to a request for comment. As you see, there is still a hope to see our Galaxy S devices running Android 4.0.

 

On December 19th, AT&T announced that it was canceling its plans to acquire T-Mobile USA. As a result,T-Mobile will obtain a seven-year roaming deal with AT&T, which in turn expands T-Mobile’s coverage by about 20 percent as part of the $6 billion breakup fee.

“With the spectrum we’re getting, we have a better chance of expanding the network in many markets,” Deutsche Telekom CEO Rene Obermann said during a conference call with reporters. “That is not a final solution. In the long term, we need more spectrum and network capacity. We are working on that.”
