Correct! I wonder if it's catching the 2100 frequency? interesting results! 


Hard to say at this point. The SGS has 850 + 900 for its GSM so SMS and voice calls shoudn't be a problem anyway - it'll be that darn data that will show whether or not the hack works to turn on 850 in the int'l SGS. According to the weberatti, there should be no chance. Something to do with filtering and antenna tuning to permit the high data throughput which won't allow the two frequencies to co-exist. Which is news to Apple, I'm sure, since the iP4 has 850 + 900 data on board.

Just goes to show how much disinformation there is on the web, and it gets worse with every passing second.

Oh well, hopefully we'll have results from 2 tests to draw conclusions from. Unless of course they're polar opposite results... Surprised

Waiting with bated breath.

Try going back into the network band selection menu that you used to enable the 850 and disable the 1900 and 2100 bands.  That leaves the 850 band with your XT sim to test knowing that 2100 is disabled.

If it works, then your 850 works? good theory? perhaps only have the 850 enabled any everything else disabled?

The "paste----" notation is new too. Or is that something you did manually?

Something's afoot I fear. New markup?

Interesting that only the poster can see the yellow highlighted type huh?

Hmmm

Right, this is using a telecom t-stick on my laptop -



and my phone with the same XT sim from the t-stick...




With 2100MHz enabled, I get full service and can make calls, no problem. With only 850MHz enabled, its emergency calls only I'm afraid.

That settles it as far as I'm concerned. 850 data isn't present in the int'l SGS.

Thanks for doing the testing dude.

No worries.

I also noted that when changing from 2100 to 850 there was often a 30+ second gap where the bars were showing a connection. I got excited until it corrected itself and dashed my hopes.

Yep, damn it, that does prove that the VF handsets dont have 850 capability, and that means we still have to wait another month to get onto XT with the SGS.  If anyone has a new one for XT they want to part with, let me know. please.........

Yeps thanks for the clarification. I wonder whether the AT&T users in that post, were picking up the other 3G bands and not actually the 850 3g band.

 




- Telstra HTC Touch Pro2 - Energy ROM WM6.5.5 20 Oct/Cyanogen Mod Froyo 2.2 - R.I.P
- AT&T Galaxy S Captivate 16GB on XT (now with brother)
- Samsung Galaxy S2 on XT- Runs ICS 4.0.3 Resurrection Remix 9.2
- Business Hours - Work In The Electricity Industry, After Hours - DJ/Turntablist - Will Scratch Vinyl For Free'
- What's next??? S3?
