I have got a Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 (GT-i8160L) which was on special for the Telecom network and has a Telecom NZ branding (when booted).
I am testing it with a 2degrees SIM and it connects to the network but only through 2G or 3G-WCDMA2100.
I am rural, so I would like WCDMA 900 to work as well.
Any spec on the internet for the i8160 or i8160L includes 3G/WCDMA 900 capability of the phone.
In the service menu, (http://androidforums.com/samsung-galaxy-s/258859-how-enable-850mhz-3g-network-frequency-your-samsung-i9000-galaxy-s-2.html),
WCDMA900 is not listed :-(
Any idea if this can be reactivated through flashing a custom firmware?
