I then loaded UK 2.1, five files, and while all phone features were accessible I was not able to access 3G. Sorry, but I do not have the I5500xxxxx numbers with me for reference.

I think the CDMA/UTMS 850 frequency is not implimented in the I5500 hardware. My carrier is AT&T and they require CDMA/UTMS 850/1900 for 3G. Neither of these frequencies are available in the I5500, only 900/2100.

If anyone knows how to activate the 850 frequency in the I500 please let me know.


HOW TO: Enable 850Mhz 3G Network Frequency on your Samsung i9000 Galaxy S
