How to tell which GW620 I have
I recently bought a GW620 while down in the USA on a work trip (my current phone broke). At the store I put my Bell Canada SIM into the phone and everything worked I had SMS in/out, phone in/out, and data service. I had a few days to really enjoy the phone roaming on AT&T and then came back home to Canada on Thursday I suddenly had no service.
I do remember at one point exploring the various menus of the phone and seeing some options to select frequency bands. I was on my way to the airport and don't quite remember what I did to get to the menu, but could I have changed what freq it runs on? From what I've read Bell in Canada requires 850/1900 for HSPDA and does not have a 3g network, so unless I can get the phone talking on those channels I think I'm screwed.
The phone is now running Boot 2.2 / System 6.0rc6 from OpenEtna, and V10H_00 as the main bootloader from LG, but I'll take any firmware that lets me get this working in Canada.
Does anyone know how I could find out which radio or frequency my phone is using? Is this something I can change? Am I just a big idiot? Stay tuned for the (hopefully) exciting conclusion where someone tells me the simple way to fix this!
