Default Different Ace 2 models

HI, I bought an Ace 2, and am happy with the phone. However i want to use 3G (I'm in Thailand), and it looks like I cannot; apparently it only works at 850 MHz that the Ace GT-I8160L model has. My phone, the GT-I8160 works at a different MHz, is it possible to alter the band width so my phone will work? Also are there any other differences that people know.
Sorry if I have doubled this but I was not sure it posted

No you cant change the frequencies on your existing phone.
You need the i8160L model to do the 850Mhz UMTS as used in Thailand and other countries.

Thanks mate, They sell both versions here but you don't get told that, and most sellers don't realise it either.

The Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 is a mid-range handset. It's a decent looking follow-up to the original but it still positions itself in the mid-range market in this day and age. It houses a 3.2 inch TFT display, an 800MHz processor, 768MB of RAM, Blu... Read More
