Unless the device has a radio chip that supports the 1700/2100 MHz spectrum for their LTE, it won't pick it up no matter how much software modification you do on it.

There's a big thread about TMobile LTE on the xda i717 forum; also an article somewhere about one picking up LTE out west, hopefully stock!

The answer appears to be yes. This is roughly North and Ashland, Chicago. I saw it getting on the highway and then again getting off on our way back about 4 hours later.


I also saw some really weird upload speeds, from 30 to 70, with normal upload speeds a few days before. I don't know what to make of that.

Stock rooted, unlocked i717 with a prepaid TMobile sim. No roms, no radios, no nothin.

I'm thinking of getting a note (i717). I'm hoping I can get decent speeds and unlocking to Tmobile.

Unlocked my Gnote (i717) and I have TMobile running. I need to post screenshots of it picking up 4G LTE. I get the same icon and speedtest info (Network showing as LTE) that bob posted above. Stock and unrooted.

Nope, Gingerbread. Don't really want stock ICS or stock JB

Having problems trying to root (won't connect to my laptop). Speeds are fast, though. As good as my Amaze (HSPA+)
