    I'm guessing it will. But the antenna will have been designed for the best performance on the bands its supposed to be using.

    don't think there's any firmwares for the 7500L on NPS, but you should start asking people to post their CSC and PDA versions so you can keep checking.

    Finally some REAL mobile competition in Canada! Lets hope our plans and rates drop to towards what our EU friends pay.

    Hi everyone. I am joining this thread to ask the following:
    I have a European I7500 in Canada, will there be any chance of making Wcdma work with rogers? I know it's different frequency than EU but I really want to know if I can get it to work or should I just get myself a new phone from rogers. Any modification in firmware possible or similar?

    Thanks for ur advice

    Manoccs,
    Unfortnatlly there is no FW update available here in Brazil!
    We are pushing hard @SamsungBrasil on Twitter to give us an update for our lousy firmware!
    My experience with Samsung tells me they won't give us anything! :(
    Anyway, if they release something, we will be posting here!

    Rasta,
    Samsungfirmware told me this one is from february 4th... This supposed to be very good firware.
    But I will wait for any brave guy from Canada or Brazil to update first, before I do.
    I'm still paying for this creepy phone. :))

    Informale,
    I'm sorry to inform you, but the firmware they sent us is the original we have here in Brazil!
    It's the same horrible, creepy, nasty, garbage firmware they are selling in Brazil!
    DO NOT USE, UNLESS YOU NEED TO RECOVER YOUR PHONE!

    Today, after this contact with @SamsungFirmware I was a little hopeful... But, after this big frustration, I understand now Samsung does not care about Galaxy users, specially the Brazilians!

    In Q2 Google will start to sell their phones here, and I'm already holding some money to make a change!

    Samsung never more!:(

    Well at least you now have a restoration solution. Which is great, as now you can worry no more about bricking your phones, as you can always roll back your amss.

    Yes and No!
    I can now be more calm, cause we now have the AMSS file!
    But this fw is for the TIM operator! My one is VIVO which is the II3 firmware! (Even Worst).

    But I'm already defined in my head what is the future of this Galaxy!

    eBay - New & used electronics, cars, apparel, collectibles, sporting goods & more at low prices
    (I will try to sell this one, even if the firmware is not the original anymore)
    :(

    you could use the galaxy K5 or L3, and remove the cahce, and replace the AMSS with the one from this.

    Then you'll have unbranded K5 :)

    Kam,
    What is the gain on doing that?
    Will I have anything better then flashing IK5 without the European AMSS?

    No Problem, my friend! :)

    I took off the AMSS file of the European fw, and the phones works great! I mean, I do not have the Brazilian Portuguese suggestions anymore...

    Do you think it's possible to have the Brazilian keyboard (just equal as Portugal) with the Brazilian orthography on suggested words?
    Putting everything together, AMSS from 7500L and the rest from 7500 (EU)?

    I`m happy that this firmware will help everybody who has a bricked phone!

    My bricked Bell galaxy and I are patiently awaiting the file to be re-posted as the link above is broken.

    As soon as I get my hands on the file I'll confirm if it fixes my ability to connect to Bell and North American WCDMA bands.

    This is already on my website [1]. But it's not a new ROM, not even an update. This is the original I7500LUIII2.

    See you arround!

    CHMOD's file above works!
    My unlocked Bell galaxy is working again!

    Recap:
    -Got my off-the-shelf Bell Galaxy unlocked
    -Updated whole firmware with II5, then L3, then IK4... all of which would not allow me to get North American WCDMA
    -Just flashed the III2 and immediately got a connection/registration on Bell!

    So if anyone unknowingly flashed their Bell Galaxy phone *without first deleting the AMSS file from the tar* this file will restore your phone to working order!

    You guys rock, thanks everyone for all the help!

    Awesome. I feel more inclined to play with my firmware now knowing there is a restore solution. Did you just reflash the AMSS or the whole package?

    I flashed the full III2 firmware, then went back and re-flashed II5, but deleted the AMSS portion before flashing.
