    Hi All,

    So I rooted and using this phone out of Boost Mobile while in Mexico with Iusacell by reprogramming it... it works greatly! Now I got mad with Boost mobile as they don't want to UICC unlock the device (that I paid cash) and I will like to know if someone of you know if this device is a Global Device (Means that have both CDMA and GSM) or if it's just CDMA...

    ... and is anyone able to restore all the standard but hidden by sprint/boost network settings? I've been able to restore some but I am not able to restore the APN and Network Operator's ones.

    ... is anyone able to completely network unlock this device?

    As far as I am aware, this phone is CDMA only as there is no SIM card slot. The only way you could use this phone on another CDMA phone network, is if they are willing to activate another network's phone.

    yogem,
    According to the specs at: ZTE Warp 4G Specs, Features (Phone Scoop)
    the W4G is not GSM capable, operating only in these bands:
    LTE 1700 / 1900 / 1900
    CDMA 800 / 850 / 1700 / 1900

    cdz, there is actually a SIM port on this device.
    My device, purchased from Boost, came preinstalled with a Sprint branded SIM (weird, I know).

    APN and Network Operator are in the build.prop, but I do not recommend adjusting those entries until a complete backup has been made, MD5 verified, uploaded to your Android SDK-installed Windows machine, and copied one each to all of your available HDD. (can you tell I hate downtime?)

    Let me correct myself: There is no GSM SIM port. The sim port on the device is for LTE access.

    Guys, thanks for the answers.. my fears are now real ehehehe...

    I reprogrammed correctly the device, I got signal, I got 3G, some times 4G, I can send MSS, it works... the only problem is that the CDMA signal in Mexico simply sucks! I wanted to know if it was also GSM as I know that many devices with the option "UICC Unlock" are basically Global Devices that once unlocked they become GSM.

    I think I will give up on it and going to buy a new device, possibly GSM and then once back in the states I will use the W4G again with Boost.

    Thanks all!

    True, ty. Was wondering if the little metal pieces in the back above the battery were related to data or signal? Bought plenty of boost and cleartalk phones and have yet to see this

    there is an antenna on the back cover, that black sticker like thing the two metal prongs come out of is an inductive cell antenna of some type, that connects to the two metal connections above the battery

    I think it's for the NFC in the back cover
