    Hi. I'm on kitkat 4.4.2 I9505 UK (recently flashed via odin) when my carrier (3 uk) turns on its 4g they will send me an update to allow phone to receive 4g. Will this update be compatible with the gpe? I got the phone with stock carrier firmware

    If the bands are compatible you should be getting 4G after the OTA. You'll have to check which one is used in your area once it's released

    Looks like their 4G will use the 800 and 1800 MHz spectrum. Both are supported by the GT-i9505

    Just read up on this and seems 800mhz is for rural areas 1800 for cities. More concerned about compatibly update though. Guess I'll just have to wait and see!!

    I'm sure they'll have an OTA update that makes it compatible since the phone already supports those bands

    Just got 4g with no update. Happy days. Speeds aren't quite what I expected though. 26mbps down 12 mbps up. Hopefully they will get better

    That's actually really good, especially since you live in a large city.
