    Exclamation My Galaxy S5 Sm-G900F is stuck on HSPA+ And Has Tmobile LTE bands PLEASE HELP!

    Hey Guys I have a galaxy s5 internationally unlocked version! It should support 4G LTE since it has Tmobiles bands. I set it to LTE/WCDMA/GSM since that was the only option that has LTE in it but I have never been able to connect to LTE. I'm usually alway on EDGE or HSPA or HSPA+. I wanna be able to connect to 4G or 4G LTE. Can you guys help me fix this problem? I'm kinda a noob at this so please explain.! Thanks!

    Welcome to AC
    Have you checked that it supports all of the same LTE bands? If it only has some, then you might just not be in a market where they aren't using one of the supported bands.
    Is there anyone else with a T-Mobile S5 you can compare with to see if they are getting LTE?

    According to the specs, the only overlap that the G900F has with T-Mobile's LTE spectrum is with Band 2, which is not a major band for T-Mobile. Band 4 is T-Mobile's backbone, and Band 12 is growing, neither of which is supported by the G900F.
