    Can you help me out, I have a situation.
    I am from canada.

    Aight guys, I need some help .. I bought a phone (off brand ) which is amazing by the way. And comes unlocked on all frequencies { GSM 850/900/1800/1900MHz WCDMA 900/2100MHz FDD-LTE 800/1800/2600MHz }
    The phone is ECOO EO4 ..

    But unfortunately my carrier Wind has 1700/2100 Mhz
    ..
    And still my phone doesn't work properly.. ( sim works, but always in roaming, so I can receive calls but nobody got that much money to waste )
    And I find it retarded for wind for not operating with one of the frequencies that it needs i.e. 2100 that my phone does have, I expected It would happen but was almost sure that I could at worst case scenario use only 3G coz I dont dont have 1700Mhz on the phone.
    So here is the question.
    Is there any way for me to unlock that 1700Mhz by rooting, or anything ( though I know its the hardware anteenas that use the frequency so rooting shouldn't work , but the lady at wind told me I could root it and get 1700 Mhz .. I was kind of amused )

    It depends on the phone. For example, my Verizon Samsung Galaxy Note 3 didn't work on band 4- 1700 /2100 MHz out of the box, but you could root to enable band 4 1700 /2100 MHz because our read simply disabled in the settings. As to whether or not you can do similar with your phone, I don't know as you didn't provide enough details about your phone.


    With regards to the phone supporting 2100 MHz, your phone needs support the same band, not just the same frequency. 2100 MHz is band 1. 1700 MHz /2100 MHz is either band 4 and/or band 10. At this point, probably band 4.


    Btw it looks like you got an international model as it supports mostly non usa/Canada bands. Fyi band 1 - 2100mhz isn't used in North America,but is used widely across the rest of the world

    Its ECOO EO4 .. and the frequencies are as I mentioned above . How do i know if the phone has that frequency or not ? I mean how do you know if that band was disabled or not ?
    I am pretty sure the device is rooted

    You would have to look in the settings. I am not familiar with the phone you have but here is how it was done on the Verizon Samsung Galaxy Note 3.

    If that doesn't help you can call the manufacturer and ask.
