    I just realized that for the past 2 years, my Galaxy Note 9 utilized only 2/3G

    I bought an unlocked/international SM-N960U1 off ebay.

    Can this particular model harness 4/5 G?

    Hey, thanks for your quick reply.

    Does this screenshot attachment indicate 4G or nah?

    I'm not sure what "LTE" means exactly. I heard (years ago) that it indicated not really 4G or 5G.

    I would assume that your Note 9 should still be fine for awhile as long as you are on 4G. I honestly don't see 4G going away any time soon. I would be more concerned with lack of security updates after 2022 honestly.
