    Hey Guys,

    Long time reader, first time poster.

    #1 - I am with Telus. I have an S3.
    #2 - My bills are so big, it's unbearable.
    #3 - I'm going to move to Wind.

    I did my research and it's the way forward for how my phone works and how I use data, etc.

    I was wondering how one changes the bands that a phone uses. I am sure it requires a soldering gun or an expertor both; where can I do this and how can I do it.

    Any help is MUCH, MUCH appreciated. I have looked everywhere and can't find a thing on this.

    You can't they are hard encoded into the chip. Telus is CDMA and Wind is GSM it won't work. Here is a list of all the variants and the frequency's they use. Samsung Galaxy S3 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    While Telus still operates a CDMA network in a few rural areas, this statement is not factually correct - a Telus s3 is an HSPA+ phone, not a CDMA, so it will work just fine on Rogers/Bell.

    Wind uses AWS frequencies, requiring an AWS specific model (T99something).

    Telus DOES operate an HSPA/LTE network, not only CDMA.

    You will need the T999 model version of the S3 to use it on Wind, not the i747M model that you have now.
