Hello,
I am purchasing this phone tomorrow locally from the classifieds here in Canada and the add mentions that is can only run 2G in Canada and requires an unlock, however when I Google additional information, people claim:
- It is already unlocked, world phone ...is this true?
- If it is in-fact locked, what is the cheapest (or free) method to unlock it?
- LTE is unlockable ...but how do I do this? Is there a guide?
- Anything else I should know?

Thanks in advance :)

Hi,

It is a world phone.
It does not have all the LTE frequencies.
It does have all the HSDPA frequencies.
So you might not get LTE but you would get good HSDPA speeds.

Thank you very much.

I changed the APN settings for both internet and MMS and it works flawlessly, but only on 3G-Fido.

My question is how do I make it work on HSDPA frequencies? I read somewhere there was a radio hack or something like that but I lost the link. Is it safe?

NVM - Adjusted something else in APN and I am now getting full HSDPA - beautiful. What a spectacular phone ...I'm in awe at how well it is built and the feel is just phenomenal.

This will allow you to use gsm hsdpa carriers in the USA and Canada, which are locked out when stock.
