Maybe it would involve a bit more of cash, but certainly it would eliminate the need for guess working. You see, smartphones are rather delicate when it comes to modifying their nature, of curse unless one has a good idea of what they're doing. In my case my phone had its original CSC (Country Sales Code)as XEF for France. Because I live in Lebanon, I downloaded Kit Kat Android version 4.4.2 but this time opting for the XSG CSC variant for UAE. Using Odin, I flashed my phone and till now it's working like a charm. Please see your nearest service center, they can get you out of this problem.

Been using Android 5.0 lollipop GPE and it's just fantastic,smooth, very fast, this is just another level...

No problems, glitches, everything just works...

Only requirement is to install updated apps and games from the play store...which is fair enough

Lollipop is the best... makes other phone look like toys when you compare them side by side

I wonder where are all the iboys that used to say Android lags...lags,freezing,slowing down does not exist in Lollipop 5.0 GPE

Even full HD games run butter smooth... I play FIFA 15 Ultimate Team, Asphalt 8 Airborne, Need for Speed-Most Wanted, Call of Duty...etc

I bought the phone in less than a week ago but the strange thing is that, the internal space is 9.25GB instead of 16GB. Is this normal or should I take it back because with the applications included is still doesn't amount to 16GB.

You can download an official ROM from:

and either flash the phone yourself or get someone who knows how to to do it for you.

Either:
1) Your phone has been flashed with a non Samsung ROM
or
2) Your phone is a fake

Just because you have inserted a 4G card that doesn't mean that 4G is available.
4G only works if your carrier supports it. Ask your supplier if they support 4G in your area.

> In reply to Haris Khan @ 2014-12-20 11:41 from PGh{ - click to readHi Harry. I believe the solution exists for your problem. It looks like your S4 is still running on Android Jellybean 4.3. I had the very same problem a few of months ago, then once I moved up to Kit Kat 4.4.2, the LTE option appeared and it works fine till now. On top of that, the phone which was already a superb phone only got better and faster. Try to visit your nearest Samsung service center, and tell them about it, surely your not far off the solution. Cheers.

I purchased a Samsung Galaxy S4 i9505 and installed a 4G SIM card.

When I tried to activate 4G/LTE I find that the phone does not provide me 4G/LTE capability.

Here's what Network Mode only shows;

WCDMA/GSM
WCDMA only
GSM only

what can i do to get 4G/LTE?

Any advice will be appreciated. Thanks
