    Default can not change to 4G tmo

    Hi everyone, I bought my 99 with no contract(sim free) in my country. Last month, I moved to US to study. I find that my bb doestn't have 4G option in network mode narrow. Only 3G,2G,3G&2G available. Does this depend on ROM OS or mine not from tmo? Any answers for my problem. Many thanks

    This is because your phone is probably not T-Mobile branded and T-Mobile US uses different frequency for 3G (and 4G) than everybody else. For this reason when my girlfriend was shoping for her BlackBerry on eBay we had to specifically look for T-Mobile version so 3G would work. One of my friend bought recently Torch 9810 from AT&T and on T-Mobile she is only getting EDGE. Hope this explenation works. To get 4G of your phone you would have to switch to AT&T alltogether.

    If your phone is unlocked it should work with AT&T sim card because they are using the same frequency as everyone else. So no need to change the phone.
