LG Optimus 7 Hacks (Possible Next G 850Mhz??)
Ok, well I've purchased the LG Optimus 7 from COTD and waiting its arrival I decided to see what I can do with this little beast and came across the ability to access the 'MFG' menu. Apparently you can access this menu and change the carriers and what not, so I was curious to see if current owners of this phone can access this.
I also found out this on XDA developers;
Wow, I was able to turn my PDC VodaPhone UK LG-E900 version into an ATT version. I'm now getting the sweet "H" in the top. It also is downloading at 4 mbps via on the phone now! Verified via testmy.net.
For those who are curious.
To turn this into an AT&T Phone:
Once in the MFG Menu…
1. click 7 for Engineer Settings.
2. then click 6 for Other Settings.
3. Select Set Network Profiles.
Select that one. Back out of the menus and reboot the phone.
It will now even say ATT in the marketplace.
Thanks again everyone!
So what I thought was maybe you could make this phone access the 850Mhz network for Next G. AT&T uses the 850Mhz network in the USA so maybe as the guy on XDA said he was able to get a faster connection as he was able to access the other frequencies? I could be wrong but would be awesome if someone with this phone and a Telstra sim could try it out ;)
Realise the top two are for the model with the keyboard but tis basically the same phone, and I know you can get to the MFG on the non keyboard version.
Im sure many people would be interested if this works;)
