I purchased few days ago a Lumia 920 (RM821).
The phone never connects in H+, and does not have any LTE option?
This phone comes from Emirates, and is sim lock free.
Was should be done to be able to connect in H+ and not H only, and have LTE options?
Thanks in advance,
Solved! Go to Solution.
The LTE option has only been enabled on handsets specific to markets where LTE has been properly launched. The remaining handsets will receive updates to enable this when LTE is finally launched in those specific countries.
Connection to H or H+ is subject to network availability and signal quality. H is what I normally get here in Dublin but sometimes it drops down to 3G and there are one or 2 locations where I have seen H+. Just like you. LTE is not yert enmabled on my phones but I have been promised, I will receive an update to enable it when it is available.
Thanks for your answers.
No LTE here (Kenya). Dont know in Emirates (from where the Lumia came).
For H+, I am in an area where the DC-HSDPA is active, and I am enjoying it through a dongle on daily basis.
There is no explanation why H+ is not appearing other than a Lumia 920 limitation.
Good news here.
Phone update done this morning.
Did not write down from which initial versions i was coming from, but after update:
OS version: 8.0.10211.204
FW revision number 1232.5951.1249.1002
HW revision number 22.214.171.124
Radio SW version: 1.0.202075.3
Results: H+ is now available, 4G option available within the phone (in spite of not having a LTE SIM).
So yes, there are some Lumia 920 that are sold with some restrictions depending on its origin region.
Note for others: I have lumia 920 RM-821_im_mea3_306
