possible to change 3G network

Hello,

I'll soon go to canada and I'm at freemobile(french mobile network operator). The roaming agreement between freemobile / bell / telus, is on the 3G only and the network uses 850 and 1900MHz. But my ST27i operates on 3G 900/2100MHz.

The ST27a operates on 850/1900MHz.

So my question is, is it possible to change the 3G operating frequency of my ST27i by flashing the rom, or some other miracle solution?

Thank you

Patel.

PS : sorry for my bad english ;-)

Re: possible to change 3G network

Hi there,

It's unfortunately not possible to change the broadcasting frequencies since it requires different hardware radio parts for the different network standards.
