    Have you ever wondered why your phone doesn't work nearly as well when you travel?
    Or tried to change carriers only to be told that you'd need to buy a different version of your high end phone for it to work properly?
    It's happened to a lot of us and there is no good reason for it. Other than greedy carriers that is.

    Most phones should work on a lot more bands. And have good reception when roaming. The S5 in particular is one of the first phones that is fully capable of working on every GSM and LTE frequency in the world. So.. why doesn't it actually do that? Well because your carrier doesn't want to make it easy for you to leave. And because Samsung and other manufacturers want to force you to buy a new phone everytime you change telephone companies. So they put restrictions in your phone to limit how many bands you can use. Wouldn't you rather have your phone work on all carriers?

    This link will show you how to do that.

    With last ROM you have to do every restart/reboot and you still don't have band 20 (800) needed in europe :(
