    i do NOT recommend that kind of "hacking", as playing around with these values can easily brick (maybe even hardbrick) your phone on mistakes!

    most likely you cannot unlock new frequency bands without disturbing exsisting ones... maybe you could tune the 700mhz lte band to function as a 800mhz one... but that's just the theory

    I don't see why they would lock this with software, I strongly feel as if there must be some sort of hardware limitation. Or else OnePlus is pretty clearly contradicting their "Never Settle" motto. If it really is a software limitation, and that this chip is able to handle these extra frequencies like the Galaxy S5 without an issue, I would like to see them immediately fixed with an update.

    I would bet that's exactly why it's done...all large companies do this...
    have slightly different products and pricing for different markets...

    so the devices marketed for China have some bands locked out that are for NA/Europe
    and price the phone lower for a market with lower GDP/capita....without fear of those
    devices being exported to more lucrative markets...it's good business

    The
    possiblity of un-correctable brick in the event of cock up is high. I didnt brick, but I think it is easy done. I thought I had several times. The nerd in me drive me to do these things tho..
