    So I recently just ordered a phone from GSMNation and they ended up sending me a Unlocked Orange Poland phone. I was wondering
    if there is anyway I can enable 4G or 4G LTE on the phone. I am on AT&T network. Please let me know if there is anything I can do. Thanks.

    You could always try and flash with At&t's firmware, on top of the original Orange firmware of the phone...

    Just a suggestion, I have a Polish yellow unlocked phone and I don't have 4g option as well, but my network does not support 4g so I figured that is why it's not available...

    I was thinking about doing but won't there be an issue since ATT's model is RM-820 while Global its RM-821?

    I have no idea, mate.

    In theory, there should not be much to it, as long as you choose the correct color in the firmware for At&t (yellow), everything should be fine.

    I cannot guarantee this, though...

    Do not risk. theoretically they're the same but i think that they're some changes (minor but still) in the hardware for US market. Better try to install some unbranded firmware for rm821 devices.

    Okay say if I flash it with firmware from India (it already has the portico update and has all 9 LTE bands which can be seen here Nokia Lumia 920 Specifications - Nokia - India) Will this mean my phone will have all those frequency bands?

    Why did you pay $800 for a phone you could have bought off-contract for AT&T for $500?

    The reason why I paid over $800 is because first the phone is unlocked and I can use it on any carrier. Second I don't want to be in a contract with ATT and third and most important my data plan is only $10 and I get unlimited data+tethering. So you can see why its better to me an unlocked phone then one directly from AT&T
