    I bought Lumia 920 in Thailand and use it in Japan.
    In Japan LTE is available by NTT DoCoMo and Softbank.
    I am DoCoMo user and I have subscribed to the plan that LTE is available.

    But my Lumia 920, LTE is disable.
    I changed other firmware but nothing happen.
    I tried FieldTest settings 'Tggle ENS' On and change 'Network Type' is '4G Only".
    After reboot I see this settings again, 'Network Type' go back to 'automatic'.

    Anyone use LTE in Japan?

    It appears that Docomo uses a frequency band for LTE that is only available in Japan, but is not used in any other country.

    I know that LTE frequency band is difference between Japan and other country.
    In Japan LTE frequency is 2100 Mhz.
    Looking at the specs Lumia 920 is compatible with this frequency(4G Network: LTE 800 / 900 / 1800 / 2100 / 2600 MHz).
    I searched in google, there are people who are using in Japan Lumia 920 which is bought in the UK(clove.co.uk) or Hongkong. I look at his blog, he use LTE in Japan.
    So I have tried a variety of methods there, I still can not use the LTE.

    Try this.

    1. Turn ENS off
    2. Reboot
    3. Set to 4G

    Let us know.

    Do you have a LTE compatible sim card? You can't connect to LTE if your sim card is not provisioned for it.
