    Thank you, as said earlier using on cricket (aka) Att. Only been using few days and need to go into sw Minnesota with it to compare service with my Lumia 650 cricket branded phone.
    I am disappointed that visual voicemail and hd voice don't work. Would also like nfc to go along with tap to pay.
    There is a hack to get hd voice to work, but for At&t you need to have a Lumia 950 IMEI or another compatible IMEI that is an AT&T branded windows phone for it to work. VVM should work with no problem.

    EDIT:
    Ok I think I found and remember that my model even though it is a T-Mobile model had the same bands enabled as the Open Market Unlocked model. Its just that carrier settings do some out of box configurations/provisioning in the ADC directory to utilize the bands as they see fit.

    The decimal should have been 67674
    67674 -- dec
    10 85 0a -- hex
    10000100001011010 -- bin

    This translated to LTE bands 17,12,7,5,4,2

    The reason I ended up messing my phone up was due to my efforts to enable GSM/UMTS frequencies that the phone is not capable of. Which I tried to do from QPST service programmer. I should have left that alone and only touched the LTE ITEM from QXDM.
    Thank you Nate for sharing the details.
    I will give a try on the QXDM for more LTE bands used in China when I get my idol 4s on hand.
    What would you advise to do? should I try the 17592185995263 or just the 1 3 38 39 40 41 I need?

    Only do what you need to test. That decimal you listed could attempt to enable non-capable bands due to whatever hw limitations or lack of antenna configurations and could lead to problems.

    Partha,

    Oh that's cool, you would receive the phone before me.
    Let me know if JIO VOLTE worked on your phone.

    Did the phone get any update after inserting a sim card from India, which enabled other bands for India?

    I am not sure this will happen, but i saw my friends Android phone got updated to VOLTE after he inserted JIO sim card.

    Try #3 did I ever say how Sh***y this Windows central app. is!!

    I tried quoting twice only to not have it post my reply...

    After a week my data quit working on CEll, no MMS. I can send but not receive.

    Visual voicemail doesn't work. Spent two hours over two calls to Cricket today, finally gave up and put sim back in my Lumia 650. Don't know if I have to hard reset?

    Thanks Dan

    Hard reset would probably help. Was you sim in the phone before your turned it on the very first time? Windows does a lot of MV (multivariant) setup for the sim during a first start up and if the sim is not in it that first time it can provision partially.

    PS: it is sad how bad the WC app is. I never use it or install it anymore even on my PC. On mobile I long ago installed mTalk and works great still. Just cannot find it to download it anymore.

    Thanks, yes I called Cricket and gave them the IMEI # and put sim in before ever turning on phone. The lady instructed me when to power on. The second day I needed some features and apps that I hadn't had time to set up yet. So I put the sim back in my Lumia. I am thinking that is what messed things up. Seems like since I put the sim back in the Idol it hasn't been right. The Windows central app. is useless on my PC, actually works fair on the Idol, evidently you still can't quote posts. Just type new response. Also alot of links don't work in posts, I get a message that I need to go to the store for an app.

    Ok, I am still testing but mms is working at to and from cricket subscribers. Need to check data yet.
    Need to power on phone and let cricket activate sim. I waited 15 min. Went to sim settings and deleted the apn under mms. I also deleted ndo apn from lte. Now my only apn is the active default under lte. Mms shows nothing for apn.
    Still can't get visual voicemail to work though.

    You might want to read up on this thread for help with that here. Put the phone into flashing mode.

    Run from cmd
    ffutool.exe -setbootmode 1 factory

    To boot normally Run
    ffutool.exe -setbootmode 0

    Hi Nate,
    Have you successfully enabled field test app on idol 4S ?
    I have tried the interop tool to edit the registry, but it launches the same app as ##2886 #.
