    Hello there,
    I recently bought nokia lumia 625 (Rm-943 apac vietnam 208/please see attachments for more device details) as everyone know, lumia 625 comes with 4G LTE. But my L625 doesn't even have 4G!
    I've contacted local nokia dealer & they told me "sometimes 4G may dissabled on your device, update to latest firmware, then it will fixed. So I update to latest firmware-lumia black (3056.40000.1349.2001). My 625 have every new features from lumia black (drive mode, screen rotation lock, upgraded multi tasking.....) but 4G.
    I really appreciate if anyone could help me with this matter (My local dealer have no idea what to do)
    please help me,
    thanks in advance.

    Okay, if there's anything that goes wrong, it probably boils down to your network and SIM. Chances are, the SIM does not support the requirements needed to access LTE.

    Other than that, there are some regions where LTE access is restricted for the 625. (Philippines isn't one of them, so I can't comment (^^;)

    I'm quite sure that my career & sim supports to 4G LTE because my L820 was able to receive 4G using same sim.

    Hmm. You must've received one of those phones where LTE is disabled...

    Flashing firmware might help, but I honestly don't know what is wrong here. As far as I know, there are 625s with the full feature set, and 625s without, say, the 1080p or the LTE, or some other feature.

    im from Mumbai , India
    wbu?

    edit - ohh ur country already got 4G and ur phone isnt catching it u mean ohh i assumed ur from India as well
    In India 4G just launched and its available in major cities only including Mumbai but its not yet in full scale and sadly Indian Telecom Ministry used a band which is different from the ones in most 4G phones so it cannot be used here unless it meets the 2300 band

    both in your case , uttar pradesh doesnt have 4G yet and the current gen of lumias dont support india's 4G band ie 2300 band which is a terrible move on our ministry's part coz only iphone 5 supports it in india
    In my case 4G is available in mumbai ,bangalore etc but our phones have a locked 4G band as it doesnt support 2300 band if we flash a different rom and go to another country with a lumia band say USA it will use the 4G band there

    Hi, I have purchased a Nokia Lumia 625 in India "059T1M1 RM-941 VAR IMEA IN CV" I don't get the highest connection speed as 4G when I travel to UK or Malaysia when using a 4G enabled SIM. Can I cross flash it "059T454 RM-941 VAR EURO GB CV" and will this enable 4G option? or can I just replace this file "NWP8 simlock 3gstandard bb5 crcA59A.bin" from the Euro ROM to the Indian ROM and flash to the get the 4G option enabled?

    Regards

    You could try flashing a 4G enabled firmware and it may work (all that it requires is a change in a registry flsg somewhere to tell the phone to allow 4G ... But nobody here can guarantee that the flash wont mess something up, although the chances seem to be low of anything going wrong.

    It is not just the SIM and Carrier... There is also a software setting in the firmware which has to be enabled with a software update.

    When 4G was rolling out in the UK on Vodafone, I had a 4G SIM and account for about a week before a software update was released which actually activated 4G as an option in "fastest network speed"

    On uploaded images, from first post, it says: Chip SoC version 8227
    Is this it?
    Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8227 SoC - NotebookCheck.net Tech
    Features HSPA+, EDGE, GSM, GPRS, GPS, WiFi, Bluetooth, NFC, FM
    No LTE / 4G

    On Nokia info page, says differently ( see section: Hardware - > Data Network )
    Nokia Lumia 625 - Specifications - Nokia - UK

    Does this solves mystery? I'm asking because I'm also in doubt.

    p.s. Offtopic
    Can someone recommend good app for detail hardware info inspeciton. (I'm new in WP world - didn't found anything good)

    I have the same problem, but I think that the root cause is different.

    actually Hashan1's Lumia looks a kind of variant.
    Model is Lumia 625H and the product code is RM-943, while if you look e.g. at an European model it will report Lumia 625 and RM-941
    And the SOC is different as well, my RM-941 reports 8930 which googlin'around is reported to support LTE.

    Together with the SOC findings from Marc_SR, I think we can conclude that RM-943 does not support LTE.
    In my case, it looks a firmware problem; I have a Belux model, most probably I will need to cross flash another local firmware in order to enable LTE.
    For RM-943 I would avoid cross-flashing since the SOC is different.

    ^ Did anyone try this (from post above)? I don't wonna lose my guaranty just because of experimenting, when hardware spec. are saying that there is no 4G possibilities.

    It also depends where you travel to in the UK as not everywhere supports 4G yet, and if you are roaming, both networks I think need to have an agreement for 4G access.

    There is an Indian version of the Lumia 625, and it doesn't use 4G (ROM limitation or HW one I don't know for now).

    With the latest update, the 4G option is enabled on the Indian Variant as well. Good now we don't have to flash.
