    Default UE Capability and supported LTE bands for Samsung S8 SM-G950F

    Hello experts,

    We have purchased a commercial Samsung SM-G950F UE for drive testing. According to multiple sources, this phone supports the following LTE bands: 1(2100), 2(1900), 3(1800), 4(1700/2100), 5(850), 7(2600), 8(900), 12(700), 13(700), 17(700), 18(800), 19(800), 20(800), 25(1900), 26(850), 28(700), 32(1500), 66(1700/2100), 38(2600), 39(1900), 40(2300), 41(2500).

    However, when getting the UE Capability Information message from TEMS Investigation, I only get on the SupportedBandListEUTRA field bands 2,3,4,12 and 17.

    Has anyone encountered this issue before? I need this phone for a project that uses band 20 (not listed in the UE capability message, but apparently supported by the phone) Could it be that the phone's firmware is restricting the UE Capability that is being reported?

    Thanks

    Hi

    Try to key-in this code: *#2683662#, you can check the activated LTE bands on the phone itself.
    Unfortunately, this code is not always working on S8, only on G950FXXU1AQF7 (CMIIW).
    Also be careful, flashing custom kernel may close your diagnostic port unless you have a "token" to re-activate it.

    Hi,

    Thanks for your reply!

    When I wrote my initial post, I had only tested the phone in a different country than where it was supposed to be used. When I took the phone to the actual operator's network, the UE capability message DID show band 20 and the phone worked properly. So it looks like the UE doesn't report all of its capabilities if it is not needed.

    Regards,
