LG Nexus 4 On Sales Again At Play Store On 3PM EST, But For Canadian Only

(GSM Insider) - Last week, LG Nexus 4 on sales at the Play Store for the American only. But it ended as disappointed after Google unable to handle the huge demand and stopped receiving order after a few minutes.


Later today, the LG Nexus 4 going to on sale again at the Google Play Store. But this time, its only available for the Canadian. Sorry for those who not living there.

Although LG Nexus 4 going to on sale again, but do you really need to put high hope to get it? Please dont put any high hope since Google already failed so many times. 

Google might solved the problem after one week. Can Google handle huge demand again? Or they just predicted a little amount of demand? 

The time for LG Nexus 4 is 3PM Eastern Time. Prepare and purchase!

Tutorial: How To Activate Or Enable 4G LTE Connectivity On Your LG Nexus 4

(GSM Insider) - Seems like someone successfully activated the 4G LTE connectivity in the LG Nexus 4. Supposely LG Nexus 4 is not compatible for LTE networks even with LTE chips inside. But things might change soon after some Android developers successfully enabled the 4G LTE in it. 


Some LG Nexus 4 users successfully enabled LTE. The main point is the LG Nexus 4 is in Canada. So there are some requirements for your LG Nexus 4 works on 4G LTE. The LG Nexus 4 only supports a specific 4G LTE band only. It is the "Band 4" or known as the AWS. The Spectrum of AWS is 1710 - 1755 MHz band for uplink and 2110 to 2155 MHz band for download. So there only a few carriers that using this "Band 4" (AWS) spectrum: 

- AT&T (USA and some markets)
- T-Mobile (USA, but no LTE)
- Bell Canada
- Rogers Canada
- Telus Canada

So LG Nexus 4 working on the 4G LTE of these networks. There are no news on other networks yet. The T-Mobile 4G LTE network is yet to deploy but coming soon in 2013. 

Instructions

  1. Open the dialer.
  2. Type *#*#4636#*#* to enter the Testing menu
  3. In the Testing Menu, change the radio mode from GSM Only (it might be WCDMA Preferred also) to LTE.
  4. Some users reported that in order to enable LTE they needed to create a new APN.
This tweak required only a few steps. So you might try and get your luck on. Since the LG Nexus 4 is 4G LTE enabled, but why Google never mention about it? 

Perhaps Google does not want Nexus fans to confuse with the 4G LTE connectivity since it only works at some particular countries or networks. Those living in United States and Canada benefited from this while others dont. 

So after all, you might just purchase a smartphone with 4G LTE connectivity which is not works in your country. Are you still interested to purchase the LG Nexus 4 or go for the LG Optimus G?
