Samsung Galaxy Note LTE Back

We have good news for T-Mobile customers who are looking to get their hands on Samsung’s giant 5.3-inch Galaxy Note. The folks over at xda-developers have reportedly created a workaround that enables HSPA+ “4G” support for T-Mobile’s AWS network. That’s taking a huge speed hit over AT&T’s 4G LTE data network but if you’re really hankering for a phablet-style device and were afraid that you’d get 2G data speeds on T-Mobile, this is some pretty good news. According to Engadget, Galaxy Note owners simply have to enter in a SIM-unlock code and then flash a new custom radio onto the phone, three of which have been provided by xda-developers. Since the radios haven’t been approved by AT&T, Samsung or T-Mobile you could take a hit on the overall reliability of the device, battery life, or both. If you’re adventurous enough to give this a whirl let us know how it works out think in the comments below.
