Talking about frequency bands for your mobile devices, the 2G and 3G bands operating on different frequencies such as GSM 850MHz, 900MHz, 1800MHz, 1900MHz for 2G networks and HSDPA/UMTS 850MHz, 900MHz, 1900MHz, 2100MHz etc. for 3G Networks are very common and are incorporated on virtually every new smart device you can find around.
But it might not be the case in 4G bands as it is not uncommon to see OEM still launching new devices without support for 4G LTE frequency bands.
And even if they do, since the frequency bands support for 4G LTE networks are huge the different OEM often narrow their devices to some certain 4G LTE bands.

These 4G LTE bands are often assigned numbers with different frequencies; for example, we have some common LTE band numbers such as band 1 with frequency 2100MHz, we have band 3 with frequency 1800MHz, band 7 with frequency 2600MHz and also have on higher scale, we can have band 38 with frequency 2600MHz, band 40 with 2300MHz frequency, band 41 with 2500MHz frequency etc.
Those are just few of the numerous LTE bands available in number with their corresponding frequencies.
For example, a particular network provider might be offering their 4G LTE services strictly on particular LTE frequency bands, and even if your device is 4G network compliant but does not support that same frequency band as your network carrier, you will notice that you will not still be able to access or use their 4G network service because of compatibility issue.
And as result of that, it might lead you into making up your mind to actually determine the different frequency bands that your devices support.
We wish that you can easily come up with simple utility app that when installed on your device, can do justice to that, but it might not be as easy as that.
However, we have another easy method that can actually tell you the frequency bands your device together with your network carriers’ support.

Without further ado, follow the steps below to determine the frequency bands your device and network providers support;
• Head over to will my phone work with your device
• Come down to the Getting Started section and tap the Brand selector drop down menu and choose your device brand
• Tap on the Model selector and choose your device model; for some devices, after choosing Model, a Sub-Model section will come up, just tap and select the suitable choice.
• Now, select your country
• Select your network carrier
• Finally tap on the search button below and watch as it brings out the supported
frequency bands of your device together with that of your network carrier.
If your device and network providers are not supported on any of the networks, you will also see it there.
Hurray! You have just succeeded in knowing the supported frequency bands on your device and that of your network carriers.
