What is All the 4G Hype About? A “trini” Perspective

4g

So, I guess if you live in Trinidad, by now you’d realize that both the carriers (the people who offer you mobile services) are offering a service known as 4G. Now first off I’m not going to say I’m a network genius and know exactly what I’m talking about but I’m tired of people asking the same thing over and over. So here we go.

Unlocking the Digicel Samsung Galaxy S II GT-i9100 for Trinidad and Tobago with a Bonus

Hello all,

I was given a Samsung Galaxy S II (i9100) to unlock so that it would work on the bmobile network. As you may know, bmobile started of with a huge sale/promotion which had the i9100 for quite a reduced price. Turns out they were selling the i9100g as the i9100 to some people. Digicel also sold the i9100 at a cheaper price and it also came with a trial of 4G for a month and even cheaper if you bought it with Postpaid Smart Plans.
So this is how to unlock the said device (i9100 NOT the i9100g) which is from Digicel. (thanks fallingpixel.com for the image!)

Note, the information posted here is related to the said device and the time of posting of this guide. Links may be broken and information can become outdated. Also, this may void your warranty and you can (though rarely) brick your device. I will update as new information comes to me but you are warned!
