eWell can you believe it? It seems that HTC are being a little sneaky again by hiding things in their handsets!
Wait, don’t panic though as this little hidden thing is one that should have US Developers scrambling to get their hands on other handsets on the hope to find the same thing then when they do there should be another scramble to make some custom ROM’s too as there seems to be a minor fault in what’s been found.
OK, enough with the mystery! It’s been discovered by an XDA Developers member that the HTC Rezound, which is a 4G handset, has hidden GSM radio’s on board.
The member who found it decided to ship it to the UK and where upon it being received it was fitted with a T-Mobile sim card, switched to WCDMA only and low and behold the phone worked…. well almost, the only thing that didn’t work was sending SMS though I’m pretty sure this would be easily fixed by a custom app or some changes after rooting the handset.
This indeed is very interesting news and so much so that I am now gonna have a 4G handset shipped over here to test I’ll let you know the outcome.
