Just wanted to share this with others on enabling LTE on your phone. I own a Galaxy 2 LTE and followed the instructions from this site: http://blackapplecellular.com/apn-settings/fido-ap
Hope this helps!
Here is how to add the Fido Access Point Name (APN) setting into your Android Device so that you may connect to the internet with your wireless data plan.
MMS (Picture & Video Messaging Settings):
NOTE: The created APN will show up on the APNs screen. To activate the APN, tap on the radio button located in front of APN.

I've done this on my Samsung Note 2 (international vers, N7105) but it still doesn't work. I also tried calling Fido, as well as playing around with the APN settings without success.
Any other solutions? I realize that N7105 only runs on the 2600 band while Fido uses 2100 and 2600, so I won't get as much coverage (?). It hasn't worked even in downtown though.
Have you tried enabling data roaming on your phone? It owuld be in settings > wireless & networks > mobile networks. Also, ensure data is enabled in the settings.
If you have tried this, please let us know what happens in more detail.

I have the Samsung Galaxy S3 International Edition (IGT - 9300) And there is no LTE. It just keeps going from H+ to 3G. Nothing else. I take it to a Fido booth and they dont know the problem. And I am sure 100%, this device runs LTE. What is the problem?

Hi there Mohannad,
The S3 is indeed an LTE phone. Are you sure you have an LTE SIM?

Yes it is an LTE Sim.... But I found what the problem was.
When I called customer service, they had a some sort of rule that says "LTE ONLY WORKS ON FIDO PHONES" and clearly my phone is not a Fido phone.
I bought this phone from the Middle East, from the Samsung Compnay itself, so its Factory unlocked, and I got LTE in Britian and Germany. But it did not work in Fido because of that reason.
Hopefully in the future Fido will remove that stupid restriction and allow all phones to work on LTE

I have a galaxy s3, international version, using $57 plan, the one that says LTE ready with microSIM with LTE. Did everything above... still not working. My samsung still appear with H+ or 3G... what should I do?

Hey Fido Stephen,
Yes I added the LTE APN settings.
Here are the frequencies on my phone:
2G Network GSM 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900
3G Network HSDPA 850 / 900 / 1900 / 2100
4G Network LTE (regional)
Well, I cancelled the LTE sim and went back to the old one. And now, I cant reactivate it. I have to buy a new one.
Most of the customer service representatives I have talked to, did not even know what my phone is, or capable of doing, as its an "International Version".
