Found this and it listed all the GSM UMTS and LTE bands that LG-V522 support http://www.devicespecifications.com/en/model/9e5a4015
I'm pretty sure that the band/freq specs have been posted here before but thanks especially for the link to http://www.devicespecifications.com/. It seems like the most comprehensive site of its kind. I've bookmarked it.

Actually they (devicespecifications) were not completely correct, as they missed UMTS band 1 (according to the fido web site),
so it makes this tabby very well equipped for roaming internationally, including Europe, both UMTS and LTE.
Could not be happier with this little tech beauty :)

Is Band 1 2100? It should work in Japan too? I am thinking if I should get a data sim or pocket wifi when I visit Japan. Tia Much appreciate if people who has success using this overseas with sim, please post here. tia again

One thing is certain. The major players (like Apple Samsung, itune...) do not like the idea of 2 Tb of SD card of LG. They also dislike real battery too which is what consumers want (e.g. LG V20)

FYI, if you are planning to sell your Gpad, make sure to remove your password (pin, pattern etc) and google account before resetting it, otherwise the buyer will not be able to set it up for use without your google account.

For anyone who can't wait till December to unlock it and looking for cheap unlock code, I just used the following unlocker to unlock my second hand pad and it only took a few hours and is US$1.50.

Just updated my 2nd hand LG to nougat, after reset within settings, everything works fine except wifi 5ghz is not stable, did a hard reset instead and all is fine now.

I've started to get some issues with my G tab 3, it got drained and won't charge anymore. I'm trying to find a way to disassembly it but I found nothing about that. Maybe you guys got some info on how to?

When plugged-in, the screen flashes with a weird corruption kind of flash, left it to charge at night and no change this morning.

Thanks!
