S5 help
 
Is there a way to get an S5 to work on Wind? I just bought an S5 and it does not have 1700mhz frequency. I had bought an S4 before but the guy did some firmware update to have it work for WIND. Anyone has any suggestions?

Was wondering if there is a firmware update that can be done for S5?

maybe there's a cyanogen install that will work? Its a decent OS with tons of support. CyanogenMod | Android Community Operating System

Can you please see what model of S5 you have? It's in the back when battery is removed.

You have the 3G variant only phone then. You need the SM-G900T (T-Mobile) or SM-G900W8 (Canada version) to work with Wind.
