    1800 MHz (band 3) LTE on the Verizon HTC One M8

    According to HTC.com, this phone has the 1800 MHz LTE band (LTE band 3).
    I am currently in Australia, using a Telstra LTE SIM, and I can't pick up LTE on my phone.
    I tested this SIM in another phone and it gets LTE, so the problem isn't the lack of reception in my area or the SIM.
    I get 3G and H data but no LTE.
    I know Telstra uses 1800 MHz for LTE.
    I tried changing from Global to GSM mode and all the other modes as well as all the options available in the phoneinfo app.

    It seems like this device has the 1800 MHz LTE band blocked, what can be done about this?

    Thanks!

    When the S4 came out, VZW was in the middle of rolling out AWS LTE, so out of the box the S4 had AWS blocked, a subsequent update pushed by VZW unblocked it. Is it possible they blocked this band in the same way? if yes, is it possible to unblock ourselves?
