Hi @defraybo2

 

I've looked up these phones on gsmarena (my go to place for phone specs)

I'm looking for either LTE Band 20 or 800MHz.

 

I have found:

i9500 http://www.gsmarena.com/samsung_i9500_galaxy_s4-5125.php

Does not appear to have any 4G.LTE capabilities

whereas

i9505 http://www.gsmarena.com/samsung_i9505_galaxy_s4-5371.php

is 4g compatible on giffgaff as it has 20(800)
