LTE Bands & Network Engineering

It would appear as though Verizon has disallowed all dialer commands on most semi-current Samsung flagships (probably more.) So, since I can't bring up network engineering I have no way of seeing what it's connected to other than the obvious 'LTE' icon in the status bar. On previous (non-verizon) I was able to get more information by using the dialer, or third party apps. But it appears that Verizon, or Samsung has locked this down and it is impossible to access without root (which I'm not doing)

How can I see what LTE band I'm on? (I.E band 13 LTE or XLTE band 4)

FWIW, This is on my Verizon Note 3 running 4.4.4 NJ6 stock.

Thank you! Was wondering why signal strength on the second floor of my home was -107DB (two bars) but downstairs jumped to five bars and -90DB. As I suspected, the phone connects to LTE (band 4) upstairs and the old 700mhz (band13) LTE hence the difference in signal strength.

700 MHz frequency can reach further into buildings then the AWS frequency (band 4).

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.
