OK.. here's my report.

Stationary speed tests wit 2 bars in homestead/leisure city Florida....

Average results of 3 tests using speed test.net and all three possible IP settings...

Mob IP only:
Ping=324. 6666 Ms
Upload=225. 3333kbps
Download=88. 6666kbps

Simple IP only
Ping=182. 6666ms
Upload=200. 3333kbps
Download=113. 3333kbps

Mob+simple f/back
This soft bricked my phone. Made sounds but wouldn't go past the glowing samgung logo. Fixed by turning on and putting IP setting back to simple IP.

Results:

Simple IP is slightly faster downloading and on ping but 1/8 slower on upload

Mob+simple f/back f/backed my phone.

1- Download QPST (Free Software, Click Here)

2- Get your own SPC Number Click Here & Enter Your MEID. That will be your key to unlock the phone and your password. Your MEID could be found at Settings->About Phone->Status ... it's all numbers

3- Got to Start-->All Programs-->QPST-->QPST Configuration.

4- Select your phone from the list (the phone should be in Debug Mode).

5- If you don't see your phone Click on "Add New Port" uncheck "Show Serial and select the port and add it.

6- With your phone selected go to Start Clients-->Service Programing. Select the phone and click OK.

7- If a dialog came up telling you to retry click on retry.

8- Click on "Read from Phone" you will be asked for your SPC number to unlock the phone and get its information.

9-M.IP tab change the mobile ip behavior to: simple IP only
Write to Phone (the phone should restart by itself)

let my know if work

i was down 50kbps now 600kbps to 1mb cool


First THANK YOU! Second, this process is very simple for anyone who had to use QPST program to update PRL previously to get 3G on the admire so doing this should be super easy and quick. I also stand behind the speed increases noticeably and needs to be done for anyone who has 3G/4G coverage in their city/location.

The test done @ 942pm & 950pm were prior to changing this setting. I had 3G showing during test and at the time of the screen shot went back to 1x. You can see @ 1010pm the speed i got here in North Florida.

3G aka EVDO will only be launched in certain areas... It isn't even truly being announced... I mean yeah, you have people saying 3G but Metro really isn't advertising it... their plans don't say 3G or EVDO...

The metro stores in my area verifyed this last year.
However the network us already swamped with 3g phones and they don't have towers in alot of areas pushing 3g.

okay so for those who cant get 3g in your area and only have access to 1x, DO NOT do this, it will kill your 1x speeds, here are my results....

Before:

Ping (ms) / Down (kbps) / Up (kbps)
863 / 70 / 77
854 / 90 / 130
894 / 115 / 172
892 / 93 / 151
887 / 76 / 144

After:


Ping (ms) / Down (kbps) / Up (kbps)
932 / 54 / 63
969 / 26 / 102
944 / 24 / 58
885 / 54 / 34
879 / 13 / Fail

I used the SpeedTest.net App for testing.

IF you do live in a big city where METRO 4G is 100% covered like I do in Jacksonville, FL then you def can see a huge improvement.. its like a new phone now downloading over triple as fast as before .. not to beat a dead horse but look at my results today i ran while driving from Orange Park to the beach approx 30 miles apart.

Wow... nice find !

Confirmed working on my end. just finished watching my first YouTube video in HD with no buffering!! took a while to start but once rendered it loaded up. Very pleased with this find. almost better than an actual Rom jkjk. But when it comes to "needs/wants" in a Rom, things like this are mainly requested.

ATRAIN904 you cant compare your results of 4g with my 1x results and then talk about how its worth doing because these are two completely different situations, it would be one thing if I said I had 4g and then said dont do it but I DIDNT, did you bother to even READ my post you would see it was directed at only those who can only get 1x speed connection not 3g nor 4g so AGAIN for those who only can get 1x DO NOT do this mod.

Definitely works. Here in Orlando, I was averaging around 130 kbps down. Now, I get between 0.5- 1.2 mbps. Crazy and shocking difference. Thanks for this. And people say Metro is garbage.

Was NOT trying to compare to your situation. I was referencing "4G area" because that would mean you have "3G" coverage if you happen to live in those big city areas with LTE already. Really wasn't saying anything to you or about your post .. i should have quoted the original guess i wasn't sober. But anyways to everyone else that gets what I was saying enjoy I ran more test's today while driving from my corporate branch to OP and got up to 900k 3 times.

1- Download QPST (Free Software, Click Here)

3- Got to Start-->All Programs-->QPST-->QPST Configuration.

4- Select your phone from the list (the phone should be in Debug Mode).

5- If you don't see your phone Click on "Add New Port" uncheck "Show Serial and select the port and add it.

6- With your phone selected go to Start Clients-->Service Programing. Select the phone and click OK.

7- If a dialog came up telling you to retry click on retry.

8- Click on "Read from Phone" you will be asked for your SPC number to unlock the phone and get its information.

9-M.IP tab change the mobile ip behavior to: simple IP only
Write to Phone (the phone should restart by itself)

let my know if work

Yes if you live in an area with coverage for 4G then you'll gain fast strong 3G speeds. Metro does not advertise this but it is there and fact. Streaming youtube surfing the net and downloading apps etc all very improved over "stock" speeds. Root, Beast ROM, and this will ensure you have the fastest admire as of now until more tweaks/roms are made.
