Question Epic 4g Touch on MetroPCS

Ok so I have flashed the s2 to MetroPCS and for the most part everything works. The things I cannot seem to get to work is 3G data and MMS. I have 1X working but it is defiling this phone! I can barely surf the net let alone download anything

My question, is the anyone in this forum who has the Epic 4G Touch on MEtroPCS with 3G working? I have the $40 plan. The doner phone was on EVDO/3G with this plan. So Im hoping someone could share their setting config.

Ive seen 2 forums out the with tuts on how to do this and neither get 3G. I even copied data settings from the doner to the s2 and tried settings from a LG Optimus M on MetroPCS

PLEASE SOMEBODY HELP!!!

Did you flash it yourself? If so, what tutorial did you follow? I have found many for boost but only a few for metropcs.

Someone else flashed mine. I have internet and 3G working. Sending MMS is the problem. Updating to FF18 didnt help either.

If you go and google mms fix for samsung galaxy epic 4g touch theres a whole section on doing the data yourself I personally did it myself and is working better than I could imagine. It does take a bit of reading and some patience but it gives you the step by step and all the programs you will need to do the data on your phone I currently am looking for the best prl to put on to see if I can get faster speeds even tho right now they are pretty decent. If you have any questions just message me and I will help you thru it.

Could you give me the link to the tutorial you found evo? I've only found a hand full and not 1 has gotten the 3g working. Also the APNs wont stick either. Everytime I enter one in it disappears. I don't think that has anything 2 do with the 3g though. I believe its because I opened mms before I entered the APN.

I have mine flashed over on the $40 plan with EVERYTHING working. With 3g working flawlessly.

To get mms working, check out Atinder's post at xda developer- that is how I got my mms working...credit goes to Atinder.

Good luck to you.

Wolf112 and chicano what are your 3g speeds looking like? Ping,dwn,up rate. If u dont mind can you both share how you did it to make it work so great ") would love to get some decent speeds. Im in dallas and I kno 3g is fully blown here for metro.

ABC guy lol (thats what i kno u mainly by . I had an admire before I got this EP4G touch") I had the same issue untill I re-flashed the prl on qpst .I also had to re-do the mms fix. We really need a fix for this 3g metro.
