I just got my htc one unlocked, but am having problems receiving hspa+ data with my Straight talk sim (t-mobile). It's always on edge even though on my nexus 4 I was getting hspa+ in the same locations. I'm coming from a Nexus 4 and had no issues with that. Anyone know of a solution ? I need some help.
Device(s): - T-Mobile Defy on AT&T 850/3G, or on T-Mo
- AT&T Galaxy Note on AT&T
- T-Mobile Gal Tab 7.0 Plus on
