Lordtara I think Metro is beating all the cells companies, 2 years ago it was a hell to have a metro phone.

So, you will NEVER see 3G everywhere in Metro's markets.

Late last year saw MetroPCS launch its shiny new LTE network in addition to its existing 1xRTT coverage, leaving it with 2G and 4G networks but no 3G to speak of. That'll be changing soon, though, as MetroPCS CFO Braxton Carter has announced that his carrier plans to add 3G EVDO support to a little less than 20 percent of its towers. Exactly which markets will get access to MetroPCS EVDO isn't known

No one ever said they were covering 100% of their market. Also he lives Port Richey which is really close to Tampa which lot of the Tampa area has "3G"

That's exactly what the guy seemed to be saying.

The op complained he got 3G some of the time, and 1x some of the time. The 2nd guy said specifically: "they might still be updating the towers near you." -- which to me means "some cell sites around have 3G but soon they all will."

NO, the more real possibility is those towers will NEVER be updated, as Metro is only doing 20% of their cell sites. And I provided proof, not speculation.

I would use the Speedtest.net or the FCC.


Compared to these the "testmy3g.com" or whatever is not accurate at all.

I currently have a Huawei Ascend with Cm7 Ascend-05212011 Android version 2.3.4
and Have been noticing 3g popping up here and there the last few days. I'm in Cocoa, Fl Since the Cm7 will not update the prl automatically I installed prl 3026 manually myself this morning. I was trying to figure out how to be able to choose Mobile Network type on this phone and stumbled on how by accident. I read entering this code on your dialer screen *#*#2846579#*#* will pull up hidden menus, so I tried that and nothing happened on my phone. I read further down for LG phone to enter *#*#4636#*#* on your dialer screen so I tried that and presto a screen popped up with 4 category's, Phone information, Battery information, Usage Statistics, and Wi-Fi information. Phone information is what you want to click on and you will have a ping test and scroll down and you will be given 9 options on preferred network type: also able to update or refresh your SMSC, turn radio on or off and toggle Dns check. Hope this help others searching for answers.

*#*#4636#*#* is the only hidden menu you can pull up on CM7. And it will update the prl. Im not far from you in Palm Bay and have had it update on its own more then once but always ended up calling *228 to revert back to 3019 because I would end up having data issues on all the prls.

The Android version (2.2) has nothing to do with the service. Call *228 and upgrade your preferred roaming list and it will put you on 3026 prl and if you have 3g tower near you, receive 3g

*228 has never worked on the ones i have tried i also read in here that it usually rolls back to 2019, I wouldnt dare to try it on my phone to find out

perhaps on a low 1x signal area the phone could update to 2026 by itself but i am just guessing

Hi everyone I'm new to the forum and 1st just want to say thank for the great info on this forum. I live in Holiday, FL & have the Samsung Indulge. Im in a 4G area & really never had a problem with the 4G. Lately though its been back & forth between 1x, 3G, & 4G. Today its been on 3G all day. Its good that Metro is getting a 3G network, but its a pain when you have a 4G phone & no 4G. Hopefully its because they are working on the network. Anyways looks like the Tampa Bay area's 3G is up. Holiday is just north of Tarpo Springs so the rest of the area would have 3G I would think. Holiday is small compared to Tampa or Clearwater. Once again thanks for the great forum....Jeremy

metro 3g is just to stabilized the network is not to increase speeds although a lot of people have reported an increase in speeds i used to have an lg Optimus which pick up 3g and what I noticed was that it helped when I was streaming music but I tell you 4g lte is the way to go

Metro has had 3G for a while now. They have been working more on their 4G that's why you're just now getting it
