if you are refering 3G, handful of them has it. but if it's 2.2 update if you remember it took a long time for it to come out. no one knew either. & going from this article, it goes back to 2007 when it was posted about Mtero getting 3G. so who knows when if it comes to Metro. I for one probably upgrade my phone by then.

Basiclly its resetting your data.
Heh, you won't believe how many people tried to do that when I found out about it.

I think I'm in a bad location, no 3G, only the 1X has not disappeared for quite sometime, and everyone that updated their Roam, hasn't disappeared either.

In the Indian Rocks Beach, FL area today (Monday), I, my girl friend, and her Mom (here Mom lives about a mile from us) had no service nor data for about 1.5 hours (2pm-3:30pm) was hoping that maybe it was to upgrade... but I'm still at 1x. (Metro)

Now I'm running CM7 (05142011) Not sure if the 2.2 update to stock phones will be the key to the 3G working... might be the older CM7 builds will not take the upgrade for the 3G??

Default 2.2 update 3g for metro?

So i know that theres a thread about this already but can anybody confirm that you have 3g,what location are you, and what ROM you are using
( 2.1[stock] , Icarcus , 2.2[Stock] , PG 2.2 , CM6 , CM7 )
Im looking into this, and i'll be willing to go back to stock (2.2) and see if it is true.

The ROM you are using shouldn't matter. The Ascend is capable of receiving 3g out of the box. Metro just hadn't been sending out the signal until now. Any upgrades being made are to Metro's network, not your phone.

Its a network update in certain areas. If your area gets upgraded then your 3g capable phone will get 3g.

And far as I know all Android smartphones are capable of 3G

Someone who has 3g on Metro should do a speed test and compare it to the Metro 1x and post results on here just for fun.

That's bull. Its quite clear on their manual what 3G is...yet, I hear they're pushing for 4G, nearly skipping full implementation of 3G!

I live outside atlanta and work in the ATL and still only have 1x. However when I was in the local metro store 2 weeks ago they had the advertisement up for 3g... So maybe we are next to upgrade? Oh I'm still running stock haven't had the chance to root yet.

Default Huawei Ascend 3g?

I just found out that Cricket offers 3g for the Ascend.This means the Ascend is a 3g capable phone. I did not know this. My Ascend is running on Metropcs' network and offers 1x speed. Does anyone know if there is a way to make a Metropcs Ascend 3g capable?

metropcs does not offer 3g service thats the thing. its only 1x and 4g lte(in which u need a 4g lte compatible phone). but if u look at my video i posted, metros 1x is fast enuf.

i live in detroit and have never seen nor ever heard of anyone getting 3g here thats all i have been trying to do since i got this phone. You go into a metro pcs store here and the salesman will tell you 3g? no we got 4g so i ask to look at his phone and see that it has a 4g signal but am explaining to him what all this means while he is grabbing his phone so he then hesitates and realizes he has never had 4g and proceeds to ask me what 1x means. I could not belive someone with such little knowledge could own a metro store
