I'm not sure how to activate it. might depend on which city u live in. I'm in jacksonville fl. and to check if u have it, the 1x icon in your status bar should b 3G, also ur connection type should b CDMA EvDo rev

Default For the first time ever, I saw the 3G symbol on my phone!

What the heck is going on? I've only seen the 1x symbol (which is out half the time, stupid pos) but I woke up this morning and my phone was on 3G! wtf! ive had this MetroPCS Huawei Ascend for months and never seen it until now.

its going in and out, randomly nothing, randomly 3G, and randomly 1x. is metro upgrading their shit or something? or is this a fluke? anyone else getting this?

i live in Jacksonville, FL btw (riverside)

that also depends on what area, remember not to long ago when they was working on 4g when the indulge came out, it could just be a flaw for now, but would be awesome if it did stay 3g.

kind of hard to say about that cause they are still working on it in jacksonville FL, and other states also, plus it also depends on what towers your phone is bouncing off on, you can always try *228 option 5 than option 1 to update your PRL and hope you get one of sprint 3g towers which metro are using anyways...

Did that, it updated my roaming list...looks like it also got me in a place I'm not so sure I'm authorized to go o_O

Well, I didn't brick my service, which is what I was worried about but I do notice that 1X thingy has NOT disappeared like it did before...

What did I just do?

updating your roaming list will not brick your phone never has and never will, it just update your service for better/good coverage in the area you are in...and alot of people that was on cricket that has 3g had to do that also so they can get their 3g back when it fails to come up, some even had to pull the battery for 5 minutes. Basiclly its resetting your data.

Update on this "3G" service
So i went into this two days ago when the two members (above me somewhere) confirmed they had 3G in Florida. So i called metroPCS (*611) like 5+ more time, and im not kidding about that number. Anyways i called them and let me just tell you something they have to get their facts straight,
so this one person said that all their phones ran 3G, which was a lie. And another said the ascend was a CDMA (a connection that is lower than 1G) which i was shock, kinda. Then another said that its something like the 3G service but its slower, he described it as VO connection. So apparently no works or managers of metroPCS knows about 3G for the ascend or for any phone of there's. You think it's a secret of metroPCS top's are hiding from their works ? Lol so all this stuff is confusing me, i really just want 3G on n=my phone but i guess MetroPCS can't handle that ! So is there anybody else here that can confirm that their metroPCS Huawei ascend is 3G?

I turned on my Ascend this morning and saw the 3G pop up where it usually says 1x. At first I thought I was seeing things but it didn't go away. I've used it all day while out and about and the 3G never went away while I was using data and the web browser speed was considerably faster than I'm used to without wifi on it. I live in Dallas so I can confirm they have it here at least.
