Heres my results. The highest speed I've had was some where around 3800. These were tested in the same location and in a short period of time. I also played with the cdma roaming selection in the settings tab. The automatic setting turned out to be the best. Here ya go. Oh and 3026 was slower than 3025 as you can see in the picture.

Leave it on Metro only.

I got 3G now! SWEEET! As soon as I updated to the latest PRL, I got the 3G symbol instead of the 1X, but it still seems kind of slow thought. I'm downloading speedtest and going to check out the speeds. I'm happy I finally got 3G!

Home is the BEST.

Automatic is only when you know you're traveling outside the metropcs 'home' coverage network.

Otherwise, if you're in the metropcs home tower coverage, keep it on home.

If you have it on automatic while in the home coverage area you can notice delays in txt/pic msg and voicemails also voice may not work correctly because the phone is fighting for what towers to use.

I updated to 3026, it worked fine and in fact I still have great 4G signal, but something strange is happening. Anytime I make an outbound call, I head the pre-recorded operator lady saying:
"thank you", "thank you", "thank you" over and over...

can't seem to make any calls or receive them. any ideas? I'm not quite sure if that's the issue here.

Maybe I'm missing something.. Checked under Network and Wireless settings and all i have are the options of MetroPCS or Automatic.. Running PRL 3026 and the B update if that makes a difference.. Was gonna see if it works better at my house as i have 0-1 bar here generally inside..

Recieving "Online Connection Failure: Unknown Specified Error".

I have Installed Drivers, have 2.7 QPST Installed, when I open QPST it says my phone is "unknown", ESN and phone number. When I click on device properties it says "No Phone Connected". Once I hit Service Programming it once again says "Unknown" for phone, then gives my ESN and phone number. I click OK and it tell me the Error. I do not have any place to select anything as far as base model on this exact menu except for the Work Offline drop down list which must be selected instead of the exact device. When I added the port I know for a fact it is in COM3 because I have checked 2x, and recreated the port also. Any ideas, remember, I KNOW i have it on the right Port, know I have the drivers installed properly because I have installed 2x.

if you want to go 3025 you could try by using QPST and flash the phone with 3025.prl if you want to go into more detail let me know. although everyone seems to be good at 3026.

here is the 3025 file, i recently upload it (don't worry its safe);

3025 (1).prl

No, I know what I am doing but for some reason I had to Update QPST... had an older version. It worked so then I flash to 25, ended up getting .5Mb Down vs 1.5 on 3026 so then just returned to 3026 by *228 and now my Down is still around .5Mb. Ugh, I wanna know what's going on with the signal around here. All tests on both PRL have been in the same place. I looked in About Phone & I am in fact on 3026 again, hmmmm.

It worked so then I flash to 25, ended up getting .5Mb Down vs 1.5 on 3026 so then just returned to 3026 by *228 and now my Down is still around .5Mb. Ugh, I wanna know what's going on with the signal around here. All tests on both PRL have been in the same place. I looked in About Phone & I am in fact on 3026 again, hmmmm.
my guess would be that Metropcs is undergoing hard maintenance since their are preparing to go VoLTE and they are going to uncap certain areas as well. at least i know that when they fully release their network we will be getting PROPER 4G speed and good latency (ping)/signal from towers.

Nope, didnt change anything... i have done around 15 tests and all are ranging from 4G Ping of 325-900ms and a Down of .25-.8 but ended up getting ONE test that had 99ms Ping and a DL of 1.3 which is around what i normally get.

i will try and do some experiments, it seems for everyone the speed had decreased over the past weeks.

Yea but I am only getting 400-700Kb Down and between 325-900ms Ping LoL that's upsetting. I think I am going to end up using the LG Update Tool to upgrade back to ZVC then Downgrade and figure it out from there.

i don't think that would solve the problem. before you do anything try installing "restart connection". it restart your connection and clears up all the network traffic, give it a try.
