The prl is downloadable from a link someone posted in this thread earlier. It'll be the 3020.prl in blue text. As for the lgnpst, you need to be sure to get the lab version and not the store. there is a thread posted by andyo and it gives you a link to download a rar file. However since it is a cracked version, you must follow the read me file or else you will not get it to work.

Some markets will never see this 3G. Depends on where you live. Metro will NEVER announce it as it will make all the other customers mad.

You opened up the wrong one, go to C:/LGelectronics/LGNPST/ in your hardrive and look for the application file that DOESNT have "General" in it.

If metro never announced it, how is what you or anyone in that other forum say/s reliable information? Still sounds like speculation to me.

So, the whole issue is moot, because I was just curious anyway, since, like I said, I already got the information a while back via CDMA workshop. Have I made it clear this time?

EDIT: The above probably seems unkind. I was irritated because by what you had asked and said to me, it seems as if you hadn't read what I originally stated about my efforts in trying your suggestions.
Sorry, I thought you said the site gave you the wrong spc.

I guess a bit of misunderstanding thats all.

Chazz if you look at my photo I have 700kb/s download speed, that is not too bad. Though for how long I have no idea.

if your not getting any faster speeds they may have it capped where you are, hell it may be they are systematically capping it everywhere they turned it on.

I was having a problem with text messages going through as well, at first. Unfortunately I can't write more right now (I'm at work), but it did clear up.

What part of north DFW? I'm over in Garland and am getting it. I first saw it about a week ago. I've found though, when I goto the Marsh and Forest lane areas, I don't get it. Also the Hillcrest Beltline areas I don't get it. I haven't been over to Richardson yet to see about it there.

Nah. I head over to those areas frequently (my in-laws live near the Hillcrest/Beltline intersection and my brother-in-law lives near Marsh/Forest Lane area). Also, for my job (I work for IBM repairing servers), I travel a bit.

Come on. Cool your panties of bro's. Not trying to be mean or anything here, and dont get me wrong. If YOU were a phone company, with some phones capable of 3g and US as costumers, im pretty sure you would get 3g too. Some on please, speed test? Im in Atlanta Georgia. Ga's capital, and i got no 3g. As soon as i get it, i'll make sure to get some speed tests, and screenshots to prove it for ga. I wish i can get the 3g, my phone would be nicer lol and also i use my wirelesss tether, 3g sounds goooood lol

what's funny/sad is that the rest of the whole damn country has 3G. Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but it's only still a novelty to Boost and Metro users lol.

Metro employees dont know jack sh*t. I went into a corporate store the other day. Had one employee tell me "Oh we have 3g. Let me show you some phones" (I never told her what phone I have) She then showed me the Ascend and the Optimus then turned to another employee and ask what other 3g phones they had. The other employee says "What? We dont have 3g. We have 1x and 4g LTE. We skipped 3g completely" I then asked the employee well why am I seeing Metro phones with 3g? He repeated "We dont have 3g. We have 1x and 4g LTE. We skipped 3g completely" I then asked him well why is Metro getting that new Samsung phone that is 3g. The guy then turned into an A-Hole and said " SIR! We dont have 3g. We have 1x and 4g LTE. We skipped 3g completely and we're not getting any new Samsung 3g phone." and then I was alright whatever dude. So I can tell you right now MetroPcs employees dont know jacksh*t. And this is a corporate store not a franchised store.

I'll ask you though--what samsung 3g phone are you talking about? sounds like you were just trying to screw with him for no good reason.

EDIT: Officially, metro doesn't have 3g. and considering that so few do, and out of those, some of us (like me) only see it for seconds at a time occasionally, it's almost dishonest to market it.

oh ok. hadn't heard about it/not on the metro site yet. my old Kyocera Neo E1100 is 3G capable--it's got "QUALCOMM 3G CDMA" engraved into the back of the battery cover. But it's a metro phone, so of course, only 1x. Man, I remember when I paid $130 for that thing. Couldn't get more than $10 now if I tried most likely. The front of it looks pretty cool though when it's not all scratched up: Videos - Free video downloads and streaming video - CNET TV

Some People Say That 3g Is Working In Orlando But I Live In Orlando And No 3G Yet!!!! Metro Officially Announced The Samsung Admire Yesterday And They Said It's Coming Out Next Month. I Think By Then We Should All Have 3G. I Read Somewhere Online That The Admire Is A 3G ONLY Phone.

Samsung Admire Leaks: Mid-Range Gingerbread Handset for MetroPCS


^ Says right there that the Samsung Admire is 3G ONLY "though it won’t be in the good graces of MetroPCS’ 4G LTE network. This one is 3G only."


Edit- Just went on the MetroPcs site. They removed quite a few phones from the site including the Ascend.

It looks like a nice phone; very similar in design to the Optimus M.

Unfortunately that doesn't mean what you think it means, even though 1x isnt fast it is 3g technology.
What they mean is it wont be lte capable.

I Think Your Confused!!!! There's 1x-EVDO Which Is 3G And There's 1xRTT Which Is 2G. Metro Uses 1xRTT!!!! So If The Phone Is 3G Only Metro Would Have To Upgrade Their Towers.

check the facts, I dont want a internet argument but when they say what they did in his post, they dont mean you will automatically get evdo speed.

the 1x is cdma, and so is evdo, that does not mean you will get the faster speed, it means the phone will only have a cdma radio.
NOT a 4G=LTE

Metro advised they would be upgrading equpment to 3g capable.

God knows if its going to be all areas. I certainly hope so.

Though I live in SW FL (Naples specifically) No 3g has been spotted near fort myers or naples yet. Rumor has it theres some spotted 4g in cape coral and north fort myers. (*228 will only get you to 3019 PRL, i manually updated to 3020).

LTE should be live by the end of summer, mid oct-nov the latest.

1x and EVDO is 2 different verisons of data based on the same technology which is CDMA. Metro phones are all 3g capable (including the indulge and craft), however as long as towers are not updated to 3g, you wont get unless you are in coverage areas (and yes, metro WILL update to 3g most of its network).

This was advised on a dealer meeting back in june or july on miami, fl.
You have to realize, most employees from MetroPCS just sell phones, they dont care about technology..... us on the other side are on the geeky side.

besides, dealer owners or corporate do not pass this information down to the first row of the sales line since they will blow sales away cuz people will want to wait "until we get 3g or 4g".


The samsung admire is the next phone down the road, then the HTC wildfire. none of those will be 4g capable, but 3g capable (or 1x depending of your area).

And further ahead............................................. .................................. a very VERY good 4g phone.

Follow this thread to keep updating the maps with 3g!

I looked up the HTC Wildfire; it shows as being released in Europe and is a GSM phone. Is there going to be a CDMA version coming out? Or am I just missing something as I'm reading the information?

Is the very VERY good 4G phone the LG Bryce that I've seen people talk about?

check your prl, if you only have 3019 you will not see evdo.
You can update to 3020 using
Tutorial: Manual update 3020 prl

I would bet you get the 3g icon

This is the one for the wildfire
HTC Wildfire S swaggers CDMA bands at FCC -- Engadget

it did get approval by the FCC to be used on CDMA networks, which is awesome!

Metro has plans of releasing it, but you never know if things will get pushed back, and yes, it has happened before on the past (like the Sanyo Zio, first android phone for metro pcs that died before it even was released).

the LG, yes. Bryce is code name, will be called Esteem.
If you wanna see it, go to a verizon store and find the LG revolution. If you hear it sucks is because all the preloaded shit from verizon which metro will not have. Oh and less internal storage, coming from 16 internal gb to 4gb.
