I am stumped. I am in middle Florida, and MetroPCS rolled out 4G a half year early. Of course over a month AFTER I buy this phone. Ok, now for the other stumper. How can you get 3G on hardware that only supports CDMA? Maybe this is married to certain parts of the country? I see on the website that the only 4G capable ones are the two Samsungs. No way am I going with that company again. hmm. Another waiting game...I hate games that are no fun, ya know?

Most of the phone are 3G capable but cause u are getting a 50 bucks plan unlimited data and voice metro will give to u a 2G speed 1x-RTT , i think this is just a big leak on the prl version cause if u update trough metro dialling *268 i think, the latest version from them is 3019 prl

it is only certain parts of jax that get the high numbers, before I moved I must have damn near been sitting on a tower.

I know if I drove south 2 miles I did not get those high numbers.
And now after my move I barely get 3g, it drops into 1x here at my new house about 1/4 of the time.

What's hilarious is that despite what you mean by that, the signal from cell towers is projected out and down, not up (that's why you can't get cell signal on an airplane even if you take it out of airplane mode)--so doing that IRL might not work out so well unless the point-blank proximity alone was sufficient.

After updating to perl 20 I get 3g pretty much anywhere but my house lol. If I walk down the street i pick up 3g and keep it around town (deltona, fl). I just got the speed test app but use my wireless around the house.

Seems I can't post links, files or photos yet since I haven't been here long enough... I believe users on the Huawei forum were reporting it too though.

Edit: If you head on over to the Huawei Ascend forum and look up the 3022 screenshot thread by kevinrubio theres my screenshot.

I called metro after I read this thread 2 weeks ago, and they pushed through the 3020 to both of our phones. We live in Brevard county Fl. The 3G has been in and out and almost always with no data. Due to the constant searching the batt life dropped to like half a day. So I am using the LTE ONOFF htc thunderbolt app. and just running the "CDMA only" to keep it at the 1X. This is only till the get it working better. When is does work only pulling 170k - 180k and I pull a 90k - 118k on the 1X. The highest I have gotten the phone to on wifi was 10099k here at home.

I did the metro 2.2.2 update yesterday and noticed that I began getting the 3G logo instead of the 1x. internet moved alot faster, then i decided to to the *228 update.... bam back to 1x. Did the the 3020 prl update and noticed that when I had the phone hooked up to my laptop the 3G logo was on, as soon as I unplugged, back to 1x. Decided to go into the menu, 3020 prl was up, then went into the *#*#4636#*#* menu, went to phone info, scrolled down, and changed the setting from CDMA (auto prl) to EVDO only. 3G on and working. in miami.

the highest ones are from the parking lot at my job, i can see a tower nearby but i have no idea if metro is using it, it might be cause that's the only explanation i have as to why i get such high speeds in that part of town.

ive noticed a trend here, those who have had the "automatic" update done (or "magically" appeared updated in the middle of the night haha) have had the 3G service with EVERYTHING working (texts, calls, data.... awesomeness, etc haha) but for those who have done the update manually are having problems, like me... haha, i got the 3g, but no texts or phone calls (sending or receiving for both) are working, just the internet... blaahh haha

If you're around St. Petersburg, Florida, possibly into Tampa, i think a 3G tower just went up, i am now getting 3G as of today. More than happy? Hell yeah. My phone only has been rooted, thats it.

Thumbs up Confirming MetroPCS 3G

I just wanted to add my 2 cents. I'm using prl 3022, added via cdma workshop. I have 3g and I can use data, mms, and call. <a href=http://s1214.photobucket.com/albums/cc495/xxmartymcflyxx/?action=view&current=screenshot-1316810967709.png target=_blank><img src=http://i1214.photobucket.com/albums/cc495/xxmartymcflyxx/screenshot-1316810967709.png border=0 alt=></a>

This happened 9/29 in San Francisco.
The speeds aren't all that more impressive than the CDMA test (bottom), interestingly enough.
The ping makes a huge difference, though.

I'm a noob but willing to read and learn. I was able to root my phone using gingerbreak (this made it extremely easy for a noob like myself). I did this mainly to remove bloatware (I haven't attempted new ROM's yet)and would like to try manually updating my prl too.


So my options to manually update prl are:

LGNPST (thanks: twistedriku)

or

QPST (thanks: santia213)

I read the whole post and thought I'd give the links in case someone doesn't have the patience to read it thru.

So proceeding with caution, my question is which of these methods is more idiot proof or has a better success rate?

Anyway thanks for the forum, learning a lot with my first smartphone. My next issue to tackle is how to get more internal memory.

Cool wow I am in jax too, close to you!

Wow what a small world. I am just on the other side of the river from you on heckscher drive.. just over the dames point bridge from merrill road.
I wonder how did you get that speed test result on your phone? is it an app or did you just google for it and use the regular site to take this pic of your screen? I would like to do a speed test from this side of the river and compare with your results.
thanks in advance,
perryinjax

if you read throughout this thread and find the related threads to this, there's a way to get the 3020 prl on your phone if *228 doesn't do it. Beyond that, even if you get it, results have been pretty spotty as you can see by reading the thread. it was a few weeks after I loaded 3020 that i started seeing regular 3g--and even now, i have it most of the time in Arlington, TX, but when I head an hour north to my hometown, I'm back on 1x. the 3G is an improvement, but its pretty capped where I'm at. the d/l speed is better while the upload speed is a little worse lol.

Flashed the PRL 3020 in mine last night after reading through this thread. The process was as simple as teh_dude's picture (the one with lgnpst flash PRL screen).

Just took a few minutes.

No 3G for me. I live near San Diego, which is not one of Metro PCS's markets, but otherwise I get great Metro service here (moved here from Florida and didn't want to switch carriers).

I will say this, however: for whatever reason, my signal seems to be stronger than before. Like, I seem to get more bars when I'm at work and stuff (when I usually get 0-1 bar).

Anyway, like I said, we're not really supposed to get full Metro service in San Diego at all, just an extended coverage zone, so I suppose I should consider myself fortunate.

3G related question, though: On the Boost coverage map, they advertise that they can use the Sprint 3G network. Does anyone know how true this is? Because as much as I like my Optimus M, I kinda have my eye on the Galaxy Prevail they are advertising. Crappy video streaming and tether speeds are the only thing killing my Optimus M enjoyment.

**Update**

Updated my PRL from 3020 to 3024 (also found in these forums) and still no love in the 619. Sigh...

Maybe some of you guys can use this:

Here's a link to a YouTube video where someone uses an app to get EvDo:

How to get 3G or 2.5 EVDO for Lg Optimus M metropcs from any in service location - YouTube

In short, you download a free app from Market called LTE OnOFF and install it.

Then open the app and change the setting from 'CDMA auto (PRL)' to 'EvDo only'.

Worked like a champ in the video, however, did not work for me here in San Diego. He did not mention anything about updating the PRL, either, so this may get you around that issue (for those who don't want to meddle with LGNPST or QPST tools).

Might work for some of you in better locations. Best of luck!
