If Metro really did pull the plug, that's a pretty chickenshit move on their end.

I wanted the boost but I didn't need it. I've had decent internet speeds ever since switching to 1x only rather than 1x/3g auto on my Optimus M.

Going back to MOB IP fixes the issue, with all the slowness and timeouts it brings. LOL

How is it a chickenshit move on their end? They purposely cap the bandwidth for obvious reasons.

The crazy part is I did mine and my wife's. But I have only had to switch mine back hers is still working on simple. Of course now someone from metro will read this and fix that. But I hope not as she lives on facebook....

Update.

PRL 3027 is to blame for this random change. So now for some OP M owners (including myself) 3G doesnt work on either mode.

I updated my PRL to 2027 but still don't have Data... This is some Metro bullsh*t... Apparently, on the Admire forums, they're saying it should be back to working in a few days, due to Metro updating their 3G network... I guess I'll try it next week and see.

maybe try downgrading to 3025, 3027 might be the problem and maybe 3026 also has problems, 3026 had more problems than 3025 anyways...
