Did you try going into QPST Configuration then Ports tab -> Add New Port and check the "Show Serial and USB/QC Diagnostic Ports Only" box?
Sometimes it shows up in there.
You just need to select the COM port the phone is on (check in Device manager under Ports->Serial Ports then properties->Port settings tab).

N3M3515



I did that but nothing shows up when i check the "Show serial and USB/QC Diagnostics Ports only", However when i uncheck it i get "COM4-USB Unknown and COM5-USB Unknown"

dont know what to do next?

Same thing happened to me. Just choose them one at time, and look for the one that fits the pattern described in the OP and continue from there.

Finally decided to do this... I was running plr 03015. Worked just fine. Haven't seen any 3G yet in Pomona, California. I do spend the summers in Sacramento so I'm curious to see what happens up there.

i will be trying the 3024 within a few days.

Okay so I just updated my prl yesterday. And later that night I went to a party in Covina, California. My phone started to pic up 3G... pics or it didn't happen right?



I go to try out the internet, and it says I'm having connection issues with my network. Has anyone else experienced problems while running on the 3G?

Thumbs up Wonderful

It worked nicely thanks

only issue was finding the port my phone was connected to. It looked the same as the others listed as unknown. I looked in device manager under ports and it listed my samsung modem with (com6) notation. so i selected that one and the next screens all looked good. and it worked flawlessly from there.

Well its because the 3G there is very spotty, and you don't have any bars so it wasn't a strong enough signal to allow data transfer and allow you to get on the internet.

Thank you all 1000x . I am getting 3G in my office in Dallas. The 4G abomination is finally out of my phone.

Kaiser17 if you can copy your instruction on how to permanently turn off 4G to the first post that will be great :-)

Nice, your 3G signal looks strong. I only get about 1-2 bars on 3G but at-least it stays and doesn't go away so im happy.

If I do turn on 4G however, I get full bars. But I never use 4G.. battery life over 4G anyday lol.

I am having an issue with step #'s 3-4. When I select Modem, my computer doesnt recognize the mass storage so I cant connect to phone. I have tried 3 different computers, all with different OS. If I dial **28784 and under USB options and choose PDA, it gets recognized instantly. Please help show me what I am doing wrong And thanks for your many wonderful , educational, posts Dr. Cullen!!

****Side note, I tried switching the USB option to Modem while connected to computer and it instantly drops off of the My Computer, where it shows my "mass storage device" I have tried everything I can think of and have spent the better part of 5 hours trying to get it to work. I have no 4G in my area, the colsest is about 20 minutes away, so I am extremely anxious to get the 3G to work, since everyone around me has full 3G signal here.

***************NVM.... I figured it out! I am an IDIOT! I wasnt aware that the computer didnt need to show the storage device while the USB settings were on Modem. I just went through all the steps anyways and My PRL is UPDATED!!! Whoot! Thanks Soo much, now it is time to go see if I got 3G up in Cartersville, Ga. I will post back letting you know!!! THANKS AGAIN SOO MUCH!!! I appreciate all you guys/gals do for us Indulge users! Its nice to be able to modify a $350 phone to get more use outta it! Much love to u all! <3 <3 <3

ok now im feeling like a real idiot! im all the way through step 9 but i get no "COMXX-USB/QC Diagnostic" I have to uncheck "USB/QC Diagnostic" in order to see a "COM06 or COM07" port ..now once i decided to uncheck the "USB/QC Diagnpstic" box and the 2 ports showed up I chose (COM06) I proceeded to step 10 "start clients"and opened Service Programming then step 11 (i cannot click on the new phone selection window) it is stuck on work offline and I cannot seem to figure out how to change (The work offline tab shows many FFA lines) dont know which to choose and i cant choose "read from phone" ...frustrating is an understatement at this point!!!! ...if someone would be willing to help me through this i would greatly appreciate it. Thanks in advance.

If you download TeamViewer 6, I am sure one of us could remotely help you? I would be more than willing, but I have alot going on tomorrow and I am not sure when I can get on. If you dont have it figured out by tomorrow night, say 9ish, send me a PM and I will be more than willing to try and help you out. I successfully did it on mine, 4 of my friends (after I figured out where I was going wrong), then I did my Father's/Mother's/Wife's LG Optimus M phones!

This is off topic, but you know, this PRL update actually makes the Samsung Admire one hell of a good deal now. I have heard the download speeds on 3G are better than expected (have not tested them yet with my Esteem though). An Admire after tax, activation, & rebate comes out to about 100 bucks for the phone. No worrying about Indulge battery drain, plus it's running a faster version of Android, and more importantly, you pay $50 a month for unlimited 3G downloading, unlike with the 4G/LTE $50 plan which caps you to 1GB. Definitely a good overall deal for someone on a budget, especially once they finish expanding 3G coverage. Between this and the Esteem, Metro really has given the Indulge the shaft.

EDIT: Just realized that subscribers on the 4G/LTE $50 plan who exceed the 1GB cap and are in a 3G area will now just drop to 3G from 4G instead of 1x if they use these new PRLs, which is pretty nice too.

Found 3G signal up in New Port Richey on the way into work today..
Finally getting closer to me..
Seems like today is the day Metro is turning 3G on for Clearwater/us19 area.

Best thing is now now only does it not drain battery as bad, but you can now run
Juice Defender on it if you go into CDMA Only mode!!
That means even MORE battery savings!!

Now if we can just get a CM7 port.... Then JuiceDefender would prolly run great
with the 4G also, then I could use 4G and save battery still..

Maybe the problem is that I'm too used to LTE now and have forgotten just how tragic it is to use 1X, but Metro's version of 3G just seems too slow to even bother with for me...since it seems to be bottom-of-the-barrel 3G (200kbps)

Lately I have been picking up 3G and ill tend to have around 3 bars of reception. Then when I go to use the internet or anything with data... I imediately get zero bars and the connection is slow. I almost wanna go back to the original prl 03015. Can anyone explain this?

Nothing much to explain just that MetroPCS's 3G coverage isn't that great. You will find it perfect only in a few areas in certain states.

Nothing is wrong with your phone, you probably didn't follow the steps correctly.

is anyone else experiencing weird issues with their phone after installing the prl, my phone would randomly lock up, reboot or give random force close errors. I know these can happen but they seem to be happening allot more frequently since I updated the prl

Prl updates should not negatively affect phone usage.
maybe you installed a misbehaving app around the same time you updated the prl?

All 3g capable metro phones can use those steps to enable 3g, yes.
It's all about getting the prl on your phone. Once that's done, you're all set.

That is what I thought but this is not the first time I have had this issue, when the 3020 update came out and I manually updated my phone was doing the same random things. I used 228 to get the latest prl from metro and my phone stopped acting weird and I left it alone, Then I tried 3023 and the problems returned same with 3024.

thats a random prob with ur phone cuz i updated to latest prl and i have had 0 probs so far. and regarding all phones that can handle 3g i know that but im assuming i have to change some settings to upload new prl file? well i suppose best way to find out is to do it myself and find out.

It's not about settings on the phone. It's about making sure you have the right program to update the prl. QPST is for qualcomm devices. So if your phone has a duffrent chipset, the corresponding program may change, that's all.

When you use QPST, it writes data to the phone. If you tampered with anything else other than the PRL in the Service Programming screen, it's possible that you changed something that you shouldn't have touched. I'm not saying this is what happened, but it's the only thing I could think of for why your phone would be screwy after doing a manual update. You could try reinstalling your phone's drivers & QPST to your computer again and see if that helps, but honestly, 3G speeds are so pathetic that I think you're wasting your time. Just go back to Metro's PRL and end your headaches with your Indulge

thanks! 3G in Davie, FL. So far it comes and it goes, and speeds aren't anything to wet your pants over. But hey, its here(kinda).

im all the way through step 9 but i get no "COMXX-USB/QC Diagnostic" I have to uncheck "USB/QC Diagnostic" in order to see a "COM06 or COM07" port ..now once i decided to uncheck the "USB/QC Diagnpstic" box and the 2 ports showed up I chose (COM06) I proceeded to step 10 "start clients"and opened Service Programming then step 11 (i cannot click on the new phone selection window) it is stuck on work offline and I cannot seem to figure out how to change (The work offline tab shows many FFA lines) dont know which to choose and i cant choose "read from phone" ...frustrating is an understatement at this point!!!! ...if someone would be willing to help me through this i would greatly appreciate it.

Default 1.2mbps 3g in san jose

I'm in San Jose on a flashed HTC incredible prl3022 and getting top speeds of 1.2mbps on 3g. Only thing is the service is a little blotchy, I get 3g 80% of the time but somtimes get kicked back to 1x. Hopefully this new prl will help with the service drops.

Yea, you should update your prl to 3024, it might increase signal strength in your area for 3G.

Hmm... Quick off-topic question here...
Is there a way to update a Non-Android phone's PRL that somebody knows of?
Say, for example, that somebody has an LG Imprint, or a MessagerII, or even a Kyocera Domino. Is there a way for those phones' PRLs to be updated too?
GASP members might like to know this stuff!!!
Okay, I invented GASP... It's Grandmas Against Smart Phones, but hey, they might still want to upgrade their "feature" phones...
