Default went to att corp store loaded speedtest on 5 diff phones

ALL SUCKED..

manager came over and had a new htc.... his sucked as well.. he said att was working on the network to switch to lte in WEST PALM BEACH.. was to be completed last week....

Said they do not even give him new times for completion but indicated he sees these upload and download problems every time att switches to a new network technology/speed...

suggested we wait a few weeks to see if things resolve..

BUT ALL PHONES in the store experienced the same speed problems.. so it was/is network issues at least in the Palm Beaches...

YMMV

Did you get MMS to work? Can you PM me the APN settings you used?

It works but MMS & Visual Voicemail don't work. I know you can make an additional APN for MMS to work but it's too bulky switching back and forth.

These are the settings on my Atrix 4G. I have the 2gig 4G data plan if that means anything.

I was just reading the XDA forums (also looking to see if anyone has a good fix).

Someone from NYC was reporting that the "pta" APN seemed to be working correctly now (11/15).

I'm playing with my phone in the DC area, and "pta" does appear to be working, although I can't test it on LTE until tomorrow AM. But webpages are loading without a hang at the end like they had been.

Maybe AT&T is actually fixing things? But thats probably too much wishful thinking.

Well I don't expect ATT to do squat. You can get a APN switch from the market.

As of this moment mine is working as well! Lets all hope that maybe there has been a fix issues and that this is not just a small stroke of luck. God knows I bitched about it enough on the phone today to them.

Now I know its not a phone issue. I live in the owings mills area and the data is complete crap. I've been in South Dakota the last couple days and the phone is working perfectly. Gotta be a problem with the DC\MD towers

Seems to be the same here. And, although I saw an occasional slight hang on a few web pages (but no where near what was happening before..), the stock/pta APN seems to be working up to par. I even did a speedtest while crossing a bridge from VA into DC (nice and open area!), and it was not bad...22.76Mbps down/12.83Mbps up. I've had better results before, but it seems to be working much more consistently now.

In my mind I have this image of someone at AT&T going, "Why is this switch in the off position? Its supposed to be on!" Click.

It's switching available networks. Everywhere doesn't have 3G, so there you'll likely see E (edge), which is 2G. G is a step under that, I think it stands for GPRS. There could be random times where you'll see it momentarily switch to and from these networks, which are likely random incidences of being connected to different towers (e.g., you may not be able to connect to 4G while in a basement, so it'll switch to 3G). Traveling though, you'll see the type of network available in that area.

ya I came from an Xperia X10 that was full of glitches and such and every few days out of no where I couldnt get any data signals so I had to reboot and then it was fine again.

I got the brand new S2 last week and thought I was out of the clear for that exact problem. I looove this phone.

But tonight the internet stopped working. I had to reboot then it started working again. WTF? is this a Rogers problem or something??? or something almost all smartphones deal with time to time?

Welcome back "No Data Connectivity" - i missed you the past seven days... So not only did I lose my data, but my SIM card bit the bullet- new SIM card and no data again- at least the tech support now says this is a known issue instead of acting clueless- they "opened up a case and i should have a resolution by the end of business Tuesday". Love having a smart phone that can only text and call. Welcome back early 90's....

Have you received a 4g sim AND had att re provision the phone for LTE on their end?

If you have not done both, you will not get data

Speed test from Atlanta airport. Server location says Dallas TX but I promise I was flying thru ATL at the time! Blazing speeds.

FYI - I do have the LTE data plan but do NOT have a LTE sim card (I peeked - my card is the blue/orange one, no green on it.) And the sales guy used the same card out of my SG2 I returned so I know its not a special LTE card.

Here's a suggestion, pick a setting like kb/s or kB/s so everyone has the same yardstick. I chose kB/s because it's easier to convert to megabytes/second, only one conversion necessary.

How can you tell if the sim is LTE. In baltimore my phone says its on LTE, but the data doesn't work. In Owings Mills MD its in and out.

My sim doesnt say 3g or LTE, just a bunch of numbers.
I've had data connectivity issues as well. Yesterday I could barely navigate the web it was going so slowly. It works fine while connected via WiFi, but lately I've been getting these blistering speeds without it...




Gotta be something wrong here.. I had full bars. I know I'm not connected to LTE, but still..
