    I bet metro found out we found a way to get fast speeds and shut us down :/

    Thats my guess as well. Im gonna be looking into finding a way to fix this.

    P.S. DO NOT TRY Simp f/back.
    Just switch back to MOB IP only for now.

    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.

    Over on HOFO they are saying it might be a 3g outage.

    Nope. no outage. MetroPCS towers/servers arent taking Simple IP requests from non-LTE phones now.

    More to come.

    Isn't there a way to spoof the phone as an LTE phone?

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

    Buddy of mine does a little network stuff for MetroPCS. He told me about some things related to this random change.

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

    I hope theyre fixing their 3g because i am now at 34 kbps downloading. I cant even get on the market any more without multiple time outs. Im back on mob ip, using prl 3026.
