Epic 4g Touch on MetroPCS

    Ok so I have flashed the s2 to MetroPCS and for the most part everything works. The things I cannot seem to get to work is 3G data and MMS. I have 1X working but it is defiling this phone! I can barely surf the net let alone download anything

    My question, is the anyone in this forum who has the Epic 4G Touch on MEtroPCS with 3G working? I have the $40 plan. The doner phone was on EVDO/3G with this plan. So Im hoping someone could share their setting config.

    Ive seen 2 forums out the with tuts on how to do this and neither get 3G. I even copied data settings from the doner to the s2 and tried settings from a LG Optimus M on MetroPCS

    PLEASE SOMEBODY HELP!!!

    Did you flash it yourself? If so, what tutorial did you follow? I have found many for boost but only a few for metropcs.

    Someone else flashed mine. I have internet and 3G working. Sending MMS is the problem. Updating to FF18 didnt help either.

    If you go and google mms fix for samsung galaxy epic 4g touch theres a whole section on doing the data yourself I personally did it myself and is working better than I could imagine. It does take a bit of reading and some patience but it gives you the step by step and all the programs you will need to do the data on your phone I currently am looking for the best prl to put on to see if I can get faster speeds even tho right now they are pretty decent. If you have any questions just message me and I will help you thru it.

    Could you give me the link to the tutorial you found evo? I've only found a hand full and not 1 has gotten the 3g working. Also the APNs wont stick either. Everytime I enter one in it disappears. I don't think that has anything 2 do with the 3g though. I believe its because I opened mms before I entered the APN.

    I have the same issue. Does any one know how to fix it or is it impossible?? As for the mms,I havent even rooted or tried the steps by bloodykill. Ill update tonight to see if they work.

    I have mine flashed over on the $40 plan with EVERYTHING working. With 3g working flawlessly.

    To get mms working, check out Atinder's post at xda developer- that is how I got my mms working...credit goes to Atinder.

    Wolf112 and chicano what are your 3g speeds looking like? Ping,dwn,up rate. If u dont mind can you both share how you did it to make it work so great ") would love to get some decent speeds. Im in dallas and I kno 3g is fully blown here for metro.

    ABC guy lol (thats what i kno u mainly by . I had an admire before I got this EP4G touch") I had the same issue untill I re-flashed the prl on qpst .I also had to re-do the mms fix. We really need a fix for this 3g metro.

    please tell me were u found the tutorial to flash the phone to metro. i see links in the thread but those are not links on how to flash the phone. i have a phone already connected to metro so i hope i can use it as the doner. i need a link that tells me how to flash the epic touch 4g right from sprint to metro. EVERY STEP FROM START TO END.
