    how to boost 3g in Samsung Admire

    this is for metro pcs root and non root


    1- Download QPST (Free Software, Click Here)

    2- Get your own SPC Number Click Here & Enter Your MEID. That will be your key to unlock the phone and your password. Your MEID could be found at Settings->About Phone->Status ... it's all numbers

    3- Got to Start-->All Programs-->QPST-->QPST Configuration.

    4- Select your phone from the list (the phone should be in Debug Mode).

    5- If you don't see your phone Click on "Add New Port" uncheck "Show Serial and select the port and add it.

    6- With your phone selected go to Start Clients-->Service Programing. Select the phone and click OK.

    7- If a dialog came up telling you to retry click on retry.

    8- Click on "Read from Phone" you will be asked for your SPC number to unlock the phone and get its information.

    9-M.IP tab change the mobile ip behavior to: simple IP only
    Write to Phone (the phone should restart by itself)

    let my know if work

    i was down 50kbps now 600kbps to 1mb cool this will work no matter what rom you have install;)

    YYYEEEESSSSSSSSS... it does work!!!!!

    I went from 116 to 504kbps in my Samsung Admire.

    I confirm this works.

    THANK YOU VERY VERY VERY MUCH!!!

    EDIT: I have tested it a few times and I am getting constant speeds between 302-495kbps.

    EDIT 2: See attached screenshot for proof on my Admire.

    there maybe something wrong with the phone call quality with this idk the two phone calls i place today thought i was on speaker phone. also it randomly goes back to 1x for a brief period of time then defaults back to 3g.

    OK.. here's my report.

    Stationary speed tests wit 2 bars in homestead/leisure city Florida....

    Average results of 3 tests using speed test.net and all three possible IP settings...

    Mob IP only:
    Ping=324. 6666 Ms
    Upload=225. 3333kbps
    Download=88. 6666kbps

    Simple IP only
    Ping=182. 6666ms
    Upload=200. 3333kbps
    Download=113. 3333kbps

    Mob+simple f/back
    This soft bricked my phone. Made sounds but wouldn't go past the glowing samgung logo. Fixed by turning on and putting IP setting back to simple IP.

    Results:

    Simple IP is slightly faster downloading and on ping but 1/8 slower on upload

    Mob+simple f/back f/backed my phone.
