    Our version of the optimus, Optimus M only has evdo rev.0 chip.
    all the rest of the optimus lineup and apparently the ascend's got the rev.A chips.:(

    I'm in Arlington as noted under my name, and I'm still very 3g-less and very 1x-full. I think it's just another tease from Metro kinda like adobe flash on the optimus m. lol.

    Im totally happy with my phone as it is... Especially seeing as I dont have to dish out boat-loads of cash for data. But, damn, it would be sweet to have 3g. It would also be nice to not have to doubt my provider. Haha

    lol. i guess i've learned just not to expect more from them than is offered officially and is easily obtainable by me assuming i have the money to do it. i even had a hard time believing it and figuring out that i really did have the perk of downloadable voicemails translated into text as already a part of my plan ($50 plan), and all I needed was the app for it. that in itself is sweet.

    Depending on the phone you have, you can get Visual Voicemail from Metro free with any $50 and up plan. The app is available in Metro's AppStore.

    As you might expect, the text transcript of voicemails isn't perfect, but especially if you know/pick up on the context of who and what, it does the job, and if you're still unclear, you can play the voicemail right there on the same screen, rewind it, replay it, go to a certain spot in it, just like any other sound recording as if it were in a music player.

    Well I live in Jacksonville and the prl update nor 3g work for me. I was at the Jag stadium tonight and noticed I had 3g and my prl was updated to 3020. The 3g only lasted until I drove away from the stadium (still no 3g where I live), but I still have the updated prl. I made an attempt to pull it from my phone using qpst. For those interested/brave, here is the link 3020.prl, but I make no guarantees that this will: a) give you 3g, 2) even work on your phone, and d) not screw up your phone. I'm still a noob when it comes to this stuff but this new-fangled internets has all sorts of helpful guides :) good luck

    Guys, this topic has kinda spread to a couple other threads a bit, so here's a tip. Take a look at this post, and read the few posts beyond it, and also follow aflick3's link that you see, labeled "Problems since getting 3g". When aflick's on 3g, he cant do calls or texts, just data stuff. when it goes back to 1x for him, he gets those functions back.

    OP: elcocho852: can you chime in? can you still do calls and texts when your 3g is on?

    I was sending/receiving texts from the stadium (where i noticed i had 3g), but didn't try calling. Well the first preseason game is coming up soon, so that'll be my next opportunity I suppose :)

    For anyone wanting to do this, using lgnpst when you connect the phone and open it go to the prl tab and select the 3020 prl an that should be it, obviously dont unplug the phone during the process.

    nice. I was around southside and beach blvd (in jax) today and the 3g popped up again. AND then i got a phone call and answered it with no problems. by the time the call ended i was back at the house and my phone went back to 1x. So calls and texts seem to work for me when using 3g, might be just a few unlucky ones with text/voice issues.
