    So I haven't been keeping up much with the metro/t-mobile merger, but been very concerned.

    Today I went to a Metro store to check out the S4, but only because I thought my S3 & Spirit weren't going to work on t-mobile network.

    When I told the employees my concern, they said I was completely wrong and that all of metro's 4G phones will work on t-mobile network.

    They then said that I was already on t-mobile network which I disputed because I always averaged 5mbs down and it was no different. So they said all I had to do was update my PRL.

    Guess what... They were right. As soon as I updated, my speeds jumped to 9+ mbs down which I never got before.

    So update to PRL 3035 and you'll be good to go on t-mobile network.

    I've actually been getting worse speeds since the merge. Most of us in Florida are getting crap upload speeds. Read this.

    And yes I have had 3035 for weeks.

    3035 won't get you on T-Mobiles network its just the PRL that's getting us prepared for the spectrum combine

    That's exactly right. We should have a new PRL in a few months but I can't live with these low upload speeds for too long.

    They're just tweaking stuff for whenever they're ready to finally combine

    That's what I thought, but the metro employee at corporate store told me that updating my prl would switch me over which made me skeptical (I thought it was a lie).

    I'm thinking maybe they did the merger in my area cuz they swear by it that this area is on t-mobile network and I don't doubt it since my speeds doubled+ and others are reporting the same.

    I'm in NJ, in a t-mobile and metro home area if that means anything.

    Lmao well I would say the combine is 75% complete which why some are seeing slower or faster but we're not technically on the same network yet

    The top 2 tests were done after the prl update and the 3rd one was done right before the update during peak hours.

    I'll do more tests later during off peak hours to see if I get any higher speeds.

    I'm loving it. :D

    Thats because T-Mobile is not in your area yet. In my area, I am now getting 9MB/s speeds after updating to 3035. I posted a pic in one of the PRL threads not too long ago.

    Everybody around here has T-Mobile for a looooong time. Actually, I worked for T-Mobile in the mall before I ever worked for Metro so I dont know what you mean by "not in my area yet" ... are you talking about HSPA+?

    How do you install the 3035 prl file? I tried flashing it on CWM but it didn't work. I also dialed *228 but it didn't officially update it. I'm still on 2034.

    3035 is for other phones and 2035 is for the S3.

    My spirit on 3035 has the same speeds as my S3 on 2035. I don't see any difference.
