    No. I havent done a speed test
    But I know my connection data is still 1x speeds sadly. My connection goes in ranges of -70 to -110 when I know 3g speeds are -160 and above

    So really its no 3g cause Metro voice calls will alwyas drop to 1x even if your on a 4g phone until they make the switch to voLTE anyways. So that 3g icon your getting is just a fluke i have gotten the same thing in some areas my guys is that they might be in the process of turning on EVDo coverage now its been a month or so since i tried any of these prls but just flashed an evo to metro and am thinking about trying it out. thats if i can get the ports to show up sometime soon.

    Not having much luck in Macomb County.

    I've tried prl 3020, 3024, 3025

    Best I've had was intermittent 3G while driving but nothing at home yet. Interesting that its better in the city/Southfield areas. I think downriver is good as well.

    I've haven't had any luck either I work right in the middle of downtown. I have an evo on metro I've tried all the prl files on aosp roms and sense. I know the coverage is changing rapidly though. I looked at the coverage on the sensorly map like two weeks ago and there was only a couple evdo towers in downtown and various other areas. But looked again yesterday and the lodge from telegraph to 94 has 4/4 evdo coverage. And a bunch of other areas like siuthfield. Ypsilanti. Dearborn. So hopefully its everywhere soon. With as much as that map on the sensorly app changed pretty much over night. It shouldn't be long. Ill be happy with even 300kbps.down. check out that app. I didn't see much out macomb county way though. Btw what phones and roms are getting the 3g.
