    I bought this phone in hopes I could actually use it, but any time I'm not under WiFi it shows 'E'. I don't even have 3G because nothing will load, but I can send texts/calls and send messages through messenger(not pics though)

    I use MetroPCS and I've tried different APN settings, but not One has given me even 3G.

    E meaning EDGE, it's operating on GSM 2G only. What variant of the Honor P10 Lite have you got there, and where did you buy it. Because it sounds like it's not fully compatible with MetroPCS's network. Suggest you post the full model number of it. Does the model number end in "00", which means China? There are some variants of Huawei phones that are just not suitable for use in the US at all.

    According to this. the international variant Honor 10 Lite you've got does NOT support 4G with MetroPCS, but apparently it does support 3G with that carrier.


    As you're only getting 2G EDGE with this phone on Metro, could be carrier doesn't have 3G service in your area?

    Does MetroPCS publish any coverage maps for their network? MetroPCS is an MVNO on the T-Mobile network isn't it?
