    APN: internet
    Proxy: wap.metropcs.net:3128
    Port: 3128
    UserName: Phone#@mymetropcs.com
    Password: MSL code*
    Server: wap.metropcs.net
    MMSC: http://mms.metropcs.net:3128/mmsc
    MMS Proxy: wap.metropcs.net

    Whats the MSL code, I noticed a * by it? (thanks for the quick reply)

    "master subsidy lock" The MSL code is generated by an algorithm based upon the phone’s ESN and the specific carrier who originally sold the phone. If you dont know yours you can get it with this method:

    1. Go to settings/about phone/Status and write down your MEID_DEC number.<LI sizset="232" sizcache06010726080668953="4">Go to android market and download MEID Converter https://market.android.com/details?id=com.splicedmedia.android.meidconverter
    2. Open MEID Converter and enter your MEID_DEC number and press calculate.
    3. Read where it says MetroPCS SPC and write down these numbers in a safe place. (on the inside of your battery cover and on paper in your wallet). This is the SPC/MSL code for your phone.

    now that is interesting.... hermm... hows your phone setup (rooted, unlocked, flashed from another carrier, etc.)

    also, what do you mean no 4g? (no 4g symbol, or no 4g speed?)

    Yeah, I thought it a bit weird, rooted and no 4G symbol, checked speed on EV and just over 1Mb per sec, normally I get up to 2-3Mbp/s on 4G

    I have the complete list of apn's, you'll probably have to add them in through service dialer. Can't pull it right now due to backup in progress. I'll post it up as soon as backup completes if ya want. This is a copy/paste of the xml.

    I think you're better off posting this in the MetroPCS section than here in the LG Motion section.
