    I'm not sure how to activate it. might depend on which city u live in. I'm in jacksonville fl. and to check if u have it, the 1x icon in your status bar should b 3G, also ur connection type should b CDMA EvDo rev

    What the heck is going on? I've only seen the 1x symbol (which is out half the time, stupid pos) but I woke up this morning and my phone was on 3G! wtf! ive had this MetroPCS Huawei Ascend for months and never seen it until now.

    its going in and out, randomly nothing, randomly 3G, and randomly 1x. is metro upgrading their shit or something? or is this a fluke? anyone else getting this?

    i live in Jacksonville, FL btw (riverside)

    that also depends on what area, remember not to long ago when they was working on 4g when the indulge came out, it could just be a flaw for now, but would be awesome if it did stay 3g.

    kind of hard to say about that cause they are still working on it in jacksonville FL, and other states also, plus it also depends on what towers your phone is bouncing off on, you can always try *228 option 5 than option 1 to update your PRL and hope you get one of sprint 3g towers which metro are using anyways...
