    Well today, i caught the 3G signal again, and of all the places to get it... It was while going over the Sunshine Skyway Bridge!! I usually LOOSE signal going over the bridge... However... no data would work... I was running GPS it it locked up because it had no data signal... the 3G indicator stayed white, and never turned green...

    Here is a screenshot PRL3020 CM7-Ascend-05142011 ROM

    I'm using a custom rom on Samsung Fascinate, I posted in this thread because I'm in dire need of 3022 PRL. BTW I tested my connection speed just south of Miami Airport, the speeds are faster than I expected. Here's is a screenshot:

    Just got back from working in St. Petersburg, and again 3G is there... but still the issue of NO data transmitting... could not even connect to google...

    So it is seeming to me that the 3022 PRL might be needed for the 3G to work...

    This was around 3rd Street N and Central Ave...

    I agree. In st.pete I get the best signal around 49th street and 5th ave south and for a very short period I was actually receiving 3g data there. So I'm checking the forum almost every hour looking for that 3022. I'm like a crackhead for that prl (I'll suck yo... Okay maybe not that serious) lmao

    ^ Second post. Actually read the whole thread.


    PS as always you are responsible. You can screw your phone up in that QPST program. So READ first. Seriously the entire thread. Because I already know what the first question for many is going to be. "Why doesnt it show the ports" or "I cant find the ports" or " Where do I get the port COM number?" Ahahaha

    Thanks for the PRL 3022 :):)

    Wish I had it about 9 hours ago... Well I went down to Port Charlotte tonight, and tracked the 3G signal... it starts just before the Skyway Bridge, and lasts for about 1-2 miles, then it is gone... never to return till I came back across the Skyway... I did find another area with 3G tonight though... it is over in NW Tampa (Town & Country) area...

    Hillsboro & Hanley is where i noticed it... Good and strong there... but still NO data... However... data must be working on the 3G to a point since my GPS map continued to load while on the 3G, but still could not get on the internet, and the speed tests, that I managed to get while driving were POOR!! yet, other times the speedtest app would not connect...

    I don't know!! LOL Gonna load up this 3022 and see how things go tomorrow... EDIT I'm at 3022!!! :)



    Here are some screenshots of Google just hanging on 3G and the speed tests I took while in 3G. The first (top) speedtest is from home... the next 3 were done while on I-275 before, going over, and after the Skyway Bridge (Heading North)... the last one was the first time one the way home that I saw 3G flash in (it was quick, and the test probably was at 1x speed...

    Yeah I got 3G, but I guess the coverage here in my area (and a lot of other people)really suck so when trying to use it, it almost always fails to connect and reverts back to 1x.

    It seems to be slowly expanding in areas. At home I get it constantly now with about 1 bar. And on my lunch break earlier I noticed it was switching back and forth between 1x and 3g where I never got it before today.

    Happens sometimes, usually where I am will depend if it happens.

    Annoying but hey, that's Metro, its what you're paying for. Can't really complain.
