    hi guys im new to the forum mainly because i just learned yahoo answers isnt the best place to ask about android phones. anyways i was planning on buying an atrix 4g but since i have metropcs then you should know its a different process. Well i was reading about the phone and saw it supported 4g lte. which at&t i believe doesnt have. so i thought i could get the phone and get it running on metropcs! but mainly this is my question. if i buy an atrix 4g, a metropcs 4g lte sim card, and an unlock code, can i use the motorola atrix 4g on metropcs's 4g lte plan? btw i have a optimus m.

    first of all, you shouldn't be so anxious for a reply within 30 minutes of posting

    second of all, no, the atrix doesn't have LTE support.

    I've heard a lot of mixed things about metro pcs's lte network. Check to make sure you have LTE in your area and if you know some one who has an LTE phone to check their speeds. This is a good article about it.

    In short their lte isn't on par with ATT's 3g

    Metropcs is doing LTE differently than everyone else currently. They're using 1700mhz for the frequency and others are using 700mhz. The Atrix is not LTE capable because it doesn't have an LTE modem to communicate on those frequencies or signal type. The Atrix communicates via hspa(hsdpa/hsupa).

    To answer your question, no, the Atrix won't work on the Metropcs network, neither will any LTE devices from the other networks. The hardware and frequencies they use are completely different.

    I am using an atrix hd on metropcs and am getting from 7 up to 20 down speeds -works great.

    The 4G on the atrix is actually just 3G with boosted speed, but when I had one on at&t I got no faster than 3G speeds. This is one of the many phones that came out before LTE really started to roll out and the carriers fought hard to call HSPA 4G even though it was just 3G.
