    What IP? Because most IPs are dynamic meaning they change all the time

    I wasn't asking to post your IP, sorry for the misunderstanding. Good move though, don't go around posting your IP. I understand that IPs are dynamic so I thought that's why it's different. Seems like that's not the issue though.

    Just wanted to share this. I was running a speed test and noticed that it said T-mobile as my ISP. So of course I ran a differnt on to verify. Hopefully this means that things are rolling thru BakersHELL.

    Running Speed Test today it read TMobile on the first 2 lines for the first time. When I ran it yesterday all 3 lines read MetroPCS. And my IP changed as well.

    Have you checked your Phone details lately? You may have received your network update.. possibly even a partial update (Only TMobiles version) & that may be why.. if so your phone details would now say ZVE instead of zvc,zvb, or zvd.. Compare each phone. Only curtain phone were effected but if the update wasn't received than you should've gotten a voicemail from metro stating to come into a local Metro Store & go online to read the details.. Hope that helps

    He doesn't have an issue plus his phone is one of the ones that don't need an update. ZVE is for the Esteem

  22. Seeing different subnets here in NY as of today for both external and internal IP. These have always been the same even on my old 1x phone (went and checked old speedtest results), but as of this morning they are now different.

    I'm currently using USB tethering on my Motion and I noticed that my IP has changed. When I looked up the location of my new IP, I noticed that the ISP now says T-Mobile instead of MetroPCS. Does this mean that the merger has started already?

    Does this mean that we'll be getting faster 4G?
