    Can someone post all network settings required for metro pics 4g lte I'm having issues it keeps dropping data services every 5 minutes.

    What do I select for network operator and the *#*#4636#*#* setting. Also, all apn settings, reason I ask is because having metro pcs linked with T-Mobile now the settings are very weird.

    1. APNs: How to access APN settings on most phones? Go to Settings > Wireless & Network > Mobile Networks > Access Point Names



    Below is the standard APN for MetroPCS GSM




    Quote:
    apn carrier="MetroPCS LTE
    Quote:
    mcc="310"
    mnc="260"
    extraid="6D"
    apn="fast.metropcs.com"
    user=""
    password=""
    authtype="0"
    server=""
    proxy=""
    port=""
    mmsc="http://metropcs.mmsmvno.com/mms/wapenc"
    mmsproxy=""
    mmsport=""
    type="default,mms,supl"
    preferapp=""


    The T-Mobile one which is below is also known to work

    2. Bands/Phone Compatibility



    Bands used for Metro GSM:




    GSM- 1900MHz

    HSPA- 1700/2100MHz or 1900MHZ. 1700/2100 has the larger coverage area at this point. But all further HSPA expansion is in 1900.

    LTE- (AWS)1700/2100MHz

    Later in the year of 2014 they will start using PCS and 700MHz B12 for LTE

    B2 = Band 2 = 1.9GHZ = 1900MHz = PCS



    B4 = Band 4 = 1.7/2.1GHz = 1700/2100MHz = AWS. They all mean the same. Most times B4 may just be listed as 1700MHz but if its listed as 2100 that is not the same thing.

    I've noticed that on my wife's LG k7, if I go to her Mobile Network Operater (MNO) search screen, she can choose independent LTE, 3g and 2g MetroPCS operators. Independent from eachother.

    If I do the same thing on my OP3t, all I can select in my MNO is Metro Pcs 3g.

    What gives ?

    Hey you guys!

    I am a new user of the OnePlus 5T & was struggling to find out how to get MetroPCS to work on my phone. I already had a sim card from a previous phone (iPhone to be exact). I tried researching the APN settings and follow instructions, however that didn't work. I also read from the forum to just go to the MetroPCS store. However, that was a little out of my way. So what I decided to do was go online and live chat with a MetroPCS representative. I followed the representative's instructions & had my IMEI number handy. It took a few minutes but I got my phone up and running. I cannot wait to see what this phone has in store for me. Hope this helps someone!
