    No, those are for old CDMA phones that use metroPCS network. GSM phones like OPO and Nexus do not use metroPCS 4G ban and are instead on Tmobile LTE ban, even if your service provided is MetroPCS. This is the nice part about tmobile buying metroPCS. Once Tmobile and metroPCS fully merge (Tmetro), the old CDMA phones from Metro will not work. From what I hear, MetroPCS will ask you to trade in phone and offer you cheap upgrades. This may not happen for another year or so.

    Holy shit balls. Those are some good speeds. I get 15 - 18 mbs download speed max with my Nexus 4. Maybe because I'm in south Florida, but connections are suppose to be good here.

    Alright so I'm going to consolidate quite a bit of this info for the original poster.

    • If you have NOT received the update, the device will display 4G and that is LTE, after the update LTE will display.
    • H+ is HSPA+ and is just 3G on steriods, think 3.5G. The whole 4G(HSPA+) and then also having 4G LTE is marketing AT&T started and essentially made it a mess to explain to the masses of people who aren't all that well versed in cell phone technology.
    • MetroPCS actually trains us reps to program the T-Mobile LTE APN's into customer provided equipment, but there is a MetroPCS LTE set of APN's if the T-Mobile one's aren't working the way you'd expect them to.
    • Quit watching porn at work cause that's just weird and possibly you have some kind of addiction to it.

    Thanks brother, well actually I was researching a linux question and a page came up filtered. So I tried a porn site to verify, as thus inserted a little humor in my post :)

    Stay on your current version. Too many bugs on the new software. I reverted back, I will wait until they fix to update again

    It really depends on where you live. Coverage is better on some places more than others. Where I live, it's supposed to be an excellent area, in other words I should be getting some really good speeds. However, that's not the case! I'm lucky if I get 15mbps down. I've checked the coverage map on T-Mo's website a million times and It says I'm in a excellent area. Nonetheless, I can live with 15mbps down, though it gets annoying when, sometimes, I lose all the signal!
