    Dude are you okay ? And btw, thanks for the help again, your as helpful as your co-workers are. Logic ? - Please see your response, "

    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. only the majority of the one plus one owners could have told me this.
    • 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. trust me i understand the evolution of generation connections. that wasn't my question.
    • 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. you must be a rocket scientist to think no one knows APN settings, or the way Tmobile is structuring MetroPCS. - i just wasn't sure which one to use.
    • Quit watching porn at work cause that's just weird and possibly you have some kind of addiction to it. its just a little awkward you would say this ? hmmmm.
    again thanks, but, ignorance is bliss.

    You explained you were checking the web filtering looking at the porn site. Which explained why you were doing it at work, which I made a joke at my expense basically saying "oh well, then my last bullet point (the joke) now has a logical explanation as isn't funny now.

    Again, you read way more into that entire post than was needed. But before you go in and start insulting my usefulness I'll just point out about everyone else caught the joke but you.

    And besides, you're the one who posted a basic question that I consider the equivalent to answering what's 4+4. Don't go insulting someone else's intelligence when yours could be called into question quite easily if someone were so inclined.

    Use speedtest to run a test, base on speed, you see the the speed meter.

    After a point though you don't really notice the speed because certain servers will limit bandwidth

    you do not need to fiddle around with any APN settings.

    i started a session with an metro online rep. gave them my IMEI# and SIM#, switched to one of the new GSM plans and i was done.

    i don't even know how to access the apn settings.

    True indeed. I notice it different areas, I get top notch speed, but in other is barely chugging alone. Hopefully they can fix that.

    Geez, this is why I left sprint. Had same issue, could not use my phone in my apartment. I had them for years and no matter who's house I was in, crappy service. This is odd because Verizon customer usually get great service no matter where they are (at least in FL) and they use the same bands as Sprint.

    Now you are just bragging bro... What service provider do you have? I visit San Antonio anually and can't get LTE service. Mind you, this is when I had a old MetroPCS phone, not the Nexus 4 GSM phone which is on T-mobile's network. Now I know San Antonio is far from Houston and all, but if you look at T-mobile's coverage map, it seems weak all over Texas. You getting better speeds then my Comcast internet at home, and I pay for the Ultra package o_O

    LOL My bad bro. I'm on T-mobile. Don't let that speed fool you. I only hit that 3 different times, and each were in different area's of town. It's varies from location, like here at work, I only get a consistent 10-12 mbs, by my house, it's around 20ish...so its not 70 mbs everywhere.
