Working for you?

Are you a T-Mobile customer with an unlocked phone in one of these cities? Are you seeing new 3G data today (or this month?)

I'm in Manhattan and have an unlocked iPhone 5 on me, with a T-Mobile SIM in it. It's still only getting EDGE. I'm wonder if it's working for others.

Have you tried resetting the network settings and whatnot to see if that helps?

Or toggled off the "Enable LTE" option in the settings?

My brother gets 3G signal in Brooklyn but EDGE speeds.

Rich, you would need to troubleshoot your phones network settings. I am not sure how it works on iphone but on my Android I look under Network and wireless. I click on data network and then select WCDMA AUTO that should allow you to connect to faster 3G. If that doesnt work you are gonna have to contact tech support for TMO. I am using my Note 2 for ATT on Tmobiles 4G no contract plans. I live in between Granada Hills and Van Nuys in California.

I'm pretty sure it's not my phone. I did check to make sure 3G was on. I do get 3G sporadically. For five minutes here or there in small spots. I've been getting it more reliably in Philly in recent weeks.

But I haven't been able to get it most places in NYC today, and I was all around today.

I have the same thing happening with my Note 2. It has been improving lately on the coverage however. Very happy beats paying $150 a month with ATT. Thinking about switching from Tmo 4G No contract plan $70 to SIMPLE Mobiles $50 unlimited talk,text, and 4G data plan.

I just discovered that my old xperia x10 mini doesn't do 1900 3g. Sad

However, airportal.de shows a couple dozen markers for Austin within the past month.

I have been detecting 3G areas on my iPhone 5 and ipad 3 here and there in Dallas for the past two or three months. Now, I guess, it's official. 5 to 10 Mbps down, less than 1 Mbps up when I have three or more bars. The coverage is still spotty.

To the gentlemen in Manhattan, there are plenty of backstore hacker places. All you need to do is get into the EPST settings and tweak from there.
