Hmm, my data is still gimped with the APN setup. It's like there's something in the system preventing it from connecting at full speed.
Voice, SMS, and MMS work flawlessly though.
By gimped I mean my download speed is 0.05Mbps and upload is 1.0Mbps. It's like it's capped on my end. At one point I did get 0.5Mbps, but I know HSPA+ is capable of so much more.
So, Verizon may not SIM lock phones, but they're doing something to limit data.
I have the VZW APN permissions app and VZWAPNService disabled too.
