I have good signal. This doesn't seem to be an issue but my download speeds are woeful. Either 3 or 4g it's just terrible. Ping speeds are slow and download speeds on 4g are less than 1meg at times.

It's a 1052 model. Does anyone know if there's any update modem drivers. Genuinely can't handle this hahaha

Ping and download speeds are most likely related to your carrier and not your phone - especially if you have a good signal. Do you have another GSM phone that you can place your SIM card into and see if your speeds increase and your PINGs decrease? You really need a basis for comparison.

I started a similar thread a little earlier than you. Same crap.

My moto X Dev with t mobile Sim. My wife's note 2 bought from att and unlocked, which doesn't even have all the LTE frequencies/channels , on the same family plan...

Speed tests on the att note 2 is unbelievable better than the moto X.

Are you manually forcing the phone into "LTE Only" mode? This would explain why you can't make calls on 4g....
