Big thanks to the group of testers that PM'd me!

I posted a guide for you guys to unthrottle yourself.

DISCLAIMER: STILL UNDER TESTING AND METHODS MAY BE PATCHED

Sorry but I'm not going to repost the guide here. Giving you guys a link to the thread because I promised you guys I would write one.

Thank you very much for your resource! However, when I put the APN settings into my phone, there is no radio button to select the HSPA+ APN. Do you happen to have a solution for me?

I would recommend doing it from APN manager rather than from the stock settings menu. You should have more luck with that.

Stock settings menu is very finicky.

When I tried method one back on my skyrocket, using a blackberry, the blackberry data plan did not work with my android phone. Most guides tell you that you need to call and switch your data plan back to tte phone you want to use. It doesn't matter that it reverts you to the original phone, it is the fact that the throttled plan is initially removed.

Next time I get throttled I'm going to try switching data plans through the My Att apparently, which should also ttrigger the removal of the throttled data plan. Save me the hassle of having to call.

Also the APN should be:

Name: whatever u want
APN: phone
APN type: internet

The separately for mms:

Name: whatever
APN: all that cingular junk
...
...
APN type: MMS

The reason it did not have a radio button for u is because you set it to only mms (which is what the guide told you to do without stating it was for mms only).

That's why you can do it with any HSPA android IMEI.

And those two percent cave in.....and tier theirplan to enjoy service again.
Allowing at&t to grab the next 2% to refill the top 5%.

They are killing it softly.
Had a friend to cave in. I was there when he was throttled once. It was like stoneage edge network....no thanks!
