Whats wrong with my phone not gewtting those speeds everywhere? its really annoying
I just got my 7100 unlocked as well and I am on the same plan you are on (its a great deal right?). I have the same problem, I'm stuck on EDGE at home (I'm on wi-fi so its not a big deal) but when I am at work my phone goes crazy. It will switch between H+, H, 3g and EDGE all day long. It will have seizures. The crazy thing is, work is about 10 away from my house so....???
I've been trying to unlock the 1700 band but it may not be possible on the GT-7100. when hitting *#7284#. You're supposed to go into the "Qualcomm usb settings" but that option does not exist on my phone. Anywhere. Its just not there. So I'm stuck.
I know Tmobile is in the process of refarming their network to 1900, but I have no idea when they are going to complete that project. Anyone know?
It may turn out that we'll have to either put up with the EDGE speeds or go with Straight Talk...
