Got ya now. Yeah that's allot of juice used.


If we knew how, we'd probably be taking advantage of it.

GOSH! ughh haha. HSPA+ Works Fine with the NORMAL "Phone" APN. But after 5GB I get throttled on HSPA+ Only never really been throttled on LTE, But I hardly EVER get on LTE maybe a few times every few months.

Well Anyway After I HIT 5GB I change over to the wap.cingular APN I created which that APN is usually used on older devices and flip phones and for as long as I have used it for awhile its NOT as reliable like streaming services act up when using it, BUT HD YouTube, Downloads, and Speed Tests I usually average about 4 megs down and 2 megs up in my cruddy county, But In Knoxville Tennessee a few weeks ago I got about 9down and 1 up while throttled but by using the wap.cingular apn, When using the stock "phone" apn I couldn't get higher than about 0.45mb down.

Yea but just for internet all the APN is, You Give it a name (any name) and then the under the APN Field its just: wap.cingular . That`s pretty much it.. But for MMS you need to add more settings which are not required just only for MMS.



I would show you a difference in the APN in speed but right now I`m home on my Microcell and 2 my billing cycle restarted today, But it shouldnt take long to get throttled when I head out.

This hole has been there SINCE throttling started I learned it when I had an international phone and was wondering why I never got throttled and that was because I was using the default APN which was the wap.cingular.

I HOPE THEY DONT. At my house on my Microcell when im throttled for some strange unexplained reason my data/mms wont work but only when im Throttled

How is that. This apn setting is all over XDA. I just wanted to know if it was the same thing that I saw b4.

Well I started it so. I really don't think that anything can or is going to happen. If we're worried about them throttling us. It's going to happen. But we're all smarter enough to figure out a way around it. To get a lil More speed. Lol

Kinda like it's having Google WALLET, on the NOTE 2! They (Google) stopped it, fixed the first version from working and they (XDA) fixed it..
Also we all respect & are cool with each other that are here. Not like some threads you go into. We know which ones!!
Just my 2

I use a different APN setting to get around the throttling, and I get 30Mbps-50Mbps past the limit. The APN I use, I've only found in one website. So, it's not commonly displayed, so I'm more leery about just posting it on here. But, what I will say is what it does is when selected, it seems to activate the APN types internet and modem that originally belongs to the HSPA+ APN on LTE. I'm just not sure if the way it's set up tricks the network since after selecting it, it reselects my standard LTE APN while unthrottling my speeds and allowing me 30Mbps-50Mbps speeds. I'm also curious if it's associated with the fact AT&T detected my tethering.

Well we'll never know, if they in fact can detect the tethering. When we switch our APN back & fourth.. But one thing I do know is that they can see what ever phone we're using and the imie #. They weren't able to c it b4! But when they upgraded there system all of that changed! Learned that quite some time back. So from that being able to have that access, then what else can they get??
But I'm thinking that it helps by US using a custom Rom. And taking off ALL that AT&T crap that they put on the phone!

Sidenote: to everyone!
If ever they switch your account out of your grandfathered unlimited plan. And your unaware of it. You'll just have to go into a local AT&T store or call 611 CS. Ask for a supervisor immediately. In store ask for MGR!! FYI
And tell them that someone switch your account without your knowledge and your want it put back the way it was. And after they perform a check to see if your account was, actually on a unlimited plan! Which don't exist anymore.
They'll switch it back for you!!!

It happen recently to a friend of mine's daughter switching phones, and data packages. (From android 2 crapple then back 2 android) And the rep screwed up on the account.
And deny anything that you know you have done that could have got it changed in the first place. :what: LOL
