Just a thing to keep in mind... The data speeds it shows are:
- GSM = G
- EDGE = 2G
- HSPA/+ = 4G
So it will show 4G whether it is on 3G or 4G speeds.
I see you're swapping the SIM. I hope that helps. If you continue to have significant trouble, post it here in the forum and I'm sure folks will try to help.
I am using the new SIM card, no difference. If anything it is even slower now during the day. It hovers between 1 to 3.8Mbps at my home, where I get normally 6Mbps with my old 3G android phone.
I will check to see how the loss in signal is , but I'm far from satisfied by this .
It was sold and touted as faster than 3G yadda yadda yadda.
I'm used to driving in the car, and being able to stream music/live stock streams before, not I have multiple areas where it drops the data signal totally, or down to 2G (which seems to still not get any data).
I'm just ticked that my old 3G phone has NEVER done this. So why am I paying for less service/more headaches than before?
Try the app "Open Signal Maps" to see what towers are available, which you connect to and speed. It gave me the insight to try the new SIM. My service was unusable with 3 G2s and far better with other handsets but not good until I used the proper SIM. TM did not diagnose this. I did try a new SIM in the G2s without success. One of the new handsets is a Sensation.
I have started using 'Open Signal' for seeing how far I am from towers and what speeds I get and it's always under 3Mbps down/up, even if I'm a few hundred meters from the tower, and it's supposedly HSDPA 3.5+.
I'm working with TForce as they want to replace the phone with a new HTC Sensation 4G, but I'm worried about running out of the 30day return period.
I'll keep updating this thread as things happen.
