    Hi puntudo86,

     

    I am happy to see that is working already for you.

      • Android 4.0 (HTC)
        1. From the Settings menu, look under Wireless & Networks.
        2. Touch Mobile network
        3. Touch Access Point Names.
    1. If there is a T-Mobile APN, touch it. If not, press the Menu key, and touch New APN.
    2. Verify and update the following settings for the Data APN:
      • Name: T-Mobile
      • APN: epc.tmobile.com or fast.t-mobile.com (for LTE devices)
      • Proxy: <Not set>
      • Port: <Not set>
      • Username: <Not set>
      • Password: <Not set>
      • Server: <Not set>
      • MMSC: http://mms.msg.eng.t-mobile.com/mms/wapenc
      • MMS proxy: <Not set>
      • MMS port: <Not set>
      • MMS protocol: WAP 2.0
      • MCC: 310
      • MNC: 260
      • Authentication type: <Not set>
      • APN type: <Not set> OR Internet+MMS
        Default Android (left image) provides a text field to leave <Not set>. Samsung (right image) provides an Internet+MMS radio button to select..

    3. Press the Menu key.
    4. Touch Save.
    5. In the list of APNs, delete all others that may appear. If there is a FOTA APN, you may leave that one. To do this:
      1. Touch the APN you want to delete.
      2. Press the Menu key.
      3. Touch Delete APN.
    6. Verify that there is a circle next to the one remaining APN to show it is activated.
    7. Perform a soft reset.
    8. Test your data connection and/or MMS, by accessing a web page and/or sending a picture message (MMS).

    I was not able to get it to work so I put my VZW Sim card back in it and am using it there. However I am going to get the note 3 from T-Mobile for my line. If I can get this upgrade order to process. I opened up a new discussion for the issue.

    I am able to have htc one max connected. There are 2 issues. 1. Not sure if lte works since I only got hspa at home. 2. Mms became sms.

    I was only able to get 3G and sms - was never able to get mms to work. most of the time i ended up on the edge network. so i put my verizon sim back in the phone and went and got myself a samsung galaxy note 3 from tmobile and it is amazing.

    Good for you. The only good AMOLED phone is Galaxy S2, after that not so much. If Note 3 has better screen than S2, I should give it a try.
