    They can be pretty useless. Try another agent.

    I just realized that I can get HSPA+ speeds with the current LTE plan, the problem was that in the same spot, the speeds vary a lot, so even though I ran the test at the same time, the network was a lot more saturated and could not get the 12 Mbps I had seen at home after I switched plans. I got 12 today with the LTE plan, so that works.

    I added the N4 which arrived today as a 2nd line (for work). Currently have an iPhone 4S with unlimited data that's been grandfathered in. I went to the local ATT store and got the sim. When I originally put it in, I was under the iPhone LTE plan. I had access to internet/phone/mms but I couldn't get SpeedTest to work. Researching a little more, I decided to call ATT and get it right.

    I got a really friendly ATT agent when I called in. She was all about helping me figure out the issue. I mentioned that I was reading through this thread looking for info at the same time. The key was using the Inspire 4G to get the correct IMEI so I could get the DataPro 3GB Smartphone 4G plan. I checked my account online and it was there. I updated my APN using the 'phone' APN listed. I was able to get SpeedTest to work but my d/l speeds were around 2-3mbps. I live in a high rise and its already got some spotty reception. Will try again when I'm ground level and driving around town.

    I am on a 4G LTE plan from my lumia as well until I can get it switched to a reg 4G plan. At first my speeds were kinda low...now they are decent..seems like they've gotten better throughout the day

    And just a FYI to everyone else you don't need a dummy imei to get a hspa+ plan, a buddy of mine is a manager at AT&T and informed me that he will register my nexus 4 imei on my line and that he can manually change it to any plan.. Apparently managers have a code they can use to change anything

    Anybody here come from a grandfathered unlimited 3G plan? That's what I currently have, my biggest priority when switching over to HSPA+ is going to be to keep unlimited data. Did anybody have experiences with this? I know they try at every corner to kick you off the old unlimiteds, has anybody had any problems asking them to switch over?

    Thats abut average and it depends on what area you are on. What are you getting now?

    This is the APN I'm using I got it from another thread and I'm getting the same HSPA+ speeds like I was getting on my iPhone

    Nano sim adapter

    Name: (whatever you want it to be)
    APN: phone
    Proxy:
    Port:
    Username:
    Password:
    Server:
    MMSC: http://mmsc.mobile.att.net
    MMS Proxy: proxy.mobile.att.net
    MMS port: 80
    MCC: 310
    MNC: 410
    Authentication type:
    APN type: default,mms,supl
    Your missing some of the APN type.. This is what you should have for the bottom half of the settings...

    And here is the fastest I've gotten and I'm on the 4G lte plan still

    Word, sister. I know how they be, they hate us unlimited folks, I swear one day they're going to waterboard us until we waiver our unlimited contracts and get shackled into a 3GB nonsense plan or something

    You will need to manually add the apn setting and that's about it.
    By the way, the speed you will get is hspa and not hspa+.not sure why that is.
    Still decent speed though.
    It will both on a prepaid and postpaid account. Maximum data plan on prepaid is 1gb for $25 for the month, but ask the sales rep and they maybe able to stack two 1gb at a time.

    Well feel free to ask me a question if you have one.

    Working for me. I popped in my iPhone 5 SIM via a nano-micro adapter, and turned the phone on. Default APN was WAP.Cingular.com. Edited the APN with the recommended settings in the thread, and everything has worked well.

    I also noted that the N4 had no problem picking up my micro cell as well.

    Well he is a manager in store... When you call you may need to get a higher tier CS rep that knows what they're doing

    For what it's worth, I had a relatively easy time getting my account set to 4G by 1) using chat instead of calling and 2) using the directions here - How I was finally provisioned for 4G on my AT&T Galaxy Nexus - gdgt to create an IMEI # that matches an Atrix 4G. Rather than having the CSR search around for an Inspire or Atrix IMEI, just use the one you create. It worked for me without any problems.

    To anyone who was having super low speeds (10kpbs-200kbps) and disconnections: Make sure you only have 1 APN setting! I couldn't figure out why the new apns weren't working. I had 2 possible settings so I deleted the orignal and now I'm experiencing normal speeds (3mbps-12mpbs). GL!

    I'm on a 4G LTE plan now using my other phones IMEI and getting 4-8 Mbps down in my area. I'm not using the APN posted above but another I found from xda forums for people on an LTE plan with AT&T and this one is working a lot better. APN above had my Nexus 4 drop connection randomly and reset.

    Is it bad to have two APN settings? I have the default and my APN I put in.

    Switched my APN settings over to the ones in this thread/that XDA link. Restarted the phone and how I'm getting HSPA+:15 to show up in About Phone>Status and getting my MMS to send. I came from an AT&T GS3 and didn't have to change my plan from a LTE plan to a "4G" plan.

    What speed counts good for Nexus 4? I have old unlimited plan. Got N4, went to store and they gave me new card. Had to call AT&T to activate it but didn't tell them that this is new device. So, didn't change plan, didn't change APN. As people already wrote here speedtest app not working. Used Speakeasy.net. Got 6.34 mbps down and 1.3 mbps up. Is it 'normal' 4G speed? I do have HSPA:15 during load.
    For comparison my wife's iPhone 5 has 9.5 mbps down and 1.5 up. Bu this is LTE..

    The speed app doesn't work when you don't have the apn setup right. I followed the one on here earlier and it totally fixed the problem.

    What phone did our have before? Your speeds will be faster if you enter the proper APN for hspa + and have the right smartphone 4g plan... are you sure our wife is actually getting lte? That's kinda slow for lte, sounds more like hspa+... speeds vary but ive seen high speeds of 8-12mbps on hspa+
