    I am beginning to think it is hit or miss with this....I had an iphone 5 with an LTE plan got my nexus 4 tonite put the sim card in and used the apn settings above. Works fine for me mms, hspa+, voice, voicemail...no issues whatsoever and I didn't have to call AT&T or switch my plan.
    How did you use a nano sim in a micro sim phone?

    You can buy a converter tray that allows you to put a frame around the nano sim so it fits in the micro sim

    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+

    I had Nexus S before..never got more than 2 mbps so my current speed looks very good after old one

    I've only been getting 3.5 mbps max. A little disappointing since I'm in NYC but there seems to be so much interference that maybe that's doing it. I think I have all the apn settings right.

    Are you using the "phone" APN? Which data plan are you on?

    I told att that I had an atrix 4G with a randomly generated imei. So I should have a standard 4G plan. Not lte though. I have the phone set. So far no great speeds.

    I'm probably going to switch to T-Mobile because of the faster HSPA+ speeds, and cheaper service but until then I'm keeping my AT&T service. Went to the store today, had them cut down my SIM card since the old one was too big. The guy (who was kind of a jerk) cut the sim, popped it in, rebooted the phone and sent me on my way. Everything works, but like many others, data is WAY slow.

    If I understand correctly, changing the APN won't help much unless you have the proper plan. My account shows that I'm still on a data plan for an iPhone 3G. I wish there were a way to do this myself but it looks like I will have to go back (or call) and get on a 4G data plan first. Maybe it doesn't matter since I'm switching, but I'd like to have it working properly in the mean time...

    I found the easiest way is to do an online chat with att. I used a made up imei number that I generated from a blog post I read. A Google search should get you the information.

    So can anyone tell me if I will have this problem? I have a GSII on ATT. What will happen when I get a new micro sum and activate the phone for the first time? Will my speeds not be HSPA+? Does it depend what my data plan is right now?

    I think the gs2 should already have he right plan.. you should it be able to switch sim cards... don't have them Chang the imei on our account..

    I hope so. My signal indicator says 4g but I'm assuming its HSPA+. I hope it'll stay the same when I activate my nexus.

    I can't rem I the s2 uses a micro sim or reg... but all you need is to pop in a micro sim and power up the n4... and add the proper APN settings

    Anyone miss LTE? Other than an extra four second pause between Pandora songs, I haven't even felt a difference to be honest.

    I'm not missing it honestly. AT&T is a pain in the *** to deal with when it comes to setting up an unlocked device to work well on their network, at least it was for me. Trying T-Mobile out and getting really nice 4G speeds, a lot better then AT&T, ranging from 12 Mbps to 16 Mbps down in San Diego.

    I'm missing my galaxy note 2. I want to love this phone but the data speed are pretty crippling. Current getting 1 to 3mb down and. 5 to 1mb up on ATT hspa+ in Palm Harbor, FL.
