Thus, I have changed my APN settings to the "phone" settings. When I run speedtest I get about 2-2.5 down and 1 up on average. However, when data is being used on my phone it is listed as HSPA+ 15 network in my phone status in settings. Have we figured out if that is just a coincidence and I'm really not getting true HSPA+? I have "Data Unlimited for iPhone " as my plan.

    Thank you

    Location maybe? I live in Dallas, and the store and speed test in question were done while I was at work, which is in the suburbs. I just ran a speed test at home, where my signal strength isn't as good, and I only got 300 kbps down.

    Maybe there are different locations in the city you can try?

    You need smartphone unlimited 4G, and we posted the setting you need so you will get 4G speeds

    So folks, I got my Nexus 4 today and then came the process of calling AT&T and getting them to switch my unlimited 3g plan to an unlimited 4g hspa+ plan. I was all prepared with a fake Aprix 4G IMEI anticipating trouble since they won't be able to find the Nexus 4 in the system... but this was not the case! I gave the AT&T rep on the phone the IMEI from my Nexus 4, he immediately recognized it, switched me to unlimited 4G without a single hiccup!

    I think AT&T updated their system with the N4...

    Afterwards my dad speeds were still , I edited my APN settings with exactly the ones from above and I am up to 9MBPS downloading. Thanks a bunch everyone, and keep this in mind - no need to give fake IMEI numbers

    I know I was just posting how unhelpful she was. The lady I spoke to on the phone was much more helpful. She said just find someone with an old 4G or 4G LTE phone and have them give me their IMEI and as long as their phone has a Micro-Sim as well then that should get me to the 4G plan. She said she couldn't do it manually. However, she also said it couldn't be a phone in use or it would get rejected which makes me hesitant to use a "generator" or something. Thoughts?

    Interesting. I think it's more likely you got a competent agent with the ability to manually set the data plan. I have seen a few people say they spoke to such a person, but many more say they couldn't do it manually even if they tried. They definitely couldn't use the Nexus 4 to automatically update my plan and that was just a few hours ago.

    I'm having the same issues.

    LTE Unlimited 4G plan and I'm getting about 1.5-2 down. I've tried all the settings and can't get anything higher. Please help

    It could be the area you are in and the level of network congestion, etc. but it also maybe the APN type.

    With my Galaxy Nexus, I was barely breaking 2Mbps down with a 4G smartphone plan and the "phone" apn configured, even in areas where friends and colleagues were obtaining 5-6Mbps down.

    I did a little research into how exactly APNs work and what exactly needs to be configured to achieve the best speeds.

    The APN tells the handset which PDN (Packet DATA Network) to request from the network and then the network examines the requesting handset to determine if the account holder is permitted to attach to that network (i.e. does the account holder have the correct data plan for the desired PDN).

    One connected the APN tells the handset which types of services that specific APN is capable of. I discovered from research that fast download speeds (i.e. higher amounts of bandwidth being allocated to your handset for a specific time) are requested through the "hipri" APN type.

    Once I added "hipri" to my list of APN types, my speeds greatly improved. I am now consistently seeing 5-8Mbps down and some as high as 12Mbps down.

    I have tried many settings and my data is still crawling. I came from a Galaxy Note LTE. My plan online is listed as "Data Unlimited on 4G for LTE Smartphone"

    Can someone please run me though the APN settings please.

    Hipri is part of the phone APN... I know one guy posted a APN for phone without it but dunno where he got it

    Does anyone know why Speed test app says my data is over cellular and not HSPA. I even have the pta apn running and 4g LTE smartphone plan.

    It is denoting the type of connection, cellular or WiFi.

    It does not mean the type of cellular (i.e. GPRS, EDGE, etc.) connection.

    I believe HSPA+ is cellular.

    Not sure this is true. It shows LTE when on that network. From time to time, it shows HSPA. I see that extremely rarely. Maybe 1% of my speed test runs.

    I have never seen HSPA nor LTE as network types, but that does not mean it is not possible (as another poster has said he/she has seen it)

    Thanks for this thread! It has been very useful... Here are my findings...

    Got a Nexus 4. I'm new to ATT. Went into store. They gave me a SIM card and set me up on a Share Everything plan and sent me on my way. Got home, data doesn't work at all. Read this thread, figured out that I have to change my APN settings. Changed to the APN on page 2. Was only averaging 2mbs (which isn't bad). But further reading of this thread, it seems HSPA+ should be average around 8-12mbs. Did the whole "fake IMEI" setup with customer support to make sure I am on the HSPA+ plan. ATT now things I have an Infuse. After checking the status screen I do see that I am getting HSPA+ 15. NOTE: This changes to HSPA 10 when data is idle -- run a speedtest and check the status screen while it's running and you will see HSPA+ 15. After doing the "fake IMEI" I was still only averaging around 2mbs. So I chatted with Customer Support to verify everything was set up correctly. I then asked them what APN I should be using... Here is what he told me:

    Name: Cingular 410
    APN: wap.cingular
    Proxy: <Not set>
    Port: <Not set>
    Username:
    Password: CINGULAR1
    Server: <Not set>
    MMSC: <Not set>
    MMS proxy: wireless.cingular.com
    MMS port: 80
    MCC: 310
    MNC: 410
    Authentication type: <Not set>
    APN type: <Not set>

    Plugged that in... averaging now 4mbs. Twice the APN on the second page. Also ran both APN's through speedtest to verify consistency. This APN was always better. Is anyone finding this APN worthy?

    Ok I was FINALLY able to get it to work.

    Tip 1: Call the tech support line not the customer service line.
    Tip 2: Be prepared with a fake IMEI. I explained that I was using a fake one, but I doubt all the tech ppl are that cool. NONE of the customer service line people were. If you can't find one contact me.
    Tip 3: You might as well use an LTE plan if you can, but you have to have a semi-new micro sim. I didn't so I had to use a fake Atrix 4g IMEI. I could get a new one, but I don't really care since I'm sure I'll never see band 4. Just make sure whatever phone you are spoofing has a micro sim.

    Good luck!

    I've been wondering, which mms setting is better 80 or 8080. Everyone says to use 8080 if mms isn't working but is there a downside to setting 8080?

    I couldn't figure out why the Speed Test app wouldn't work, so I finally put in the proper settings, and am getting HSPA+ I'm getting 5.27 down, and 1.5 up which isn't great, but I get poor service at home anyway. I'll be testing at work, and see what I can get. Going from 50mbps down to this will be tough but the rest of the phone should more than make up for it. I haven't ditched my LTE plan either, and don't plan on it. Some people say you have to, and other say you don't so I won't because it seems unnecessary.

    I got my Nexus 4 today. I had to activate a new sim. I went into AT&T and most of them have never even seen this phone, they where really impressed! Also the IMEI doesn't exists in the AT&T databases they called corporate and had no clue what my IMEI was. This is not an issue however because you can have a manager override the IMEI and give you a dummy one. Now AT&T can't figure out what my phone is ;-) For me I have a unlimited data plan that I've been grandfathered into. (P.S. they asked me 100 times to change my plan to a different one--- THAT they are just trying to cut people out slowly) I got my phone activated then begin to hack the network to LTE. In order to do this you need to change a few things in the phone.

    I've tried the APN settings in this thread, speeds are horribly slow - I've done the call to ATT&T Tech Support, made sure I was on a 4G plan, double checked the APN setting and still at a snails pace on data speeds.
