    Started a T-Mobile no contract account with unlimited data. Worked fine when I had a connection. So today I went to AT&T and activated a go phone Sim and installed that. So far calls and texts are fine. I get a blue H and four bars mostly. Can't stream with Google music, can't download apps, web pages take forever. Supposedly have good hspa+ coverage but data so far sucks. Any suggestions would be great.

    Try searching here or Google for AT&T APN settings. If you've never set it up before, that's why.

    I use this:

    Nexus 4 ATT Settings

    Settings>More>Mobile Networks>Access Point Names

    The most important part is the next step, the reason everyone's getting crappy speeds is the APN. LG programed the default AT&T APN as wap.cingular, that's an old APN. Use the following settings and restart your phone. You should be all set.

    Name: AT&T
    APN: PTA
    Proxy:Not set
    Port:Not set
    Username:Not set
    Password:Not set
    Server:Not set
    MMSC: http://mmsc.mobile.att.net
    MMS Proxy: proxy.mobile.att.net
    MMS Port: 80
    MCC: 310
    MNC: 410
    Authentication type:default,admin,fota,mms,supl,hipri
    APN type: default,admin,fota,mms,supl,hipri
    APN protocol: IPv4
    APN Roaming:IPv4
    Bearer: Unspecified
    MVNO type: None

    Here the are levels, but may vary by location: Prepaid Cell Phone Plans, GoPhone Plans, & Prepaid Smartphone plans from AT&T

    Personally, I'm at $60 for unlimited voice and text, 2 gb data.

    Supposedly coverage is diminished, but I don't know by how much. Seems to be there for everywhere in my daily happenings. I'm saving $15-20 a month by this plan, which is fine by me.

    THANK YOU VERY MUCH!!!

    These settings worked for me. I am getting both LTE and H+ (even though my LTE speeds are showing less than the H+). They are a heck of a lot better than the 0.04mbps I was getting with stale cingular settings.
