    Default Turn off lte..

    Ok,i know some of you are gonna wonder "why would you want to turn off lte you ***** .?" Or " just turn off mobile data when your not usuing it" and so on,and ill say for battery life increase(: and might possibly use less data if you have a data cap like me. First,this isnt a way to turn of lte,but rather get your phone to connect to Hspa+ and not connect to lte,best thing about it,you CAN switch back and forth lte when YOU choose to. Go to settings>more settings>APN > and hit menu,and select new apn.
    Then type in the following in the corresponding fields.
    Name: AT&T WAP
    APN: wap.cingular
    Proxy: <not set>
    Port: <not set>
    Username:
    passwork: <not set>
    Server: <not set>
    MMSC:
    MMS proxy: wireless.cingular.com
    MMS port: 80
    MCC: 310
    MNC: 410
    Authentication type: default
    APN protocal: IPv4

    Do not mess with the ones that say "not set" Now go back then select this Apn and you should drop off lte and onto Hspa+ , give it a few min. as it wont change right away.
    This is not bullet proof as i have experienced some no data connection moments but i thought id just put it out there for those who wish to turn off lte on their choosing.

    If your on lte,your network connection icon will say "4G" with the 3 letters "LTE" underneath,if your just on hspa,itll just say "4G"..

    In theory,it might. Cause i dont know forsure but they throttle your network by exactly just that,by assuming your phone is still usuing the original Apn it was already on. Changing it might let you slip by their throttling walls. And have a pretty decent connection speed. Id cheak it out it i where you. Be pretty sweet to never be throttled and use all the data you can. Its like being at a buffet and never getting full lol.

    I hope you guys know you can just flash a custom rom that has a GSM network toggle. Will give you the options:

    GSM Only
    GSM/HSDPA (auto)
    HSDPA (Only)
    LTE/HSDPA/GSM (auto)

    GSM means EDGE

    I never even bothered trying the APN method once I figured the SIM trick. I used it without LTE for almost 2 weeks with zero issues whatsoever.
