    Default APN / What are the differences?

    Using Nexus 5 with T-Mobile Prepaid. There is a list of APN's to choose from. However, one is already selected? What are the differences in the unselected ones?

    *MetroPCS
    fast.metropcs.com

    *T-Mobile
    fast.t-mobile.com

    *T-Mobile GPRS

    *T-Mobile GPRS (selected by default)
    fast.t-mobile.com

    Although, I understand Metro PCS uses T-mobile, why are there 3 different T-Mobile APNs to choose from? Thanks in advance to whomever can enlighten me.

    Don't use APN with GPRS. It might be for older devices and might not support high speed (4G/HSDPA+ etc).
    Go with plain T-Mobile or erase current APN (make note about details) and download latest from TMo website...
    Current Devices : Motorola G 16GB
    Past devices :Sony Xperia SP C5303 LTE,S3 GT-I9305,S4 mini GT-I9195, N7100,HTC One (M7),Galaxy S3, HTC One S, HTC One X (S720e), Nexus Prime - HTC Pyramid - Nexus S - Samsung Galaxy S II - HTC Desire S - HTC Desire HD - HTC Desire Z - HTC HD2 - HTC Topaz - HTC Touch HD - HTC Touch Pro - HTC Diamond.
