    Ok guys it now is day 3 with the zenfone 2 and for some reason the data is not working. Ive changed the APN settings several times and no avail. Somehow for a strange reason when making a call data turns on to 3g and the H+ but no LTE. I tried surfing the web and viola but as soon as I hang up data is gone. These are my settings as of now. If any of you have this phone on metro and have data working please help. Thanks in advance.

    Metro PCS (don't think it matters tho)
    APN - fast.t-mobile.com
    MMSC - http://mms.msg.eng.t-mobile.com/mms/wapenc
    APN type - default,mms,supl

    I'm not with Metro but see if changing the MMSC to the one in this thread helps. Metro Pcs / TMobile 4G or LTE Not Working , … | AT&T HTC One (M7) | XDA Forums

    Tried those APN settings jpr and it would only get me as far as 3G and H+ but the phone had to be changed to 2G/3G in the settings. After awhile they were gone and I switched the settings to 2G/3G/4G and it kinda worked. After some digging here in the forums this is what worked for me. Thanks to ambassador Rukbat for posting this.

    Try this as your APN settings:

    Name: MetroPCS (this is just so you know which one it is - you can name it anything)
    APN: fast.metropcs.com
    MMSC: http://mms.metropcs.mmsmvno.com/mms/wapenc
    MMS Proxy:
    MMS Port:
    Authentication tupe:
    APN Type: default,mms,supl
    APPN protocol:IPv4/IPv6
    APN roaming protocol:IPv4

    I'm having the same problem. It was working for an hour after I was at MetroPCS having them install the SIM, but my data just stopped working.

    Thank you josearmz. I copied your settings 100% and as soon as I switched to the new APN, 4G enabled.

    It's been working just fine for a good 15 min now. I'll update if anything else comes up

    Thanks! Worked like a charm, after 3 days of in and out (but mostly out) data. I'll let you know if anything changes.

    I created an account just to thank you. I haven't been able to send or receive pictures in forever and had just given up. Came across this and all I had to change was the APN Type and it worked immediately.
    Thank you so much!

    Thank you so much. Recently bought a locked At&t lg g3 phone, unlocked it and had to call Metro switch over from my iPhone 4 to my lg but the 3g/4g wasn't working. I followed these steps and it worked but my phone didn't have APPN protocol and APN roaming protocol. Just an update to who come across this with the same problem. Hope this not not going to screw anything up.......

    Thank you, Bought the phone at microcenter and then took in to Metro PCS corporate store to get setup. Man did I get ripped off. Paid 15 bucks just for them to get voice and text working. I had no data, but didn't realize it till after I got home. While searching up on it, came across this and fixed it in seconds. Turns out they put in the wrong APN. They had it as fast. t-mobile. com instead of fast. metropcs. com and then had to change APN protocol from just IPv4 to IPv4/IPv6. After making those two changes 4G works. My only question now is whether I can get 4GLTE or just 4G?
