    For those who are currently using skyrocket with tmobile at 2g (edge) speed, here is a tested and working solution.

    The Method is tested by me and worked at the first try with no problems at all. But you will do this at your own risk. I do not take any responsibility.

    Requirements:
    ATT Skyrocket i727
    Unlocked
    on ICS official stock firmware


    Ok So first of all you need a CWM and need to root the phone
    If you are already rooted and have CWM installed skip to where it says flashing radio.

    download CWM/Root files

    unzip
    Connect your device to the computer in downloading mode (Turn off>hold volume up and down at the same time>plug in to the computer)
    Once it is connected in the Downloading mode. Run odin3 v1.85.exe
    you should see yellow in the first COM
    click PDA and select recovery-cmw-hercules.tar
    click start
    Once finished successfully, the phone will reboot.

    Now copy CWM-SuperSU-v0.87.zip to the sd card or internal storage
    put the phone in CWM mode (hold volume up and down and press power button> let go the power button once the screen turns off and you feel the first vibration. continue to hold volume up and down)

    Then CWM should show up. navigate to install zip from sd card. press power button to select. select the zip file from where you stored it. click yes. if it fails first time just go back and select the zip file again and do it again. it should work in 2-3 tries.

    once that is done reboot the device. you should see super user icon in the application menu.
    **************************************************************************************************************************************
    Flashing radio
    Now download the following zip file and put it on sd card or internal storage. Download Here
    Boot in to CWM (look up above on how to do this)
    Click on install zip from sd card
    select the Tmo_SGH-T879-UVLG3_radio.zip
    click yes. This should flash your radio to the tmobile version of Galaxy Note.

    Enjoy the 4G speeds.


    I think this should also work with the ATT Note because the above radio is from the Tmobile version of Galaxy Note. But I haven't tested it. If someone has the ATT note please try and confirm.

    I just switched over to T-Mobile myself. The 1900Mhz refarm worked for me in LA (will try it again when I get to SF), but I'm gonna try flashing some T-Mobile radios anyway to get broader HSPA+ coverage.

    So far, I've only heard of people flashing the T989 and Blaze radios. But, I would think the Note should work since it uses the same processor. I'll add that to my list of radios to try. Will update if something goes wrong w/ the above radio.

    Update: The radio works on Slim Bean 3.1. In fact, I've also tried the Blaze (LB7) and Hercules (LE1) radios, and they worked too. It probably won't work on the recent JB leak, but perhaps other custom roms are also compatible.

    You might need the UVMC6 radio from this thread, which is the radio that came w/ the T-Mobile version's 4.1.2 update. The recent 4.1.2 Touchwiz update may not recognize ICS radios out of the box.

    I wouldn't suggest messing with radios. You can be left with a bricked device...
