    I have a factory unlocked Note II.......it only does 'edge' speeds on T-Mobile.

    It also shows that I'm roaming? all the time.

    Is there a fix/ work around..........or am I gonna buy another phone?

    Thanks all..........Ol'Ben

    re: Unlocked Note II and T-Mobile??

    So it's the GT-N7100 or GT-N7105?

    Edit - actually no matter which one, since T-mobile uses split band HSPA+ 1700/2100 and yours has 1900/2100 it won't work in most cases. Apparently T-mobile is starting to use 1900 in some cities, but it's not widespread. It may be in the future though.

    If you really want 3g/4g HSPA+ then you'll need the SGH-T889

    Amazing.....??
    At home I show roaming/ 'e'...........I drive around and I get 3G and/or H+.......they sorta rotate at will depending on the location.........eh??

    I checked my APN.....it shows both ATT and T-Mobile but will only register on T_mobile.
    But...........if I'm 'roaming'? ain't I off T-Mobile(possibly on ATT??

    Wish I could get it to register on both and use the auto cdma/ gsm feature.....

    Thanks T5............
    It's working but driving me more crazy.....Haw!!

    Start looking for a T889, I reckon.........Ol'Ben

    BTW.......I'd like to use the T-mobile plan.......$70 prepaid/ truly unlimited/ no throttle cap on the data--period/ wide open (if I can make it work...eh??)

    I would change the APN settings to t-mobile only: http://cellphoneforums.net/t-mobile/...id-phones.html

    It's only registered on T-Mobile.......ATT says my sim won't allow it.

    Update; last night I started getting 3G and H+ for short periods....??
    then I'd lose all signal.
    No phone at home ain't gonna get it.

    I can switch to 'gsm' only and I get roaming @ 'e'......but at least I have phone and text, I hope.

    I'm shopping for a t889. I'm sure that's my fix.

    Thanks t5......appreciated for sure.......Ol'Ben
