    Dell Streak 7 (4G) only connecting to EDGE ..

    Picked up a used T-Mobile branded Dell Streak 7 off of craigslist, took it to a T-Mobile store got the sim card and had it activated on the 2GB plan.
    Get it home and it only connects to EDGE! Very slow speeds. T-Mobile phone in same house gets 4G speeds.
    The box of the Streak 7 also says "4G capable".

    Any ideas why it might only be connecting to EDGE?

    Go to Mobile Networks setting and see is "GSM only" checked or selected; in addition, if you're able to use "WCDMA only" mode, use it.

    Thanks, that did the trick. It was set on "GSM only" switched it to the "WCDMA" only and it's picking up 4G now.
