    No HSPA+, only HSDPA

    So I've had H2O for a little over a week now and I've not been able to connect to the HSPA+ network. My mobile network type shows up as HSDPA.

    I've seen my Mobile Network Type flicker briefly to HSPA+, but it goes back to HSDPA.

    I'm using a used HTC One that the previous owner converted to a Google Play Edition. I'm running Android 4.4.2.

    I tried chatting with customer service. But they just had me verify my APN settings.

    Am I destined to only be able to get HSDPA connectivity?

    I think it goes to H+ when data is transferring and hsdpa in standby. My phone does that too. These screenshots was just a few seconds apart.

    My iPhone 4S is running older firmware which identifies my connection as: "4G".
    I was under the impression that meant HSPA+.
    It did this on AT&T, StraightTalk, and H2o, in the Los Angeles area.
    I believe it would say "3G", if the connection wasn't "+", but I could be wrong.
    now with H2O, after Straight Talk LTE sim debacle 4th Quarter 2013.
    Currently on locked AT&T iPhone 4S. (backup: iPhone 4)
    iOS: 7.1.2, carrier: AT&T 16.0 , modem: 5.2.00 , Data & MMS just fine.
    Previously at: iOS 6.1.3, carrier 14.2, modem 3.4.03 .

    My HTC One never says 3G or 4G in the status bar. It just has an "H" when it is on cellular data.

    Does anyone know how to interpret the signal strength numbers?

    Let's say the 3g or hspa+ dBm ranges from -55 to -113 the closer to -55 the better and -113 would be barely any signal at all. Anything between -55 and -98 I'd consider good. -99 to -103 I'd consider ok any lower you risk dropped calls and poor data speeds. I've personally been able to carry on a conversation just fine with -115 dbm but that isn't gonna be the case for everybody.

    H is normal for stock android. It is hspa. Some phone will display it as 3g, some as 4g.
