    I have a Lumia 900, and I have loved it from day 1, however I have hated AT&T from day 1.

    Now they are throttling my LTE data and I used just over 2GBs of data.


    Does anyone know of a way to bypass this somehow by changing the APN or something? I know this is possible on android phones so I was just wondering if someone knew of a fix?

    Thanks in advance!

    Actually AT&T throttles LTE data after you pass 5GB. 3G data is throttled after 2GB.

    Bypassing throttle isn't possible on WP.

    AT&T doesn't throttle grandfathered unlimited users who use LTE at 2gb


    Heck they don't throttle hspa/3G until u hit 3GB.

    Att throttles LTE data users starting at 5 GB.

    So not sure where you get your information from.

    Where are you getting this information?

    AT&T's policy is you get throttled after 3GB of data on 3G/HSPA+ and a separate meter of 5GB of data usage before throttling on LTE.

    I use LTE because it is faster than the cr*ppy ISP I have where I live.

    Sorry about the typo meant to say 5GB of data has been used.

    My data connection has been throttled. Is there a way to bypass it through the APN settings?

    I used to use Google VOICE SMS. It's free. The only thing it doesn't support are the automated SMS messages, and MMS. There should be some clients you can use MetroTALK for this purpose.

    Last month I used over 50GB. That's not counting my WiFi amount. My phone is my computer.
