Although my Pre 3 registers on the AT&T network lightning fast since I flashed the modem, there are inherent risks that go along with flashing your modem. It's possible I may have damaged my chipset and not know it yet.

I have not tested the following process, however I think it will do the trick. You may want to make a copy of your /usr/bin/modem/palm_nv_items.txt file first.
1 - edit /usr/lib/modem/palm_nv_items.txt on your pre 3 (or copy it to your pc using WOSQI, edit it then copy it back to its original location on your Pre 3.
2 - change these two lines from:
3 - to this:
4 - Do not add any extra characters
*** Make sure to save your changes
5 - Restart your Pre 3
EDIT: I have now had an chance to check and my /usr/lib/modem/palm_nv_items.txt file does contain the change noted above, confirming the change works. If you want to replace the entire section here it is - changes in bold:
#PALM NV ,Set Default Carrier to AT&T for now.
