Using speedtest.net, at the house I'm getting an average of:
Download 65 kbps
Upload 73 kbps
Does this seem more that a little slow?
The phone will usually show 3G and 1-4 bars. Sometimes though, it'll show 1x and sometimes it'll show no service where other Verizon phones are showing 2-4 bars. I've had to reboot the phone several times to get it to recognize service. It will shut itself off as many as 6 times a day for no reason that I can see. I've only had the phone 3 days. And I'm quite frustrated with the download/upload speed.
Lately I've started reprogramming it with *228  and . When I do this the phone seems to hang onto the service better for maybe 20 minutes before it starts showing "no service".
