    OK I am showing 2 bars of 3g with my signal at -93 and I ran speed test. I got a whopping 176 kbps download speed. This is really bad right? Or does that sound about right?

    On a side note, how do I take a screen shot? I wanted to upload the pic of my speed test, but I can't find out how to take the screen shot.

    Sounds like 3G. Don't know what you were expecting.

    I get pretty poor 3g speeds a lot of the time too. Very similar to what you're seeing. Luckily most of my phone use comes when I'm on WiFi so it's not a huge issue for me. However, I still don't know why 3G has been so slow lately, my understanding is that is should be much closer to 700 - 1000 kbps on decent 3G.

    That's my thinking as well. My OG Droid would get faster 3g speeds.

    I think a lot of it just depends on location. Just out of curiosity I just turned my wifi off and ran a 3g speed test now. I'm currently getting 730 kbps. That seems acceptable, but I have gotten as low
    120 kbps around my area too.

    For screen shot push volume down and power button at the same time. Sometimes it takes a couple trys to get the timing just right.

    Had decent 3g speed on my inc, haven't and will not use it on my nexus with 4g. No way I'm going back now:D
