    I dont understand... how are you people getting throttled i have UNLIMITED 4g data with my bionic, and I broke down and bought the UNLIMITED mobile hotspot service from VZW for $30/month and use it as my only internet connection for my 2 laptops xbox 360 ps3 and wii. I use on average 50-80 Gb/ month [​IMG]and have never seen slowed speeds, what are you guys doing that VZW is throttling you?

    I believe the key word there is "4G". I've read in several posts that verizon is not throttling 4G at this time. If that's true, then that's probably the reason your not being throttled. Unfortunately, I'm still stuck in 3g land.

    Uhh... Why not grab SQLite and go to the first SettingStorage and you will find about 5 "Throttle" lines under "Settings.db/Secure". And just edit all of their fields to "0" and then reboot? Boom. You are unthrottled.

    So what is the consensus on this issue? Is there any confirmed throttling? I'm stuck in 3g land is well and have noticed decreased speed while doing large downloads. The data system folder that is mentioned does have a temp files but the files that is only numbers has a completely different name from the 1 mentioned in the o p

    Makes no difference what the numbers are I found out. My friends phone had different number too do we deleted it anyway and it worked great. I know my speed doubled after removing that folder.

    Do you have 4g or 3g and did you restart the phone after deleting the file?

    Unfortunately I live in 3g land. I did restart the phone. I guess I am just not being throttled? what speeds are typical for 3g?

    Honestly, I have no idea. I noticed when I was downloading a file from btjunkie at 5kbps, when normally I average about 120kbs. As soon as I removed the folder it jumped back up again. I'm guessing your not being throttled if you didn't notice a difference

    This completely worked for me. On one bar of 4G in my home, I barely would get 2.5Mbps download and 1.5Mbps up. Now, I am getting around 9Mbps down. When I have a better signal, I'm averaging 20Mbps down.

    I think this just goes to show that VZW does limit download speeds.
