1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    Hi all,
    I got a new droid in january and up until about 3 days ago everything was running great. Youtube was fast, pandora was fast, but recently I couldn't even get either one to work. Web pages took minutes to open and facebook took 2-3 minutes to update. I downloaded speedtest.net application and have been running the scan in different places like school on wifi, home where I always have full service, friends houses, random places and the download speeds have been varying between 43-70 KBPS while upload speeds are consistantly in the 700's. Verizon support was useless and I haven't really found anything recommended for this. The only apps I have are pandora, speed test, and a chess game. Almost full memory. Does anyone know any way to help with thid? Any help is greatly appreciated!
    Thanks, Fred
