    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
