    I can't wrap my non-linear mind around the numbers. On the speedtest.net app, what numbers should I be seeing! My phone is soooo slow! Verizon finally got tired of blaming my phone, and put in a work ticket to check towers where I live.

    As always, thank you in advance.

    It's been anywhere from 2-3 mbps for the last 2 months, I was avg. 5-10mbps in the summer
    it seems every push they send slowed the phone more

    So why are we paying 4G rates for 3G speeds????????????????
    I noticed alot more "servers"lately, does it matter wich one? tried a few and basically all the same results
    again why are we paying for 4G @ 3G speeds???

    4g costs the same as 3g. That's not a valid argument. Idk why you guys have these problems I have 10-11 mbps down average with peeks of 18-20. Try dialling ##778# I forget what has to be changed, but something under a modem setting. Will help out the speeds definitely. If not, root and install a custom radio and you'll be good

    Maybe it has something to do with the shear number of RAZR, Rezound, and Nexus's that were sold over the last 1-2 months.

    You thunderbolt owners aren't the only ones using up all the 4g anymore.

    That's why throttling is wrong. They make more and more money, and we suffer!

    It worked when I was rooted. Take it to a store replicate it in front of a rep and you'll get it figured out

    Well I could do the ##778# when rooted over the phone csrs should be able to help but it'd better for them to see it

    I'm pretty sure that the tbolts speed test app is broken. My tbolt showed speeds comparable to other 4g phones before gingerbread but after gb they do not, despite the phone being noticeably faster

    I have used different speed test apps. My Wifi is over 21 down, 6 up. But the Vs 4g network is crawling along at 2-3 down & less than 1 up.
