yeah, the upload always starts out around 1000 kbps but you can actually see it holding back. Looks like VZW is throttling it. Have no idea why.

My DX always has had crappy speeds with VZW. On 3G it is about 1/4th the speed of a typical AT&T phone. VZW has been 100% useless when it comes to even trying to help me. Just ONE of the reasons i dropped them.

I use my DX on Page Plus Cellular now. I am on WiFi 99.9% of the time so lack of data is a none issue. 1200 minutes and 3000 texts plus 100mb of data for $29.95 a month..........no taxes.........just a total of $29.95 per month.

When i do get a newer phone, when something that is truly a good upgrade comes out, it will most likely be with AT&t..................
