Flashing AreaRom2.2 is the next step, that should increase your phones speed.

It might be your coverage. The Precedent plays YouTube videos just fine as stock. If you live in an area with a lot of saturation it's unlikely a new ROM will increase your download speed that much even with the proxy changes.

The Arearom supposedly has a few tweaks to add a little more horsepower to the phone, but you're still going to be at the mercy of how much data comes down the pipe - hence the buffering.

akashik does have a point, it depends on your coverage. You can try flashing a PRL and see if that helps any.

Iam glad to hear AreaRom worked out for you, did you have any trouble installing it?

No, a new radio isn't going to give you signal where there is none. The Precedent radio is pretty decent as cellphone radios go. If you're in an area with no Sprint signal (that's what the Precedent runs on), maybe an AT&T or TMobile phone will work better for you. Check with friends who use those carriers when they're in your house to see whether they get good signals.

I'm surprised that Walmart sells Precedents in areas that don't have good Sprint coverage. Then again, Walmart employees aren't hired for their extensive knowledge.
