Default admire being slow

so i put the 3025 prl on last night and it still shows 1x, which im assuming i guess theres no 3g in my area yet. i live in lowell,MA btw. anyways my phone has been acting reaaaaally slow lately and thats before and after i updated my prl. even when im connected to wi-fi its still slow. also i tried using ASTRO to delete my bloatware but it keeps telling me it cant delete it. I've also tried using a different file manager but it says the same thing. any help would be greatly appreciated thanks

or you can just use titanium backup to delete bloatware with one click..also you may want to clear your cache with cachemate (dont use the power clear function)
as far as your phone actng slow, is it slow as in using data services (wifi, mobile network) or slow all around?

Just delete the bloatware, and your phone should have no problems. As far as internet being slow, if there's no 3g in your city, you're basically stuck with 1x
My store rep told us that they're not putting 3g towers in a lot of cities, mainly just Texas, Cali, and Florida. I think Georgia is getting it.
