Default 3G speeds

I'm not getting good 3G speed. I noticed that there was a way to speed up the 3G speed on the Samsung Galaxy Prevail. Will that work with the Ultra or is there another way?

Doesn't seem to work for me. Even when I put in the info speeds seem to be the same or worse. I was hoping to maybe change the prl on this phone cause that seems to work for others but I'm having a problem trying to do it.

Unfortunately, I used my free trial of that program and can't use it. So I tried QPST, but for some reason, when I connect my phone to use it I get a message that says the phone isn't responding when I try to edit the prl.

What speeds are you getting? I'm getting the speeds Sprint advertises. I get an average of 500k. 1.5-1.7mb on a great signal. But usually 200-300k when I really need to use the internet. But something always happens when you really need something.

Didn't think about trying it on the transform ultra til now, I just did and it works. Was getting 500kbps at most from home since I got the phone a month ago, now I am getting >800kbps. Tried 4 times and got 967, 880, 833 and 907. However I have had better 3g speeds elsewhere without changing the proxy settings, most was 1762kbps at work. But this is good speeds for the reception I have at home.

Just for reverence ... What were the ORIGINAL FACTORY (SPRINT) settings?
Do you need an APP to make the change or can you do this in the settings like the older cell phones?

This is relative to the over the air settings right?
How are you testing/determining your speeds?
What are the risks of doing this?

I'm sorry, but I just got this phone this week. I'm on the learning curve trying not to fall over a cliff. (BG)

Before I did any tweaks + default boost PRL = about 100 kbps :\

Now that I'm on a Sprint PRL + Used the 3g SuperCharger tweak/script + blob.prop tweak + enabling 4gv + V6 SuperCharger Tweak/Script = 800 kbps+

Way better than what I had before

EDIT: BTW I have a Samsung Transform Ultra running ShevRoN Rom v0.3 so yes it will work Here are some pics

You're going to have to switch to USB so the program like CDMA Workshop or whichever program you're using could read/edit your device

Wait I'm confused. I thought all I needed to do was switch to usb. I have to do something else to boost my 3g? What is cdma workshop. And still wondering what the diff is in usb and uart?

Rule number one ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS DO A NANDROID BACKUP! before making any major changes so that you can revert if you break something.

I don't remember changing locations though

EDIT: and even when I had full bars I would get about 10-50 kbps before tweaking anything

Talking I had the same problem, but here is the solution

after you dail ##8778#
enter your MSL and change uart to usb
dail ##7678#
enter your MSL again, and change UMS to DM
this will cause the phone to restart, but it will open up another port for the phone and allow CDMA to read/write from/to your phone once it boots back up.
