    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.

    Open CDMA Workshop.
    Dial ##8778# on phone
    Enter MSL
    change uart to usb.
    send default samsung code

    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)

    Hey fellaz..how's everyone...first off happy new years to all...when I joined this forum I had the prevail,and I learned about root and the how to's just browsing as a guest..that's what made me join...so thanks to all for all the blood,sweat,and tears creating these roms themes and all other goodies the devs come up with..I to am interested in the 3g tweak..I did it to my prevail and noticed the difference..I just got the transform ultra and my speeds suck and where I live the signal sucks. Would it be possible(if its not to much trouble) to get a full detailed how to on this tweak for the t.u...I'm still learning about rooting and don't want mess any thing up LOL..thank you in advance...

    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 :D

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



    As you could see, huge improvements!

    just a noob question but what is the difference between uart and usb? why is it faster(please in noob lingo) to use usb?
    thanks for the extra info

    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
