    1. Get your MSL, There are many ways, call Sprint, Download the app MSL Reader from the market (didn't work for me), CDMA workshop, connectbot, or alogcat
    1.5. In connectbot, type:
    Code: [Select]
    Find [ril.MSL] and write MSL down

    1.5.2. For alogcat (from the market), follow steps 2 and 3 and click ok. It will way "code invalid". Then open alogcat, pause the log and do a filter search for "msl", you're looking for a six digit number. Mine was in black text.
    2. After you have your MSL go to your phone and type ##3282#
    3. Click Edit
    4. Type MSL
    5. Click Others
    6. Click Multimedia
    7. Change RTSP Proxy Address to
    8. Change RTSP Proxy Port to 0
    9. Change HTTP PD Proxy Address to
    10. Change HTTP PD Proxy Port to 0
    Note on 8 and 10: Just the number zero, nothing else.

    I'm assuming step 7 needs to look like this, right?

    Must your phone be rooted to do this?

    The only part that requires root is getting your msl.
    But a way to get around it is by calling sprint and asking them what it is.

    You put the IP address of your phone I believe. At least, that's how WinSCP worked..... I'd personally do step 1.5.2 Much easier

    So will flashing different ROMs change these values? Or do they stay the same no matter what? I ask because I currently have Platium EB28 ROm and I cant get back into the ##3282# menu. It refuses to go there. I type it and after typing the last # the numbers just go away and i am not reroutedd anywhere.

    I made the changes but wanted to go back in there and cant. The ##3282# is not working since I did it. Using vampirefo's EXT recovery, 2.0.9 kernel and platinum Rom. Any ideas?

    I made the original changes as mentioned by speeder760. It seems faster to me but I wanted to revert to the original settings again to test it more. However when I enter ##3282# nothing happens. It literally disappears from the screen.

    After I entered the incorrect code once, the ##3282# feature locked up for me. It unlocked as soon as I rebooted the phone.

    Thanks guys for this.
    Before: 299 Kbps UP / 533 Kbps DOWN
    After: 408 Kbps UP / 805 Kbps DOWN

    That's with 3-4 bars of signal.
