Just got my Galaxy S3 (Verizon) last week, and I have been having problems with the 3G connection on it. Testing in the same spot where my Droid X would pull 1.5mbs(my house), I am getting around 400kbs on average using Speedtest.net. Sometimes it jumps up to ~1mbs, but if I run 10 tests back to back I would call the average 400kbs, with the lowest being 67kbs!!! I've also noticed that it can barely run Pandora when I'm driving(skips every ~30 seconds, not HD streaming), while the DX would run it silky smooth. I turned off 4G and WIFI and that didn't help at all. This doesn't seem normal, or is the antenna Samsung used completely useless? I really like the phone, but it's totally useless to me if the 3G is going to run at near dial up speeds, and the actual reception is much weaker than my DX was. If this is a Samsung issue it's getting traded in for the Maxx so I have a smartphone I can actually use I purchased it knowing that it was going to be weaker than Motorola, but it's all but useless without WIFI right now. Thanks for any help!
