    Ok, so I'm starting to have some issues getting on the internet with my 3G Slide...I'm not able to get onto the internet as fast I used to. It sits and sits and takes minutes before it will load a simple page. At home I can understand, I have a weak signal. But at work we have a T-Mobile tower right on site and it still does the same thing.

    2nd issue, not really an issue, but I use Hotmail email for my phone and everything outside of that. When I delete messages from my hotmail account online they are also deleting off the phone, like it's set up for imap, but it's set up as pop3. Some messages I want on my phone but not on my web account. Is there a way to change this?

    Try taking your 2G/3G mode out of automatic. If you get solid 3G where you're at put it on WCDMA only if it's iffy put it on GSM only. You can even get a toggle for it on the market I use power control plus.

    I tried do that and then I couldn't get online at all from my phone. So I switched it back to auto. It's moving a bit faster now that I played with a little.

    Like you said in another thread, it could be the network and not your phone. I'm in AZ as well and yesterday my 3G connection was really slow even when I had a good signal.

    My 3G has been better here in Phoenix. It was really bad a few weeks ago.
