Remove Proxy servers?

    I am just not getting the greatest speed, faster than my warp, but not great (normally around 900)... I have 4g service here, and have tried 3g which is slow as ever.

    I know with the warp I removed the sprint proxies, and it sped the 3g up to better than what the 4g is on this phone.
    Is there a how to guide that I am missing?

    I do have boost if that matters....

    Edit: also is not the proxy the way that they throttle our speed?

    AFAIK the throttle controls are actually on the phone in data/system/throttle. Delete everything in that folder and edit the permissions to lock the folder up and hypothetically you should be good. Why they would leave the controls for that on the phone I have no idea.

    As far as proxies go, I'm not sure. If you're root, wireless tether has an option to specify your own DNS. I just use Google Public DNS, and I get pretty fast speeds on 3g and basically broadband speeds on 4g (between 3-5 mbps down and 1-2mbps up).

    I just removed all the permissions. No read, write, or execute for anyone.

    WOW!!!!! Those are some great speeds. So, have you confirmed that deleting and locking up permissions works for speed?

    What I was more after was how to get away from the proxy that is programmed in, unless that does not exist on this phone ... I know on the warp it was dial ##3282# then change your multimedia proxies to

    Made a real improvement on speed ....

    Then what you're talking about is above my pay grade. I'm not familiar with the built in proxy.

    And I haven't been able to confirm whether deleting that stuff takes care of the throttle because don't even know if boost has started throttling yet. That's just the rumor

    I went into their In edit mode and changed the DSS Proxy server IP address to
    and the DSS Proxy server port to 0

    I don't really notice any difference, but my connection is not very consistent here.

    I removed both "multimedia" proxies. It helped the 3g speeds a lot, but not the 4g speeds which are fast enough anyhow...

    I mean I removed that on my Design not sure if their is any difference but at lest everything seams to work like it did before, someone else could try to do this and see if their is a difference.

    odd, I don't know why you guys are getting such low speeds on 4g. Normally i hit 5-6mbps, and on full signal up to 8mbps. best I got on 4g was 8836kbps.
