    Guys, is there any reason that download speeds over my Wifi are soooo slow? I'm downloading a 150MB file from usenet and it's going to take about 20 minutes. Same file from this pc over the same Wifi takes under 2 minutes. I'm not looking for the exact same speed (though it would be awesome), but something more reasonable would be nice. Could it be the SD card is too slow in write performance? Just wondering if this is an issue with the phone, or a simple SD card upgrade.

    try downloading it directly to the internal storage and see if it makes a difference.

    Ha, never thought of that! :eek:

    Is there an option to do that? When I hold the link and select save, it automatically goes to the SD card.:confused:

    OK, found out how to change to location to Phone storage instead of SD Card. Downloading the same file now and it's definitely quicker. Still not close to laptop speed, but a huge improvement. So it looks like I need to pick up a quicker SD Card unless btunes starts reading internal memory at some point.

    Thanks for the tip.;)
