    When i try to watch videos it takes forever or not at all.Buffers forever.
    Yet co-workers with another carrier streams fine.
    Any thoughts why this is?

    and how many bars does the other person's phone show? And what carrier are they on?

    Some carriers do indeed have faster 3G speeds. I believe it would also depend on how many people are using the same sprint tower as you are at that time, compared to how many people are using the other tower (assuming the same signal strength on both carriers, which isn't that likely)

    Have you updated your PRL recently...might want to do that.

    Download the speedtest app and see what kind of download speeds you're getting. Are you sure you're on EvDo and not 1x?
