    Anyone have an issue with there 3G and overall signal being very poor after the OTA update? Now not getting 3G or even 1x at times in my cube where before I had 3G all the time. Did a *228, reboot, battery pull and nothing seems to help.

    I have been getting terrible 3g speeds today. Hopefully it was just the network getting inundated with dx 2.2 upgrades. If not, this is going to suck.

    Not to rub it in or sound sarcastic but I've actually been getting pretty good speeds. In fact, browsing with Froyo feels faster in 3G and WiFi, though that may be due to optimized loading and not connection speeds.

    My signal has been pretty low since the update as well.

    I did numerous speed test last night and I was getting about 5-8mb ul, 3-4mb dl on my router with about 100ms latency, but switching over the 3G I only got 500kb on the dl and ul at best with 350ms latency. BUT I did the same this morning and the 3G speeds have increased.

    I think Verizon in general was slammed yesterday and maybe overflowing into today - Wait a couple weeks and then run some test, that should be a true value of what this build can do.

    My signal hasn't changed though through the entire ordeal.

    If they're slammed it should not cause 3G to drop to 1x and even no data and voice to be lower as well in the same areas that there was no issues prior.
