    Seems slow to me man. I just went to the Speakeasy speed test site.

    2.58Mbps down
    0.37Mbps up

    Not sure if I should use a different site however.

    what does *228 then selecting #2 do

    I think I was reading that other people were having this problem and needed to call VZW customer service to have them do some tweaking on their end. Will give them a call tomorrow.

    *228 #2 updates the PRL (Prefered roaming list (I think)). It updates the roaming by basically sending your phone the towers that are to be roamed on.

    Shouldn't be. Maybe you just get crappy 3g reception where you are.

    So hard to rely solely on internet speed tests but for what it's worth in good coverage it should be around ~1000 dn ~500 up

    I think it maybe because in my city, there's very few smartphone users on VZW (all iPhones haha), and plus it's late. But still I was :D
