    still trying the 3g tweeks in different combinations in order to get my 3g speeds back to normal..over the past few weeks my 3g speeds have completely droped off for some reason..i know that the speeds will constantly change up and down..and i have changed prls a few times..but i have switched back to boost prl and changed all the 3g tweeks ive made back to what they were originally. i used to get pretty high kbps but now im lucky to get 150 down 150up ..not sure what i did to all of a sudden change the good speeds i used to get..ive tested speeds at many different times of the day..never anymore than 100-200 kbps range down and up.any suggestions?

    also i was looking around the hidden menue

    edit->entered my msl->others->browser

    gatewayip-says not set
    port-not set
    secure port-not set

    does anyone els have similar settings? just trying to rule out everything for the massive drop off in my 3g speeds :thinking:

    Data throttling? Close to your reboost date? Stream a lot of music?

    Could be just too many people on not enough towers. You are in DC. Try testing very late when less users are likely to on

    two words: BLACK FRIDAY
    The prevail was 66% off. maybe many new boost customers in your area
    Dense population + inadequate towers + huge sale on prepay Android device with TONS of development support = no speedy Web.:D

    Plus boost has 3 Android phones out now. And if you really want to know if it is your setup, Odin to stock, test, compare
