    I don't know why but my new GS2 is getting slow data speeds...My girlfriend's Atrix 2 gets consistently 5 to 6+mbps. Using the same server, my GS2 only pulls in 2-3mbps. My family members also got GS2s and I'm seeing similar results on their phones.

    I tried Speedtest app, Speakeasy site, AT&T speed test...Does the GS2 just have a bad antenna? I thought this was supposed to be a great phone. It says H+ so I know there's 4G reception..

    We just activated our accounts today. Maybe it's because the number transfer is still in process with T-Mobile. My girlfriend has had AT&T for a while.

    I guess it's not THAT big of a deal. I was just really stuck between getting GS2 and Atrix 2. Chose the GS2 because of all the raving reviews, and now I see my girlfriend's A2 getting twice the download speeds, lol.

    At&t's hspa network is a joke right now. Last few days I've been getting speeds of 0.50 - 0.96 mbps.

    The Atrix 2 is getting twice the speed from the same spot. I know it has to be the phone, not the network.
