    The qslide is actually pretty cool for multi tasking, in this pic the bottom square is a video playing, the ram usage is shown right after hitting clear

    What's spark?

    Also, someone was asking for a screenshot of the internal storage...bear in mind I have quite a few apps installed beyond stock...at least a GB worth.

    More like, Spark actually comes close to giving Sprint actual LTE speeds.

    Judging by those speedtest screens it's a bit unstable.

    Just got my Volt two days ago and love it! Battery life is insane compared to my old optimus v.

    Only problem i'm having is ever since I got it, i'm recieving messages for 999-999-9999 with a bunch of random symbols. Tried blocking it in the account settings but they still come through.

    It will always be imbalanced between up and down stream; in fact the standard is designed that way. The LTE standard allows for up to 300 Mbps down and only 75 Mbps up; granted, I'm not aware of any carrier that theoretically offers much over 100 Mbps down, currently. I'll agree, though, the 38 Mbps down and 1 Mbps is just bad.

    I know upstream and downstream are never equal. All internet bandwidth is like that. But your screenshot was like 38 down and 1 up. That's a little ridiculously low on the upstream... It's typically about 1/5 the downstream (about 8 is what I would expect in this case). o_O

    Hey at least LTE is faster then Sprints 3G. Also how bad is LTE when you go over your 2.5GBs

    If you exceed 2.5GB, they straight up shut off your LTE.

    Eh... Pretty much on par with every other 'unlimited data' plan. They all throttle you after a point.

    I've noticed the same thing as well; at times, phone will connect to LTE for less than a minute, then will flip to 3G. Toggling Airplane mode, same thing will happen. This is in an area clearly covered by Spark (Brooklyn NY)
