    Ok so I just rooted unrevoked method and now my internet is slower than ever. Any website I go to takes anywhere from 1-3 minutes to load (not kidding). First I thought maybe sprint was throttling my data, but my wifes evo is fine. Do I need to do anything like update my radios?

    You didn't use the auto-rooter? Usually, the auto-rooter will flash the new radio, PRI and PRL and all that good stuff.

    I believe I did, started the unrevoked and plugged the phone in.

    Have you loaded any custom roms or are you still running the stock rom?

    If you havent changed your rom, try updating the PRL, rebooting and see what happens....

    Do you have Adfree installed on your Evo? It's been known to cause slow dl's. If you do, select "revert" and uninstall.

    I would also recommend reading this, nothing but positive results for 3g speeds have been achieved using this method.

    I dont know whats up with this thing. Now I am using wireless tether and when I am just surfing im seeing upwards of .5mb not great but on my phone I wasnt seeing that. I just went to netflix and my dl went from .7-1.3 or so that was while I was streaming a video.

    I will try that update since I am on stock rom. I havent decided to do anything more just yet.

    Soon I will be selling this phone to my sister and be upgrading to the 3D. Root that as soon as I can haha.

    Thanks so far guys.

    Hey, im thinking your radios might need updating for faster speed.... I cant recall the name of the file, but you can get verizon towers on your PRL... id ask evomattnc about that, he seems to be quite the expert on that particular subject
