    Verizon throttles at the server, therefore you can do nothing to unthrottle. If this appears to speed up your phone, it's all in your head.

    Only very small companies throttle at the phone.

    Yeah, I haven't had time to change it yet :D


    Yeah, that's what I figured, but people still ask for this, and since it's simple enough to make the changes, I do it.

    But still, there must be a reason why the throttle files are on the phone.

    So I did a very small sample sized field test today:

    I streamed the same video on my way to work twice today (same direction). Without the hack applied there were a lot of skips. With it applied a few hours later, the file played perfectly. There could be a number of reasons for this, but for now, I'm at least intrigued.

    I'll use it for about a month and get a thorough synopsis ready. Streaming high quality music videos (strictly for the audio component) on youtube rarely results in a perfect playback for me.

    It can also affect roaming on your phone. Ive learned not to mess with those type of files.

    I've never had an issue with roaming using this mod.

    It would be fairly hard to throttle from the server because it would need to react absolutely instantly. It doesn't know when to throttle untill it reaches that limit. If you go into a phones framework, then services.jar, then classes.dex, then traverse to the right directory you will find the ThrottleServices.smali files. Deleting them actually does make your data faster.

    Get a speed test, thats the real proof

    yeah stay away from anti throttle apps they don't help and I've used up to 25 gigs... usually around 15, in a month and never saw any type of slowing down in my service... using the throttle hacks, i saw my 3g get cut every 15-20 minutes and my entire connection would restart
