so i've got the phone running great, but it seems like ever since i modded the phone my tethering services have been about a quarter as fast as they used to be... not that i'm getting blazing fast speeds (i kind of live out in the sticks) but it WAS better than a dial up connection (which i don't even have a landline to hook up to) and essentially free since we are already paying for the phones services.... was getting about 400-500 kbps, now its hovers around 100 kbps and sometimes gets up to 200, but rarely and its never sustained. i use both easytether and wifi tether, just downloaded barnacle and will give that a try. now i know cricket has like a 1 gig cap for downloaded info but i don't -think- that i've gone over that, and if i have, i'm not sure how to check. this is my first post after lurking for a bit, the info from some people on this site is great. thanks for your input in advance.
