    Is this a sprint issue? Just started yesterday.
    I think it's so slow that it's causing my phone to lock up randomly. I tried wiping the data. Didn't help...

    I've seen it with both Sprint and VM intermittently at times...with no apparent pattern.

    I attribute it to load, most people download far more than upload. Lots of people downloading=slow download.

    Starting day #3 with no data download. :( This sucks, it worked perfectly, about 300-500K downloads until Monday. Now it's between 5K-20K. Phone is useless.

    See what the phone does in a different location with plenty of bars. If it's still poor, call VM and ask them to do a trouble ticket on it. Use the SpeedTest app to see what it's reporting.

    Probably a ton of people buying inexpensive androids (me) putting a strain on the system they may have to play catch up for a while.
