    1st problem is you need an English class for your terrible run-on sentence. Start there.....

    Sounds like a network problem. Did your speed suddenly drop, or has it always been this bad since you got the phone?

    You're not automatically throttled on speed when you have downloaded a certain amount, right? Don't know your unlimited data plans. Some vary quite drastically as to what's defined as unlimited.

    Are you and you friend on the same carrier with the same data plan? If you put his sim card in your phone, will he still get the same results? Your card in his phone?

    at first the phone was really fast then all of the sudden slowed then like 3 weeks later gained speed again i am on the new unlimited nationwide 4G from T-mobile my friend is also on T-mobile we can't switch sim cards because my S3 use mini sim but the problem is like i said his phone side by side is way faster then mine 11MB download vs 1.5 MB or less on my phone is not funny that is why i think is a hardware issue

    Real problem is that you have been given an S3 without a full stop on it.

    Return it while still under warranty.

    He is saying you do not use punctuation properly in your posts. He jokes that maybe the full stop on your keyboard is faulty.

    Poor punctuation makes it unnecessarily difficult to read your posts (and help). Please try to use full stops in future

    You people have really got to lay off the grammar nazi stuff.

    I admit it is a bit hard to read his post, but the put downs are not necessary.

    English is not the first language of many people here.

    If you want to help, that's great. If his sentence structure is too much for you, then move on.

    Back on topic:

    You may have a network issue going on. I'd wait a bit, maybe a day or so, to see if it clears up.

    If the problem continues, take the phone in and have it looked at.

    Just a bit of gentle fun. Didn't mean to upset you :) For your information I do try and help people as many people on here have helped me.

    BTW your English is just fine. Just a little hard to read without ending your sentences with the occasional full stop.

    he and his friend on TMobile .. sitting next to each other... runs speed tests.
    the old S2 kills his S3.

    My faulty sim took me down to 56k once. Theres no substitute for getting another sim and trying it. Although it may just need the contacts wiping,
