interesting video you guys may like... idk why the 3g is so slow even on my evo 3g is not that slow. Its usally 600-1200kbps and for surfing the web its not bad at all. I have plans to get the new iphone, so i hope they fix what ever is wrong with the network.
There is no official word from Sprint saying they will not do "data throttling".
The official word is "unlimited data plans for iPhone subscribers", which is different.
The fact of the matter is: speed test at the same location, same network (iphone 4s vs Epic) yields 2 drastically different results.
THis is awful... I switched from ATT to get unlimited data. I would get 2 to 3 MEG DL speed on Speed Test with 2 or 3 bars! I would get up to 5+ MEG speed with 5 bars. THis is ******** I've had 4 and 5 bars today and had EDGE speeds! WTFFFF!
Is Sprint 3G this BAD? These phones are geting returned if nothing changes
I have the same problem... downloads and uploads are pathetic...incredibly slow on the iPhone4S to the point where Siri does not work... websites that on my wifes phone take a second or two to load, take minutes to come up on the iPhone 4S... this is unacceptable and it seems to be a iPhone4s problem as my wifes Android Epic in 3G (4G turned off) gets speeds 5x greater then my iPhone4S. Unless something changes by Monday this iPhone4S is going back... and I can't beleive Apple can't make a freaking good 3G phone or even better yet a 4G phone... sheesh
I just wanted to mention that I am unsure why you all cannot use Siri? I am able to use her without a problem and I am not connected to WiFi (I actually have mine turned off because I have no need for it).
In regards to speed, it is not the fastest on the internet. I was expecting more with all the advertisements; however, its not HORRIBLE when I browse the web. I did expect faster speeds though.
PS: I just speed tested my phone and it is .14 download and .34 upload, so I assume mine are not great either - Not sure why though.
Take it from a long time Sprint Cusomer of 12 years.
This is what Sprint has been giving us for speeds the last year or so.
That's why they are upgrading to LTE over the next two years but it doesn't help 3G at all currently and with the load of iphone users coming to Sprint for unlimited data, I fear it is only going to get worse.
