This is the speedtest screen capture I did on my brand new iPhone 4S. As you can see, I got .016Mbps down and 0.05Mbps up. For those of you want to say maybe the network is just slow in my area. I did the same test with Samsung Epic Touch with 4G turned off at the same spot. It's 3 times faster. Is sprint crippling iPhone data rate, or there is something wrong with iPhone CDMA radio itself.

Agree this is pathetic! And it's clearly the entire network not just by area. Maybe I can cancel my contract for free because they aren't providing what they said they will ;)
Back to AT&T I guess! Sucks I switched over just for the 4s
I am posting two sceenshots or Samsung Epic Touch on both Sprint's 3G and 4G network. Notice the 3G speed on Samsung is a lot faster than on iPhone. That is one reason i am posting why is the speed so slow on iPhone but not on the other phone on the same network. I am sitting at the same spot with two phones. Perhaps somebody from Sprint can answer this question?
