    Talking How to increase 3G speeds

    Okay, I just found something that will make your 3G speeds around 3x faster than it was before!

    1. Open dialer

    2. Type in '##DATA#

    3. Press 'Edit'

    4.Type in MSL code (Either get it from Sprint, or get connectbot off the market and type in: getprop ril.MSL)

    5. Press 'Data Profile'

    6. Uncheck 'Rev. Tunneling'

    There seems to be a problem where it will say error 75 and won't allow you to get 3G if you toggle off wifi with that setting disabled. So far the only way to fix this is to go back and reenable Rev. Tunneling and maybe toggle airplane mode if the problem persists.

    Is it possible to have a Toggle Widget for this? Im sure it requires root access, but is it possible to create one?

    Anyone confirm that this increases 3g speeds?

    I tried this and I got

    before: 0.58Mbps download / 0.41Mbps upload

    after: 0.81Mbps download / 0.28 Mbps upload

    and yes I am also getting error 75 which then disables my 3G

    Yeah, I think it might just be best to leave the Rev. Tunneling on but it could be good for those who don't use wifi all that often
    @Lancelot: Did you disable wifi afterwards when you had rev. tunneling off?

    Idk, I've noticed problems with it being turned off but what I'm really curious about is if this will work flawlessly when the next GB leak or official ROM will come out

    Oh I dug around a little more, and I found something called DDTM under the 'EVDO' section. I turned it on and it seems like it has a subtle effect on speed increase and I toggled this one with wifi repeatedly and hasn't given me any errors yet. Idk you can try it and see if it increases your speeds.

    EDIT: I didn't want to go technical and go into the other things; they looked too confusing haha

    No, you have to go into the dialer to do this. It's quite cumbersome but I can't do anything like that for I am not an app developer or ROM chef

    DDTM is Data Direct To Mail, sends any incoming to voicemail during a data session. Any speed increase you are seeing is purely placebo.

    Yes, it does, but be aware that when you toggle from wifi on and off, it will make your data connection go blank but not your voice connection.
