    I cannot ever seem to get a torrent downloading over 4G. Once I switch over to 3G, the torrent downloads very quickly so I know there is no problem with the torrent itself or the seeders.

    I'm in downtown LA where we don't officially have 4G but have had it running stable since the Evo's launch. Are others in other cities experiencing this as well?

    Not related to your post, but which program are you using to download torrents? Does it go to your SD card?

    Yes, they block the port that torrent programs use. Change it if you can.

    I am using aBTC and I just discovered that it is in fact the program's fault. If I restart the torrent completely it works over 4G which suggests to me that the program does not support pause/resume correctly. But to answer your question

    PRODIGAL27: Yes, aBTC does store to the SD card.

    Sorry for the false alarm everyone.

    Seriously, why do you need to torrent a file to your phone?

    To download movies or music when you would be away from a computer for an extended amount of time.

    Hah! Well, thank you Captain Obvious. ;-) Seriously, I get that part of it and the geek factor is totally cool to do that from your phone. And I'll say I'll want to try it at some point, too.

    But on the other hand, I'll just kick off something at home and it'll be done, faster, by the time I get home at night or whenever and I'll have had the chance to seed whatever it is as well before I kill it.

    Edit - and it's not bogging down my regular phone usage, either. :P

    Computers are power hungry. Plug in your phone, let it download the movie. Most likely the mobile version. But still.

    How exactly did you get it to work?

    I just downloaded the application, downloaded a torrent, but it either takes forever to go from 0% to 1% or its not connecting.
