Disabling Virgin/Sprint's Bandwith Throttling [TUT/TEST]
This Stops Sprint's and Maybe Virgin Mobile's Bandwidth Throttling issue when using Pandora/Skyfire/Skype/Last.FM/etc
Get your MSL#

I would copy down original #'s just in case you want to revert back for some reason!
I haven't tested it enough to know what Sprint is blocking/filtering/throttling and why. There are several potential reasons including:
- The proxy may be throttling bandwidth. Since 32k aac+ uses a very modest amount of bandwidth, you may be ducking under a threshold.
- The proxy may be doing site-based filtering. Perhaps the site you're connecting to isn't covered.
- The proxy may be doing content-based filtering. aac+ isn't as well supported as other streaming media. Perhaps it is being overlooked.
- The proxy may be overloaded with connections, and dropping higher bandwidth streams.

Now does it work for the Optimus V?
We have to, since we are using Android: Go into settings, and update the Proxy from there.
Does it work for you? It did for me, speedtest posts in a day or 2.

I got into the info screens via the long method at PPC Geeks on my V after the short method failed, but the MSL line is not listed/available via that method. On my V, at least.
I do find it interesting that one of the three ril lines listed, however, is:

I was browsing the files on the Optimus V through adb shell and I came across these strange hidden apps installed on the phone:
$ adb shell
# ls /system/app
So naturally I Googled it, specifically LgHiddenMenu.apk, and came across this tutorial to force roaming. Accessing the LgHiddenMenu gave me these really advanced configurations and testing for this phone. I think you guys might be able to access the proxy configuration through this. I haven't played around with it much yet.

Open Connectbot. In the small dropdown box on the bottom left that says SSH, click and choose local. Put Android or whatever in the nickname box and hit enter.
Click on Android.
It will show a long list.
The ril info didn't all come back together on my phone, it was scattered through the log info. A total of three ril lines were provided.
