what is the trick to get 3g? cause i try to launch pandora with full bars but no 3g and it says unable to load, then all of a sudden without me even moving 3g will eventually come on and then i can load said app.... my question is how do i enable 3g when i need it IE bout to go somewhere in the car and want to listen to pandora and i dont want to wait like 5 min for 3g to become available...
TLR my 3g is very iffy at best, always cutting in and out... what to do? i live in a full coverage area according to the site...

i do beleive that trick has worked, it is def has a much more constant 3g connection now, now the only problem is that i beleive the speed i am getting is pretty slow lol, could hardly buffer a 32k tunein radio station as i was riding my bike.... but thats fine as long as its "there" im much more happy lol...
side note: what do u think the effect on my battery life will be now lol

I tested on my phone and i cannot call out, receive calls and sms in evdo only mode.
Putting the phone back in CDMA auto PRL and i can call and even receive the missing sms sent to my phone during EVDO only mode.
From my understanding was CDMA is for voice and SMS, that is why you see 3G disappear when you make a call or SMS.(it goes to 1x Rtt)
While 3G (EVDO) is for Data and MMS.

User density and speed
I've been looking at number of users on MAC channel and download speed.
If number of user is around 20, my speeds are between 450-600kbps down.
If the number of users is 30-45,my speed drops to 160-260kbps.
if the number of users is over 45+, speed is under 80kbps down. even as low as 15kpbs or timeout.
Of-course less then 10-15 users, and i can get 1200kbps down, which is rarely now in my neighborhood.
The number of users has been increasing and not sure if the new Motorola Triumph will help .
