    You have to use a Root Explorer. Default File managers won't work.

    Wow, you definitely might be on to something. The thing is, if you delete it, it will come back upon reboot.

    I doubt anyone will be able to decipher them, but I'm not worried about it. Like I said, personally, I'm 100% okay with the throttling anyway.

    These files were found about a year ago in the early days of ROM development. If I remember right there was a thread about it on AndroidCentral by either mmarzz or mmark1111. Maybe Leslieann remembers this, it was around the time she was developing Aphrodite. I'll try to find the thread and provide a link.

    If that's true, why is it that they came back after yesterday?

    Who says they ever left? Maybe nobody noticed it / forgot about it.

    It could be that they generate themselves after first reboot or something and you just always missed them because you flash so often... I'm assuming that you don't check to see if they are there everyday.

    They were there a long time ago. Mmarz was talking about a a way to make a script to delete them on every reboot if throttling ever became an issue. Out of curiosity someone should do a speed test with them, then delete them and do another speed test

    Here the thread I was talking about. If you look halfway down the second page, you will see that those files were also on the very first 2.2.1 stock rom. I remember restoring my stock backup to check it and found it on my phone also.

    I think a lot of tin foil hats need to be passed around. Just like when it showed up originally.

    It would be stupid for VM to throttle people using a script on the phone. Its like most things that reset when your phone reboots. Or you flash a new rom.

    The throttling is done at the Vm datacenter your data usage is tracked just like texting and minutes. Via software on THEIR end. You will not be able to bypass it or fake them out. You should consider that the people in charge of this stuff is people that work for Sprint. Not the outsourced customer support center.
