    Just followed your very detailed instructions from the very first post, WHAT a difference, went from 500 download speed to 2100 !!! I thought the browser was fast before, now it's amazing.

    Thanks for the help

    I live in a pretty bad 3g area but THANK YOU so very much for this!! I went from .25 to a full 1.0 in the speed test app and makes a world of difference for web browsing. I'm pretty ecstatic Thanks again!

    I tried this on my Evo 4G and connectbot tells me "permission denied"...

    Stock Evo, not sure what the problem is.

    Know what's sad.....in reality and compared to all other carriers, those speeds are pitiful.

    Did this on my Photon and it does work, the biggest improvment is that music apps stream with less buffer. My speeds are up to aroung 1200k down and 650k up, but that is early AM. As soon as the network gets stressed they are way down to around 200k down and 200k up. I am in Raleigh NC and have 4g also and did the db tweak, that seems to help pull a signal better also.

    Sprints network is just over burdened, been with them more than 10 years and has gotten worse over the years.

    I agree. I have been noticing a huge slowdown for a while. I drive into Birmingham, AL each day. In the mornings (5am) the speeds are decent, but in the afternoon they are absolutely terrible. Further out of the city the speeds pick back up again. It's frustrating. I would swap to Verizon, but my 4 lines on a Sprint employee referral rate are too cheap to give up at the moment.

    FWIW, the speeds were just as bad with my EVO too.

    I had mixed results today. Speeds in BHM this afternoon were just as horrible, but everywhere else they have at least doubled or tripled. No impact on battery that I can see.

    I tried the changes and as others have said it actually brought my speeds down. Also, it was killing my battery. A problem I wasn't having before on my 4g touch. Anyone notice that? It cut my battery life almost in half.

    I had to use the samsung keyboard for it to show on mine. When I used A.I. type it wouldn't show up.
    Everything worked great for me and my 3g speeds have at least doubled.

    That's because it's supposed to be getprop ril.MSL give that a try. I was having the same problem. I don't know if it changed with the el29 update as I could have sworn the mil.MSL worked for me in the past as well. But changing the mil to ril worked for me this morning.

    Idk if this has already been stated, cuz I don't want to read through all 14 pages, but renaming the values to 0 didn't work for me (was only getting 50kbps d/l), however, clearing all the values and leaving them blank pushed it up to ~250kbps which is good for my area lol

    I tried it out in North Phoenix and it didn't seem to work. I will run more tests and see if I can't figure this out. The default settings weren't very good, but when i changed everything it seemed to half the speed.

    My 3G speed has never been great, 2-300 kbps down. Last few days it's gone to hell, usually sub-50 kbps. I was hoping this would help but it didn't, must be a network issue.

    I tried it, posted one 4g 12k kbps result.

    Best 3g was 800kbps

    Tried clearing all values, and I hit 1000 + 1200 kbps on 3g

    Unfortunately didn't work for me. I had to go back to default. With the changes I was looking at less than 50k

    As I stated it works for 3G but it will NOT work with regular network reception. 2-3 bars is the average that you will get with this phone. And its having a major drain on the battery as well
    Real talk. This don't work... Tried it step by step... Face it people sprint sucks. *walks back up to McDonalds to use wifi and 4G**

    Btw im using Galaxy S II w/ Sprint.

    Im going to try this tomorrow before I take this phone back. I love the phone and features but my old *** 1st gen Droid incredible from Verizon was running circles around this sprint phone. Im hoping to fix this non existent 3g with the sprint galaxy s2 so I can keep the phone or its back to Verizon we go.go.
