    Just got this phone. I love it but it's a huge shame and disappointment that Sprints 3G speeds are so terrible...I average 50kbps down, no more than 500kbps down EVER. I'm probably returning it on Monday, as this didn't help and I'm not sure what else to do...

    I just tried to do this and I get "Modem error Modem exception occurs" and my only option is "YES" and it takes me back to the View/Edit screen. What have I done wrong?
    Anybody have an answer for this? I searched and didn't see one and I'm having the exact same problem.

    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
    This worked for me...I'm in Irvine, Ca.

    Data speeds are roughly the same but more consistent.

    I tried this on my phone and I could barely download an app. When I returned the settings back to the original way I was able to resume downloading...

    it is not an icon. you type it in the keypad of the phone app.

    Thanks for bumping this. I performed this mod on my pre-TEP S2, but I forgot about it on my replacement. My 3G speeds at work are slower (240 down to 90) but the latency plummeted from 520ms to 90ms. So it's at least usable for lower bandwidth stuff.

    Thank you for this thread. Normally I just stay connected to WiFi when I can to save battery and have better speeds, but while on campus and going through buildings I lose it from time to time.

    That being said, my speeds at work didn't alter too much. I usually range from 2-4 bars while at work and somewhere around 41kb/s down and 70kb/s up. Not solid speeds at all. Made the switch and seem to have better higher download speeds but slower upload and lower latency.

    Upgrading to Jellybean seems to prevent that app from getting the MSL. Best bet is to call Sprint and tell them that none of your friends receive your picture mails.

    I used an app called "Get My MSL" in the play store a minute ago and it worked fine. I'm rooted on JB

    Type "su" (no quotes),
    hit enter (should see # instead of $ at this point),
    then type "getprop ril.MSL" (again no quotes).

    Get Alogcat from the play store and install it, then go to phone screen after installing and enter data mode (##3282#) then hit edit and enter anything into the MSL field, then quickly switch to the Alogcat app and pause it, filter the log for "MSL" (no quotes) and in the log each wrong attempt at the MSL will be logged with the correct MSL shown in the parenthesis.
