    I did the update last night and now my 4G is worse. I was (using speed test) getting ~3.8 down, ~1.6 up before the update. Now I'm getting ~2.4 down, ~0.4 up.

    Mine is better but honestly it was never even close to being consistent to begin with.

    Sorry but I'm seeing the opposite, just ran a speedtest and go 5.48 down and 1.27 with only one bar on the 4g meter. These are definately better than what I used to get.

    Wait -- how has everyone gotten this update already??? I still haven't had NADA pushed out to me. Ridiculous.

    I got the alert yesterday. They said it can take up to 3 weeks.

    I installed the update manually on Monday. It was really bad at first. My 3g and 4g speeds were just awful. I couldn't hold a signal in places I could before.

    I called sprint to inform them on Thursday and they didn't say they did anything but my service is really good today. Its better than ever now. I am guessing they reset my radio or profile or something.

    If I was you I would wait for it to come to you, not manually install.

    Makes absolutely no difference whatsoever.

    My signal is stable now. So far I am pleased with the update. I will do more checking tomorrow when I'm out and about.

    My 3G now gets into the 900 range and my 4G hit 9734. Both are hugely improved. Used Speed Test app in Arlington, Virginia connected to the DC server.

    My 3G has more bars but the 4G is not better and even slightly worse.

    I am located in Hawaii on Oahu and my 4G speed according to "Speedtest" app more than doubled, and that was while located in an office building, the 3G speed is not as noticeable but slightly better. I know from experience that obtaining signal is the most important factor when it comes to battery usage and I have seen improvement in this regard.
