    Well prior to today It would get about double the speed in the same areas as it's getting today. I'm afraid that I rolled over the phone and/or hit it with my elbow hard enough to damage the antenna inside. If I return it I wouldn't want a refund I'd just want a new replacement nexus s 4g.

    I tried this and nothing worked. I have smoked around it and had it in semi humid areas. Every single place I've been the last two days has gotten half the speed on both 3g and 4g radio. Also all day Saturday and Sunday I 4g wired tethered all day and the phone got to 42 Celsius for a while. Could that have done anything? Also I updated the prl and profile and factory resetted the phone and nothing! What should I do?
