welcome to the forum...


are you saying.. when you are on wifi.. best you can get is 2.89mb download? have you tested your wifi speed on any other devices (laptop) and what is the speeds there?

if you wifi is 10gb speeds.. and your evo is only doing 2.9mb... i say you need to get that sucker replaced!

well nothings worked and i cant get over .45 mbps D.L on 3g !

Wow then I must have some bad 3g speeds (it's actually plenty fast :) ) cuz I'm lucky if I get OVER O.5mbps but I'm glad it wasn't just Sprint's overall network being sucky, but just mine :p

Note: reason why I'm saying it's 'sucky' is because my friends lg ally on verizon gets around 0.8-1mbps

from the hardware this phone is packing it should atleast put out 1.2 to 1.7 mbps on 3g atleast
