    Evidently I had a rom that was not from the team (amazing3gtrf). I flashed arc 1.3, deleted my file in the throttle folder, set it to read only, tried changing values in my netpolicy.xml, nothing improved my data speed. I get up this morning, full bars at 1x and a few min later, 3g pops up and hangs around for an hour. Now it's back to normal (1x 2-3 bars), but something changed.

    the bars your getting is just service from the tower no 3g...............if you want to check 3g turn off wifi and you will have it running on 3g ...you should then just see 3g no wifi at all...........if your running it with wifi and you lose it 3g will show up then go away again when wifi is running..........................and changing the values in any thing is not a good idea unless you know what you are doing.............

    My wifi stays off. I'm out past the paved roads & dont have broadband. Agreed that my signal fluctuations are from the tower, I am struggling to understand why.

    2-3 bars at 1x 90% of the time. Occasional 3g and full bars for up to an hour. That's quite the sloppy signal.

    As near as I can tell, my apn does not include a st Proxy. It does show T-Mobile with a vznreseller mms. That's with arc 1.3. Thoughts?

    St customer service is clown shoes. After explaining this for 45min to a "senior tech" and Ota programming, deleting cashes, cookies, blah blah blah, I finally asked if 17kbs upload was representative of a service I pay market price for. She hung up. On my honor, the tech hung up.
    I love the phone and all I can do with it (all praise to a51, you truly rock), but I need better data speeds. Anything left to try?

    The apps are junk, I can cycle airplane mode without needing a script. I've made 2 yagi/cantenna but unless I hold the wire to the phone it's almost negligible. There's a new tower going up a mile or so down from me, here's hoping service improves.
    BTW, where's the St Proxy on the apn? And would changing it to the one found elsewhere (att/muvo, something like that) help at all, it's supposed to be the "official" apn?

    I'm still convinced something I did yesterday improved my signal. I've never gotten3g that long before . and I spent most of the day trying different things.
    Off topic, is there a patch for the system update notification that pops up every day?
