    After the update, are any of your guys experiencing slower web browsing (a la dslreports/mspeed)? I used to get 90-140kbps and now I'm hovering around 28-70kbps. Any ideas?

    I just did the update too and noticed it's very slow also...

    Is there a way to tell if you are actually using the EDGE connection?

    I have an unlocked, unbranded Treo 650 with Cingular service.
    My phone info is as such:

    Firmware: 1.31
    Software: Treo650-1.13-ROW

    Can I use the Cingular update, or should I wait for Palm to provide an unlocked 650 update?

    Pretty sure I figured it out... It's only Mail that is slow... I use Snapper and the latest version was loaded when I did my update....

    I have my mail set to go DIRECTLY to my card.... This is a new option in Snapper.. It takes longer to write to the card therefore making it look like the mail is recieving slower...

    I did a DSL Resports test and I get over 100kb/sec.

    I did the update and my unlocked unbranded loaded with just the cingular radio firmware sped up quite a bit....

    but today seems the internet has a whole has been slower...

    but sticking to my belief that the update increased the timings for edge and made it much faster....
    on tmobile before i got 80-maybe 100...
    i have been pushing 120-140 since the update easily unless rush hour times when the network gets loaded up....

    how can I tell If I am getting Edge speeds?

    Run the 200k test on http://www.dslreports.com/mspeed...if you get 70k or higher, you've got EDGE.
    V > Vx > m505 > m515 > T/T > T3 > TC > 650 > 680

    so you have a unlocked unbranded treo, and applied the 1.17 firmware update?
  12. #12  
    Yes i did, the update dramatically improved my d/l speeds...
    I just did the firmware though not the software...

    I have Cingular 51/1.17 on Cingular service and just got 139 K/s on the 200 test. Perhaps your Edge service got disconnected somehow.

    How did you extract just the frimware. I'd like to get that and the bluetooth refinement for my unbranded 650. My wife has a Cingular 650 and it makes the Motorola H850 connect much better.
