    Do you think the speed of the 680 is fast enough, or is the UTMS going to be a deal breaker?

    Not really. I did change the DNS settings of the 680 and browsing is much faster, but even without doing that things were a lot better than the 650. If it is that you need UMTS, be prepared for carrying an extra battery as every UMTS device has short battery life when you get online quite often.

    What did you do specifically with the DNS settings? Do you know what your spedds were before and after? I am getting speeeds of 180 - 200 kbit/sec now, but would always love to see faster (more power!!!). Is this something I should consider doing?

    Changing DNS servers isnt nothing new, but they seem to aid in transfer very good on Treos. Perhaps, cellular servers purposely restrict their internet speeds.

    THANKS SO MUCH!!! The speed on my 650 was sooo slow. It was better on my 680. With these changes, it is SOOO much faster. Thanks so much for the great tip. My biggest complaint with my 650 was the internet speed. It was excrutiating. Life is so much better now.

    you know something, I have been surfing from my review 680 for the past two hrs on a combination of RSS, mobile, and non-mobile sites. And with the exception of screen size for few of the pages, surfing has really been much better on the 680 than my 650. The enhancements made to Blazer might be the same ones in effect for 700p users, just without the uber-speed.
