    Right now I have the unlocked 650 with tmo sim (t-zones) and a cingular 650 with EDGE (media works)sim. I get between 70-110kbps using the 200k test on www.dslreports.com/mspeed on both devices.

    Why is this

    So you are saying tmobile is using EDGE speeds? I am in San Fran getting 70-110 or so on tmobile unlocked 650.

    T-Mobile uses Cingular towers in CA which already have EDGE (lucky dogs). I'm in OR and its definitely not EDGE here.

    Getting 96-121kbits/sec outside San Diego w/ T-mo. I clear the cache everytime I load the test.

    Just in case I could connect to Cingular for EDGE, I tried to manually connect to the Cingular network (they show up in my network list). It would not allow me to connect. Still, I'm OKay for now w/ 38kbit/sec......as long as T-Mo gives me EDGE sometime this year.

    hmmm, gotten around 80ish to 120ish, bay area, cupertino specifically and this is with a 1 bar signal, seems that this t650 rf is much better than the t600 and SE700i that i've been using!

    Thanks sooooooooo.... much for reporting your speeds here in the Bay Area. I am in the Eastbay between Oakland and Hercules most of the time.

    This post just might have answered an important question for me.

    38kbps here in NYC!

    I have an ATT data plan and use a Sony Edge PC Card GC82. I'm consistently getting 150kbit/sec.

    Then I run the same test on my Cingular 650 from the same location and get no better than 70kbit/sec.

    Someone explain to me why this is?

    wait wait wait... so if I'm reading this straight... t-mobile sim + unlocked GSM treo 650 + live in california = edge speeds?
  17. #17  
    man.. t-zones is like $10 too.. plus their plans are better..
  18. #18  
    according to their tests, yes. at first i really didn't think that t-mobile would be able to utilize the data end of the cing/at&t network. i stand corrected. forgive me, for i merely envy thee

    HAHA, I LOVE THIS! since t-mobile is buying cingular's towers, that means that I won't ever have EDGE downtime.
