    At four bars ... I am only getting 8-16kbit/sec. Live in the Menlo Park/Palo Alto Area of CA on Cingular....what are others in this specific area getting? I was up to 75-100k a few weeks back when the phone was new. Could it be the phone (everything else seems fine...outside the once a day soft reset)....some sort of data buffering issue, etc., etc.????? Coingular turning down the performance (why I am curious about what others in the area are getting). Thanks

    Have called Sprint about signal strength, they are looking into it. Works great in some places. Nextel seems to have the best overall signal strength.

    Function of the HTTP protocol. With the speed test you are opening one connection to the server and pumping down one file. With a normal website you are opening multiple connections to a web server to pull down multiple files. This adds considerable overhead depending on how many connections you can have open to the webserver over your connection methodology.

    Think of it as the speed test being calling one pizza shop to get your pizza and the normal website being many calls to different shops for the crust, each topping, etc.

    Exactly. Furthermore, I think the high latency on EDGE/GRPS networks (nearly 2 sec as reported here!) is primarily responsible for slow page loadings when multiple calls to the server are involved. Each call to the server incurs a long wait before the response is received.

    I use an unlocked Treo 650 with a t-moble card no problems. Why would you want a branded phone and all the marketing nonsense?
