    I recently bought a T650 off of ebay and activated it with my Sprint provider. Now i have a question, when any of you Sprint T650 users try to surf the web is it REALLY slow, i mean like 2-3 minutes to fully load a page. I bought the T650 in hope that the web would be pretty damn quick like when one of my friends with a sidekick 2 showed me his web surfing and it was damn fast. He was surfing and connection on links with in seconds of fully loading websites. Is there something wrong with my phone? or is Sprint web service on the T650 just really slow? Any advise or recommendations i would be thankful for.

    It can be really slow at times for full web pages. I don't think there is anything out of the ordinary going on with your phone. Sorry.

    I would like to know the answers to those questions too. I'm with Sprint and the internet is completely slow. I had a Sidekick and the browsing on there was much faster. Shame Shame.

    I had called Sprint one time and the lady I spoke to said to me that she didn't know why the browser was so slow.

    once you go to a website the cookies are saved.. which means all the pictures of the site gets saved on your treo, once it's saved it should load quicker. are you going to the same websites over and over again? or completely new ones?

    First of all there are so many things wrong with the Sidekick comparison, it's hard where to begin!

    The Sidekick does not have a full fledged broser fyi. All Sidkicks access the web via Tmobile proxy servers FYI that actually "squeeze" and compress web pages so that they can be viewed on the device. Tmo also limits what sites can be accessed via its proxy and etc. Thus it is not a fair comparison.

    Blazer on the 650 actually accesses and renders paged directly w/o a proxy. However you can add a proxy if you like to improve the speed. There are tons of free proxies you can find on the net like the following:

    http://tools.rosinstrument.com/proxy/
    http://www.proxy4free.com/page1.html

    Also, you can access very large pages using an excellent free proxy called skweezer that I recommend:

    http://www.skweezer.net/

    This site automatically squeezes large sites for you so your Treo can load them faster.

    In addtion, it is important to note that on mobile devices like the Treo and other pda's, the resolution of the screen limits what you can view!! Thus, it's advisable to view "mobile-optimized" pages whenever you can which are more efficient. Checkout Pdaportal as a starting point to find these sites:

    http://pdaportal.com/

    Also here is a nice thread listing various mobile sites:

    http://discussion.treocentral.com/sh...ighlight=mobil


    Also, there are other alternatives to blazer which are slightly speedier like Xiino, Webpro etc that can do a better job of rendering pages. Do a search.

    Finally, realize that this is a phone with only 1xrtt speeds!!! This is not UMTS/1xEvDo/wifi speeds here! The Treo is limited by the speed of Sprint's network or whatever network you use. Until true 3G Treos appear, there won't be comproble performance....

    How in the world do I set up a proxy? I enter the proxy information and the weboages won't load. I get an error message.

    Run a bandwidth test at dslreports.com/mspeed. If you are consistently in the 50-60 kbps range or below than there is a problem. Tier 2 tech support should be able to tweak your settings to speed things up. Sometimes a move or being constantly out of your home service area for an extended period can cause problems.

    I have noticed that the 650 gets completely dusted by the ppc660x when surfing, however the 650 should be pretty snappy with most sites. Mine is.

    Sprint does use an instream transparent SQUID proxy server, as FYI
