    I have the 750 from Cingular. If have a 3G sim card. I live just outside the 3G area( a few miles). I consistently get btn 80 - 150kbit/sec connection speed according to dslreports. I've done the proxy and Hsdpa hack. Shouldn't I be able to get at least 300kbit/sec even on the edge connection? I would love 800 but I can't even get past 150. Help!!

    If you live outside the 3G area that means you probably can't get 3G (UMTS) and you need UMTS to be able to get HSPDA. So no UMTS, no HSDPA. Just having GPRS (EDGE) access will not get you HSPDA. Sorry.

    If you are only getting a Edge connection in your area, don't expect to get anything more then what your getting. Until you get a "U" icon, you will then hit UMTS/or HSDPA speeds.

    UMTS typcially ranges in the 200-400 range. HSDPA is typically 600+. Of course this varies on location, etc.

    I'm confused. I have a U and sometimes a G. When I check my connectivity in says " cingular (GPRS, 3G) does the U mean I'm on edge? The fastest I have ever gotten is 335 kbits/sec but 9 times out of 10 it is btn 80 and 150.

    U means you are picking up 3G. It really comes down to your location. I have seen speeds all over the board.

    If you see a "G" you're on OLD GPRS, if you see an "E" you are on EDGE, if you see a "U", you are on UMTS or possibly HSDPA if you have installed the hack and are in an HSDPA area.
    GPRS is typically up to about 60 kbps.

    EDGE typically is no faster than 150 kbps.

    UMTS is usually no more than approx. 600 kbps.

    HSDPA can be up to greater than 1 mbps.

    No, on a Treo you get G for both GPRS and EDGE, there is no E. You get a U for either UMTS or HSDPA. The connection letter is the network type (G for GSM, U for UMTS) not for the data connection.

    Any ideas why with a U I'm getting such erratic speeds?

    Its all about your signal. You may be in an area where your tower is far or your signal is degraded. If you hit over 600kbps, then you are most likely on hsdpa and your hack is working fine. Go travel around and test it when you have all your bars. also look at cingular.com for the 3G coverage in your area.

    I normally se about 735 - 960kbps, sometimes as high as 1120kbps. NEVER below 300kbps so far.
