    Yup, the link is only for Sprint users.

    onekoolfella; are you on sprint or verizon? So you used the 68.28.121.76 New York, NY Area 3, 68.28.121.77 New York, NY Area 3 as primary and secondary? These didn't work for me on verizon . I live south of Buffalo.

    For the most part I'm sure this is common knowledge, but everyone needs to use caution while interpreting their speed tests. There are many variables affecting speed that have nothing to do with the tweaks that are being applied. For example, I just used the 1MB file on MobileSpeedtest.com to do 10 tests in a row. I didn't change a single thing on my phone between tests. All of them were done within a five minute window with the phone sitting stationary on my desk and showing a full signal. Here are my results: 696, 1276, 1468, 1146, 1674, 1504, 1500, 1194, 973, 1223. As you can see, there is a 240% difference between the best and worst speed. My numbers have an average of 1265, but a standard deviation of almost 300. That means There is a pretty big range of 'normal' speeds which would make it hard to tell whether any increase is from a tweak or just random variation.

    Three major variables there. Location of test server, network routing to the test server, which varies every time, and server congestion at the time you connect. Using my home connection, where I can trace where I'm going at any given time, if I connect to a server in the midwest going through the US alone, I get relatively stable speeds, but as soon as it flips on me leaving my home coverage, and routes me through Toronto, my speeds drop like a rock.

    Don't forget latency. Hardcore MMO players obsess about ping time for a reason. One test might have you at a low average latency overall, but hit a server with a 1200ms ping, watch your speeds plummet.

    Ok so it's for sprint only. Can i still perform seciton 2 even if i can't change my home agent. Or is there a site list verizon locations for home agent change?

    Cinnabarcorp,

    Thanks for your instructions.

    I changed only the buffer size from 7 to 20 and here are my results:

    mobilespeedtest.com:
    before the change: 308kbps
    after the change: 611 kbps

    A simple "wget -O /dev/null http...." of a random 3632k file took
    ~53 seconds before the change and
    ~40 seconds after.

    Doesn't work with Pre
    It doesn't read the phone

    Haha, okay think of the MSL number an unlock code. No by just having the MSL number you cannot clone a phone. You have to overwrite the ESN numbers to match, and it is very illegal to do. Also both phones cannot be used at the same time if you do clone them.

    Thanks for the reply. I definitely will not read about ESN #'s.

    To those that have changed their slot index from 2 to 7.... have you notice any voice mail messages where you never recieved a call? If so do you have your voice mail setup to go their after 3 rings, 6, or 8 rings?

    This gave me a big increase in speed, also my laptop runs a bit smoother when tethered as well.

    I have my voicemail turned off anyways.
    So I figured it wouldn't matter.

    Is there a home agent code in hawaii?
    OP link to the site only has CA as the neartest. Is that what I input?
  18. #138  
    Question. Would the Buffer and Slot Index mod affect users that set their connection to EVDO ONLY in the ##EVDO# menu?
  19. #139  
    WOOOOOOOOW!!!!!
    I got a significant increase.

    using mobilespeedtest.com
    with the 1MB test I got:

    before update:
    806kbps

    after update:
    1606kbps
    my fone was at the top of it all!

    thanks to the OP for this thread.
    really appreciate your help
