    Comparing the results of my Verizonized Treo 650 with a Cingular 650 owned by someone in my office, my experience (pre 1.08 update) was that the Cingular (GSM) unit was faster than the Verizon (CDMA) unit, but the latency was slightly higher for the Cingular unit. I think that it is unlikely that you would see any considerable difference between the two in real world usage.

    I need to compare again now that I have updated my unit to 1.08.

    Thanks for your reply Steve, I suspected as much. I am more confortable with Sprint's data pricing though I'd love to have GSM for the flexibility.

    my best on 600k is 157...thats 20k a second not too shabby and thats using blazer, xiino is much faster for rendering pages (and yes it makes a difference even on mspeed).

    GSM 650 (on Cingular network, Menlo Park, CA).

    When I first received (2/12/05) I was receiving 75k-100k. Now I am luck if I get 20k (usually 15k). Everything else seems to be working okay (except the every ~24hr soft reset). Is it the Cingular network or could there be a problem with/on the phone??? I am mystified. Suggestions, please

    Sprint PCS - Bay Area, California - 4 bars signal (signal doesn't appear to affect data speed)

    600K: 37.53sec - 134 kbit/sec

    Sprint uses a proxy server for Http traffic which is very slow (it is hardcoded in the phone). In my test I specify a proxy server in blazer (Options-> Preferences-> Advanced-> Set Proxy) which bypasses Sprints. I only get 106 to 116kb with sprints proxy server. With an alternative proxy I get close to 140kbit depending on how busy the proxy server is. Measuring the data speeds using blazer is not a valid test because there's no way to bypass using a proxy server. It's obvious that the data speeds on sprint can exceed 128kbit because I am able to stream 128kbit shoutcast streams in pocket tunes (provided its a good station with no data pauses).

    hey wait there is something else we are forgetting to mention...which browser are you using!

    Blazer 4.0 here

    albeit it says up in the first post to use blazer (as an exmaple) you should still state which browser you are using
