I have a 9300 and not have this problem.. A friend of mine does well and he hates me for it. On mp 3's I get 160-180kbs almost anywhere in RSA where there is 3G reception. Avg on a 30mb avi file is 120 odd. Dl in like 10min.. I even one got a 240kbs round 3 in the morning. Fastest episode of supernatural of 60mb I've ever dl'd.. For reasons that they might stop it I won't say which carrier I'm using but I still use OS 5.03 if that might have any effect.I think the carriers in RSA is so overloaded with data traffic that the system can't support it fully yet so they "throttle" most of the users so the network can cope. I remember when BB just started to get big I got myself one somme a 8520 and transfer speeds on bbm was amazingly fast, for a while.. Vodacom* So as I said, it has to be all about the data traffic
