Thread: VERY SLOW Internet on 3G on SPRINT Iphone 4S

    Default VERY SLOW Internet on 3G on SPRINT Iphone 4S
    Hello All,

    This is my first time posting in this section since i am usually trying to unlock or jailbreak an older model phone for me to use on Tmobile.

    Last year i went ahead and switched to Sprint and got two new iPhone 4s for my wife and I. Ever since i got them the service for Internet has been horrible and the call dropping is right behind it.

    Ive tried complaining to Sprint but all they tell me to do is dial #something# and reset all my network settings but that doesnt help.

    I am curious to see if anyone else on Sprint has had this issue or am I really the only one.

    Also is there anything else that i can do to help my internet out. Ive been on Edge network with Tmobile before and at points they are the same speeds, thats how bad it get for me.

    Really? No i have not yet, I am on 6.1.

    This has been an issue for me from 5.x and so on. Now that you mention it I will do that even though i am really sceptical about it. If it will help I will try it.

    Anything in the jailbreak community that i can add to my phone?

    I'm not saying it will fix your issue but that's what they updated that firmware for. And what ya mean by jailbreak?

    Well I will be doing that tonight.

    I meant something in Cydia that can help out my situation. (i.e. tweak, app)

    Sprints 3G was always slow its the trade off for unlimited data. AT&T has the fastest 3G

    I thought Verizon was #1? Now i have to debate what company i will be going to next Verizon or ATT.

    I am definitely staying away from sprint though. i just hate it.

    I dont see how unlimited it really is when you cant surf the web on 3G speeds. (sorry just venting out the fustration!)

    verizon has the best overall service best quality in calling and decent surfing speed usually 1.5-3mb down. att fastest 3g it has 3-8mbs down and call quality is some what ok . People say there calls get dropped alot and the coverage is not as big as verizons so att is #2. while sprint just plain out sucks call quality sucks you get dropped every now and then. Coverage sucks sufing speeds are like 1mb down and that's being generous most of the time i hear people getting like .3-.5mb down

    Very good info mag12, i appreciate you posting this. Now I just have to wait for the 5s to come out which I know will probably not be much different from the 5.

    Decisions decisions.....

    I have the 4s and I'm regretting that I sold my EVO 4G. I've been with Sprint for a long time but ever since I got the 4s my service is HORRIBLE!!! My contract runs out in 6 months and I'm dropping sprint like a bad habit.

    At least thee I had lte or WiMAX not sure but it's faster than their 3g
