today i tested the speed of my iphone 3g. Before the upgrade 2.1 my phone was very slow at my house it would always switch to edge right when i walked inside, ever since 2.1 i have experienced full bars of 3G reception in the same spot of my room as it would switch to edge. But i personally think after these test that the bars are there to make people feel good about there reception. Because i always have full bars everywhere now. Is that not strange?! The first test is the Download Speed: took 17 seconds to download 512 kb The Second test is the Upload Speed: took 138 seconds to upload 512 kb Who else is having this same slow download/upload experience?
