    Since there is now way to turn off 3g on the iphone 4s. I can compare it to

    safari is pretty fast and opens quickly, but on 3g (no on wi-fi) it does not even open, even with 5 full bars showing.

    I tried speed test and with wi-fi 27 ping with 3g again full bars it shows 20% in the ping status and does not even give me a ping number.....its like taking forever.

    Not to mention that siri does not work...
    I am worried if there is something wrong my phone...or this is something others are facing.

    Sounds like your phone has a problem. Did you reset network connections and settings

    I was gonna ask who your carrier was. I have been surprisingly impressed with my 3G speeds on AT&T. A lot of the time web pages load at a pace I usually only get with wi-fi and sometimes faster.

    Either the phone, or more likely, your network. I had a situation about two years ago with my 3Gs where the cell in our area had horrendous data speeds, and at one point, completely lost data connection (even though it was showing full connectivity), for 4 days. AT&T eventually tracked down the problem, and once fixed, it's now the fastest spot in the city for me. :)

    Call AT&T and mention it to them. Have you tried it in different locations?

    ok did network reset and turnder off wi-fi and now ping is 198ms dl - 0.49mbps upload 0.02 mbps with 3 bars 3g.

    3G data works great for me. Except while trying to use 3g data while on a call. Data is extremely slow while on a call. Anyone else?

    I was having the same issue the other day. Reset network settings made a minor difference, still only about 800Kbps down. Then I walked three feet over to the next office and got 3.4Mbps average, then walked to a window and got 4.8Mbps average.

    Are you sure it's not your location?

    I would first reset the network settings of the device by going to Settings, General, Reset, Reset Network Settings.

    HSPA+ or nothing. Gotta live in an area that AT&T deems important too.

    (halfway kidding)
