Data problems, related to jailbreak?

    I"m having a bit of data speed issues recently with my jailbroken iPhone 4.

    I live in Chicago and have great AT&T service everywhere I go (home, walk to work, in the office). I'm on wifi at home and at the office, so the only time I really use my 3G data is when I'm outside of those 2 locations.

    Since I jailbroke my phone a few weeks ago, I've had very poor/slow data speeds. I have full bars showing, but data download speeds around .06-.5 Mbps.

    A quick turn on/turn off of airplane mode seems to fix the issue, and I resume getting my normal 1.5-3.5 Mbps speeds in Chicago.

    I notice the issue happens when I leave a wifi zone and then move into 3G usage, ie walking to work or taking the dog for a walk. I'll get almost no data download at all until I turn off/on Airplane mode.

    Does anyone know what might be causing this? Is it a jailbreak issue? I've been jailbroken before on other iPhones and other iOS versions, but have never had this issue.

    Just for reference, I'm on iPhone 4 iOS 5.0 with untethered jailbreak, with the following packages:
    Browser Changer
    Five Icon Dock

    Anyone know what I should do? I already tried to reset network settings, and that didn't seem to work.

    Thank you for your help!

    I'd like to know where you got the untethered iOS 5 jailbreak.

    Regardless, most of those apps look like they wouldn't affect network speeds. The first one I'd delete as a test would be Sirious. IDK what StayOpened does.

    I used RedSn0w to jailbreak. It's not untethered.

    I doubt the data speed issues are related to Sirious. I was having this issue before I installed it.

    have you tried resetting network settings? also did you do a clean install before jail breaking or did you just do the jailbreak on top of whatever you had in that device? i would first do the network setting reset and if that does not solve the issues then do a clean install and do the jailbreak again and set up the iPhone as a new device. do not restore any setting when syncing with iTunes. see if that helps.
