    Is anyone else noticing that Verizon iPhone 5 on the 3G network is taking some time to respond...for instance when clicking on websites it doesn't go right away...apps arent loading completely in a reasonable amount of time...or even with Siri...she is taking a long time to respond. We have two iPhone 5's in the house both using 3G to save data...and noticing that it seems server is acting abnormally slow!

    Verizon 3G is slow. If you're going to subject yourself to that instead of their LTE just to save data, then I recommend you look into switching carriers or increasing your data plan allowance.

    Also I am not really saying that I am getting slow 3G speeds...considering of course it would be slower than LTE...what I am saying is that it seems like it is taking a longer/abnormal amount of time to connect to servers! My 3G speeds are...https://twitter.com/byzetta/status/367676999113773057

    It sounds like there might be something else in play. On it's own, Verizon's 3G (EVDO), while definitely slower than LTE, and perhaps slightly slower than let's say AT&T's/T-Mobile's 3G, it's still decently fast to load web sites and use apps and all that.
