    ...HIGHLY compressed 3G network. I was trying to watch a YouTube vid earlier after moving out of a wifi zone and the quality was appalling and seemed like it was more suited for EDGE streaming not 1+mb/s 3G

    I've been told this is purposeful compression on O2's part to avoid potential strain on their network and was wondering if there are any workarounds like an APN setting or something. As it stands if feels like I'm still using an iPhone 2G rather than a 3G/HSDPA enabled phone

    Use this:

    SNIP -> Search google for O2 APN bypass

    :)

    thanks this seems to have helped. Hopefully O2 don't block it....maybe you should remove the details from your post :p
