    First off, I like the new iPhone 3G, I really do. Aside from the battery, the design is much better and the GPS is nice to have. However, my phone is having horrible speed issues with 3G, Wifi (802.11g linksys connected to 6mbps Comcast Cable Internet), and EDGE. reports the following speeds for this phone. My location services are off, and I am getting 3 bars of 3G at home, and 5 bars of EDGE/GSM.

    3G: 0.18mbps (181kbps) (233kbps second time)
    Wifi: 0.3mbps (304kbps) (231kbps second time)
    EDGE: 0.25 mbps (245kbps) (211kbps second time)

    Is this normal? Granted, 3G is only at 2-3 bars at my house, but should the speed decrease that dramatically. Again, my GPS was turned off because I read it interfered with the 3G radio.

    That doesn't seem right.

    Try a different mobile speed test. There is no way EDGE should be that high and WiFi be that low.

    Does 3G seem fast when using it, compared to EDGE on different websites?
