    Is it possible to chose which cell tower I want to connect to? I have Sprint and where I live I'm in between 2 or 3 towers, and unfortunately the closer one where I get 5 bars is terrible slow, 800+ms ping with data speeds usually below 100kbps, while the other tower I get 3 or 4 bars but it's WAY faster, like 70-100ms ping and data speeds that have gone passed 2 Mbps.. my phone obviously prefers to connect to the slower tower as it has a better signal, I obviously don't care about that if the data is soo slow. So yeah, is there anyway? I am jailbroken obviously.

    That stuff is all handled by the baseband processor. No way to change it at all.

    That's the thing though, one tower IS fast, the other is ridiculously slow. I just happen to have really bad luck to live closer to the slow one than the fast one.. sucks to suck . :(

    Wow , That must suck . I remember when I had Sprint and I called them and they told me I had a tower which had great signal and I was getting about 0.10 MBPS or something among those lines.
