    I found a special bug in my iPhone. I would like to know if your iPhone behave the same.

    If I'm establishing a data connection in a 3G area I'm getting good speed values of around 1500 kbps, if then I'm browsing the web in a 2G area with GPRS and then move back again to a 3G area from there I will connect at a maximum speed of 200 kbps, until I restart the iPhone or turn off/on the Airplane Mode or 3G switch.

    I found another iPhone owner that has the same problem as me so I suspect that the problem is more pervasive, although little known.

    To test yourself these are the steps:

    connect to the internet (email or web) in a GPRS only area
    move to a 3G area
    connect to the internet via 3G and test your speed with (for example)

    ....and post here your findings!

    It seems that the problem affects also EDGE networks in addition to GPRS networks.

    So, please test it also if you have a 3G -> EDGE -> 3G scenario.
    And post here also if you successfully passed the test. Thank you
