    Youtube video is so pixelated over 3g. I thought 3g would have made it as good as over wifi.

    I believe YouTube has to make the fix, because as far as using it on the iPhone, it thinks you are on EDGE still.

    YouTube only re-encoded for MP4, not for multiple quality levels of MP4. So, you get the lowest common denominator.

    Yeah, I was expecting youtube videos to look better over 3g but the look just as bad as edge to me. They look much better over wifi.
