Sounds like a DNS issue since you can get to some sites but they are slow.

Try this.

Ping some websites from your computer:

yahoo.com
Apple.com
google.com

and write down the IP address' the ping results give you. Open up safari
on your iPhone and enter the IP address and see if the site loads at full speed. If this works you have a DNS issue.

If this is the case post back and I will walk you through some solutions.

Do this from a computer on the same network your iPhone is connecting to.

In windows Start | Run | type cmd and hit enter
when the black command window opens type ipconfig /all

Make not of the numbers for 'dns servers'

Now go to you iPhone
Settings | Wifi | click the blue arrow on your connection and scroll down to dns. You should see these same two numbers. If not enter them manual.

Then surf a little and see if that fixed the problem.
