so Ive been using edge and have been finding that i generally get a poor connection/speed. Ive found that i average only about 80-90kbps, while i see many of you other users are getting around 160-200kbps. I live in manhattan if that matters at all.

Any suggestions?

I think NY is historically a terrible spot for GSM due to reflections and absorption. The only way around it is more towers or more power.

well--i generally have 4 or 5 bars (or whatever the top 2 are) service wise. Even when I go to Jersey (which is extremely often) I don't get much better than 100 kbps.

hopefully when I go back to school in Virginia i'll get better service EDGE service. the phone service is fine though!
