Has anyone else noticed a significant drop in wifi speed while on a call? I get an average of 13-15Mbps while off the phone, but this drops to about 3Mbps when on a call.

I've tested it several times and my WiFi speeds don't decrease when I'm on a phone call.

I know. I want you to pay attention to me when we're talking, so I'm throttling your WiFi. ;)

Seriously, though, test it on someone else's phone on your network and see if it happens to them as well. If so, maybe it's your network or router. If not, maybe it's a problem with your phone.

Just tested mine and no difference in speed either.
Test it on a different network. If it's just your phone, you might have a power problem to the communications card.

I just tested mine, same. Your very lucky. I get 1.56Mbps while not on a call. So 13-15 is very good!

Mac, you're supposed to test Wifi speeds while on a call. if your wifi is slower than a regular AT&T data connection... That's really bad.

The bottom is on a call, the middle isn't on a call and the top is on 3G

Nope! Lol, I'm using our router. My neighbors router can't reach down here. I only use it when I'm down there playing with them, which hasn't been much at all this summer

That's the worst 3G download rate I've ever seen.

Note to self: Do not move to Illinois.

NEVER move here. It's a very crappy state. And the sad part is, I live only 6 miles from a tower by road, so I imagine 2 miles straight. Imagine EDGE....
