TMobile results from San Francisco.

Mostly HSPA+ connectivity in the bay area. Download/Upload speeds range anywhere from 3Mbps/1Mbps up to 9Mbps/3Mbps depending on local network saturation.

Here's my two cents. Nexus on T-Mobile VS iPhone4 on ATT.

T-Mobile has always been faster, I got 24Mbps once with the SII. I still have a feeling ATT 3G have better building penetration, but not by much.

Coming from virgin mobile I would be more than happy with the 3g speeds

Thanks for sharing guys but we're comparing speed test to MVNO of these two which is Straight Talk. People have reported getting faster speeds with regular AT&T vs AT&T Straight Talk.

Didn't know there were so many people here on straight talk too. All the talk on the hofo forums has me paranoid about data usage but it seems like no one here has problems..

Yea its all good so far on StraightTalkAtt for me. I'll see where I am at in a couple months, but no problems yet. I have left proxy field blank, use wifi where I can, and keep an eye on data. I would just watch out streaming music/video and downloading roms. That will eat data fast. I really don't use much data at all because there is wifi everywhere I go and I don't stream or download large files anymore because I am done with rooting atm after 2 years and have about 15 albums stored locally. I imagine I could use a lot more data though as the people here on xda are.

Here's an update. End of billing period, just over 6.5GB with no throttle or service shut off. I just renewed without any problems. Internet still fast and flawless. Straight Talk is a keeper for me now.

Is there a definitive answer as to how Google Voice behaves with the various StraightTalk options? Here's my understanding:

1) With T-Mobile, Google Voice works fine as long as people dial your Gvoice number instead of your T-Mo ST number. However, if they dial your T-Mo ST number, they do NOT get redirected to your Gvoice, so you either miss the message or have to dial in to T-Mo VM to get the message.

Is that accurate?

If it is accurate, is there any way to force calls made to your T-Mo number go to Gvoice vmail instead of T-Mo vmail? Does the method posted by adellefrank in this thread work?: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1639804

2) With AT&T, Google Voice works exactly the same as it does with any post-paid AT&T plan. Voice mail forwarding/redirecting to Gvoice number works as normal.

Is that accurate?

Thanks.

Just got st att today. Proxy blank and all that jazz. This has been pretty consistent. I have the 30 dollar TMobile plan still active on my n1 and the data is so much faster in it. Only problem with TMobile is it sucks everyone in doors around here... Is this common with other straight talk to get this slow at times? Well it get better after a few hours? Days?

That's it right there. Also don't forget to clear the proxy field when using AT&T. Gotta say I loving Straight Talk right now here in Atlanta.
