Ok, so i tried this hack for the motorola photon 4g

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1466245

and it really freaking worked! Sprint has been so so terrible in our area for about a year now, and many complaints have done nothing. I used the hero, evo, evo 3d, evo again, now photon. the internet has always sucked. even with the evo 4G hack that somebody posted. so i did this process and my internet is crazy fast now! no need to look for wifi to upload or download a pic (or just internet in general).

ok so i followed the advice that i posted as a link, and the only problem was that there wasn't the line of code there that i was supposed to edit. so, i just simply added it in the "persist" section and BOOM!! internet was on fire!! these were my results:

Before...

614 175

218 243
203 323
282 134
228 168
486 487
77 128

which was typical "top end" speeds i would get if i was lucky during the daytime.

After reboot...(you have to wait about 4 or 5 minutes for the settings to completely settle, i had 8 speed tests that were very similar to the above, then i saw this and shat myself)

I think this is the same as what the motomizer app does, along with most unlocked roms already have these values. Nice find though for those that don't/didn't know

Update,

About two week after doing this, the mod was removed,
along with my custom boot screen.
I updated my PRL and Profile, but that's it.
Who Knows??

I had problems the next day with it reverting to some other setting, so I deleted the build.prop.bak then re-edited the original and speeds came back. does anybody if this gonna keep happening? if so, how to keep it from doing that? also, any other 3g hacks are welcomed!

3g speed hack
OK, so I had fast internet at first then it seemed to go back to very slow speeds, so I played around and set the number to 100 and then I went from about 100kb download to a 2500kb download. so far no problems! I'll report back if there are any issues.

first I set it at 100, and I am now currently as of this moment experimenting with new numbers.I have put in "10-1000000" without the quotes of course. this is also very fast. just so you know, what ever I do it seems like I am maybe getting throttled. I'll get super fast speeds for about 5 minutes, and then my speeds drops. I'm continually experimenting to see what I can get for optimal speed. I have tried boolean expressions, also the "10 - 100" expressions. some of them have given me awesome internet speed. but it always seems to drop off, so I don't know if there is a setting in the phone that somehow reverts back to the old setting. whatever happens I'm going to still try different combinations to figure out a setting that will stick. I will post back if I find something that really kicks ass!
