I have had the Arrive for about a month and I have to say the 3g is horrible everywhere in Houston. I have had Android phones and some of the kernal's allow you to change radios. Is there anything like that for Windows Phone, maybe the newer radio will allow better 3g signal. It is so bad most of apps will give connection errors, foursquare, soundhound, groupon, and facebook most of the time. I am just curious if anyone has any suggestions.

I know how you feel. But sadly 3G is terrible for all 3G phones atm in houston. Hopefully with the launch of sprints new vision & LTE, we should see better 3G speeds, this summer. Hopefully~

I hear ya! Metro Detroit is terrible! I used to go about 3x as fast, years ago running win mo 5, on edge, on a tmobile wizard. I guess thats before everyone discovered a smartphone.
