Should there be any difference between the speed of the browser/tethering on WinMo vs Myn's Donut? I feel like it's slower, but maybe it's just me... It's really aggravating...

I agree with CP0020.
Opera Mobile is very fast.

Yea, I'm mainly talking about downloads from the App Store and tethering... Just doesn't seem to be as fast as it used to be... I'll know more later today when I'm in my normal tethering spot (I never tether from home).

None of my tower type settings should have changed correct? I did do a *228 after I installed Android, maybe that f'd it up...

I just tried a download in my regular tether spot...

175 Kilobytes/s for 22 megs (Android SDK). That's not bad, 1400 kilobits/s or 1.36 megabits/s. I'm not sure what max EVDO Rev A speed is on Verizon... That's what coverage WinMo shows where I'm at...
