I have been seeing all too many folks complaining about their 3G speeds droping horribly! Some seem to think it is the new PRI 1.77, others the new radio 2.15.00.09.01, and some say the newer NV 1.7, and even others say all THREE new updates are causing the 3G speeds to drop. Any thoughts? Should I try back dating to the older radio, or PRI, or NV, or what?

Also, and it makes sense, some have mentioned that due to the poor 3G signal, the phone is in constant "cell tower search" mode, and that could be causing the battery drain issues.

You thoughts?

PS: If I have to backdate, can someone make a PC36IMG.ZIP file for me (or the rest of us) with the files we need? Reason being, I have constantly had problems when trying to install the Wimax, Radio, PRI, and NV updates manually in recovery mode (using both RA 1.8 or latest Clockwork, both error out, just in different ways). The phone seems to install the files, but when it reboots, it goes back to the recovery screen, and depending on which recovery I use, shows something different, but most likely the same problem. For instance, in RA, it is stuck at FORMATTING CACHE.... and with Clockwork, it will say something like BUILD NOT SET. But when I use the PC36IMG.ZIP file, it will install just fine. TIA!!!!

My 4G speeds increased with the new updates. I didnt test my 3G speeds prior, but I dont feel a difference.

That was over 36 hours ago and my phone finally ran the battery dead over lunch. All running with the stock kernel. This was done with light to moderate use using 3G and Wifi -- some youtube videos, gmail syncing, gtalk running, browsing xda, gps turned on, etc. No 4G in my area to see how much more battery life that would use.

That's interesting. I may try that tonight. How long was it lasting prior to you doing this?



And for others asking...

This is not a question of poor battery life. This is more the fact that many are noticing a significant difference in battery life with this kernal and 3.2.

This was my first go using Fresh....When I first flashed this rom, I only got about 10 hours of battery life. Prior to this I was using Ava's Froyo V6 and getting anywhere from 12-20 hours use with the stock kernel. Like others have already said, using Wifi dramatically increases battery life.

Wasn't as active on my phone today and it did sit overnight. Spent about an hour on the phone and light-med text messaging thoughout the day. I normally get around 21 hours.

Usually it is verizon towers when I call it says that you for calling verizon we are sorry we cannot authenticate your phone please call verizon customer service. If I try to call again several times it will actually xfer me over to an operator for verizon and ask me if I'm placing an international call. So I can not roam onany network because my phone can not be authenticated has anybody had this issue. Thank you please any help or adivse I would greatly apperciate thank you

so I just make them give me a credit!

Anyone ever get the tasks widget to work on this ROM? Grabbed it from 3.1 and tried pushing it, but was unsuccessful.

My phone has been on 12 hours 40 min, wifi on the ENTIRE time, sending emails, making calls, sending texts, browsing web...and still at 51% battery left. This is night and day difference from the rom I was running prior (Vaelpak).

Wish it had some aosp programs like email, dialer/contacts, clock, and sms...but I can live without those.
