Ok so I did this and it helped streaming a little bit.

Then I tried something else that doubled my internet speed it may not work on non sense Roms, but you can try it.
Open your dial pad, type in *#*#4636#*#*
Edit:tap on phone information,
then go towards the bottom of the page. Tap on "set preferred network type" then select CDMA/EvDo/GSM/WCDMA/LTE auto, then your 3g should turn off then back on. Next go towards the very bottom of the screen and there is a button that says toggle dns I believe. (Sorry, I'm on my phone so I can't check) hit that so it says 0.0.0.0 allowed. Then all you have to do is tap your home key and it'll save by itself. I have noticed that this won't stay there if you restart your phone, but once you get used to it it's pretty quick to set. I don't reboot every five minutes so it doesn't bother me. It's a small price to pay for fast internet!. My internet speed used to be about 200-300 download, now I see up to 2200Kb download.
IF THIS HELPS YOU OUT PLEASE HIT THE THANKS BUTTON!! THANKS! :D

Have you tried making call, receiving calls, send text or mms? I believe there was a thread like this when the Evo 1st came out but it turned out that the trick killed some things that made a phone a phone.

It kills some if you pick the wrong one. ;) figured that out right away. Pick specifically the one I listed and you should be fine. I've been running like this for about 2-3 weeks. By the way I'm on ota, dev unlocked, rooted, on viper Rom, and awesome sauce kernel.

Sorry, to answer your question...I do send and receive text and picture mail, send and receive calls (regular number and Google voice number). Now I just have really fast internet. ;)

Like I posted in the other thread.....



One test is not definitive.


Do 3-4 with it off, 3-4 with it on, and a couple with it off

Results page from speedtest will report multiple scores.

This is in response to Rxprt. I have. Every day all day, truthfully, it's fast until I reboot my phone then gets slow again. then I change the setting and it doubles as soon as 3g connects.

That sounds like that menu that you go to to mess up your phone from roaming on the 850 band.

It's all a myth to me. If I can get 2500 on a rural tower but go to another and get poor speeds then nothing I do to my phone is going to change that except for roaming of course or maybe toggling in hopes to get on another carrier if the tower has more than one active and it's the air interface congested not the backhaul.

Though changing this could in theory improve speeds in specific scenarios, its unlikely (and proven when I did a similar test on androidforums.com) that the masses will gain little if anything from these changes.

What we have confirmed is that if you are experiencing slow speeds, the cdma only setting can drastically improve them. The LTE cdma evdo setting is trying to (in some areas) connect to the enhanced cdma technology that is not yet available in most areas, thus the phone ends up on evdo or 1x speeds.

Problem is, the average user has no way of accessing the tower information to even know what areas are complete, in progress, or not effected. Thus results will vary for literally everyone.

And as mentioned, some changes there will result in loss of voice, data, text and or mms

Okay, sorry didn't reply for little bit I had to power wash the parking. :-\ Anyways, the first four were done after the MOD and the bottom four were done before the mod (holding down the power button for 10 seconds and letting the phone restart at factory settings). It definitely works for me, but like it was posted earlier it may not work for everybody.

Just download "Network" app from the play store and much easier to enter those settings.

    Actually it usual better to connect to eHRPD... Leave it on Lte and let it eat. It doesn't use more battery since the same radio is always scanning around anyways.

    Sent from my C64 w/Epyx FastLoad cartridge

    Ehrpd upgrades are not running yet in most of the US though

    Oddly enough my best speeds tonight at home are are when toggle is set to not allowed and network is set to evdo....eventually the speeds went back to garbage tho (within 30 mins)

    Cont....

    So speeds were still horrible so o toggled back to not allowed, then changed to CDMA only through the settings menu and rebooted, network shows to be connected to CDMA (auto prl) and speeds are phenomenally bettter.
