    As I was looking at the phone, I notice how fast it seemed. Most noticeably I saw what seemd to be much faster browser speeds. I checked and made sure the Curve was on EDGE and not Wifi and then cleared the caches. I loaded up a couple of web pages on the Curve to check it out. I then loaded the same pages on my Storm with Crackman's V7.1. It wasn't close. The Curve was more than a few seconds faster.

    Has the Storm browser always been an issue and slower? Am I seeing this because the Curve is made for ATT and I am hacking the Storm on to the ATT network? What do you guys think?

    Sometimes I question even having this phone since I cannot switch networks and it just does not do everything right all the time. I may go totally back to the Curve 8900 if I can find a deal right now. I am not going to sign a contract for one though with the GSM Storm 2 and Onyx on the horizon.
    I would have to say that crackman is onto something. It may have to do with the phone not being friendly with the network its not supposed to be on. I think the speeds would be hit and miss. But both phones on their own network, the storm would naturally be faster since the 8900 isnt even a 3g phone.

    I actually think thats a tmobile issue. Certain parts of the country they arent bad, but where Im at, they are completely horrible. Even people with tmobile issued phones gripe about the speed. No 3g coverage around Cleveland.

    I have both a Bold and Storm 9500 both unlocked and debranded and guess what, both are faster than the 8900, but between them, the Bold is faster than the storm.

    The other day I was testing my bro iphone on ATT vs my Bold, and it was let say the same speed.

    Maybe the debranding process has something to do there
    The Bold has a 624 mhz processor and the storm 528mhz, I would thing thats why the bold was faster?
