    How I Fixed the 3G Issue on My Nexus One
    Such a simple fix. I will try it out and let everyone know how it works for me. I had been using the *#*#3646#*#* hack to force my phone into 3G only mode, which works great, but this simple fix may be safer.

    Mine still falls to E sometimes, after this procedure. With the *#*#4636#*#* trick, the phone will stay on 3G here. I dont have much faith that this idea is doing anything the phone does not already do automatically....

    I haven't really had an issue yet...usually at 2-3 bars and only once switched to edge. I tryed this anyway for fun and immediately went to 4 bars (I think this is a first since I've had the N1)! I need to go back to the area where I switched to edge to see if there's any difference...

    Great info; thanks for sharing with us!

    Question: are y'all finding it more likely to have edge/3g if wifi is off? I'm wondering if my having wifi on all of the time is somehow affecting my other signals.

    And I just turned off wifi to see what would happen, and I went *immediately* from no data to Edge (which is what it should be).

    for those of you using the speedtest app. make sure you change the server to one that is closest to you... for some reason mine said the closest server to me was in wichita kansas yet im in charlotte north carolina. when i did that i got an increase in speeds.

    It really depends on who your carier is. 3.5G is supposed to have the max potential of 14mbs if i remembered correctly.

    However, that's not really a reference point.

    If you're concerned with the speed of your provider, go look up some consumer reports / reviews.

    Some of them have dones speed tests at different spots to give you an idea on how your provider is treating you (or cheating you).
