    I don't know about no data, I have the circle when I don't have edge, just GPRS. With the circle I usually get about 35kbps download

    what carrier do you use? Whats your location ?

    ( if you don't
    mind
    me asking)

    Don't feel bad, I'm on GPRS 99% of the time where I live. Even with AT&T the bestvyoull get is edge here.

    It is GPRS. Slower than EDGE believe it or not. Some areas of the city do not have EDGE in place or you are just in an outskirt area.

    I wouldn't go that far....

    My average speed on GPRS is about 35k, back in the dial up days that was considered a pretty impressive speed, your just spoiled now

    Is it kbits or KBytes/second? There's a huge difference. 35 kBytes/second is about what you would get on edge...speedtests tend to confuse people by displaying kbits/second. in your case, the conversion would yield about 4Kb/s, which is dead slow.
