    Question 8707v poor 3G Modem performance

    Advertisement



    Having got my 8707v functioning as a 3G modem when connected to my laptop, I now notice that the performance is very poor compared to my 3G data card.

    Within windows, the modem control panel shows me tha the 8707 max. modem rate is fixed at 115200 compared to 460800 for my 3G Card.

    I can't increase this - any higher, and believe this is probably the reason for the poor performance.

    Has anyone else noticed this and found a fix?

    BTW the tests were carried out at the same location and at the same time, so I would expect the same performance.

    Re: 8707v poor 3G Modem performance

    Remember, The Blackberry is not designed to be a modem card. And I don't know if, when using it to tether, the phone functions are turnned off. You can't expect a device performing a function that it was not optimized to accomplished to have the same performance as one that was designed to perform a single specific function in an optimal manner.

    Hope this helps

    Thanks for replying.

    I would disagree that a multi-function device should not perform as well as a dedicated one
    - Nokia 3G phones manage it well enough (being 3G modems and phones I mean)

    I had heard that the processor in 8707 is a step backwards. I noticed the diff between 8700 and 07 just using and browsing on the device - not tethered. I have now gone back to 8700 from 07 due to poor device performance. Bad design rim.. Makes 3g look bad!

    Cheers
