    ATT so slow?

    Advertisement



    When I'm sending pics I took w/ my bb curve via email, it takes 4 minutes to send a 375KB file. That's 1.5KB/sec, isn't Cingular EDGE supposed to be faster than dial-up?? Or is it because I'm getting the whole KB vs kb conversion thing mixed up? =(

    That's why I'm stickin with T-Mobile.. I'm sorry to say that I'm returning my curve after one day with cingular. Their service is just really bad in my area. I really want to keep the curve ... oh well I will just wait for T-Mobile's 83xx

    Flash, depending on where you live, you can request a tower to be put in nearby. Just call 1-800-331-0500 and ask about it!
    Cingular is now the new at&t

    i don't mean my emails are slow coming in, i get regular emails on the spot. Same with sending emails without attachments, they come and go really well. It's just when i attach a photo that's not even that big at 375KB it takes 4 minutes to send. I see the icon showing that the file/email is uploading, and it takes forever.

    I've sent a photo via email it took maybe a minute. But it did seem to take a while. It just may be the upload speed. Not sure yet.

    On Edge that would be about right for upload speeds, if you are in an enhanced edge area you might get it uploaded in about 1:35 or so, in an unenhanced EDGE area it should be between 2:30 and 4 minutes.

    Also -- you don't always get the max available speed. Like many other things there are varaibles that can affect your throughput.

    It seems like those who load the O2 OS are working fine.
