    Thanks.

    I had EDGE then signed up for the data plan and EDGE changed to edge and now I see 'Data Conn...' on the screen. Not as fast as I had thought.

    801.11mbps? Completely impossible. I think you mean 802.11, which is the actual IEEE clasification to Wi-Fi, which still isnt actually correct. This is because 802.11b and 802.11g, and now 802.11n(?) are subsets of the IEEE 802.11. 802.11 has nothing to do with the speed of the connection.

    Now, if you meant 11mbps, that's correct for 802.11b type wi-fi.

    Hope this helps!

    My connection speed is always 921.6 Kbps. I'm on TMO.

    It shows:
    speed - 921.6 Kbps
    sent - 295,254 bytes
    received - 1,456,997 bytes
