    anyone know of a download/upload speed test that the pearl can handle? just out of curiosity, as the only ones i have seen are using Java(which wont display properly in the browser) or flash.

    Steed, try http://pcpitstop.com/internet/BankwidthResults.asp. Just enter that address from your BB Browser. Seems to work pretty well.

    =\ pcpitstop's images were never loaded, and it also relies on redirecting the pages, and verizon's decided my speed was 11,111kbps which is insane. Guess there isn't an easy way to find it out.

    Tether it as a modem and then do a speed test. Speed results should be similar.

    Tethered to my laptop I get 120Kbps. Incedentally, this is also the speed of the connection when it says connected to blackberry modem... Anyone know if you can increase the speed?

    The problem i have read is that since you are using the "COM4" or "COM5" when using it as a "Standard Modem Dialer" it is limited to the speed that connection or protocol can handle.

    Apparently you are supposed ot be able to get better speeds when using Bluetooth to tether the BB to the pc, however this is definately not easy and some programs allow for it.

    Run the Verizon 1/2 meg file test above and see if that number drops greatly. The best I have ever received was barely equal to a 56k modem.

    The larger the test file the more reliable the results.
