very slow wifi!! Please help
I just unlocked my iPhone yesterday (In St. Maarten, using a Chippie SIM card).
The unlock went very smoothly and now the phone seems to be working perfectly, except the WiFi is VERY slow! I have tried this on multiple networks in many places and it is consistently far slower than my computer hooked up to the same network. I have heard that EDGE is slow (which I'm obviously not using), but I thought wifi would be at least close to wifi speeds on a laptop. Is this normal or do you have any idea what I could do to fix it?
Please help! Thanks.
First, my WiFi is "slow" too. But i've managed it to make it a little bit faster. You have to disable (yea i know stupid but real...) WPA or WEP encryption. This encryption is the most "slowmaker" of the iPhone. Just try to enable MAC Address restrictions to your WiFi AccessPoint and let only specified MAC's connect. This can be spoofed but its a little bit more secure then just nothing.
The WiFi is again much slower then some notebooks or other devices. But it seems like the iPhone doesn't have fast WiFi in current firmware builds. Maybe in future updates this is fixed.

Most of the networks I've tried it on have been unsecured. I used one last night that was secured with WEP and if anything, it was faster. That is not the problem though. I just can't imagine it's supposed to be this slow. Could the unlock or activation have affected it? I used independence to activate.
