Flashed to latest firmware

Couldn’t get the auto OTA to work so decided to update the firmware directly. The slow hotel wifi will slow down the app reinstallation. Oh well.

Fast T-Mobile connection

Very happy to see the 3G connection working at good speeds.

    Just discovered your blog, and I really like it! Keep up the great work. I see you recently switched to T-Mobile. Have you noticed your connection switching among 2.5/3/3.5 speeds? Do you know of a way to instruct the N900 to only lock on to a specific speed regardless of signal strength? Thanks! Looking forward to more posts.

    It seems everyone in America with a N900 has good speeds on T-Mobile except for me. 😥 You have more than 10 times the speed as me.

    I also have terrible signal strength (often no signal at all, especially if I’m in a building or the phone is in my pocket), and like Terry it’s usually switching between 2G and 3G modes constantly. If I use the 2G/3G/Dual mode switcher applet to force 3G-only, then it just loses signal more often (since there’s no 2G fallback).
