I seriously doubt that speed came from any GSM phone. Including GSM-A. Not to be a Debbie Downer or anything, but I have only seen numbers like that a few times in my life under very weird circumstances that come from a cellular device except for at CES 2010 in Las Vegas where they had the WiMax demos in full effect, even then there were maybe 6 users, and they were all cell phones. So its still deceiving either way. I'll tell ya how to prove it though. Record the phone screen with a digi cam and post the video of the phone running the process. Haha. Reguardless, this has been a very interesting thread. I have a Nokia E71-2 jailbroken + unlocked and have had it for about 2 years, I average around 2-3mbit/sec down and 1.5mbit/sec up. I'll post screens after I finish downloading itunes
I also know that post is super annoying with the colors, bold, and underlines. I just cant help myself. Way too ADD to be allowed in a forum.

Can you share the device name, location and the service plan with all of us?
Well he just proved to me that thats from VZW LTE, not Straight Talk.
Has anyone used a Samsung Skyrocket or HTC Vivid on Straight Talk to see if LTE works for our SIM cards? I don't see why it wouldn't, though.
Hello goldsworthy, I'd like to know the info you had also just mentioned.. care to pm?

I believe the APN "phone" has to be provisioned on your account. - so kinda of what you were guessing.There’s one last tangential question about HSPA+ on the 4S, specifically on AT&T. I’ve left this to the end since it doesn’t impact non-US 4S users, but the last question is whether the 4S is actually on HSPA+. For a while, I was concerned that AT&T would continue using the wap.cingular APN on the 4S which seems shaped to around 7.2 Mbps HSDPA. I’m glad to report that AT&T hasn’t continued using wap.cingular on its 4S data plans, instead using “phone” which is a newer APN that allows for HSPA+ (above 7.2 Mbps) rates. You can check this yourself under PDP Context Info on the 4S in field test.
I am using an unlocked Tmobile Samsung Vibrant (Galaxy S) w/ ST sim. From the phone itself the speedtest app only shows 2-3mbps.
But using Barnacle wifi tethering my laptop gets 5 mbps when I do a speedtest! I'm extremely happy with that speed, considering my old VM Intercept was much slower, and even my current DSL (I use a neighbor's actually, but still) is only 2mbps at the most. I'm very impressed!
