    So that there is no misunderstanding, when you say that "everything" is fast except app download, are you saying that Web surfing, downloading files such as .pdf, music downloads, etcetera are all very speedy via Wi-Fi? If so, are the apps that are downloading slowly in conjunction with setting up your iPhone 5 from a previous backup from a previous i-device?

    Since you can't exchange it for at least a month (I'm assuming there's no Apple Store nearby), I would connect it to your computer and reset it as new again via iTunes.

    Google's DNS uses both of those.

    You can also use the OpenDNS at 208.67.220.200 or 208.67.222.222.

    I thought google stopped using 4.4.4.4 and made 8.8.4.4 I knew about opendns

    Ping 4.4.4.4 times out
