    Hi guys, just to know about data speed of various iPhone..
    since I have an idea to buy a best one...
    please share your iPhone's data speed here and which iPhone do you have right now ?

    Thanks in advance

    Understand that data speed depends on a number of variables ranging from your phone itself to your specific location at the time of testing and several others...so just because one person gets a certain speed, doesn't mean you'll get that same speed (or be limited to that same speed).

    In my specific case, right now...sitting in a parking lot in my cruiser with 3 bars of service, i'm looking at the following speeds on the 3G network (approx. 30 miles outside of Atlanta to the north):

    Download: 1.92Mbps

    Upload: .44Mbps

    Are you in a speed trap waiting to pull over an unlucky soul? Hahahahaha.

    Data performance is always YMMV. I can run a test and get 2.00 down then I can rescan again in the exact same spot immediately and get .84 down. YMMV.

    Yep, i can get 4mb down in one spot. Travel a block and get 1.8. Upload speed seems more consistent around 1mb.

    I wish, might be interesting...i'm actually waiting to become part of a mobile escort for the governor of South Carolina and some high profile rabbi...and im hungry as hell, lol.

    Thank god for tethering.

    BTW...haven't moved...

    DL = 2.1Mbps

    UL = .52Mbps

    I have to agree! I fluctuate between 1.1mb to 4mb at times! It depends on a lot of variables. I just know that it should be over 1mb more times than not.

    Right now everyone has an AT&T iPhone (or some GSM network) and on AT&T the 3G, 3GS, and 4 should all get the same speeds. Those speeds are highly variable though depending on many factors. In other countries though with HSPA 7.2 you can get faster speeds with the 4 (I forget about the 3GS since I never had one).

    Just did a test at my desk where the signal is fairly weak, 3 bars right now but can go lower.

    DL = 1200kbps
    UL = 400kbps

    At my house I normally get around 3200/800 with full signal.

    iphone 4 has HSUPA which means faster uploading.

    Here's a link for more info. iPhone 4 upgrades to HSDPA and HSUPA can double 3G bandwidth speeds | ZDNet This pretty much equals my experience. I'm in same location as the writer.

    Here, north of Los Angeles about 30 - 40 miles I see speeds around 1.5Mb down & 1Mb up. Right now at the office with 3 bars, I'm getting 1.05Mb up AND down. Consistent I guess.

    Do you guys use an app to check the speed??? I am new to the iPhone world and came over to the "dark side" from the BlackBerry world as they put it. Is there somewhere to check it on the phone. BTW I love my iPhone4 and will never go back. Thanks

    Where I live/work (about 10 miles NE of Boston) I average:

    iPhone 3Gs 1.5 Mbps up and 300 Kbps down
    iPhone 4 2.5 Mbps up and 800 Kbps

    Nothing scientific just my own observation. Obviously YMMV
