    my apologies i was venting first!!

    can i tell from my antenna display if its gonna connect?

    how to stop pages loading instantly ?

    there seem to be a severe lag on the web side, not seen in the palm side,or phone side.. im a noob to these type of devices . My previous experice has taught me that if i get used to screen changes at a certain speed and then i go to a slower machine its frustrating.
    If thats the case here then ill just have to remind myself before atempting web apps to cool my jets.

    or is there a setting i have missed to speed the web side?

    thx for responding

    Web browsing on the I300 is pretty slow on most sites even with full signal strength. The maximum speed is 14.4kbps, which is 1/4 to 1/3 the speed of a 56k modem connection.

    You could also very well have full signal strength, but the tower you're connecting to might be full and not allowing any new incoming connections.

    yeah, you can have only one bar on the signal meter and still get a good connection.. those displays are not really reliable in terms of letting you know whats really going on inside...

    im just patient. XIINO is a good browser.. you should try it out...
