I have a Samsung Galaxy S II which is running ICS 4.0.3 for a few months now (it was running on 2.3.4 before). I work in Albany which happens to have excellent EDGE and HSDPA coverage in my office. I mean, when I am in the office, I get excellent coverage with both EDGE and HSDPA.
For months, while I'm in the office, when I have mobile data connection on, it would stay on the HSDPA network as long as it has signal (which is basiclly always the case). However, since about two weeks ago, it prefers EDGE instead of HSDPA, even I have full / 5-bar coverage with HSDPA. It is painful because it takes forever to load news, web pages etc.
I could work around it by switching my phone to use WCDMA mode only, but it is painful because I need to keep reminding myself to turn it back to AUTO mode when I finish work (because at home, I have good EDGE coverage, not HSDPA).
Can someone tell me what is wrong? Is this a problem with 2degrees?
