Hi guys, I have an HTC Touch that has an On Account sim in it. (its a red sim card) My company pays the bill so I have not used it for data, until today just to try out speed. I have my own Super Prepay sim ( its a yellow sim with 128k printed on it) I swapped over to do a check on my balance and do a speed test for the up coming $10 / 100 mb add on. I don't mind swapping cards back & forth to use data on my own card. The on account card seemed to load a lot faster than the Prepaid card. Does this seem right. If so why. I love the idea of $10 /100mb. Just wish there was a decent dual sim handset around.

Speed has 0 to do with the SIM

Or if prepay or on Account

Thanks for the reply John. Just as I thought. Can you offer any other explanation ?

Do the speedtest a few times it will average out the same on either SIM
