So, let’s see on how you can further increase the Internet data speed by up to 0.2-0.6mbps which is quite a lot. If you are used to the NAM programming for your CDMA phone then probably you will understand on how it works.

    Is there an option if you have a Evo flashed to boost network as well? plus sprint and boost share the same network so would this work on the flashed device? If so does that mean that you will be on rev A 3g ?

      First download MLS reader from App store, its free! Once you retrieve the MLS code,(yours is unique to your phone) enter it after hitting ##MLS CODE# and it will bring you into phone settings!
