Windows A few days I switched back to Windows Phone 7.5 as my main smartphone operating system. Why? Well, because I can. I like to change things up every now and then, and blessed as I am with an iPhone 3GS (currently pulling duty at my best friend as her portable gaming device), Galaxy SII with CM9, and an HTC HD7, I have the luxury of doing so. Now that I'm back in the neat, tidy, and straight-lined arms of Windows Phone 7 - three long-standing issues really break the illusion, which all come from one source: the networking stack.

"The second issue is also quite annoying. I'm not sure if this is an issue with the applications, or with the networking stack itself, but pulling data from the web is often painfully slow, and often will just fail entirely - no matter the wifi network or 3G connection. "

It's a fairly common problem. Some have fixed it with system restores, but that's not an option for me.

The issue occurs when you have cellular and wifi data enabled at the same time. Even if you have great cellular connection. Thus, if you're using wifi, disable cellular data. For now at least. It also gives a great boost in battry life and the phone runs cooler in my case. By a lot.

This may be the reason wifi is so slow for you. It isn't for me, though. Up in a few seconds.
