Try updating the PRL on the device. 


Ensure the device is inserted / connected to the computer.

Launch VZAccess Manager.

 From the Windows desktop navigate: Start > Programs (All Programs) > VZAccess Manager.

 From the Macintosh desktop navigate: Finder > Applications > VZAccess Manager.

From the Linux desktop navigate: Applications > Internet > VZAccess Manager.

From the VZAccess Manager top menu, navigate Options > Activation.

 For Macintosh: from the Menu Bar, navigate Options > Activation.


Try repositioning the device in a different location.

In the many bars are shown for EVDO?  If you do not have adequate EVDO signal, you will be connected at 1xRTT which is about like dial-up.  The recommendation in previous post may resolve this unless you are just too far from a 3g tower.
