General Too slow for YouTube?

view story

http://androidforums.com – So I have the Razr (MAXX isn't available in Germany yet :() When I tried to watch videos on YouTube (through the app or the normal site) it will buffer for several minutes then I get to watch about 3 seconds of video then right back to several minutes of buffering. This even happens on a 20 second video! Also battery life is laughable even when I don't use my phone all day. It looks like T-mobile here will not let me exchange my phone to try something else...am I stuck with a super slow battery devouring beast? (General)
