How do I check if I am in a 3G coverage area?
When you are in a 3G coverage area, your phone will show 3, 3G/H or HSPA beside the network status bar.
When a customer enters from a 3G area to a non-3G area, will the switchover be automatic from 3G to 2G or vice versa?
In the network settings of your phone you can set your phone to automatically switch to 3G where available and vice versa. Please set your network setting to a dual network mode such as "WCDMA and GSM" mode. To remain only in 2G mode, please select "GSM mode" only.
