Default How Do I make my 3G work??

I have read specs on the Huawei Ascend and they all say that the phone is 3G capable. If this is true how do I make it work? I am always on 1x.. I thought that the MODs would solve it but, It didn't. I am also on Cricket (if that's the problem).. Any help would be appreciated..

Thanks..
Eagle...

Did you get the Data plan for cricket? Not sure about Cricket plans, I am on Metro Ascend.

Cricket only has 1 plan for android phones. It's supposed to give you everything.. I do get everything. Unlimited calls, text, pic text, internet, mobile web. Everything... Just never see 3G always 1x and I can't find a setting in the phone to maybe turn it on or enable it..

Dial *228 to reset your signal.If that doesn't help,dial 611 & talk to a CRICKET REP & explain your situation to them.They actually helped me out when I was having signal issues.
If those two things do not help,you're probably in a fringe area that has a weak signal.Take a look @ the coverage map @ mycricket.com & see if you're bordering a coverage area.

One more thing,if you're using a task killer &/or a battery saving app,ditch them & watch your signal improve.


Edit:If you've used more than 1GB of 3G data during your current billing cycle,you're probably being throttled,meaning that your data speeds will be slower (1x) until your next billing cycle starts.

Even when I'm throttled, it still says 3g.
