i think you have to go to setting then go to wireless and deactivate the 2g option then it will give you 3g or H symbol which is 3G speed :d

All
Manual of Galaxy 551 specifies

"When you subscribe to a cellular service, you will receive
a Subscriber Identity Module (SIM) card, with subscription
details, such as your personal identification number (PIN)
and optional services. To use UMTS or HSDPA services,
you can purchase a Universal Subscriber Identity Module
(USIM) card"

Any further info on this?

All
Finally got the settings for enabling 3G on Galaxy 551
Refer to cheat codes on Galaxy Essentials - Android Wiki

Code *#*#2263#*#* - Set GSM/UMTS band
This Allows us to set UMTS band. Select WCDMA All & 3G is enabled on phone.

Happy 3G Surfing

Smile Give them some time to make it work

Hi - I have all the three providers simcard for 3G idea/vodafone and tatadocomo in pune..

I have found idea/tatadocomo are able to work on 3G

Vodafone sim not registering on the 3G network neither any
of my friends could who owns them,,,,I have spent lot of
time working with vodafone and not much could happen
probably best thing is too wait once the provider gives it we take it
