    I never see the 3G symbol, only the HSPA symbol, even in areas where i should be on 3G (mates phones are on 3G, mine still has HSPA)

    Even if i go into settings>wireless & networks>mobile networks>networks mode and manually set it to wcdma only (which i believe is 3G) the phone still only connects and shows the H symbol.... Any ideas? or am i doing/missing something silly?

    HSDPA being better than standard 3G has already been explained by everyone here, but just as a note; HSDPA is part of HSPA (HSDPA + HSUPA) which is an extension of WCDMA.
