    Ive just purchased the Galaxy and concerned that i am connecting to internet when wifi turned off. When the 3G sign disappears from my phone I get a 'H' sign, what does this stand for?

    Also when the 3G is flashing red and green arrows does this mean you are connected to internet. i.e. when using an application? On some applications it doesn't flash but on others it does even games! I don't want to get charged for palying games!

    Thanks for your help!:rolleyes:

    H= HSDPA 3.5G (basically faster than 3G)

    When your wifi is off, the HSDPA/3G/EDGE/GSM is still active and if you see the 2 arrows it means you are transfering/receiving data.

    I only use wifi, and sometimes mobile datatraffic, but when i do, i use an app call "APNdroid"
    Its basicly a widget that disables on/off your mobile data connections, so that you are sure that you dont use any datatraffic.

    If you are paranoid like me, and want to keep track on how many megabytes are being transfered a day/ a week / months. Download 3g watchdog
