    Hello, so I have this phone since mid October and I used only wi fi till now. I have 200mb mobile network for month but I really dont know how to work with it. First of all how to turn it on or it turns on himself when there is no wi-fi? When I turn my wi fi off it seams that mobile network turns on and in notification bar it does not show 3g but E with two arrows up and down, what kind of network connection is that? How to turn 3g on?
    Is there widget or sometging to turn on/off 3G?

    First of all place the on/off widgets for Mobile Network and Wi-Fi on your home screen.
    > + (or long press on the home screen) > Widget > Settings > ...

    E will be EDGE - faster variety of GPRS (i.e. 2G data).

    H is HSDPA, which is the fastest variety of 3G.

    So if you are seeing H then you have 3G enabled already.

    If it change between E (G) and H (3G), I think the signal strenght of H (3G) is weak at you area and so it switched back to E.
    When I drive with my car I see this changing too (areas have different signal strengts).

    The arrows with E and H shows when you have data transmission e.g. with email.

    Theoretically the arrows could show with G, E, 3G and H.
    But i see the arrows only with E nd H too :)
    Have look in the DHD manual page 18 (Status Icons).

    Why you only see E and H is likely down to your network and perhaps your firmware. I've seen G, E, 3G and H one mine, though E is the one I see least often. I read that Orange UK handsets show "3G+" rather than H - I did use that radio firmware for a few days, but can't remember for sure whether I saw this.
