    ....on the screen when using the internet ?

    I've noticed this today. It started on G, then turned to E and then H in different intervals. I thought is was a 3G phone. Mine is on o2.

    • g = gprs
    • e = edge
    • 3g = 3g
    • h = hsdpa

    I've had the GPRS on when accessing the maps as a satellite icon appears, never had an icon showing 3G. However my work colleague uses an Ipod with Orange network and his shows the icon 3G .

    GPRS is worst, HSDPA is best

    diference is in the bandwith, phone switches network when the one with higher bandwith is available.
