    You need to set the Access Point Name settings (APN) in the phone for your wireless carrier. A simple google search would have found these settings which I just copied and pasted here with a few typo fixes:

    On the device, tap the Menu icon (or Applications > Menu)

    Select Settings > Wireless & networks > Mobile networks > Access Point Names.

    Press the Menu key and select New APN

    Name: Jawalnet
    APN: jawalnet.com.sa
    Proxy: <Not set>
    Port: 8080
    Username: <Not set>
    Password: <Not set>
    Server: <Not set>
    MMSC: http://mms.net.sa
    MMS proxy: 10.1.1.1
    MMS port: 8080
    MCC: 420
    MNC: 01
    Authentication Type: PAP

    Remember to hit Menu, Save, then tap the round button to highlight it which enables the new APN. Give it a few minutes and you will see the 3G/H icon and arrows in the status bar at the top. You're good to go.

    Don't worry then as you do have 3G set up already. H is the faster version of 3G so it's better ;)
