    Folks,

    If you press Phone and then enter the code -

    *#*#4636#*#* (4636 spells INFO)

    you get additional info about your phone and battery, plus you can run a ping test :D


    Chegs.


    **DISCLAIMER** If you bugger your phone up by altering the settings in the menus provided, then I ain't gonna take responsibility for it ;)

    Hmm, I'm not going to change it but my Orange Hero with the latest Modaco Rom has WCDMA set as the preferred network....

    I wonder why? :thinking:

    3G is a type of CDMA known as WCDMA. CDMA just stands for Code Division Multiple Access. the W is Wideband I think. It's not the same as the CDMA used on the likes of Sprint in the US. It's a similar but incompatible technology.

    GSM on the other hand uses TDMA - Time Division Multiple Access.
