    Hi all

    Is it possible to force a 3G signal somehow? I know that you can force GSM and WCDMA. 3G and HSPDA are both the later. My phone constantly tries for a H signal and usually it is pretty poor, I am sure 3G would be better.

    Thanks guys

    GSM/3G are different bands so you could have a poor 3G signal but a great Edge signal but still be using 3G.

    This isn't really the case with 3G/HSDPA. You hardly ever see 3G as it is usually HSDPA strength. Think of HSDPA as being a bar of signal up from 3G. Its basically super 3G. If your H is low, your 3G is just as low.
