This phone supports HSDPA or whatever it’s called. As far as I know that’s faster than 3G data connections. When I first got the phone from vodafone UK it auto-ran a utility that tried to disable HSDPA. Unfortunately (for them) it crashed, so it’s all still enabled on this phone.
The odd thing is that Vodafone clearly support it in places, and the phone connects fine. Perhaps it’s costing me a fortune. Does anybody know why it might be disabled by default?
