Hi everybody,
I guess its kinda silly question but what the heck:
I'm using our great phone outside of the US(Israel to be specific) and just got a new sim card yesterday that suppose to support 3g networks(my old one didn't).
The question is:How could I know if I'm on 3g network or 2g network...
I don't see ant notification for that on the stautus bar and didn't find a setting to enable that(beside the wcdma which is enabled)
Thanks
Alon
P.S - I forgot to mention that my provider(Orange) supports and provide 3g network

theres one there, it just RARELY shows itself. Mine has came on a few times on elevators. There was just a thread about this about a week ago. But most times unless your in a edge area it will show 4G. if you really want to know what your connected to go into settings>about phone>status, and it will tell you what your connected to

Yea, it is there, but rarely shows its face. I still haven't seen one, but have seen screen shots of it.

Yes, there is, but it also depends on your rom. Some may not have a 3g icon in it
