The 3G connection will look like other IP connections. If you're using a secure browser, the data will be encrypted, like in any other access mode you'd have.

Thanks mate, do you think we could provide a kinds of mobile firewall to pertect 3G users' detail on client side? Another thing is for the secure browser, we might need a new secure protocol, is there any in the market?

What kind of device is your data terminal? A Pocket PC, Palm, laptop, Tablet PC or a Smartphone? A firewall will only protect services on your device, but if there are no service then you shouldn't worry.

The firewall itself is not a privacy protection, but a way to block other users from accessing services on your device.

Not really. If your provider (bank for example) has SSL and the client on smartphone is using it, then the medium used will not impact. The encrypted information will be as secure as it would be over a wired connection.
