Just returned from Asian countries that have, I am advised, 3g networks with carriers.  My Iphone did not detect any.  Which limited me to wifi sites, not all which linked to my Iphone 3gs.


I receive 3 g signals in New Zealand - home base.


Question: should my iphone detect 3g signals, wherever they are available?

Or worse, is my Iphone faulty?


Thank you

Did you get voice and text? Which operator are you with, and which model of iPhone?

Did you action a manual network selection to a 3G network? If yes what was the rejection message displayed?

It is the 3gs.  After each landing, it took ages to even gain a list of carriers - and several attempts.  Since owning this Iphone (Dec 09) I have found it slow to find off-shore carriers.


As to manually setting for 3g in another country, there is nothing in the settings which covers this - as far as I can see.  I simply selected from the list of carriers.  There were no error messages.
