Had the local 12 year old neighbour Get me root access on my much loved Samsung S2 and he has tweaked and twisted it and it is running fantastically now.  All the old problems of dying battery and funny SD card failures have stopped with him putting Jelly Bean on.  I was trolling through the settings and see a setting listed under "Radio"  with nothing input yet in the settings.    The title at the top says  HSPA.  Can anyone tell me if I should choose UMTS ONLY,   HSDPA only,  or   HSDPA + HSUPA in the settings?
Again  on Vodafone with a Samsung Galaxy S2 with Android 4.2.2?   Thanks in advance.


P.S.  this guy is a genius.  12 years old and with a Simple Android phone which he brought for just over a hundred bucks.  Mother confirms he has had so many different Roms on his phone and always managing to get his phone going again when he strikes trouble.   A  creative little dude who is learning heaps.

Our Dual Carrier network is HSPA+ so the HSDPA + HSUPA would seem appropriate if I would hazard a guess. I'd probably try that first but if that doesn't work, try HSDPA only - the hardware seems to support that.

Just a note rooting your phone means you won't be able to receive push updates from our network. not a major deal, but just so you're aware that all future OS updates will have to be done manually.

HSPA is up to 14.4Mbps DL and up to 2Mbps UL it's HSDPA and HSUPA shortened to HSPA
