Can anyone here help me with this.

My Nokia E52 used to show 3.5G on the top left when it was idle for the whole time i've had it. (about a year)

Sometime in the last 2 weeks, it now idles at 3G and switches to 3.5G when i activate a data connection.


Just been nosey here.  Does anyone know why the change was made?

Apart from the idling, the phone still works as normal as a phone and modem

Yes 3.5G HSPA is not required when not using packet data services. They are only allocated by the network now when required this saves capacity per cell

ok thanks. in April i went to england, greece and iceland and no one else had it. was strange they did it here.

wonder if the battery life will be better. i force my phone to UMTS only as it used to annoy me the phone would go back to GSM for phone calls which gave worse reception
