I read a lot of old postings on this topic but here's and update.  I brought the XT SGS2 and popped my Vodafone sim in.  All seems to work fantastically.  I am however wondering if  I am getting 3G Data though.  Does the fact that I have used Video calling on this phone mean I have 3G?  is there a specific 3G icon up top when 3G is connected?  I do see a couple of arrows pointing in opposite directions when it is using data but no actual 3G icon.  Should I leave it as is or do I need to change some APN settings on this beast.  After having a Windows Mobile for the last 4 years i might just think the broadband is fast.  Hints and suggestions greatly appreciated.

Is there an H at all? HSDPA etc connections will show an H instead of 3G

Video calling over the 3G network is a 64k CSD connection and does not use the 3G packet switch network

Then it's running 3G or better,  I have a Telecom supplied SGS2 and have a Vodafone work SIM in it and it goes fine..
