Hi,
My wife has a Samsung i-5800. She has a data plan - but we cant get 3G to come up as an option in the network.
All that is shown is the GSM or WCDMA options.

It's running android 2.1. (On vodafone network).

Does anyone know how to get 3G support?

Regards,
Ian

try this : go to Applications>settings>Wireless and Network>Mobile Network settings>APNS> click the physical menu button on the left side and select new APN on the screen> there will be lots of options here in the in the APN put www.vodafone.net.nz in the server put live.vodafone.com

if you want mms in the MMSC put http://pxt.vodafone.net.nz/pxtsend

in the MMS proxy put 172.030.038.003

mms port 8080

MCC 530

MNC 24

ApN tyoe internet + MMS

As Johnr said, WCDMA is 3G. If you have mobile data flowing, and WCDMA is displayed, then you are on a 3G network.

If it was purchased from Vodafone or one of it's resellers the APNs will already be there..
