how to tell if phone is using 3g signal? I'm guessing there would be a 3g icon but have not seen one yet.. also anyway to force the software to choose 3g over 2g?

The following assumes you're running ICS :

If 3g is enabled and you have coverage, a 3G or H should appear over the signal bars as shown here:

If you have signal but no letter/number on the signal bars, make sure data is enabled in the Wireless and network settings. Also make sure to not tick the 'use 2g networks only' option.

If all of this is true and you still don't see the symbol on the signal bars, maybe you aren't in an area with 3g coverage? The networks have maps available to figure that out.

If 3g is available and enabled, you will always find the symbol there, it is preferred over 2g.

Not much more I can really say, except when I first got my OSD it wasn't having the 3g at all, although that was down to the broken sim provided by orange in my case,
