Hi all

Sorry for this very basic question. I have been playing around using the Advanced Config tools and PHM regedit to get my UK Touch Diamond all working as I want it. All is more or less getting there.

However, one of the items I changed using Adv Config Data Connections has made a change, I think it must have been HSDPA enable /disable. Previously my network icons showed either an H or a G. Now it shows a 3G. Which is fastest or best and why did my phone not have this enabled in the first place?? This is on T-mobile.

Am I best restoring the original setting as I was under the impression HSDPA was fastest.

Or have I just totally misunderstood? :D

HSDPA is definately faster than "normal" 3G!

I'm confused as to why the phone is now usually displaying "3G" rather than "H" as before for HSDPA. HSDPA was always enabled, now that I think about it - so what has changed to prevent "H" from displaying?

Is HSDPA Enabled? If so H should be display H when you have an HSDPA signal. Yhis does depend on the ROM - you haven't flashed a new one? Some only display the H (or U or 3G+) when data is actually being transferred, others, all the time when you are in an HSDPA area.
