I have no clue for wifi. 3G has several standards, U880 supports T-CMDA (3G) which can only be used in China. In europe there are two standards, WCDMA (not supported by u880) and UMTS (i am not sure u880 supports it or not).
AFAIK, your 3g connection works under two conditions.
- your cell phone netwrk provider supports 3G on UMTS
- U880 supports UMTS?
See post 9 of this thread for more info.
when I bought the phone I didn't realize that China had another 3G technology and as you mention, U880 implements TD-SCDMA
, and not UMTS, so 3G will never work in Europe for this device. That's a pity (for me). In the other hand GPRS should work, but I couldn't configure it yet (maybe I should set up something on the phone, I'm really clueless). Anyway, having a working android with a working wifi makes this phone a cheap improvement to my old N1110.
With some automatic translation help I managed to install a chinese ROM and Market, if anybody is interested I can post the links. With that ROM wifi is working, market is working (but needs a PC to download the apps) and autorotate also works.
Edit: I cannot find again the forum where I took the ROM from, but you can search for u880_b14_mini.zip.
After flashing the ROM, to get market and google services you must follow this guide http://www.hiapk.com...781451-1-1.html
which includes downloading the me722_update8.zip. The google translation is not very good, but understanding it is not very hard. The most confusing part is the vending.apk, some details on that:
- Install the vending.apk from me722_update8.zip (you will get an error)
- Delete, if present, /system/app/Vending.apk
- Move /data/app/...Vending-1.apk to /system/app
- Rename ...Vending-1.apk to Vending.apk
When surfing on the market, you may have problems downloading the files, they remain on the queue but the download never starts. If you use the market through your pc, they will be properly downloaded to your phone and afterwards you can install them with the Filer or any installer. Another workaround is to use ADVERTISING SPAM, which works directly from the phone.
