3G support

Recommended Posts

Hello there,

I've been reading here and there and it seems that there is no 3G support for me on this phone...... :P

I got this unlocked Hero:

And I've upgraded the ROM, enhanced package, and even the radio thing... no support for 3G, and I've tried everything...! Tonight, I did the last test, put my chip on another very simple Nokia phone, and 3G was just there smiling at me :D

What am I supposed to do? Is there any solution for this? Or I can be forgetting about 3G....?????

Edge (and wifi) works just fine.

Please enlighten me!

Thanks and regards,

MO

Thanks.

Did that several times... but, just to be on the safer side, I'm setting it ON, rebooting it, back to OFF, and then reboot it again...

Would it have anything to do with the radio part of the custom ROM???

Cheers,

MO

Here is the info on my phone... maybe some of you could tell if I did something wrong!

Baseband version: 63.18.55.06EU_6.35.06.18

Anyone, please... the fact of not having 3G on my phone is driving me crazy... B-)

Thanks again!!

You're right, rherman... It seems that my problem, unfortunately, is the type of band my mobile operator uses... it is 1900 MHz.

Is there any chance that through using the radio rom images available I could overcome this "minor" problem.......????

Thanks!

no, you cannot download hardware from the internet. a sprint hero should help, though i don't know whether it works on at&t.

No, a Sprint Hero won't help as Sprint is a CDMA network, which is a total different technology.

Everything is working smoothly now... even the Activesync is good enough over Edge... so I cannot complain much... once the Hero comes here, and it should get with 3.5G support, I'll upgrade it. In the meantime, I'm enjoying it :-p

Cheers,
