I live in the UK and the reason why my iPhone 3GS does that is because some areas are not covered by a 3G network, so it uses normal internet also check in your settings that the 3G is on, as soon as i come in to a 3G area the 3G icon is back on

What is difference between iphone and iphone 3g


  • 3G speed capability
  • The iPhone 3G includes a built-in GPS.
  • The 3G is a bit thinner at the edges and includes a headphone jack that is flush to the side.


. The iPhone 3G differs from the iPhone in that it used 3G networking and included built-in GPS for expanded location based mobile services, and new iPhone 2.0 software
, which included support for hundreds of third-party applications that were built with the iPhone SDK

I forgot my iPhone Passcode. What can I do to unlock it?


iPhone setting:*
- Auto-Lock: 1 Minute;*
- Passcode Lock: On, require passcode immediately, after 15 min or 4 hours etc;*
- Network: Turn 3G Off

Scenario 1: Home screen is active with screen on*
1. Press power button for seconds until asked to '"slide to power off"
2. Slide to power off
3. press power button to turn on iPhone
4.*When asked to enter passcode, touch the "Cancel" key, then slide to unlock
5. bypassed passcode

Scenario 2:*
1. On the screen of being asked to enter passcode, press power button for seconds until asked to '"slide to power off"
2.*Slide to power off
3. press power button to turn on iPhone
4.*When asked to enter passcode, DO NOT touch any key on the screen, press power button for seconds until asked to '"slide to power off"
5. Slide to power off
6. press power button to turn on iPhone
7.*When asked to enter passcode, touch the "Cancel" key on the right bottom corner, then slide to unlock
8. bypassed passcode

Notes:
1. When Network setting changes to Enable 3G: ON, "3G" signal shows up, passcode CANNOT be passed through
Go to a underground parking lot or a lift where 3G signal is weak, when 3G signal switches to "E" (Edge), passcode CAN be passed through following above steps
2. When no 3G or Edge signal, above steps don't work

Conclusion:
Seems passcode security is related to network status
Possible security hole under Edge

Can you surf the web on an Apple iPhone without a Wi-Fi connection?


There are two nation-wide cell networks that allow you to browse the internet. The EDGE network (for original iPhone) and the 3G network (3G is faster, but not as widespread and can only be accessed through the iPhone 3G ). iPhone monthly plans include unlimited use of the internet, without using up your calling minutes.

If you can take advantage of a nearby wireless hub, you'll have much better speed than when you're on a cell-phone data network... but even without wireless, you can still browse, email, work and play via the EDGE or 3G cell-phone network.

How to get 3g tmobile internet with unlocked iphone


Unfortunately, it won't work.

AT&T is using 850 and 1900 (UMTS band II/V). T-Mobile USA is using 1700 and 2100 (UMTS band IV).

The iPhone 3G supports "UMTS/HSDPA (850, 1900, 2100 MHz)"

Only one T-Mobile USA frequency is supported by the iPhone 3G, which, as you've discovered, is the Edge network.

IPhone 3g Connection Problems


AT&T doesn't have good 3G service. Often you may find that you do not have 3G reception, and the phone switches to EDGE. This is not a problem with the iPhone. I live in a metropolitan area, so I do not experience problems, since 3G coverage is good. However, when i travel around, often i go to EDGE as well. Like i said this is a problem with the network and not your phone.

IPhone vs. iPhone 3G


The iPhone 3G has all the features of the first one,
plus faster 3G data downloads,
GPS, and a better battery life.
Externally, the phone's casing is slightly changed, with a thinner edge and thicker middle, but a flush headphone jack and solid-colored back make up the only other major differences visually. Everything else from the screen to the number of buttons and switches on the outside are the same.
