IPhone 3g Connection Problems

Greetings everyone,

My iPhone 3g like many others has poor reception and poor 3g, most of the time I find myself using the edge 2.5G.

I read that this is chip related, does this mean that Apple will change the faulted chips? Is there a way to fix this problem by myself?


is your iPhone 3g acting up also?

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.

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.

My iphone does not stay on 3g. How can i fix it? Its 90 percent of the time on edge...


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

Does't connect to network - search Network


Hi
It sounds like you may have a poor 3G reception in your area. Even though other O2 phones are working better they may be running on the 2G masts in your area.
Try in setting/network menu turning off 3G reception, that way the device will only look for 2G masts. Your handset will give priority to 3G masts where available and sometimes will hold onto the weakest signal making poor call quality, and or dropping connection.
Advantages to using 2G only = better standby and talk time / better reception where 3G is poor.
Disadvantages = Slower web browsing / no video calls.

WEP / WPA will only apply if you are connecting using WI FI and have nothing to do with your mobile network connection.
Hope that helps?

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.

Picture Quality Iphone


This is normal. Most pictures you see on websites are small representations. Try going to a wallpaper or background website, click on larger pictures and zoom in then.
As for Youtube, this is normal to have ratty quality videos. this is also dependent on your bandwidth, so it may drop in quality in a low reception area, but wifi should be pretty decent, just still typical YouTube quality.

IPhone 3G Troubleshoot


unless the dock is made for the 3g version of the phone rather than the '2g' version it may not work and even if it recognises the phone will not 'charge' the battery this is due to the pins that received the 12 volts of many docks being disconected in the new 3g phone so you have to charge via a usb which uses other pins for this purpose

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.
