Anonymous, 27 Feb 2012Are you able to use 3g once you make the settings as mentioned??? or it will disable 3G completely.it is like a toggle--u can switch between 2g to 3g and vice versa from 3g to 2g, nothing will stop working..it is just a way of selecting the mode of operation of the GSM network.
Most phones have this feature enabled i network settings...in samsung omnia w we can achieve the same by manually doing as i explained.
hope this clears your doubt..by the way..phone is slick and fast..smooth UI..battery in 2g comes for 2 days..cant ask for more..tired of android..WP is fresh and fast..i like it..many may disagree..but i feel it is an individual choice.
BEST FEATUREs- Super Amoled Screen..yes it is with corning gorilla glass!
IE 9 - loads pages quickly even in 2g (battery saver)
Gtalk official app from google..there are several other 3rd party apps for this..waiting for an official one from google (which i doubt coming very soon)

I have this phone.its excellent. In. Using n working too. Fast only biggest problem. I faced are battery backup is too less n other problem. Is this phone is useles for those who r addicted for downloading. Songs n other files from web as nothing Is possible only browsing not downloading
3g to 2g settings ( for indian users working solution)
Go into the phone dial mode.
If the screen does not change to “field test”, tap the dial button.
On the next screen which opens up, pop up the settings options from the bottom of the screen via the … button.
In the Network type, select 2G only
Hit the back arrow and go to your home screen.
Your phone will now work on the 2G network and consume lesser battery.
hope this helps improve the battery usage and sms bug as well.
in dis phone downloading frm web sites such as djmaza, songs.pk, moviesmobile.net are possible or not?
I knw their is no sharing via bluetooth bt bluetooth headphones are connected or not?
N last questions avi video file is supported or not? If not support then any software for supporting avi file is available in marketplace or not?
Plz reply me m waiting
Sorry for mnia w it is better described here
Solution:Try it and tell if it is of any use.Some magic kry codes need to be used ;) to change settings.

This is a very good phone to begin with. Processor rocks! Using it for over a month now and it has never lagged. Touch experience is beautiful and smooth.
Still many areas to catch-up on...but an excellent option for someone who wants to buy a Windows Phone Mango!! Features better than Lumia.

Samsung rules.I will never trust Nokia.I had issues with their X2 model in the past which had showstopper bugs like the one you mentioned.X2 used to crash randomly.Customer Support never acknowledged it for like 3 weeks.Then it was a major bug they will say it is a virus on your mobile thats what they are thought to repeat like parrots.Their testing standards have dropped.They are desperately hanging on to their brand name rather than focusing on quality.
Samsung and HTC had delivered windows phones omnia 7 etc earlier which had version wp7 .
Naturally omnia w which is wp7.5 will be less buggier.
The lumia series is Nokias first entry into windows directly into 7.5 .As expected use customers as testers and spend rest of money on huge adds.
I am happy I never purchased the lumia.
their 9 page long thread reminds me of X2 where I had to resort to forums to get it fixed.The call centers will ask you to take it to nokia care and leave your phone with them for testing blah blah etc.
It is so funny this issue is still ongoing in thread
Hopefully they get their act together and spend money on testing than bombarding the Tvs with adds.
