Hello Im wondering before I contact t-mobile is there a setting that Im missing to get the 3g?The coverage in my area should be great for 3g but since I had the phone yesterday its been 2g.Thanks for any help
Have you installed an existing (old) SIM into the phone? If so, it might not be 3G enabled.
I've just been through the maze with Tesco Mobile. Two Samsung Galaxy Minis (returned) and now the HTC Wilfire S all failed to get a 3G connection with about five different SIM cards. I had the handset unlocked, installed an O2 SIM and got 3G/HSDPA straight away. I'd suspect your SIM card as the source of the problem.
This might sound daft, but if you are with T-Mobile is your phone connecting to the T-Mobile network? T-Mobile customers can share the Orange signal which helps improve coverage but when roaming on to Orange you'll only get a 2G signal. Catches me out now and again that one.
