    I think that is simply going to be dependent on where you are. Their network doesnt have complete 3G coverage. If you are not in the 3G area you wont be able to get it.

    Not to hijack, but Nepperz is 100% right. But, with that being said, I've also run into issues with different OS's/Hybrids/etc. that had SERIOUS connectivity issues. What OS are you currently using?

    The only way you are going to be able to use 3G is if coverage is available AND your device is operating as expected on that 3G coverage. There is no way to specify use of 3G for tethering. It's either there, or it isn't.

    However, back to my previous point. If you are having connectivity issues in a known 3G area due to either a device issue, or an OS problem, I would return the device back to an official OS and start from there. If you still experience 3G connectivity problems contact your carrier.

    Does this help?

    Here is another way to look at it to ican.. TM is right on what to do if there is a problem, but lets say you could get your phone to only read 3G then if you were in an area that there was no 3G you would have no signal because you have made the phone unable to receive anything but 3G.. hope this all helps

    The above posters are correct. I work for AT&T and have a 9700 running .423 on AT&T with the same menu options. The reason you see that is because when 3G is unavailable or weak your phone will automatically switch to the EDGE(2G) network to continue normal operation. It's normal to see what you see.
