    Hi, apparently that is the case (hearsay, not tested). Anyway I installed a nifty application that allows me to switch between 2g, 3g and dual mode manually via the menu. It’s called “3g/2g/dual mode selection applet”.

    Hi, what are the downsides of turning off dual mode? No connection when out of reach of a 3g network?
