About 3G

3G Cell Phone Network

Using a 3G network is supposed to be spectacular.  Remember all the hype when the iPhone 3G was being released?  Well 3G actually stands for 3rd generation.

To keep it simple and not get technical, when your device indicates you are running on your carriers 3G network (a little 3G symbol appears on your home screen) your cellular speeds will be faster.  Streaming entertainment and video functions will improve.  So don't freak out when 3G shows up on your phone.  This is a good thing!

 Oscar Zavala
Oscar Zavala Yes I want 3G on the thunderbolt too because I live in an area without 4G. So its not fair!!!
 Jonathan White
Jonathan White Its amazing what you take for granted on other carriers... The most useful feature for this is looking up stuff on google maps while giving directions. Its always a very situational type of thing but I would rather have it then not.
 Israel Leiva
Israel Leiva So basically I will be able to update my fb status while I'm talking on the phone as I'm driving off a cliff. Alright!!! And this is what AT&T brags so much about. Give it up for technology!!!
 Dave Bell
Dave Bell No doubt they were the first with 4G, but WIMAX won't touch LTE... they did score with the EVO though... bastards ;-)
