I have a Galaxy S2 that for some reason does not work when it's connected to a 3G network(or at least I think it's connected, there's a '3G' symbol next to my signal meter). When I say it doesn't work, I mean that I don't have any data connection what-so-ever. No internet, nothing.
When my phone is connected with the 'H+' symbol next to the signal meter then everything works perfectly. But the problem is that my phone is constantly trying to use 3G, which of course is useless.
My phone details are:
Model Number: GT-I9100
Android Version: 2.3.3
Baseband version: I9100XXKE7
Kernal Version: 188.8.131.52-I9100XWKF3-CL276555root@DELL101 #2
Build number: GINGERBREAD.XWKF3
If anyone has an idea why this would happen, please give me a shout. It's so frustrating having no data connection for the most of my day. Also if there's a way to just stop the phone completely from trying to connect/use a 3G connection. That would be great.
PS - I'm in South Africa and my carrier is 'Cell C'.
Thank in advance!
