I have a Sony Ericsson Xperia X10, and I updated the software to Gingerbread (Android 2.3.3), but I'm having problem connecting my mobile to 3G provided by my Network. When I go to settings and search for the networks available, it shows that I'm already registered on the network.

Though I have the data access via mobile network enabled, and WCDMA Network Mode, the mobile network state appears Disconnected!

Who's your carrier? – Al E. Sep 29 '12 at 1:10

This might not solve the problem, but it is the first thing I would look after:

Many carriers require specific settings in the menu Settings->Wireless and network -> Mobile networks.

Usually when you make a contract, they send you a message with the necessary configuration settings. Updating your phone might reset them or require new settings. If you think that might be the issue, you should have a look around on the website of your network provider. They often publish the necessary settings and/or offer a service to send you a configuration message.

Also, are you sure you need WCDMA? Just asking.

Thank u!i'll contact my Network providers, didn't think of it cz they already took the monthly cost for the 3G service, that's why i thought the problem would be only from the mobile device, about the WCDMA, i read earlier the difference between GSM and WCDMA, the first one only connects to 2G the second one connects to both 2G & 3G, but anyway i have my mobile now on WCDMA/GSM mode. – Adoc Sep 29 '12 at 11:57
No problem. If that solves your issue, you might consider to accept the answer. – Konstantin Schubert Sep 29 '12 at 12:20
