Help with restoring 3g network connection please

Hey guys,

After reading an article on how to increase android battery life, I changed the network settings on my phone to only use 2g. Thought this was cool until I wanted to use an app requiring 3g, so reverted back to 3g setting but still I can??

What exactly do you mean by 'I changed the network settings on my phone to only use 2g'!

Hi,

On 2Degrees/Vodafone you can force your phone to connect to the 2G network and disable 3G. This is a setting under mobile networks. Experience with this seems to save quite a lot of battery, but obviously only suitable for those who those who don't use 3G services that often - data is quite slow when only on 2G.

Yes but as your quote says switching the phone to 2G only will not stop anything from working it will just make mobile data slower.

Under mobile networks in settings did you uncheck mobile data!
Or have you changed other settings,
