    Default No 3G on samsung s duos

    I hope someone can help.
    I am new to the Android OS. I had a samsung Galaxy ace2 but bought a samsung S duos because I have a personal and work number and wanted to avoid carrying 2 phones.

    The phone uses android 4.0.4

    I cannot get the mobile data connection to run on 3g/hsdpa, it will only run on gprs and is thus very slow when I am away from a wifi connection.

    I have gone to settings/more settings/mobile networks (then changed to sim1 which is my preferred data provider) and the option "use packet data" is ticked/active. The APN is, I think, correct - set to TMobile.

    Still only gprs connection?

    Anyone able to help?

    Many thanks

    Hi guys,
    Have you found any solution for this problem? I am having the same trouble.
    I moved recently to the US, and my carrier is T-Mobile. Back in Europe I had fantastic HSPA+ connection speed.

    Does it have something to do with the Firmware update recently released by Samsung.

    Any help is appreciated !

    u need to know the exact frequency of the hsdpa your operator uses, and confirm if your mobile works with hsdpa in the same frequency.
