E, H+, or G?
Woke my phone from sleep the other day, I think it was Saturday. And I swear, for a brief moment I saw a "G" where I normally see the H+/E.
It's possible my eyes deceived me. Dunno.
FWIW - I'm in MSP and there was an article in one of the local papers recently about how ATT is actively upgrading/backhauling the towers in MSP.

G stands for GPRS
E is for EDGE
H+ is for HSPA or 3G
That being said, I work in an area that has spotty 3G coverage and my phone is constantly switching back and forth between H+ and E. Most times when it switches it shows G for a few seconds. I also had a BBerry for two years and it did the exact same thing so I'm assuming it's ok as long as it doesn't stay on G.

I've tried setting to gsm only and gsm auto, with both settings my phone still switches back and forth from edge to hspa.
Iphone and Blackberry both have the option to use 2g (edge) only in the network settings. The inspire's network settings menu has several options that are locked, leading me to believe that ATT has simply disabled this feature.
