Android Internet connection to work in 3G or HSPA mode. Do you want your internet connection of android mobile to work on 3G mode? Android provides direct option to switch between 2G or 3G mode easily. One technical sentence: High Speed Packet Access(HSPA) protocol improves performance of 3G which utilizes Wide-band Code Division Multiple Access(WCDMA) network mode. This sentence only describes which Network mode 3G technology uses, only to make you understand and aware while you are selecting the network option in your android device while implementing below steps.

3.) Now you need to select “WCDMA Mode” option from Network mode or Preferred Network. Following are some general list of Network mode option with meaning.


  • GSM/WCDMA (auto connect) – automatically switches between 2G/3G modes.
  • GSM only – 2G only mode.
  • WCDMA only – 3G only mode.

4.) All Done, you can now enjoy 3G data on your android device.

Note: Before making your mobile to work on 3G properly, you need to verify the below listed points, satisfies the condition:

  • Your Network Service Provider, should provide good strength 3G services over the area, where you want to use 3G internet.
  • Your Mobile phone should support 3G Networks.
  • 3G data connection should be enabled or you need to call customer care to make your 3G work.
  • Device Should receive good signal strength.
  • Note, if your mobile supports two SIM, you need to make sure that either of One Slot should support 3G. Generally, most of the mobiles 1st Slot support 3G while the 2nd Slot does not support.
  • Check whether the APN setting is properly done.  Here are the list of APN setting of different network service provider:

Now Most of the network service provider provides 3G supported SIM, and you don’t need to replace the SIM instead. Using 3G Network consumes more battery, so it is highly recommended to use 2G or GSM network when you are facing battery problem. You may also see “Save Battery life in Android“.

      Dear ASHWIN NATRAJ,your request has been accepted.But the main thing is you should have a 3G pack activated.Then after go to mobile networks and change your signal to WCDMA only.Then your phone searches for 3G signals and connects to 3G or H or H+.
      . THANK YOU..
