Thread: update a 2.5 g phone to 3g?

  1. #1
    Default update a 2.5 g phone to 3g?
    is there any way that once the 3g phones come out that we will be able to run our phones at that speed? i have heard rumors that there might be a way to do it in the software, but i have also heard otherwise...will our phones run at faster speeds anyway because the networks will be faster?

    hmmm...well, will the current phone run faster on a faster network, or will we still be in the slow lane?...i'm trying to see if i should sell my phone now and get the most for it to someone who doesn't know a newer version is coming out, or if because the network will also be updated, my current phone will be better than it is right now in the speed area, making the upgrade not as necessary...any ideas?

    i read somewhere that all att's phone will be 3g soon.. if that's the case, and i could absolutely see that happening since a lot of their cheaper phones are 3g, won't they do away with edge?

    Aren't there a couple of sites that took apart the iPhone? Wouldn't people have noticed a 3G chip?

    i was just kidding. but its not entirely unprecedented. They didn't tell us about the built in screenshot capabilities.

    Yeah, that's true =/. But it's easier to notice a 3G chip from a disassembled iPhone than it is to notice a screenshot capability without the source code ;P.

    i'm hoping that a lot of people will jump to the 3g stuff and leave the edge with less traffic and faster speeds...

    when you buy your phone it comes with a 3G sim card already......mean anything?

    Default dont waste your money just yet ..
    i see no reason to have a 3g phone... the firmware is more useful than a few bytes of speed.. online videos arent that exicting to me and esp if i cant get the ripped ones like i have on my pc...? gamming is what will test me when it comes to getting the 3g phone for its speed
