    Your area doesn't have 3G for Orange UK, just GPRS which is represented by the blue circle. Orange's 3G coverage is miniscule in comparison to networks like O2 and Vodafone- I suggest you move to either of those networks, or try another area.

    y the way-

    thanks for your help - im in central London thought id at least get a 3g network here

    just found another issue - when I put in a different sim card from a non uk country I can roam on orange and get the 3g network immediately - it just doesnt make sense

    in london there are hundreds of orange masts, however as there is many high buildings, or masts on sides of buildings, that is y you are not getting 3g coverage, regards
