    Well, EDGE is kinda poor where I stay, so I would be pretty much happy if I can get 3G where I am, I don’t care if it drains my battery. All I want is the speed, who needs a slow internet by the way? Not me.

    The CAPCOM merger should be finalized asap cos Starcomms modem browses at the speed of a 90yrs old blind lady with Arthritis and a big bum running a marathon. Its appalling

    I used to bother about leaving my phone on 3g. Now with 3,100amh battery, it’s not an issue anymore. I use 3g anytime I want to browse. Our networks don’t provide fast Internet connection on edge (only Etisalat is manageable). So I allow you the 3g kick in whenever I need to browse. I do switch back to edge when the phone will be in idle state(e.g while sleeping). Edge is good enough to connect chat apps and incoming emails.

    i can count the number of times have used 3G on my phone in six months of usage. Sometimes i wonder why i bought a 3G phone. EDGE on etisalat and airtel os so mature in my area. If u are only surfing and doing social networks and small downloads no need for 3G

    I’m always on edge except when am streaming or downloading apps. Etisalat edge is reliable to some extent at least for receiving mails and mobile browsing. How I wish edge was fully deployed in this country prior to the advent of 3G! ????

      Well, EDGE was fully deployed. Almost every GSM operator that I know has full EDGE coverage on their network, and most was done before the deployment of 3G.

    I mostly use my phone on 3G when there’s power and I make sure it’s plugged so that in case Power goes off my battery is full. If theres no power I rarely use my phone on 3G unless i have to do something really really important.

    EDGE makes me wanna cuss in demon-speak. 3G zaps my battery like *snaps fingers*

    MTN can be pretty disappointing so I switch btw the 3G and EDGE even for browsing and my blackberry never fails to complain

    Great that the site is back online.

    Except for downloading fairly big files, i hardly ever make use of 3G, as i do all i can to conserve battery power.

    For convenuence, i have a widget that makes it easy to switch network modes in three taps.

    I use my EDGE to reduce the number of times I have to charge my mobile each day or week and if i’m not streaming any stuff online or doing downloads or uploads, EDGE serves me well too.
    Downloads are so fast on the 3G or HSDPA but when your phone starts to get so hot and battery depletes in just couple of hours, you have to re-strategize and conserve power or batteryJuice.

    I only use 3G when I have to download something urgently otherwise my phone is permanently on EDGE. I have decent EDGE speed on “hairtel” so it works fine for me.
