How comes my phone keeps on displaying 3G & H?

Sorry about this.

I wroke up this morning only to notice that there's a symbol that keeps showing on my phone and it looks like a H inside a little white box. I've tried to remove it 3 times by going to mobile networks and switching to 02 without the 3G capability but it just switching itself back to 02 3G. Why? Is this a ploy to squeeze more monthly repayments from it's hard pressed customers who are already struggling with money? If this means our monthly repayments will increase on top of other huge increase in bills, no income and unco-operative help from the job centre, then I will have to go without food every other day!

It's a SonyEricsson C902 paid monthly by direct debit. 100 free messages and 100 free minutes of calls each month

Sony Ericsson H symbol? - The Student Room

Well, yes, it pops up whenever you're in an area which has HSDPA coverage... And goes away when you're not. You'll also see an indicator of whether you're in a 3G area or not.

You may also see an E which would indicate EDGE coverage (only if you're on Orange or O2 though).

How do I do that? lol

Ummm... On my C902...

Menu > Settings > Connectivity > Mobile Networks > GSM/3G Networks > GSM Only

Note: If you do this high speed internet will be disabled too
So it's either that or the H stands for "hell hell hell hell"

H is 4G, is it not? Are you not wanting to be on 3 or 4g?

H is good! Means an even speedier data connection than 3G. Unless they charge you more whereever you are for HSPDA - they don't here.
