Choose network mode

3G enables you to achieve higher data speeds than when using GSM. If you turn on 3G, your mobile phone automatically switches between 3G and GSM provided you're within range of a 3G network. If you turn off 3G, you can't achieve high data speeds.

Tap the indicator next to Enable 3G.

Depending on the current setting, the function is turned on or off.
