3G enables you to achieve higher data speeds than when using GSM. If you select WCDMA only, your mobile phone can only connect to 3G networks. If you select GSM only, you can't achieve high data speeds. If you select GSM / WCDMA auto, your mobile phone automatically switches between the two network modes provided you're within range of a 3G network.

Tap WCDMA only, GSM only or GSM / WCDMA auto.
