Just got my iPhone 3G upgrade today and inserted my iPhone 2G sim card in it and activated it. A very painless operation indeed.
I have one question though;
Should there be a "3G" symbol near the signal strength indicator to show I have a 3G signal (as the picture on the box seems to suggest)?
I have a full strength signal indicator with "O2-UK" next to it, and a full Wi-Fi signal symbol next to that.
Should I also be seeing a 3G signal to indicate I have a 3G signal as opposed to a "normal" connection?

However, AFAIK you should have an indicator of a 3G signal if:
-The phone is actually picking up a 3G o2 signal
-The SIM card you are using as a 3G one.
As you've transferred your SIM from a 2G iPhone this probably means it's not 3G enabled.

Many thanks for your reply.
As for the post being in the iPhone forums; no, it shouldn't as this is an O2 related question more than a question about the iPhone itself. I will call customer services.

The respons about the iphone forum I think meant that as you have an iphone the dedicated Iphone forum may be a better place to post.

I just spoke to some guy at O2 who says that there may not always be a 3G symbol on my phone. I asked him if I needed to have 3G activated on my account but he said no as it was not an account specific thing but a handset thing.

How stupid do I feel! :robotsurprised:
I didn't know there was a 3G on/off setting; there wasn't one in my 2G iPhone.
I think I need to call Customer Services and apologise for any inconvenience I have caused them.
Does anybody volunteer to take the blame for me?
Thanks for all the help you have provided, everybody.
