Hi,I have activated 2G pack with 1GB free. I did not requested for 3G services. But when i change my phone to 3g mode (WCDMA) it picking up and i am able to browse high speed. Is this something happening by mistake from airtel or eveyone getting it?ThanksBala

if it is mistake... enjoy it.but there are high chances that the speed on 3G s capped at 144 kbpsas the ping are little better in 3G mode you feel that the speeds are better.

keep an eye on balance. a lot us have airtel connections that show 3G even though you are on a 2G plan. only rarely do i get better speeds on 3G. most of the times it sucks compared to Edge.

I dont think its possible. If u have taken a particular pack, then u cant be charged extra over that. Next, i guess the phones have a habit of showing 3G while the connection is on. My phone changes between 3-4 symbols.....E, H, H+, 3G......And neither have i got that fast speeds, nor have i got charged extra.

True.
Oflate Airtel Gprs also connects with 3G signal (wcdma/Hsdpa) but gives only 40 kbps.
better to force connect in Edge which gives around 180-200 kbps.

At times the trick works and you get decent speeds but most of the times, speeds suck and you are better off on edge instead.
