Have a Droid 2 Global and have been traveling around Asia for the last 3 months. During this time I would estimate that 50% of the time I am unable to establish a data connection, and if I do...it's what I assume is the Edge network? (there is the E icon in the upper right). Never 3G. There are times that I will show a full five bars of service but will not be able to pull any data for hours - then suddenly, out of nowhere I will have a data connection.
I have all three data options tuned on (from Data Delivery), GSM/UMTS selected as the Network Mode, and "Select Automatically" selected for the operator selection. I have manually selected various 3G networks, but can never connect to the,.
Two questions. One - should I be able to use data no matter where I am if I am showing a 5 bar connection? Two - Is there any setting that I am missing to enable 3G while roaming internationally.
Any help is greatly appreciated!
Ps. I am very lucky having signed up for the VZW unlimited global data package during it's last few days.
