    Yes, as long as you have a good 3/3.5G signal.

    I don't know. Haven't try it yet. But I think like our forum guru said, as long as you have 3 / 3.5 G signal, it will be done, coz the device will search the best connection. With the phone, you can access ONLY 3 / 3.5 G with choosing UMTS in connectivity menu.

    theres one app... joiku hotspot (not sure if i spelled it correctly). it will turn your phone to a wifi hotspot using 3G network.

    My brother uses that on his e71 and it makes his phone really hot! not sure if its even safe for thouchphones du to the heat it creates or if the app exist for s60v5. But i think i saw this app on the Ovi store...

    That's also what I felt, and the battery severely dried.

    Its the wifi that hogs the power and creates the heat. Surely there is a way to connect over usb to the phones 3g so I dont have to use the wifi..

    Just plug your tube to computer via USB cable, and let internet wizard finish it through internet/modem setting in control panel

    If you set your phone to UMTS, it will receive 3G only so you will just use 3G. But if it loses signal you disconnect as well, which is why dual mode is good so if you lose 3G signal, it reverts to GPRS, then when you get 3G signal again, it uses 3G again.

    You need Pc Suite or Ovi suite installed to your PC i think to make it work.
