Nokia 808 - HSPA menu gone on firmware 1507

Nokia 808 - HSPA menu gone on firmware 1507

The Nokia HSPA suggested workaround here

cannot be done, because the setting does not exist.


The menu structure


Settings > Connectivity > Admin. settings > Mobile data > High speed packet access


is missing the last item.


Under Mobile Data there are just two items:


Mobile data connection (when needed)

Access point (none)


Where has it gone?


Now, on my Nokia 700, I cannot find it either! That is v. 1506. This looks like a recent change.

OK... I think I have found out some interesting things.


Firstly, the HSPA enable switch does not appear unless you are connected to a 3G network. I presume it means 3G or HSPA. It certainly does not appear when the phone is connected to GPRS only, or has no signal. It is REALLY WEIRD of Nokia to make config items thus dependent! What have they been smoking?


Secondly, even where I am located, with a strong HSPA signal, displayed on a Nokia 700 as "3.5G", the 808 shows "3G". I have just downloaded (from a known very fast server) a 24MB file in 60 secs, which is 400kbits/sec which is at the top end of UK 3G speeds. Another test from another known-fast server of a 24MB file took the same time. So while this is not conclusive, because a poor HSPA  connection could be running that slow, it looks like Nokia has disabled HSPA on the new batch of the 808...


BTW does anybody, when they login here to post, get a popup window which goes to a website called, and a load of adverts around the while Nokia site?


That popup is clearly being triggered by the Nokia server. Doing a google finds a lot of hits commencing early Feb 2013 - exactly when my Firefox stopped working with this site. The only way I can post here is with IE8.
