X6 Turn off 3g

How do i turn off 3g on my X6 16gb? I want to ensure 3 mobile dont get funny with bandwidth. Also i am coming from a nokia e71 (im actually quite disappointed with the X6 tbh.. but whatever..) and when making a connection the e71 would ask which connection i wanted to use... how do i get that dialogue box up?

 

TIA

Tools>Settings>Connection>Access points

 

Choose the access point you want to disable or dont want to work, then just edit any of the parameters like add your name onto the Access point name. Now everytime it tries to connect your phone, it wouldn't.

 

Cant remember about the wifi dialogue box though.. I think you just enable Wireless scanning.

Re: X6 Turn off 3g

To turn 3G off, go to Menu>Settings>Connectivity>Network, set it to GSM.

 

To make the phone ask for which connection to use, go to Menu>Internet>Web>Options>Settings>General>Access Point>Always ask.

Hi, sorry for a little offtopic here.

 

But the my phone is allways connected to the internet, even when all access points are "always ask".

The phone ask for a internet connection, don't know why I press cancel but after a minute is connected ...

Re: X6 Turn off 3g

That would be it alright. Whatsapp is very aggresive when it comes to maintaining internet connection. I stopped using it for that reason. Uninstall it and see.
