Check Availability of 3G Services in Your Area [Tutorial]

Samsug_H

While we know that 3G services will be commercially launched – in major cities of Pakistan – with-in few days, it would be a good idea to check if 3G services are already available at your location or not.

This can be specifically good because cellular companies are already testing 3G services at major locations in Islamabad / Rawalpindi, Karachi and Lahore. In Multan too, we have heard.

One more thing, at least two operators are allowing its customers to experience 3G services. Meaning that you can just join their 3G networks and start using 3G services.

Here’s a simple way to check if 3G services are available at your location or not:

3G Ready Phones

First of all, to use 3G service, you need to have a compatible 3G handset. No, not all handsets are 3G ready.

You can check compatibility of your handset with 3G networks by simply checking the network specification of your respective handset on GSM Arena or any other similar website.

Let’s take Huawei G610 as an example. According to GSM Arena, its network specifications are as following:

  • 2G Network: GSM 900 / 1800 / 1900 – SIM 1 & SIM 2
  • 3G Network: HSDPA 900 / 2100 – SIM 1

So its apparent that Huawei G610 is 3G compatible and hence can be used for below test.

Checking 3G Availability in Your City

As we mentioned above, cellular companies are already rolling out 3G networks in major cities. During this, you can switch to their 3G network and start using the service even before the commercial launch.

P.S. I am using 3G network for last few days, and experience has been smooth so far.

Note: We are using this Android phone running Android 4.3 for this Tutorial. iOS users and those using other platforms can follow the steps required with their own menus.

Go to

  • Settings
  • click “More”

Screenshots

Now click on “Mobile Networks”

Screenshots2

Now on next screen, click on “Network Mode”

screen002

Here you will have to select “WCDMA (preferred) / GSM. This will enable your handset to search for 3G networks as well.

screen004

Now go back to “Mobile Network” screen and click on “Service Providers”

Now your phone will search for all available networks (both 2G and 3G) at your location.

When I searched, below was the result shown to me:

screen006

As it may appear to you, Ufone and Telenor networks have enabled 3G services at this location. Warid, Zong and Mobilink have just 2G networks here.

If your network has 3G enabled in your location and it is appearing in the list, then simply select the 3G version of your operator and you are done.

Once your phone is connected with 3G network, you can go to Settings->About Phone->Status to see “Mobile Network Type”, which in my case was HSPA.

Please Note

While we have confirmed that 3G services during the trial period are free, you must keep an eye on your balance to make sure that you are not charged with any data services. Data charges with 3G networks can be explicitly high.

Do let us know if you were able to experience 3G network in your area or not.

    • Muhammad Aamir

      Bro! They have both licences 3G and 4G. If you want to use 4G just send a msg and subscribe it you will able to use 4G akin if you want to use 3G you can subscribe it via SMS.You can use both services, you can choose, what you want to use!

      • Confuser

        where to send message for subscription?

        • Ahmed Habib

          To my ufone number :-)

    • Khan

      4G for sometime will remain a marketing stunt from Zong. However you will start using 3G services within month if you are living in one of 5 major cities.
      Telenor however is rolling out 3G very fast nationwide

      • Irshad

        Achaaa bhai wah humay tu pata nahi tha

        • Khan

          Pata rakha karo acha hota hai.

  • Talha Rafiq

  • Sumair

    Aamir Bhai please answer my technical question? Will the voice quality be upgraded on 3G network WCDMA or will it remain the same on old 2G GSM network?? I’ve heard that voice quality is improved on 3G, please answer??

    • aamir7

      Depends on load, it may get worse, or may get better.

      • Ameen

        Also depends on whether the network has enabled and your phone supports ‘HD voice’ codecs.

      • Alamdar Raza

        First of all thank u for all those live updates yesterday. If there is a reward or shield that the government gives to those who offer unique special services like u did yesterday, u deserve it… Just a couple of questions, bare with me : 1) Which 3g networks are all the operators going to deploy? Would they start with normal UMTS 3g, then move along to HSPA, and then to HSPA+, or just start with the fastest one? 2) When Zong launches their 4g lte services, will they be Td-lte or Fdd-lte? Which would be better, or whether they would launch LTE-ADVANCED, the same technology they are going to deploy in their homeland China?… More than just a couple of questions, but u would really be a dear if answered them in a little detail :)

  • Nadir Khan

    Telenor is test there 3g service now ? is it working on iphone ?

    • yes its working on iPhone i am using it on iPhone 4… just need to enable it from settings :)

    Hello Warid users! This post is not for u guys so don’t bother to check ur network stats until u switch to any other network. by the way, why are u still stuck to warid???

    • Farhan Naeem

      Hello Warid Users, keep your patience, you will find WARID on 4G LTE Network due having neutral license 1800 MHz which Warid purchased back in 2004 at the time of entry in Pakistan. Donot lose your heart.

  • Malik Mohammad Baloch

    I can spot mobilink 3G in my search in Quetta….

    • Irshad

      Mobilink is not launching 3G soon as they are in process of network swapping

  • Saqib

    stick with warid because warid is going to offer 4G in June 2014

    • Muhammad Aamir

      What is your source of the news? Please!
      Confirm or guess?

      • Saq

        Told by an employee of Warid who works in transmission planning department of Warid

      • Waqas Tariq

        goto tribune website, its todays story.

        • NSN

          Great .any way other operators cant improve their voice quality and peoples are expecting good data services from them ,i think these peoples are either Innocent or………………..
          Waiting for warid 4g they will really rock

          • Waqas Tariq

            Well the 3G speeds on mobilink are good. Here is a screenshot of the torrent speed, don’t mind the upload speeds, I have intentionally limited that. I get ~360 on PTCL 4Mbps, Mobilink 3G is twice that.

            • love.pk

              ooohhhlllallalal i love mobilink. on torrent it,s amazing speed thank,s your screenshots .in which city you recieving 3G SIGNALS…please

              • Waqas Tariq

                It is amazing. I am in Karachi.

            • Saad

              Using torrents over 3G, no wonder, the country’s networks will get choked considering it will have people like you abusing it.

              I hope the carriers come up with strict data buckets, including unlimited but expensive ones. Else Pakistanis will ruin the 3G experience by using it to download via torrents. Can always trust Pakistanis to abuse any technology outlet available to them.

              • Waqas Tariq

                Who do you think you are? I was testing the 3G speeds when I was downloading the torrent.

                Yes, I will download whatever I please over 3G when it launches. You have to be dumb if you think I am going to pay for 3G and then not utilize the bandwidth.

                When you buy 3G, why don’t you restrict your usage to ‘dial up’ speeds, so the internet gets better?

                No wonder many Pakistanis fail all over the world, some of us like to wear a judging hat, and judge other people over what ‘they’ think is right.

      In iPhone there is different way. You have to go to the cellular settings from there you can choose WCDMA, UMTS or HSPA.

      • hamza

      Can we subscribe these offers?

      • Truth

        not sure…I just viewed their info

        • ampmvp

          Where did you find these?

          • Truth

            Just dial *3# from your mobile phone

              • Truth

                Yup currently not working on my phone also… Looks like ufone took it out after knowing it from here:)…. also my previous posts posted here regarding bucket details have been deleted….

                • ampmvp

                  Those are really bad packages. They should be ashamed. =P

  • Truth

    For Uhypersonic – upto 1Mbps

    • Ali

      Why restrict it to 1Mbps

  • Truth

    For Usupersonic upto 512kbps

  • Truth

    For Uhighspeed upto 256kbps

  • Truth

    For Uhighspeed upto 256kbps…continued

  • Truth

    256kbps ….

  • ampmvp

    If these are the data speeds Ufone is offering that’s pretty disappointing. I’m going to have to switch my network to Zong or Mobilink. A download cap would be better than the speeds offered.

    • Ali

      I agree. If these offers actully go commercial thats very disappointing in terms of speed.

      • ampmvp

        Exactly. It’s also weird how Ufone isn’t being trialled anywhere. I expected much more from them. Ufone has a lot of the Islamabad/Rawalpindi market. They’re going to lose a lot of customers and especially the corporate clients.

  • Zaheer Abbasi

    Not so much expensive but speed should be atleast 3 mbs.

  • Bashir Ahmed Zeeshan

    Getting 1.12mbps on 3G at Boat Basin, Clifton, #Karachi during testing.
    Lets see what speed will be available after commercial launch?

  • Truth

    Well judging from Ufone’s 3G buckets, it’s definitely not an alternative to ptcl evo….the 3GB data limit is not enough if u want to use it in place of evo

  • Waleed

    For telenor users you can check 3G availability in your area by dialling *7799# then they will send u the status in sms
    And for iPhone users (iOS 7) if you can’t see the 3G button in settings> cellular
    You will have to install iR0se Patch
    rose with “zero” in it
    Just google for how to install irose patch (there are tutorials for jailbroken and also non-jailbroken iPhones)
    Then once u get the app iR0se in iPhone you can easily open the app and tap on “force 3G” so your 3G will be turned on if available in your area ! Best of luck
    PS: i am ufone user, and ofc. still don’t have 3G available in chichawatni city. :(
