    Hi All,

    I purchased a Pre 2 recently and I'm generally happy with it, one thing I found is that the internet is slow. I took my phone into my Telco provider and found the issue to be with my phone.

    I live in Perth, Australia and as far as I know there hasn't been any webos phones released in Australia.

    I was googling the problem today, I found 2 solutions, one was to edit the file "CarrierNetworkSettings.db3" which doesn't seem to exist on webos 2.2.4 or edit the file carrierdb.json (which does exist).

    Assuming modifying the carrierdb.json is the right approach, the website below advises on how to edit the file.

    HOWTO: Edit your carrierdb.json file

    The settings fall under 2 categories, Main carrier DB entry and Data connection.

    Below is an example for setting up an android phone, which I assume is similar

    It should work out of the box if it the appropriate device. Which Pre 2 do you have?

    Hi,

    Model - P102UNA
    Hardware version A

    According to Oz Broadband website my bandwidth is;
    line speed of 183 kbps
    download speed 23KB/s

    Optus won't help because it's not a supported phone.

    There's your problem. You have a (North American) phone that will give you 3G with Telstra or Vodaphone. 850Mhz band. The EU model would work with Optus.

    Thanks so much, I might take my phone to a Vodaphone center and have it tested, would it be the same case with the Pre 3 ?

    Edit

    I think I worked it out,

    My phone (N.A version) is uses the HSDPA 850 / 1900 frequencies (according to GSM arena), and Optus uses a 2100MHz frequency for 3G and 1900MHz for 2G. That would explain my slow speeds, it's because I'm utilising the 1900MHz 2G network and am unable to utilise the 2100MHz frequency.

    ^ That's it. Same for the Pre 3

    Vodaphone have just recently setup a network of 850Mhz towers, giving capital city metropolitan coverage.

    AT&T Pre3 works 3G on Optus (at least in Melbourne), as does EU Pre3.
    Palm IIIe -> SL-10 -> NX80 -> UX-50 -> TH-55 -> Treo 600 -> Treo 650 -> Centro -> Pre (Movistar) -> Pre 2 (GSM-US) -> Pre 3 (EU-GSM) -> Pre 3 (AT&T) + TP 32Gb

    That doesn't sound right re the AT&T one. They are two different beasts

    I have both, both work on Optus 3G in Melbourne
    The AT&T has 4 bands for 4G in US. I can't recall the bands, but definitely works 3G on Optus.
    My Pre2 (AT&T) was only 2G in Melbourne.

    The AT&T Pre3 has the NA frequencies (850/1900) as well as one non-NA frequency (2100). Therefore it does support the upper band in Europe and Australia so it should work fine on most Australian carriers, especially those using 850 and 2100.

    The European Pre3 has 900/1900/2100 (1900 is to enable roaming in the US/Canada on the upper frequencies which are deployed in metropolitan areas) which means it should work really well in Australia.

    But keep in mind the EU Pre3 has half the storage - unless you buy both the EU and NA Pre3s and have webOS Internals swap the storage chips (which they did in the past, not 100% sure they'll still do that).
