Re: wildfire s 2 g and 3 g what is this?

Its not a silly question, in very basic terms

 

2G signal provides calls, texts etc

3G provides high speed internet

 

Your phone is a 3G phone so should be fine with a 3G signal, but if you are having signal issues, you might have been asked or have options on your phone to turn it to 2G only to eliminate an issue.  Most phones do this automatically 

 

Is there an issue you are having which causes you to ask ?

No the feeling well, you can get them on various sides, ebay sells millions of stylus type products which would fit the job

A friend of mine who also has a wildfire  s says because it is a capactive screen you can only use your fingers ,

Is he wrong?

could be right to be honest, never really thought it through like that, best to research or speak to htc to confirm

Hi there aiden,

 

Thanks for your post.

 

H is the abbreviation for HSDPA which should provide a faster browsing experience compared with 3G.

 

Cheers,
