    Hi
    Whenever I switch the 3G option on, the reception of the phone goes down to about 1-2 bars. As soon as I turn it off, the reception is full.

    Also, can you receive phone calls with 3G turned on?

    You can do everything with 3G turned on.. the only thing 3G affects is ur internet and web apps.

    if 3G is on and you have 3G reception it will use 3G/HSDPA for calls and internet access etc.

    if you turn it off it will use GPRS/Edge for calls / internet access

    its either / or.

    unless you have 3G on and lose 3G connection it will drop back to GPRS/Edge.
