Might make it a bit easier to remember...
If you're using CM, there's a toggle in the power widget for 3G only (makes it easier to switch back to Edge, if you're getting crappy coverage)

Doesn't seems to stick to WCDMA only, it keep reverting back to WCDMA prefer.
Would this procedure work for AT&T too? If not, anyone know how to accomplish this on AT&T? I'm in a pretty strong 3G coverage area, but my phone stays on Edge all the time. It's a 2.2.1 version, Cyanogen Mod 6.1.0
Hoo-boy! That means, unless I sell this phone and buy a at&t N1, no chance of ever getting 3G atall? Grim prospect!Oxente originally posted: I am on AT&T, but followed these instructions, and succeeded in shutting off Edge in favor of "WCDMA only." Strange result! Was informed that there was "no service" on 3G. Why, since my wife's 3G iPhone gets great reception? Why would my N1 not get 3G?
Dude Random21 replied: Well chances are that you have a t-mo version of the phone and are on at&t so you need the other version so that you can make it work on 3g or else you get stuck with EDGE. Because the frequencies are not right to make it work on at&t 3G.

Well not necessarily but that is what it sounds like to me so there is a way to know you check behind the battery on your N1 and then check there should be a model number something like PP100xxxx I can't remember exactly and don't really feel like removing the battery from myN1 right now. But check that number than Google it with at&t or t-mo version and you should find which one you have if it is true that you have the wrong version you could sell or trade it in the off topic section of this forum if you want to.
