    Hello Steve and welcome to the forum! Your question about 2G vs 3G is dependent on what your carrier offers. I'm not familiar with Union Wireless, but do you know if they are a CDMA carrier or, like AT&T and T-Mobile in the US, are a GSM carrier? Do you have a SIM card? I'm not talking about an SD card to hold data, a SIM card is what you use to connect to the carrier for phone service. I'm guessing it's GSM, because their web site seems to have connections to AT&T. If they do offer 3G, you're probably better off simply changing your plan and paying extra for the 3G service. It's simpler in the long run and will allow you to get the most out of your phone.

    Yes it has a sim card. I live in wyoming. I think the company is just based there. I aint sure. I asked the company about it. They say im only getting 2.4g or somthing like that. It would cost 100 bucks just to get 3g. If its even possible i would love to just bypass the buying part and get it free lol.

    I can't think of a legal way to accomplish that goal. What's your objection to paying for the service?

    Well this forum does NOT assist in efforts to steal service from one of the carriers, so you'll have to look elsewhere for what you want.
