    I have a DVP and am using it on T-mobile.

    Depending where I am the upper left letter next to the signal strength indicator will display:

    E = Edge ?
    G = 3G ?
    H = ???

    What is H?

    And am I correct with E & G.

    While not having a DVP, my Titan shows H for 'High' speed meaning 3.5G here in the UK

    Any other time it shows 3G

    Perhaps it's the same ?

    Oh and welcome along to WPCentral kmo98. :)

    The DVP Manual says...

    3G (H) Connected to a 3G (HSPA) data network

    H=HSPA or 3G

    That's the way I understand it to be.

    According to Microsoft's Windows Phone help pages:

    G = GPRS
    E = EDGE
    3G = 3G

    That page also explains the other icons that may also appear in the status bar.

    The highest I seen my DVP indicate is 3G. If I am in a building sometimes it will go to E. When I am on 3G my speedtests vary sometimes I might see 1.5 up and 3 down or 680kbps up and 5.5 m down.

    It changes because the carriers / manufacturers can change the symbols that are displayed up there. For example, my Samsung Focus on Rogers shows 3G+ by default instead of an H. It still means HSDPA, but the text is different.

    (If you know what you're doing, you can also change them yourself they're just registry keys located at Local Machine\Software\Microsoft\Connectivity\CellularUx)
