    I know that.... The problem is most of the places in India does have very weak signal of 3g that's why the connection will automatically switch between 2g and 3g.... If I could select 3g only mode like android it will be easy to stay on 3g....

    The phone will try the highest connection speed first, and if it can't get a stable enough connection, it'll drop it down, usually via EDGE before hitting 2G. You can't set it to stay at 3G/4G.

    Have to just live with it :\ The phone constantly switches between 2G /3G and most of the times stuck to 2G when 3G is really needed. Like while using Cortana, Skype etc. Seriously Microsoft needs to address this small yet an Important feature. It's useless using a Lumia with an EDGE connection. Sometimes really frustrates me, when i click an amazing picture with my Lumia and when my friends ask me to do a check in, Im like, sorry, Im on 2G(Same carrier though)

    I am also using new phone. If its brick ur phone, nokia service centre won't find out which firmware u had. And if it don't, u can use Vietnam firmware with ease. Btw don't worry and flash it.

    Nope, but I guess I need to use both of them to have my firmware changed? How safe is it btw? Will it brick my phone in event of any miss?

    Don't worry it won't brick your phone. If you are from India, give me your email id. I will give you my contact no. And will tell you whole procedure. I have flashed my phone many times with Vietnam, Belgium and indian firmware. No problem at all. And yes you need both of them to flash your phone. Navifirm to download firmware and nokia care suite to flash it.
