    It is most definitely a 3G phone, or to be more exact a triband GSM/GPRS/EDGE phone + a 3G WCDMA phone. On some operator specific phone software (firmware) versions the selection of GSM vs. GSM+WCDMA ("dual mode") has been disabled (upon the request of the operator). It is still a 3G phone, and presumably fixed for the dual mode setting, too. In other words, it will use 3G when it detects a 3G network and otherwise fall back to GSM.

    In the latest software it is possible to change manually between GSM and 3G. Earlier that was not possible, and then you needed a 3G SIM to get the phone to work, but know it is also possible to have a "normal" SIM in the phone if you change that setting.

    Contact nearest servicepoint and they fix the upgrade for you :-)
