I noticed a new change to the settings of my Titan. Note that my phone is in Dutch, so my English translation might not be 100% correct.
In the past, I could go to settings\mobile network and turn 'Data connection' and '3G' on and off. After the latest update, I can only turn 'Data connection' on and off and there is a list called 'Highest connection speed' where I can either choose 'E' or '3G'.
As I have a maximum amount of data I may consume per month, I would like to be able to turn 3G off again... but how?!

If I'm not mistaken, data requires 3G so turning off data is the same as turning off 3G. However, even with data off you should still be able to make/receive phone calls and text messages."Engineering is more than just the number of megapixels." - Stephen Elop

I noticed that too XBWillem, it doesn't affect me as I have unlimited data, but it's very strange why they done away with the 3G on and Off settings.
I guess turning off data is the equivalent maybe?
I wonder why they changed it ?

The strange thing id that in the upper left corner my 3G signal strength is displayed, where it wouldn't in the past. Guess I'll find out soon enough.

EDIT: To do what you used to in previous versions, you would tap 3G and change to E, then toggle the data connection off. That would be essentially doing the same thing you used to do prior to the update.

I turned Wifi off (at home currently), had 3G on and data off, I did see the 3G next to my signal strength bar... and it didn't load a web page. So I guess the phone just lets you know 3G is selected as fastest data.
