    Hahahahaha ... not sure why you went for CMCC 3G, since it is not supported else where other than China ... and to the best of my knowledge, China Unicom does have a better 3G network ...

    What do you mean by "activate"?

    Hahahahaha ... who said that 3G is not supported by CMCC?

    If you meant me, I only said that the CMCC 3G technology, technically known as TD SCDMA, is not supported outside China because it is home-grown but not an international standard, but if you are using it within CMCC coverage (i.e. China, maybe even Hong Kong?), then it "should" work fine with other 3G networks in China and internationally ...

    Having said that, I have also heard that it is not a very good network, and China Unicom is better than CMCC in 3G ...

    PS. I am not a huge fan of CMCC, nor a CMCC 3G subscriber, I am just telling what I heard/read ...
