    Hi there. I have a ZTE Open phone.

    Since I downloaded the last OS update, I have the mysterious letters 'H' and 'E' appearing in the Notifications bottom bar between wi-fi and Bluetooth.

    What do these mean and how do they function?

    TIA

    H = HSPA+ (fastest) 3G = Yep, 3G E = Edge (2G) G = GPRS (dog-slow)
