How to enable 3G data connection on Android HTC HD2? This is the question that I asked myself when I got Android 2.2 Froyo installed on my HTC HD2. I failed to enable 3G data connection and I thought that was an issue with the Android build. However, I was wrong. 3G data connection is really working on Android HTC HD2. Thanks to Razi for letting me know the way to enable it.
