First you need to determin if your provider offers 3G service in the location that you are trying to access it. Give them a call!

It is recommended that you set the phone to automaticly switch to the fastest available network. To do this go to OPTIONS > NETWORKS AND CONNECTIONS > MOBILE NETWORK and then ensure that Network Mode is set to '3G & 2G' then press the return arrow key to save the changes.

Hope this helps.

Also make sure the device your using is capable of 3G in the correct Band / Frequency range. Not all networks use the same band across the world.
