You can also connect your phone to a computer, totransfer files from your phone’s SD card, and share your phone’s mobile dataconnection via USB or as a portable Wi-Fi hotspot.9.1 Connecting to mobile networksWhen you assemble your phone with a SIM card from your wireless service provider,your phone is configured to use your provider’s mobile networks for voice calls andfor transmitting data. (Refer to your phone’s owner’s guide and your carrier formore information.)Your phone is configured to work with many mobile carriers’ networks. If yourphone does not connect to a network when you insert a SIM card and turn it on,contact your carrier to obtain the details of its access point name.Different locations may have different mobile networks available. Initially, your phoneis configured to use the fastest mobile network available for data. But you canconfigure your phone to use only a slower 2G network for data, to extend the life ofyour battery between charges. You can also configure your phone to access adifferent set of networks entirely, or to behave in special ways when roaming.The icons in the Status bar indicate which kind of data network you’re connected toand the voice and data network signal strength.
