AnonD-314847, 23 Oct 2014Don't know ,but my 3g is capped @ max45kbps please help Tr... moreZenFone 5 supports up to 42 mbps 3G however in reality the speed reaches about 10 mbps on a good operator with excellent signal.

It is possible that your operator only uses some 3G data standards, or that the frequency used by operator for 3G is unsupported by Zenfone.

The phone can definitely get up to 25 mbps down link and about 6 mbps uplink (850/2100 MHz) at 2 in the morning when I tested it. Over the day my usual speed on it is about 5-8 mbps down, 3-5 mbps up.

That's considerably more than you get, so I don't think this is phone problem.

Last bit - only SIM 1 can be used for 3G. SIM 2 is limited to 2G (EDGE). So you should always use SIM 1 for data if you're after speed.

I downloaded the update V 2.19.40.18 yesterday and could not connect to the network. I guess it deleted the APN and now I am not able to go into the option APN. If I try to do, it pushes me out stating "Unfortunately, settings has stopped". Do I need to download any other updates to fix this issue? Can I uninstall the latest downloaded firmware? Help please. Thanks

MUNEER, 23 Oct 2014is there the option to use otg cable to connect our pendriveYes, you can use say Samsung or HTC OTG cable and plug in the thumbdrive into it at the other side.

Or you can get OTG USB stick which already has micro-USB connector.

Pressing power+volume down should always bring you into boot menu, as that's hardware function of the phone, regardless of what's loaded on it.

But you must power off the phone, and press both buttons at the same time, then continue holding them until logo shows. Then use volume up/down to move between menu options, and power button to confirm.
