    Because you are now connected to a 4G tower on a capable phone. It does not guarantee your speeds are 4G, but probably....

    Its 3.5g. HSPA+ faster than 3G but slower than LTE

    Default H+?

    High speed packet access.

    It is basically 3G with a speed boost.
    Capable of low 4G speeds while still using current 3G tech.
    That's why some call it 3.5G and some company's call it 4G.

    Default H+?

    If you use an OS other than the one released from your carrier, you will find different designations. Some use H+ while others will show 4G. Either way, it is the same speed and is not real 4G LTE. A nice bump up from straight 3g, but nothing like the speed you will get on a Z10.

    Here is a very short and good article on the differences between H+/3G/4G and what the LTE means. Hope this helps everyone understand a little better.

    All 9810s don't support 4G only the AT&T and t-mobile(maybe, not sure abhis one) support 4G

    Like devices bought in india, do not have a 4G antena only! Limited to 3G

    I'm using the .861 from digicel... And I'm on Vodafone at Portugal...
    I know it isn't a 4G device but only 3.5G.. Anyway it should appear as H+.. Unless it's running as 3.5G and my carrier doesn't have a specific logo for it..
    I've seen some screens of other 9810 devices and many of them appears as H+.. Maybe I'll try a US firmware...

    Hmm go to about deice versions in options > device

    If it states Blackberry Torch 9810( 3G, Wifi) then your phone doesn't support H+! whatever firmware you use, won't make a difference
