During data sessions and when idle my phone has and 'H' when on a call or sending a text it changes to 3G. What's the difference, if any?

It stands for HSPA. Do you have an Android or Windows Mobile device?

It usually means you are connected to a cell site that may only be at UMTS speeds if it just says 3G. If it says H you are connected at around 1.8 - 7.2 mbps theoretical.

Depending on what phone it is, 3G just may mean that your phone is 3G available but not using data, and H refers to using data.
