Is 3g supposed to allow you to acces the internet when you don't have a wifi connection because when i tried it said safari cant open the page because its not connected to the internet, thanks

3g is the speed. its faster then just normal edge. you should be able to access the internet probbly wherever you are at. edge will kick in if 3g isn't available.

Yes it is. I have gotten that error a couple of times. Sometimes there could be a problem with a tower that will not allow you to access data. Try turning your phone off and on. It might help.

Most likely there is a problem with AT&T in your area. Give it some time to see if it gets fixed, if not call AT&T and let them know.
