jagadeesh says:

taking lot of time to charge and getting too hot while charging. flashed back to 2.2

Andy says:

For 3G to work, you have to re-enter your APN (Access Point Name) and settings for your mobile provider.
You can find these on the internet, or take it back to the shop where you bought it, or call customer service, and they can tell you.
Not hard to do
