Detect if connection is wifi, 3G or EDGE in android?-ThrowExceptions

Exception or error:

I need to detect in android if there is any connection Wifi or 3G ( or 3G+) or EDGE in android. When there is an connection wifi or 3G I can send photos to server, and when is only a connection EDGE to not send them to server.

I saw that wifi connectivity can be detected with ConnectivityManager.TYPE_WIFI and with ConnectivityManager.TYPE_MOBILE and TelephonyManager.NETWORK_TYPE_EDGE can be detected EDGE connection. But how can be detected 3G or 3G+?

How to solve:

First get a reference to the ConnectivityManager and then check the Wifi and 3G status of the device.
You’ll need the ACCESS_NETWORK_STATE permission to use this service.

    ConnectivityManager connManager = (ConnectivityManager) getSystemService(CONNECTIVITY_SERVICE);
    NetworkInfo mWifi = connManager.getNetworkInfo(ConnectivityManager.TYPE_WIFI);
    NetworkInfo mMobile = connManager.getNetworkInfo(ConnectivityManager.TYPE_MOBILE);

    if (mWifi.isAvailable() == true) {
        return "Connected to WiFi";
    } else if (mMobile.isAvailable() == true) {
        return "Connected to Mobile Network";
    } else return "No internet Connection"
