T3 transfer to T2

I have an international flight landing at T3 and taking another international flight in T2. I have 2 hours between flights and it will be on a Saturday 0700-0900. Is this enough time or should I change the flights? Do you have to go through customs and immigration at T3 to get into T2? I know I will have to go through a security check between the terminals.

One ticket? Maybe.

Two tickets? Oh dear.

Is the reservation on one ticket with luggage checked to your final destination?

Assuming your flights are on the same ticket, all you do is follow the signs for "Flight Connections" and you will be directed to Terminal 2 (not sure if it's a shuttle bus from T3 or you just walk it but the staff there will tell you). At some stage there will be a security check. Then you are straight into Terminal 2 departures so just proceed to your gate. That's it, no immigration or customs as you aren't really "entering" the UK.

Re post #4, surely you would not be able to walk airside due to security reasons.
