geek_jscnz81, Nov 29, 6:59 pm

so frustrating i have tried this but still no good, my phone is froyo 2.2 when i bought it... any othe ideas please :()

geek_jscnz81, Nov 29, 7:14 pm

Do you have the 3G icon in the notification bar? Is Wifi on (Wifi takes precedence over mobile data if you are connected to a Wifi access point)? Is "Use packet data" under Mobile Network Settings checked? Try toggling flight mode if you've just set up the APN.

geek_drsr, Nov 29, 9:20 pm

mobile network should be enabled on wireless & networks menu and then you see the 3g icon on the notification bar

geek_smoothjazz, Nov 29, 9:34 pm

What smooth said, disable wifi and try then.

Get Vodafone APN stuff from Vodafone.

geek_michael.benn, Nov 29, 9:57 pm

Go here:
http://www.vodafone.co.nz/help/configure-your-mobile/ Choose HTC Tattoo, enter your phone number and they will text you the APN details. The three APNs are:
opt.vodafone.co.nz
www.vodafone.co.nz
direct.vodafone.co.nz

All work on my Samsung on 2.2

The 3 G icon doesnt appear on mt galaxy s hence no internet connection. However it connects through Wifi and also works as mobile AP/

How can i get the free setting for vodafone on galaxy pop

geek_guest, Jul 25, 6:17 am

I have a new galaxy s and it went for repair where they wiped all previous settings - when I got it back the internet wouldnt work on 3G. Solution - go to the vodafone web site and "in search" put APN - select samsung, there are several models listed. Follow the instructions ( make sure you put your cell number in right ie 6421....), then you get a text but sure your remember the secret code number, follow the text, follow the instruction entre the code, and hey preso its now works. I knew the repairer upgraded the operating software, and this was the issue for me. Hope this helps.

geek_guest, Aug 30, 9:03 am

geek_guest, Oct 6, 3:16 pm

Hi all,

I've just managed to get the internet working, without Wi-Fi, on my Samsung Galaxy Mini (Vodafone). Here're the APNs from the Vodafone site. I used the first one (Internet APN) and it worked straight away. Go to 'settings', 'wireless and networks', 'mobile networks', then 'access point names' and enter the APN name, username and password below, for either monthly or PAYG. Hope this helps someone!

Monthly

Vodafone uses a variety of different APNs (Access Point Names) to manage the point at which you connect to the 3G or GPRS networks. The APN you need depends on the service/connection that you want to use.

The settings for connecting to the Internet APN are:

APN: Internet
Username: web
Password: web

The settings for connecting to the WAP APN are:

APN: wap.vodafone.co.uk
Username: wap
Password: wap

You may also need the Access Point Name (APN) added to your account to allow you to access the internet - to arrange this please contact Customer Service.

PAYG

Vodafone uses a variety of different APNs (Access Point Names) to manage the point at which you connect to the 3G or GPRS networks. The APN you need depends on the service/connection that you want to use.

Packet data under mobile settings worked for me, thanks

geek_guest, Nov 15, 3:20 pm

hi,

i am using samsung galaxy s phone. but am not able to connect internet of my phone to pc

geek_guest, Nov 16, 11:04 pm

For Galaxy S,,

First you have to call the customer care and then ask them for sending the Internet settings. Once you get the message, open it and install/save them to your phone .

After this , Switch Off and Switch on your mobile. And Try whether the Internet connection works . If still it doesn't work, Do the next steps..

Go to Settings -> Wireless and network -> Mobile networks ->
Then select Tick mark for "Use Packet data" and "Data Roaming ".

Go to your settings >Wireless and network >> mobile network >> Network mode >> choose WCDMA Only and OK it

My phone's internet has been down for about 3 days now after I connected it to a home wifi. I did all the above and none of them worked so I decided to go lucky and try that as well and Tadaaaaa. It worked :)

Good luck
