Notification appears every few minutes suggests problem connecting to GPRS

A notification appears every few minutes saying "there is a problem connecting to the GPRS service in your registered home network". I have a restricted SIM from work so do not use the phone for internet connection etc. I only use the hotsync and blue tooth functions. Because this notification happens every few minutes the screen lights up, the buzzer sounds and the battery runs down. Can anyone suggest how I might be able to prevent this notification from occuring?

  • jasonpalm750 Dec 10, 2008

    like 2 weeks ago i called in to att to see how much is the data plan.and that i decide not to take it because it cost too much for my palm treo. well they figured that i got a new phone. so they asked for some numbers and they updated the system to the plam treo 750. ever since this conflict i can't send picture messages. i get that problem.

    - there is a problem connection to the GPRS service in your registered home network.

    - then i get a test that says error trying to make data connection. this may be casued by a voice call, a wired activesync connection or inncorrect network setting.

    please someone help me.
    btw. hard reset and soft reset did not work for me.

    a few months ago, i got the palm treo 750 from at&t. I started out with complete access to anything: internet, photos, etc. However, since then, my parents cancelled these functions. Now, every few minutes I get a message saying: there is a problem connecting to the GPRS service in your registered home network. I always tap dismiss but it always comes back up. How do I end this message from sending to my phone? Thanks in advance.

    The hard reset fixed the problem for me. It did come back however when someone tried to send me a picture. I had to do another hard reset to stop the prompt coming up.

    I have the same problem, it is soooo annoying that it keeps popping & beeping. Since I don't use the internet, and can't download media messages isn't there a setting that can block this for good?

    I have this problem as well. The battery life is horrible because the phone screen keeps coming on with the notifications. Soft and hard restart have not helped. Does anyone have any other ideas. I am about ready to go trade in my phone and quit this nonsense.

You need to tap the 3G. Settings. Connections. Advanced tab, Select Network. My ISP drop down. Edit. Tap and hold on anything that appears in the box. Delete. There should be no connections left in the box. Done. Repeat for anything in the My work Network. Edit. Should be empty. IF not, delete any connections by taping on and holding.

I fixed the problem by performing a hard reset. Since I did this the phone has not had any problem.

Add songs from internet

If you mean by downloading straight from the internet from your phone, there is an application called Amazon MP3 that allows you to purchase songs for your G1 and add them to your memory card. You have to be connected to WiFi to be able to do this though. If you want to connect it to your PC to get songs you downloaded from the internet you need the USB cable that came with the phone and connect it to your PC. On the G1 a notification will appear that says USB connected. Just open your notifications, tap on USB connected and select mount. Then your PC will detect it and allow you to view the files on the memory card. Then just copy and paste to your memory card folder.

Laptop or phone don't recognize connection

I had the same issue, however what I DID notice up on top was a USB Connected - the USB icon. I pulled that notification up and it asked me to connect. The exacts are:

1. Plug the USB cable into the computer
2. Plug the USB cable into the phone
3. The notification up top corner left will say "USB Connected" with a USB notification icon - BRIEFLY. The text "USB Connected" will quickly disappear, but the icon is still in the left corner.
4. Pull down the notification andyou'll see "USB Connected - Select to copy files to/from your computer" - Select that notification
5. Notification "USB Connected - You have connected your phone to your computer via USB. Select "Mount" if you want to copy files between your computer and your phone's SD Card." - Select the option "Mount".
6. The "Removable Disk" notification should pop up asking you what you want to do. I select "Open folder to view files".

There is a music folder in there, or whatever else you'd like.

Hope that assists.

HTC Touch Dual

Hello, In response to your email I did accept the advice which actually came though as the same message 4 times.

I already had the manual that the expert was referring to but again on re-reading it there was no solution. Ieventually I rang the helpdesk for HTC which for me was an Australian number. They knew the problems that I referred to. hey could not help on the icon 12# save to say that I should simply leave the phone on al the time. If I travel on the plane I suspect I woud have to set it to Aeoplane mode as I board.

The icon then appears when you take it out of sleep mode and unlock it.

As to the Notification and the white screen, that is apparently a problm that reates to the fact that HTC does not operate in NZ with auto connection to vodafone. It seems to indicate that the phone is automatically trying to reconnect to a network that the bios setup does not recognise. It seems to time out and then the notification disappears and the calndar word appears which is normal.

So I think I have to wait until HTC extends to NZ. Apparently there have been talks with Telecom but as I am vodafone that will not help. However with the closure of CDMA of Telecom HTC will apparently be looking at the GPRS system so I may be OK.

I appreciate your help. If there is anyone out there who can add more or knows of a solution setting I would be pleased to hear from them.
