How do I connect to the internet if my phone is unlocked? It is asking for a ISP phone number, but I have wireless internet that isn't dial-up. Can anyone suggest what I can or should do?

The first thing to do is make sure that the wireless router allows for the same Network Autentication. Depending on your wireless router you might have to check your user manual, but the trick here is to set the autentication "WPA-TKIP" on your wireless router, then set a custom key for for acces, once that is done, open the Wireless Manager by taping on the little blue anterna next to the bluetooth manager, is on the bottom right corner of your device, chek the "on" box, on the same screen tap once on the "Tools" menu, bottom left of the screen, next tap on  "Network Cards" there you should be able to see the network you want to access, if not, add the name of the network you just changed a few moments ago, if you don;t know the name of the network, go back to you'r wireless router set-up page, and change the pre-set name to something you remember, next select the "Connects to: internet" option", next tap on "Network key" tab at the bottom of the screen, set the Autentication: "WAP-PSK" and Data Encryption to  "TKIP", and finally input the custom network key you created earlier on the router set-up page.
Note: as far as I know there is a diference of the level of secitity the the 2 diferent data encryption type provide, and i think WPA is Older and most new wireless routers have WEP, or WEP 2, but if you live in a residential neiborghood and your router range is say 200 feet you only have to worry about ur immediate neigbors craking the network key using high tech sofware, to get to use ur wireless signal.

Thanks for visiting FixYa!

What most people don't know about 'Unlocked' phones is that they may be 'unlocked' to use a different SIM card for calling but they are still programmed to the Internet Gateway of the original cellular company who sold the phone.

So, you'll need to re-program the phone's Data connections to access the Internet through Consumer Cellular's Gateway.

Contact Consumer Cellular's Customer Support Dept., and ask for Tech Support assistance. They can assist you in reprogramming your phone to work on their system.

Wont connect to internet says failed it was a vodafone lgku990i i need it to go on tesco internet


As far as I can tell, Your phone is from vodafone and you are trying to connect it to a different carrier's internet. If this phone is unlocked, you need to input the correct WAP/Mobile internet settings for your current carrier.
If this phone is not unlocked and cannot access the internet of your current carrier, Phone your provider and ask them to push OTA settings to your phone.

I want to connect internet by my mobile nokia 5130 c pls help.


In order to connect internet to a PC through your mobile you will have to subscribe for 3G/GPRS/EDGE from your SIM provider. If you have the service subscribed at present, install Nokia PC Suit in your PC and connect the handset with USB cable or Bluetooth and In PC Suit there is an option "Connect To Internet" Click on it and with your ISP provided configuration [User ID : Password], (if any) you can access the internet after connected successfully.

That's all.

Thanks for joining us.

Have a nice day.

Can't connect to the internet


Not necessarily; however, if you phone is REALLY unlocked (I have personally gotten phones that were supposed to be UNLOCKED that weren't from EBAY, so caveat emptor....

What's really cool about TMobile is that they have an automatic configurator for A LOT of different phones. The LG Vu happens to be one of those:

http://tmobileuspublic.wdsglobal.com/internet?phoneId=2192&countryId=37&bearerId=5&networkId=90&contractId=235&captchaEnabled=true&manufacturerId=13&step=isp.vm&ispId=577

Click on this link and submit the security code (so it knows your not a bot) and your mobile number. Tmobile will give you an SMS with the internet config information, that will configure your phone automatically.

Give this a try,
Bill

Your phone needs to be unlocked to use the text option. The code it is asking for is the unlock code.

All of the main sidekick features like internet, aim and email won't be available if unlocked and used on a carrier other than t-mobile.

text and calling will once unlocked though.

Sx66 to tmobile


As I understand it, the SIM card is what tells your wireless unit which service provider to use. If you have an old phone, it should be an easy matter to take the t-mobile SIM card out of it and install it in the SX-66. One note on the SX-66: the SIM card on mine had a tendency to lose contact (and my contacts would disappear) from jarring until I put a piece of scotch tape across the bottom of it. No problems after that.

IPhone EDGE issue


Access to edge or other data services depend on the isp, not the cell phone manufacturer. For example, if you unlocked your phone and put a tmobile sim in it, you would have to get data settings from tmobile to be able to get the internet. You need to talk to the tech support people. And of course you can use the wifi on the apple phone for internet access.
