How come i cant get somethings on the internet on my phone?


Hi there,
It's important to understand how you can have data connection to your phone so as to access internet e.t.c.

Basics:
1. Access through the Network:
Mobile Providers (Vodafone, e.t.c.) provide data access to the users on request (or by default in some cases). This data access is through the NETWORK of the mobile operator and uses 2G, 3G, GPRS, EDGE protocols to access the network.
2. Access through WiFi or WAN:
A smartphone can access internet using the WiFi or WAN protocol (wireless lan). In order to connect to the WiFi network you need capability from your phone and also to find an Access Point of Wifi (AP) to connect to. WiFi networks are FREE or PAID. You can find free networks usually in central squares, caffee's e.t.c. Also, some providers (Vodafone, e.t.c.) provide WiFi APs and you can use prepaid cards or fixed contracts in order to access them.

SGH G600
Unfortunately your phone DOES NOT support the WiFi protocol, so you can only access internet through the 1st option.
In order to do that, we need that your operator allows the DATA traffic for you and we also need to setup your phone in order to accept/send DATA.

How to do it.
1. Mobile operator settings: Pls call your mobile operator and ask them if your number has DATA allowed (DATA plan, or DATA connectivity). If so, you are OK. If not, pls check the price rates (per MB or per usage time) and -if it's within your budget- ask them to activate DATA to your phone.
2. Phone settings: Your phone has the following symbols that indicate Data connection:
z+1hzaqrlnqwwvwdfr1lzkykn1b8bkb4taelpwbtemaaaaaelftksuqmcc GPRS signal
l6ehksvkldgdezebnabnyzrvbdahxgoi73e0f3iim39j5lejkcqpinnueqzqeddx6a9xkznrlwbw7botcnfduu4c6ywjywlty5geilyaqw6jizfmxaaaaabjru5erkjggg== EDGE signal
In order to setup the Data connection there are the following configuration options in your phone:
1. Menu -> Setup Wizard. Setup wizard can setup your phone for various tasks. Try it.
2. Menu -> Browser Settings. You can select the connection profile to be used for DATA.
take into account that in order to setup a DATA connection you need to setup the AP of the GPRS/EDGE as well (usually something like internet.vodafone.com)

...BUT the easiest solution your you is to call your provider, give your number and phone model/type and ask them to send you an automated message that has all the needed settings for your phone so as to have access to DATA.

You click on the message send and all needed settings are OK.
You can now access internet!







If above solution was helpful, pls rate it.
Thnx.

Browsing on Mobile


to access internet from the k550i you have to have an active GPRS account

You should have the provision of GPRS from the service provider.
Once you activate GPRS from the provider... there will be a settings message that will be sent to you by the provider.. or you can take the settings from websites of the providers. like vodofone.com etc.

once you set your GPRS settings to the service provider's specification, you can connect to the internet thru GPRS / EDGE phone.

For setting the GPRS specifications manually you have to create a new "internet profile" in the "connectivity" in your phone menu... and change name, port, gateway...etc all these will be provided by the service provider in its site or will be sent as a message after GPRS activation.

Automatically logging onto internet


I'm not sure if you are using GPRS, EDGE, EV-DO, etc....

this is how you do it with GPRS

REG HACK - Turn off GPRS totally (and back to working state) without going to settings

1: You need a Registry editor ( eg. Resco Explorer... there are freeware registry editors too )
2: Find the registry key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\ConnMgr\Providers\{7C4B7A38-5FF7-4bc1-80F6-5DA7870BB1AA}\Connections\
3: under that , you should see you GPRS settings , for example , mine 's OPTUS GPRS Internet , OPTUS GPRS MMS etc , pick the right one and export it to the *.REG file, and name it to something like " GPRS ON.reg "
4: Modify the setting inside ( for example OPTUS GPRS Internet ) , and change the Enabled value from 1 to 0, then export it to GPRS OFF.reg

use the GPRS ON /OFF .reg to toggle between GPRS always off and on when required.

Happy Registry editing

NOKIA 6270 - Airtel GPRS


your nokia 6270 is EDGE enabled phone, that means you must get speed like 100 kbps with airtel gprs[mobile office].but you are getting too low speed its beacause of network there is not EDGE enabled till date, you have to wait for that when they upgrade their network services. so with normal gprs you obviously get slow speed its about 3-4 kbps only. so the thing is you cant do anything other than waiting for service upgradation or change your network with other service provider who provides EDGE enabled network.
