Have you configured APN Settings under network->Cellular data?

Normally carrier pushes these settings automatically, but if not, they should be able to configure the same (APN Name, Username, Password.

Usually username and password is left empty.

Let me know how it goes.

It would help to know your carrier and country.

SOURCE: Is the Iphone data plan mandatory?

Try going into your phone shop and asking them if they can upgrade it for a good price rather than buying a new one that has the internet. If they dont then maybe buy a cheaper phone that has internet or keeping ur phone and seeing if they have any wireless plug ins to plug into ur phone to have the internet. Otherwise you may have to buy the newer phone. Hope that this is helpful to u!

Have you purchased / subscribed to DATA plan from your telco/phone company ?

You phone supports GSM / HSPA / LTE
Perform all APP install /update/ over Wifi

Using ths phone current w/o data service


Hi Alan.

The phone should still be partly usable:
  1. If you have access to WiFi, turn on the phone WiFi and you should be able to get online and use the majority of data / app services on the phone.
  2. Depending on the carrier, you may be listed as 'no data plan', and just charged ad-hoc rates for data use - i.e. you would still have data access, but without a rate plan, the carrier will just charge you according to it's billing structure - for instance I know AT&T adds 1GB chunks on, at $10/Gb, on my sister's iPhone plan, when she exceeds her monthly limit.
  3. Use of the phone for voice and/or messaging will depend on whether, in saying you don't have data service, if that also means you don't have a plan at all, or just lack a data plan. The phone part should work fine even with no data service, so long as you're in a coverage area. Texting and cost will depend again on how your carrier handles it. Most will allow it and charge you a bunch for each message in or out. Pure profit for them.
  4. If you have no connection at all, you can likely still use the phone on WiFi, and might be able to boot-strap to voice with apps like Skype, and messaging with apps like WhatsApp. (I don't have affiliation with any of those companies, so they are single examples out of many options
Hoping that gives you a clearer picture of your options.
Happy Holidays!

How do i get wireless internet on my phone


Pls define the phone Brand/model.
In general, there are 2 means of "wireless internet:
a) Through DATA plan of your mobile provider
b) Through Wifi

Let's see how to reach these 2:
a)
Data plan means that you can get DATA through your mobile connection. So you need to check your contract or ask your mobile provider if you already DO HAVE a DATA PLAN activated. If not, pls do so.
You also need to make the needed settings change in the phone (set APN,e.t.c.) based on the instructions by your mobile provider.
Take into account that in general a DATA PLAN costs much more than a LANDLINE internet connection (e.g. a DSL connection) that you could have from your home, so it's OK for mail and faceboko browsing but perhaps too expensive to download movies, games, e.t.c.

b)
Wifi is a wireless local area network. It can be password_protected or Open. Usually cafeterias and other shops or central squares offer Open Wifi for everyone to connect to.
Also, when one has a Landline DSL connection, there is a Wireless router installed, giving the possibility to connect to this DSL wireless (with WiFi).
So you could even connect to your neighbor's wifi if that is Open.


Pls rate this solution.
Many thnx.

I bought a Nokia E71 Saturday and everything works, including the WIFI, except I am unable to connect to internet going down the hiway or anywhere away from a WIFI connection.


If you don't have a WIFI connection then you don't have internet. The only way to have internet without wifi is with a data plan from you provider.

How do i connect my k770i to the web


Make sure that your phone has an enterprise data plan or unlimited data plan. These plans have internet access included. If you have this kind of plan, all you have to do is to locate and open your phone's internet browser, and you should be able to access the web.

But if you're planning to connect the phone to a hot spot, it's not possible, because this phone does not have a WiFi adapter installed.

Thank you and good luck!

Just bought a blackberry today and it wont let me on the internet, it says something about Wi-Fi connection. What do i do?


BlackBerries have different browsing profiles. Most likely your default is set to WiFi or HotSpot browser. Also, if you don't have a data plan with your carrier that might explain it. Without a data plan these phones can only connect through WiFi. Try going into the browser, selecting options and making sure that the default browser is Internet Browser.
