SOURCE: Unable to Connect to WI-FI with my Samsung Galaxy

I just had this same problem - I suspect it may have been a new app I installed that changed some settings.
I fixed mine by going into Settings>Mobile Network settings, then tick "Use packet data". Worth a try.

Hello!
If you would like to be able to use basic phone functions like SMS and Calls in a different country:
Be sure you have enough credits to call and SMS while roaming.

  • If you're using the same SIM card to text in the US, be sure that you have enough credits for it to do so.
Turn on your roaming before you go to the US.
  • You can ask your local carrier how to do so. Check their site, call customer support, etc.

Check if your Galaxy S is not in Airplane Mode
  • Check your notification bar at the top. If you see an airplane icon there, you're in Airplane mode and you're not receiving any mobile signal at all.
  • If this is the case, just hold your lock button for at least 1 second and a menu will appear with the options "Silent Mode, Flight Mode, Power Off." Click "Flight Mode" and your phone should have cellular signal in no time.
Check if you're connected to a Carrier and your phone is not searching for one.
  • You'll know if you're connected to a network if you have a carrier's name (i.e. Verizon) on your notification drawer (you know, the thing you pull down from the top of the screen?). If not, go to Settings > Wireless and Network > Mobile Networks > Network Operators then choose your carrier of choice.
Buy a Prepaid SIM in the US.
  • This could be a last resort, but, yes, you should be able to buy a SIM card in the US for you to use. Probably you can find them in the airport.

Feel free to ask me if you have any queries! :) ~azukibean70

Wi-fi has been known to eat up the battery life on ALL devices it's on.
That's just the way it functions.
If you really want to save battery on your phone, disable wireless, bluetooth and 4G connections you may have, dim the screen to it's lowest setting and change the display timeout to a very low time.

I have T-Mobile 4g galaxy avant android phone. I do not have coverage n my ares 4 the Internet. Cam I hook WI-FI up 2 my desk top and accessories the inn tenet via my home wi-fi


You can get WI-FI anywhere WI-FI is available with a smart phone.
But if you only have a modem at home and an ethernet cable from the modem to your computer to get internet, then you may not have WI-FI at home.
You'll need to get a wireless router to have WI-FI at home.
Once you do that, you can continue to have your desktop hooked up by the ethernet cable, but you can also install a WI-FI adapter card in your desktop. It will have an antenna on the back of your computer and then you can set it up anywhere in your house and have internet without an ethernet cable.

I cant get an internet connection on this phone, do i need to set it up manually?


Hi,

There are two ways you can connect to the internet over your phone. You can purchase a data plan from a company like AT&T which you can use anywhere. The other option would be to use your phone to connect to a wireless access point(WI-FI).

What are the differences? Wi-fi is usually free unless at a cofee shop etc but has a smaller area in which you can access(you have to be within a certain distance of the wireless router). A data plan cost money and is typically slower, however, you can use it at anytime as long as you have a signal on your phone.

You can click here to access the user guide for your phone.

If you have a data plan purchased and are using the SIM card they gave you then whenever you use a application on your phone that requires internet access it will connect.

If you go to page 83 of the manual it will go over the steps you need to take to enable Wi-Fi. In short, first active Wi-Fi
1) In Idle mode, open the application list and select Settings
? Wireless and network ? Wi-Fi settings ? Wi-Fi.
1) Then under Wi-Fi settings click Wi-Fi networks, select the Network you wish to connect to then click Connect.

Reference the user manual as it goes into more details about the features on your phone and how to use them.

Regards,

Galaxy samsung phone. He can't find wi-fi


He should read the manaul or call his cell phone provider's tech support.
If he still can't find wi-fi the wi-fi is turned off or hidden which can be corrected by the person who manages the wi-fi acces point.
I hope this helps him.

Wi-fi


You probably called their customer support or billing, which know nothing about technical stuff.

Wi-fi is completely independent from the cellular network, so it will not charge you anything. Wi-fi just connects to a wireless router, like the one in your home, if you have one. In other words it connects to the internet via someones home/office internet connection. I have a touch diamond and dont have a data plan, and only use wifi, works great..BUT:

If you do not have a data plan (pay as you go data) with Bell, IMMEDIATELY get a 'data block' on your phone, at first they might say oh it will not let you use some functions, etc, put insist, persist, and use force if neccesary as they dont like giving you a data block..It costs about $50 per mb if you use the pay per use internet! I think that was the 1X, but im not sure, its ridiculously high!

Wi-fi


No, wifi is completely seperate from the cellular network. It will not cost you anything, but will depend on whether or not there are wireless routers/networks near you and if they are secured (with a password) or not. Wi-Fi is basically a home/office internet connection, just wireless.

For example, all starbucks has 'wi-fi'.

If you don't have a data plan for your phone, get a data block immediately from Bell. They dont like giving data blocks, and they say some functions wont work but they mean stuff that connects to the internet, which will cost you if you wifi isn't connected since it defaults to the cellular providers internet. It cost be about $12 for less than half a MB of usage. Their rate per MB is more than $50, im not kidding.. just checked my bill. If you just got the phone you can get the charges reversed just say you didn't know it would connect to the cellular web and that it cost so much etc etc. They should be lenient if you just got the phone etc...
