Receiving pictuer messages


I have had this same problem with Straight Talk before.

First, I would call them up because it would appears that sometimes, Straight Talk does not turn on the internet/picture messaging when doing the activations and they go amiss.

If you have wi-fi in your home or, if you are in a wi-fi hotspot, I would try sending a picture when you are own your own wi-fi or in a wi-fi hotspot. To do this, make sure your "Wi-fi" is turned "On" in the settings menu on your phone.

By having the "Wif-fi" turned to the on position, you can also save on your data usage by using your own wi-fi and various hotspots so you are not eating up your own data. I'm always surprised at how many people do not know this.

So check to see that "Wi-fi" is turned on in your settings and, send a picture over your wi-fi or a hotspot wi-fi. If you are able to send a picture over your wi-fi or hotspot wi-fi then you know that it's a problem with their network and at that point, I would cal Straight Talk and tell them that you are unable to send or receive pictures.

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,

C an not buy muisic,they said, i'm not connect to the internet


Hello,

You have to ocnnect your iphone to internet first , Follow below step to connect to internet

When you use any Internet enabled application, iPhone does the following in order until connected:
  1. Connects over the last Wi-Fi network you used that's available.
  2. If no Wi-Fi networks you've used are available, shows a list of Wi-Fi networks in range. Tap a network and, if necessary, enter the password to join. Networks that require a password show ht1695_1.jpg next to them.
  3. If no Wi-Fi networks are available or you choose not to join any, iPhone connects over the cellular data network.
Note: You can be on a call and use Wi-Fi or 3G1 at the same time. Other cellular data networks are unavailable while you're on a call.
Wi-Fi
  • Wi-Fi is often faster than cellular data networks. Wi-Fi networks cover limited areas. iPhone can join AirPort and other Wi-Fi networks at home, at work, or at Wi-Fi hot spots around the world.
    When iPhone is connected to a Wi-Fi network, the Wi-Fi icon ht1695_2b.jpg in the status bar at the top of the screen shows connection strength. The more bars you see, the stronger the connection.
  • To see all the Wi-Fi networks in range, from the Home screen choose Settings > Wi-Fi. Tap a network to join it.
  • Many Wi-Fi networks can be used free of charge, and some require a fee. To join a Wi-Fi network at a hot spot where charges apply, in most cases you can open Safari to see a webpage that allows you to sign up for service.
For information about configuring Wi-Fi settings, see the "Wi-Fi" section of the iPhone User's Guide.
Note: iOS devices sold in China may use the term Wireless LAN (WLAN) instead of Wi-Fi. Not all China iPhone models support WLAN; see this article for more information.
Cellular data networks
  • Cellular data networks allow Internet connectivity over the cellular network. Check your carrier's network coverage in your area for availability.
    You can tell iPhone is connected to the Internet over a cellular data network if you see ht1695_utms_onb.png,ht1695_3b.jpg or ht1695_gprs_onb.png in the status bar at the top of the screen.
    If you're outside your carrier's network, you may be able to use a cellular data network from another carrier. Roaming charges may apply.
    Note: If not on 3G, while iPhone is actively transferring data over the cellular data network-downloading a webpage, for example-you may not be able to receive calls. Incoming calls may go to voicemail.
I hope , after this , you will be able to connect to Internet....

Thanks
Sandeep

Blackberry Bold use Wi-Fi network or mobile first


Yes, the Bold 9700 will use wi-fi in preference to the mobile network whenever both are available. I had one for a month, it was my primary means of internet access and I didn't get charged a penny for any data usage. I used it on both my home wireless network and in many public hotspots.

In any case, it's easy to check: the top of the screen will show the wi-fi logo in white when connected and greyed out when wi-fi is switched on but not connected.

I hope that this answers your question, if so then please take a moment to rate my reply. If not, then please add a comment and I shall expand upon my answer to suit your needs.

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!
