When your phone connects to the Internet, a DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) server on the Internet supplies an IP-address for your phone, and it also supplies the IP-address of a DNS (Domain Name Service) server.

Connect to the DNS-server to translate a name, e.g., '' to an IP-address.

So, if your Internet connection is not working, your phone cannot "talk" to the DNS-server, and your phone reports "unavailable".

So, check your Internet settings, to confirm that you have a connection.

When i tried to access the internet it is saying DNS error? What's this?

In most cases, a DNS error just means that the your cellphone is facing connectivity problems. This could be happening for a variety of reasons, especially if you are connecting to the Internet via a wireless connection. Since DNS transforms the website URL into a numerical IP address, without the DNS functioning properly, the Internet connection will be quite useless.

Now, for you to fix it, please try this:
1. Go to Menu
2. Messages
3. Settings
4. E-mails
5. Receiving options
Please apply these settings:
Check interval (not used)
Send read receipt (no)
then leave the rest and then click on SAVE.

I hope this helps.

Thanks for using FixYa.

I can not download my emails on my samsung as it keeps telling me DNS failed. What is the problem

DNS fails happen if you do not have the static DNS server settings sent from your network provider. You need to contact your SP and advised them to send you the WAP and email setup settings on your handset. Once you get it , go to the Emails, settings, profiles and pick the one which is your service providers name.

You will need to get the internet connection settings from your service provider. Contact your mobile service provider and download the settings. Also some service providers require you to activate some kind of internet packs before browsing. Check if this is the case with your SP too.
