Another quick question on the Portal, a bit annoying.
When you are unlocking the screen, via sliding the green thingy, there is a speaker on the other side to mute sounds. Except it not only mutes sounds it turns off the vibration too. So to mute the phone without losing vibrate I have to go to sounds and enter silent mode. It seems to have 2 silent modes, 1 is vibrate which turns off all tones except alarms but keeps vibrate, the other (via front screen slider) turns off everything.
No way to change that?
And one more, when I'm on 3, (home network) it still shows the little "R". That's one of the issue I listed earlier. However since the firmware flash I no longer have the same options for data usage. Originally under "Data roaming" it gave the options;
Now it is just on or off. If I'm on 3 with the "R" symbol, it won't access data at all. But surely as long as it says 3 I can turn data roaming on because it's not really roaming?
And last stupid question, if I am on home network will that background data access cost me anything?
no, i see your point there. i have the same issue, can anyone shed light on it? (roaming issue) i may have plugged this my manually selecting 3 from the network providers in call settings
as for the slide volume thing, i think if you go to settings for each app and turn on Vibrate notify then it stays of even if the phone is on silent (by apps i mean email and ringtone and any other notifications individually)

Sorry if this has been asked before, I read the older threads but can't find the answer.
I recently debranded my Galaxy Portal, on the 3 network in the UK.
What are the APN settings to reconnect? Google searches only give bits of answers.
Could you tell me how you debranded your Portal? I recently bought a used one and the 3 ireland network stuff is beggining to bug me. I've found this site which supplies a pack for 10 quid, but not sure how good they are or if there are better ways: Debrand Samsung i5700 Galaxy Portal
Fonefunshop were the one I used. It worked fine, but the instructions weren't too clear for a technophobe and the aftersales service was crap. If you have half an idea of what you're doing though it's fine.
Whatsapp application on my S2 on 3 mobile UK is not sending and receiving any messages. The regular data network i.e. internet surfing and FB are working correctly on mobile data. I can receive and send whatsapp messages over WiFi. I tried changing the APN settings but found no luck. When I change the settings it switches back to its previous APN. could you please help me.
