Angry [solved] Can not save APN-Setting

Hi Experts,

I´ve got a big big Problem. I can not save the settings of my APN. It is not a question of handling - I know where the menu button is :-) But after entering the APN-Settings and pressing the button "save" the Settings were not saved. Does anybody know how to save the APN-settings?

Firmware -Versin : 1.5
Baseband-Version: I7500XX1FF
Kernel-Version: 2.6.27
Build-Nummer: 76XXCSDCBALUM6375

Bernd.....

Bernd: this happened to me after upgrading (to H7 i think). I solved it by doing factory reset (settings). Also one time I had the same problem, after some time I don't know why the phone rebooted and it worked after that. Did do a factory reset too though. I think that is the problem - factory reset.
Regards

Unhappy

Hi;

thank you very much for your fast reply. I bought that Phone at ebay without simlock 2 weeks ago. Now after your hint about my android-Version I made an update. Now my Version is:

Firmware: 1.5
Baseband-Version: I7500XXIHB
Kernel-Version: 2.6.27
Build-Number: 76XXCSDCBALUM6375

But the situation is still the same. It is not possible to save APN-Settings.

Any Idea?

best regards bernd....

Hi,

Any other ideas if a factory reset doesn't work? Have tried to add the APN several times and after you press save and go back to the APN list it's still empty.

Running the H7 update.

Ok, thanks for the help. Will see if I have the time or if I will go back to my HTC Magic and throw the i7500 in the trash bin (tells what I think about the I7500).

Wooland, I've had problems with the APN list as well, on the original firmware, H7, and still on H8.

I haven't figured it out, but I can get it to work again (for a time...) by:
-- rebooting
-- taking the battery out
-- taking the SIM card out
-- setting and unsetting Flight Mode.
With a mixture of these methods, it works 95% of the time.

It's not ideal, and definitely something I hope to see fixed SOOOON! I am soo disappointed over Samsung in their support for this phone. I guess I should have gone for the ugly G1, it seems to be where the developer focus is (both from Google, the phone vendor, and the community).

Thanks for the tip will try it out. I'm also so disappointed at Samsung how can you release something so unstable?

The HTC Magic and Hero works as a charm, no issues just pleasure...so I suspect that I will end up with going back to HTC and never ever buy something from Samsung again...when it comes to phones.

Using Sony Ericsson X10 I had same problem after replacing a defective SIM card from Bell Mobility. Solution was to use Sony Ericsson PC Companion | Support Zone | Software Update | Repair

This resets the phone's OS so make sure (as warned in the procedure) you use Backup feature in the phone to save your contacts and settings.

Yep, and the solution is for Sony Ericsson Xperia 10.
Don't know if that advice will work for Sam*censored Galaxy.

P.S: anyway not bad for a first post.
