    My device will NOT go online unless I'm connected to wifi. Where in the settings do I go so I can connect to the internet when I do NOT have a wifi connection please? Meaning that I want to go online using the cell phone towers.

    Thanks
    Steve

    Presuming you have a data plan with your provider - it sounds like your apn's are not set (Access Point Names) You need to find the internet and mms apn settings for your provicer and enter them setting/wireless and network/mobile networks/access point names

    Thanks guys. I checked all that stuff of course before posting this because those are the most obvious. So I called Simple Mobile (my carrier) and it turns out that there is a 3rd APN I have to create that is specific to the Samsung Galaxy S that isn't shown on their "Android Configuration" page.

    Thanks again.
