Support HELP: Can't go online with cell phone towers only

Discussion in 'Android Devices' started by magentawave, Jan 12, 2011.

  1. 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

    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
     
  4. 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.
