    No facility in Android for underlying proxy (yes bizarre - not even on 2.1 as far as I have read!) - apps in the marketplace to get the browser to use a proxy - but I'm not sure they support user authentication credentials.

    Also the proxy app(s) only support the browser - so other web apps (you tube etc) will still not work.

    You can add the proxy details (in Galaxy S): But if there is user authentication required then its a problem!

    To add the proxy settings:
    1. In the wifi settings page click menu button
    2. Click Advanced
    3. Enter the proxy name / ip and the Port number

    I have added proxy details via the settings, wi-fi, advanced.

    The problem is, that uses a proxy for every wi-fi connection it makes. Fro example, the proxy is needed for my work wireless, but when I go home, I dont need the proxy so im being forced to delete it whilst at home and re-enter back at work. Other software out there lets you define a proxy per seperate wireless settings.
