    Hi all,

    When I first bought my Samsung Galaxy S, I shut down everything 3G related as my internet bundle didn't kick in until this week. Now I can't seem to switch 3G access back on.

    I've downloaded APNdroid, but I've clearly left something crucial switched off as 3G still not working. Can anyone help? The instruction manual isn't very useful.

    Ha!
    How did you switch it off?
    Cos mine is permanently on and I'd like to turn it off.

    Apparently, android provides no way to directly turn off GPRS, big oops if you ask me. Install APNDroid, it turns off GPRS by altering your APN settings with some text, thereby invalidating them. Only trouble I've seen is that sometimes GPRS does not get activated, even if you turn it back on using APNDroid. Restarting the phone fixes this.

    There are other ways too: How to Turn Off and Disable Mobile Data Connection (2G/GPRS/Edge/3G) on Android Phone My Digital Life

    I am clearly some kind of idiot genius, then. Tried using APNdroid first, but no joy. Resorted to factory settings reset and all is well now. APNdroid is really helpful now I've got GPRS working again!

    Thanks for your help!
