    Hi Guys,

    I'm new here so hi all :)

    Just got a Samsung Galaxy Ace last Friday. I had a Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 and lost it and when the insurance were due to replace it they said it wasn't in stock so I got the Ace instead. Which I have to say I am liking!

    Anyways to my problem. When I'm out and about and want to check my email/facebook etc it doesn't seem to be allowing me to connect to the internet. In the first few days I could. The little GPRS icon appeared. And I know you have to be in range etc but I havent been able to do it for a few days so I'm wondering if there is a setting I can check? I would've thought if it couldn'tn get 3G it would still connect via 2G or whatever once I have a decent mobile signal.

    Anyways any help greatly appreciated

    Hi,,, I have the Galaxy Ace. but it connects itself to internet via mobile network which costs a lot,,, how can I stop the phone from that, and connect to internet only when it is within a wifi range,,,

    NOTE: it is my first time to deal with android, so if you could answer me step by step in details it would be helpful...

    Thank you and have a nice day

    Goto Menu>Settings>Wireless and Networks>Mobile Networks and disable the first option :)
    For Wifi only just switch on your Wifi, and goto Menu>Settings>Wireless and Networks>Wifi Settings and you'll see an option there to notify you when there is an open network available :)

    Hai dude,i bought d mb last mnth,n them i was totaly dumb abt it.
    And my 1gb of data vaporizd in a week,coz my new mob requrird many apps to be dwnlded.
    So i sugest yu to use wifi instd of packet data in the begining.
