    Hello All,

    I'm from India and i have a Vodafone 3G connection for my S2. I can browse through Internet browser on my phone but strangely, none of the apps which require data connection are not opening such as Gmail app or FB app.

    Is it a problem with my data connection or something to do with my phone settings? Please advise.

    Thanks.

    If you have data connection i.e. browsing works, then it is most likely something to do with settings. Have to check if background sync is enabled, if the settings for syncing in the apps is done right for example not set to manual, and to check if there are any apps that restricts data connection for apps.

    Just my thoughts...

    It need not be a phone specific issue. This could happen if your APN setting is missing the internet APN. You might be having the APN for gprs and mms, but there are chances that your provider missed to send you your APN for internet. Do a quick google for the internet APN settings of your provider and enter it in there.

    A sample internet APN setting for !dea would look like the following.

    name : idea_internet
    apn : internet
    apn type : internet

    Please do try it out. This would solve the issue with all your communication apps. I had the same on my galaxy S3 and this fixed my issue.

    Cheers!
