    Hy everyone.

    I've read throug the forums in search of some answers for my prolem, but couldn't find answers, so here goes nothing.

    I've just upgraded to JB 2 days ago. I've first flashed the UK firmware- I9100XWLSS-via ODIN. Everything went smoothly: phone seemed to be working just fine, but then i've noticed some problems with it:

    A lot of my applications are having problems connecting to internet. For example: whatsapp, facebook, Ymail, Gmail, messenger or radio apps wich are using Internet connections, like tunein radio or digitally imported.

    Every message i am sending via whatsapp or messenger takes ages to send and the messages i am receiving in return are not loading. Even though, i have a good signal and i can browse the internet, connect to Play store or facebook during that time.
    All this, while using the internet from my SIM card.

    Once i connected to a friend's WI-FI the next day, notifications from all these apps, started appearing on my phone, all of them from the previous day...:thinking:

    Turned back to SIM internet to check if the problems persists.....and it does.

    Same goes for internet radio: tried connecting to tune in radio and it won't connect, even though i have good signal from my service provider on my SIM. WIth WI-FI, no problem.

    I've inserted my SIM card into another phone and tried connecting to tune in radio, and it works. So, i don't think the problem lies with the mobile provider/SIM.

    I am firmly convinced, there is a problem with the phone or the settings...:thinking:

    Has anyone here heard about problems like these?!
    Have you guys have any tips for me?!

    PS: i want to add that i did a factory reset after the upgrade.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hello and welcome to Android Forums rs12 ! :)

    What firmware was your phone on prior to flashing the UK, (XEU, I guess), firmware?

    The fact that you connection is fine on Wi-Fi but not using your sim card in your phone, would indicate a likely problem with the APN settings after upgrading and you may need to re-enter these from your carrier.
