    i just received my new SGS2 on vodafone. i called them and asked for the internet, wap and mms settings and i have followed their guide how to set it up.

    when i went into market it first asked to link to my gmail account with was successful so surely the settings work but it then kept coming up with an error which seem to be settings related as i have no coverage problems here in birmingham with vodafone on any of my other phones.

    if someone can give me a PROPER guide i would appreciate settings and help with the MMS and WAP to make sure they have also given me correct info for those also.

    i am on contract not PAYG

    any ideas what i may be doing wrong guys?

    thanks

    Sorry, I am a little confused in what you are asking...
    Are you saying you have no Internet data (as in you go to The Market but can not access the site) or are you saying you can not get SMS coverage (as in a 2G network)?

    Explain exactly what Apps or services you are trying to access and what the problem is for each.

    thx for the reply.

    after playing around with it a bit it does connect. the problem is that the connection isnt too good in my house even though with my old phone it wasnt too bad. the connection stays with the E sign at the top and only goes to 3g or H sometimes for short periods when i go into different locations.

    any way of improving this apart from moving outside or to other locations?

    cheers

    Unfortunately not.... There is no software app I know of that can increase the sensitivity.
    Having said that I only get two to three bars on my SGS II but it can still pick up a connection better than the SGS which has three to four bars.

    Hi, I seem to be having a similar problem to what you mentioned (all those months ago). I basically switched SIMs to try out a particular setting on my s2 but when I put my vodafone sim back in I have NO internet data whether that be E/3G :(
    Do you have any idea how to fix this?

    Cheers

    Hi,

    I have SGS2 and I activated internet on airtel. I am able to access internet from the android market applications. But when I am trying to open the browser for opening a website it says "Network is temporarily unavailable".

    Can anyone sort this out?

    Reg,

    u managed to give me the info i was unable to get directly from vodafone.
    I visited the store, made 5 phone calls and was about to go back into town to the store.

    U just saved me a slog through the snow.

    Many thanks!

    Glad I could be of help.

    The settings that Vodafone UK give out are absolutely useless. It took me quite awhile, both in a Vodafone shop and on the phone to them, to sort out these settings that work. That was 8 months ago and they still give out the wrong one's, even insisting on separate data and MMS settings sometimes. :rolleyes:
