    I just updated to 2.2. from 2.1 in order to be able to use skype as apparently 2.2 can run skype.
    Anyways, when i finished installing 2.2 froyo using odin etc... the phone doesn't connect to 3G anymore, cannot connect to the internet.
    Do you have any ideas how to solve this?
    Thanks a lot

    Do you have the right APN settings? And what does the phone say in the menu that pops up when you press the power button long?
    In 2.2, when you press the power button longer, a menu pops up and you can make some changes in your settings. One of the settings you can change is, data(I mean 3G).

    Hi thanks for your answer,
    when i press the power for longer, i have a menu with three items
    -silent mode
    -plane mode
    -power off.
    when i check settings and version of android = 2.2

    how do you check the apn settings and what modifications are necessary.
    Thanks a lot
