Good afternoon all,

I was originally using a GSM iPhone and I've switched to an android Samsung Galaxy Ace S5830L. I've got some problems connecting to the internet and was wondering if someone could help me resolve the issue.

These are the steps I took from Settings >> Wireless and networks >> Mobile networks >> Network operators:

I've selected SGP-M1-GSM and it says "Registered on network" but I still can't seem to connect to the internet.

What do I have to do to enable internet connection?

I'm currently using v2.3.4 if that matters.

I am not sure if this would work, but worth a try. Some mobile phones and some cell phone service providers require the use of APN. Contact your cell phone service provider for the APN.

  • Heys cool it's working now (instructions from unlockit.co.nz/mobilesettings/settings.php?id=220) but it seems to be really slow, like 1 minute per page load. Do you know what may be the problem ?

  • @Pacerier That sounds more like a network problem than an Android problem. Jan 30, 2012 at 18:08
  • @MatthewRead But its slow yesterday and its still slow today.. (I don't get this problem on the iphone) is it possible that I have my settings set wrongly? Like do I have to turn off/on anything?

  • Not sure but see if caching helps.
