Samsung Captivate :: 3G Not Working And Browser Turned Off?
Oct 10, 2010
I was using my captivate last night and the 3g and browser suddenly turned off. I restarted the phone several times and let is sit all last night and all of today. I recently tried again but its still not up. I have no 3g or 2g (edge) I can still receive texts and call but nothing to do with the browser. I've tried flight mode and everything else I could think of but nothing is working.
I have a Samsung captivate and was trying to do an update on it. The screen turned black and then turned off. I tried taking the battery out and restarting it, but now it wont even turn on. I have never done an update until tonight.
My phone turned off by itself today while it was in my pocket, here are some information. The phone is also not rooted, no launchers have been used, and is currently using TouchWiz. Purchased from AT&T Premier website on August 27th 2010 Delivered to me September 1st 2010 Manufacturing Date - August 2nd 2010 Battery Manufacturing Date - Not checked Apps installed before shutoff experience: Dictionary.com Fandango Movies The Moron Test Lite WordUp Google Voice Speedtest.net Barcode Scanner Ninja Kaka - Fruit Dojo Drop Block DEMO Hella Umbrella Beta PapiJump Jewels Unblock Me FREE Smooth Calendar GPS Test 1 Day/Night before I experienced the shutoff, the following were installed: - Used my own wallpaper jpeg instead of one from the Captivate's stock wallpaper folder - Beautiful Widgets - AppBrain App Market - Fast Web Installer - Angry Birds Lite Beta (APK FILE, USED ANDROID CENTRAL'S SIDELOADER MACHINE) - Paper Toss I've had my phone for exactly 1 week, and after reading all the horror stories of people experiencing the random shut offs, I thought I was lucky up until now. I love this phone a lot despite the obvious GPS issues. Does anyone have any idea on what may be causing this? Hardware or Software issue?I would hate to exchange it for another with AT&T since I've become so attached to it.
I saw an Android tip that said "Use the power button to end a call", but it needed to be turned on in the Accessibility menu. When I got to Settings->Accessibility, it is grayed out and it says "Downloaded accessibility application is required to activate". What app do I need to download to enable this accessibility setting?
My Captivate's browser will crash / shut down, upon attempting to launch a web page.
This occurs with random pages, it happens about once out 20 times I go to load any web page.
It does not happen on the all pages, just certain pages. (I've failed to note which pages so far) When it does happen, if I try to open that same web page again again, it crashes. If I immediately try another web page it's fine.
My Captivate is original, w/ver 2.1 Eclair, not rooted (yet) and otherwise operates very well. So far it's the only bug I've had.
The Swype Keyboard on my wife's Captivate is not working correctly. The SYM button and the one to the left of it are blanked out - meaning they are just black boxes and clicking/pressing them does nothing. She has had to switch to the default keyboard and she hates it.Any idea what is going on and how to fix this?
What are options for using the web browser with white text on black? I really want this option because it is so much easier on the eyes and better for battery as well. I've tried this option in the e-reader for reading and it makes a world of difference although its something to get used to a bit.
So my browser stopped working. I tryed changing some setting so that it would stop showing me the mobile view of websites and from then on it force closes and says: The Application Web (proxess/com.android.browser) has stopped unexpectedly/ Please try again. dumpstae_app_201009191206_com_android_browser.log has been saved. Use *#9900# to copu out log. FORCE CLOSE
Since day one when I went on youtube to watch a video it asked me do you want to view view in browser or video?I liked deciding because if I clicked browser I could read and post comments..but I accidentally clicked the video viewer as daily and can't change it back.Now when I click a video on youtube I can't read or post any comments.
My stock internet browser has stopped working I've installed Opera to see if that works and it does but the stock browser wont work anymore, I just get the "web page unavailable" page. I'm using firmware 2.2 and all other apps can connect to the internet ok.
