Samsung Epic 4G :: No Internet Connectivity / Network Settings
Nov 14, 2010
My Epic 4G just lost all connection to the internet about an hour ago. Out of the blue, so to speak. I was browsing, set it down, then when I used it again it wouldn't connect. My browser, facebook, and any other connection required apps throw error messages saying - "connection error", "no connection". I've reset the phone several times, and as far as for the network settings, everything looks set the way it always is. I have done nothing to the network settings/options to have accidentally messed it up myself. I am connected via 3G, and this network problem is new to me. This phone has been nothing but constant problems and this is the newest one in a long list.
So I dropped AT&T for the Incredible and my number successfully ported over, but I cannot connect to the Internet.I can make/receive calls and SMS, but no Internet besides wifi.I've been on with vzw support and went through reactivating the phone (*228) and a couple hard reset to no avail.They said it could have something to do with porting from AT&T, but I'm not understanding that connection.I don't have too much faith in support figuring out so I'm trying this forum. Does anyone have a clue how to resolve this or is it a defect with the phone.Some details: there is no 3G symbol near the signal status bars.Settings/Wireless & networks: shows "Mobile Network" with a green check, buts its grayed out so no action can be taken on it.Directly underneath "Mobile Network" it says "Turning on..." and it seems to flash that status every once in a while.
Recently purchased the Desire and am happy as larry with the purchase. One small problem. It would appear it has issues with my networks APN settings. I'll it admit that I'm a little puzzled after staring at the APN settings for a while and adding the ips etc still not getting any luck. 2degrees (my provider) have attempted ota delivery but no luck. Here are the settings:
WAP Gateway Settings WAP gateway IP: 126.96.36.199 WAP Gateway Port (WAP2): 8080 WAP Gateway Port (WAP1): 9201 Homepage: 2degrees Mobile Portal APN: 2degrees
MMS Settings WAP Gateway Port (WAP2): 8080 WAP Gateway Port (WAP1): 9201 WAP gateway IP: 188.8.131.52 Homepage: http://mms.2degreesmobile.net.nz:48090 APN: mms Internet Settings Homepage: 2degrees Mobile Portal APN: internet
Anyone who has the x10 mini could they please tell me what exactly I should be inputting for the correct settings? I have the info off the three.co.uk page & I know where they should be entered on the phone but the info isn't exactly the same (the phone has "proxy" "port" "MMS proxy" "MMS port" which two out of these four should I enter the details from three's website I have tried umpteen times to get it right.
I'm having a problem with my internet connection on my SGS. It used to lock to T-m*bile, I unlocked it lastweek then use L*bara instead cause got free internet service hehe. somehow, everytime i try to use internet service it says unable to connect to internet/ network unavailable. but I tried the simcard with another phone and it was working. some friends suggest me to re-unlock it. but i donno how to re-unlock it.
I live in nyc where according to sprints coverage map I'm located in a dark blue area where 4g is supposed to be working even indoors. However, when I try to connect to 4g indoors my phone always tells me "4g network disconnected". The only time I get 4g is if I'm outdoors and even then it sometimes disconnects after a few minutes. So is this what we have been waiting for? For a 4g speed that only works if you're outside? I'm wondering if this is only in NYC or in all other places that officially have 4g? I can't believe that I'm paying 10 dollars extra for a service which I won't be able to use 90% of the time!
I have a simple java code which gets html text from the input url:
I am using this code in an android project. Now the problem comes when there is no internet connectivity. The application just halts and later gives error. Is there some way to break this after some fixed timeout, or even return some specific string after an exception is thrown.
I have an IntentService which makes some web service calls. Before making these calls I check to make sure the device has network connectivity.
I am doing so like this:
Unfortunately, when I'm debugging on my Android device, this returns false when I have both a network and a wireless connection.
Some interesting tidbits about connec.getNetworkInfo(0):
Clearly this code is not sufficient (perhaps it would only return true if I sent some bit over the network and turned the radio on?). Moreover, since I'm not well versed in the ConnectivityManager, I'm assuming I should probably be scanning all networks (ie: getNetworkInfo(0 through N)).
I am working to send request to internet and get data, my emulator show the 3G sign on it, i have also sent the permission to internet connectivity in my app. But when i click on button to send request it return null. I have checked the request link in chrom it send data successfully.
I'm new to Android development and working on an Android application that requires the phone to be connected to the internet, through either Wifi, EDGE or 3G.
This is the code that I'm using to check whether an internet connection is available
I've also set these permissions in the manifest file.
This works fine in the emulator running version 1.5 of Android when 3G is enabled, but it crashes when I disable the 3G connection. My application throws a null pointer exception when I call isConnectedOrConnecting(). The same thing also happens on my HTC Desire running Android 2.1.
my WiFi on my Evo has been acting up, so I went and restarted modem and router, turned off WiFi on Evo, battery pull Evo, then as a last resort, I updated my router's firmware (since its been over a year since update =/) so I figured maybe that would solve something. Nope, can't even update Twitter, Facebook, get on internet. I did update on 6/28 and everything went smooth and my WiFi was working then. I have done nothing since and then all of a sudden, last night and today WiFi wont work.
I guess to explain this better, I can connect to my router, Evo shows that I'm connected with Good/Excellent connection and 55 mbps, but its like no internet connectivity, Facebook, Twitter, Internet, nothing. Like I've said up until last night everything was working until now. Did the update on 6/28 just slowly kill my WiFi?
my husband currently has the Epic. Picked it up for him launch day and sent it out to Iraq the next day. He received it today.He had an Evo before the epic and never had this issue. the issue he's having is, obviously he doesn't pick up sprint service out in iraq, but with his evo he was able to pick up wifi and connect to google talk, qik, etc.his epic is allowing him to connect to a wifi signal, but it won't allow him to connect to google talk, qik, etc. it keeps saying "can't connect to server". like i said, he never had this issue with the evo.
I can't stream aac or aac+ when on the cell network, only when on wifi. This is not a bandwidth issue. On Cherry player, for example, it almost immediately goes to a stopped state, before making any real attempt to connect or buffer--long before any timeout that is.
I have a terrible bug in my widget. The widget is waken up using an AlarmManager (the update interval is chosen by users, ranging from 30 mins to 2 hours) to grab some data from the Internet and display it on the widget. I do not hold a wakelock since if the phone sleeps, just let it sleeps. There's no way to update the information since nobody will see it. If I put the phone in the basement (has no wi-fi or cell signal) for about an hour. the phone will definitely not update anything. However, when I get it back from the basement, the cell network could never be recovered again no matter how long I have waited (it just get an X on the cell signal icon on the notification bar) that I must restart the phone. May I know if a partial wake lock must be held on checking network availability?
Anybody notice they are losing their Internet connectivity while tethering with 2.2 Roms. I have run BB, Kangerade, and CM6 rc1&2 with them all losing Internet connectivity completely. I have tried different kernels and different baseband all resulting in the connectivity loss. Is this a hardware problem with the phone or is it software based. This is a somewhat new phone and I honestly can't remember my previous one giving me this many problems while running 2.2 roms when they first came out.
Does anyone use this? if so, what are the best settings to have it set at to utilize it the best. seems like my battery dies so quickly. I had an evo before i got the epic, and i also had an extended battery (3000) so maybe it's just coming from that to a stock battery, but i still can't help but to wonder if this phone just dies so much more quickly because of some other reason.
I'm not sure if this is the correct place, but I could not find anything better. I'm looking for the APN settings for the Proximus (Belgium) network for my brand new Samsung Galaxy.I've tried the information I could find the internet but I don't seems to be able to get a data connection, so I just want to verify that I've set it up correctly on my end.
I have a Service/AlarmManager set to go off ever hour; as seen at: http://github.com/commonsguy/cw-advandroid/tree/master/SystemServices...
The Alarm triggers a Socket connection to communicate with a Web Server. I'm logging the interaction to a file so I can see it later. When I leave the phone on my desk for a day, it seems that more often than not I get a "Network unreachable" error when trying to do any networking.
I believe it is related to how deeply the phone goes into sleep. Is there a special kind of lock I have to hold, or some command required to prep the wireless radio so that it can be ready to access the Internet?
I am looking at which HTC phone to buy. I need WiFi to connect to the Internet at home. I also want PUSH email, my understand of PUSH email is that every half n hour or something I can get the software to go out and search for new emails whilst not having to go into the app and click refresh to see new emails, something which I have to do on my N95. I also need a decent SatNAV, now I know that google navigation is out. I don't know how good it is due to the lack of information out on the Internet. Do all HTC phones drain the battery with GPS? Okay so I need SatNAV, then I also need a phone with decent car cradles, I need something that enables me to rotation it portrait and landscape easily.
Do HTC phones come with a car charger in the box? I also use Gmail a lot, now is there any advantages that I will get from getting a HTC phone and utilizing my Gmail account, as well as calendar. Is there a simple way of getting the phone to sync with outlook such as the tasks and notes you make? Are most applications on Android free? Do the phones last a long time? I like the idea of the kickstand in the Droid incredible I think, that phone is very appealing for me. I am just thinking of getting the phone not for phone and text use but for just Internet and applications.
I am attempting to connect my laptop to the Epic Hotspot. My laptop is able to find SPH-D70002E (Epic) on my laptop's WiFi available network list. When I click on that, I get a Window's error message: "Windows is unable to connect to the selected network. The network may no longer be in range. Please refers the list of available networks and try to connect again." The SPH-D70002E (Epic) is full bars strength.
I seem to be seeing an issue with the data network access on the EVO. When it happens none of my applications get internet aceess and my mobile network status says "turning on". The only way I've found to fix it is to pull the battery. Any one else seeing this? If so is there a better fix than pulling the battery?
