Internet / Data Connection Problem - Samsung Galaxy S2


I have upgraded to a sg2 but i'm having issues connecting to the internet. I have the data network mode activated & my apn is 02 uk mobile web. However, i get 'internet not available' messages even if i have a good signal & a g showing. I can be standing in the same location that my old se symbian phone connected, although very slowly. And friends with different phones can connect. I hoped the new phone would work better not worse for the internet - the reviews said it was excellent! On the rare occasion i'm in a h area its fine but these spots are infrequent. Are there any other settings i need, any suggestions on how i can get this working.

Issue: Tethering Makes Data Connection Icon Disappears On Galaxy S2

Everytime i set up my phone for wifi tethering i seem to have a problem. The main thing i notice is my data connection icon disappears i.e 3g, h, h+ with the up/down arrow flashing indication data transfer. However, when i switch off the tethering the icon reappears.

Samsung Galaxy S - No Setting For Disabling Mobile Internet

A friend of mine was sold an sgs by o2 this week without a data plan. This was at her request because she is not that tech savvy and did not appreciate how integral to android data is. L pointed out that unless she got a data plan she needed to turn off mobile internet to avoid getting stung but when i tried there did not appear to be any way to do it. The options that i have in the settings and power button menu on my desire were missing. I thought these settings were stock android. Am i wrong? Or have samsung or o2 removed these settings?

I've implemented the android licensing in my application following the example code using the servermanagedpolicy.

The licence checker works fine, however when a device or emulator has no data connection then the licensing code will always return dontallow(), while i want it to allow. I cannot seem to find anything on the page above that details how to avoid this.

Htc Evo 4g - 3g Data Connection Suddenly Drops / Solve This

I keep running into this issue. First of all, i live in a very good service area, so it's not lack of a strong signal that causes this. I'll be using the web browser and suddenly a page won't load and i look up to notice my 3g icon is gone! It usually takes turning off/on the phone to get it back. It's super annoying and i was wondering if anyone else ever experiences this and if so, is there anything that can be done to fix it?

Cannot Install, Update Apps Or Clear Cache Data - Samsung Galaxy Nexus

Can't install, uninstall or update any apps either through google play on phone or through internet. When trying on my phone, the screen gets stuck at the blue progress line ("installing", "uninstalling", etc. ) And never completes. Back button doesn't leave the screen, but the home button and recent apps button will get me out, and i can go back to the settings>apps screen and try again.

Can't clear cache or data for any apps from the settings>apps. All apps say "computing. " For storage and cache info and never change. In settings>apps>running a number of games (small street, contract killer, stardom, e. Warriors, etc. ) Auto-start and keep coming back after i force close or reboot.

Here's what i've done so far to try to fix it. Reboot, shut down, battery pull. Force close every suspicious app. Certain apps keep coming back. Tried to clear cache of google play store app, but it doesn't seem to clear. Also, clear data, uninstall update never completed. Read more at the forum.

Cannot Disable " Data Background Services " After Upgrade To Ics - Samsung Galaxy S2

Since upgrading to ics (ice cream sandwich) with my galaxy s2, one of the changes is you can no longer disable "data background services". When i bought my phone a couple of months ago i was told in the o2 shop to disable data background services to enhance the battery life. I did this and the battery lasted really well as i only enabled the service when i needed to. This facility has now gone and i am finding my battery life really quite poor.

I don't use the mobile network for internet as have wifi at home and work so my phone is connected to that. I notice it must be doing things in the background as i get alerts for facebook, twitter etc so i presume it is working hard in the background and that is what using the battery. Does anyone have any suggestions as to how i can improve the battery life. It is really annoying that this has gone with the upgrade as it certainly made a big difference.

Samsung Exhibit 4g Connection Problem

Whenever i try to use my 4g connection it is able to send a receive data from the tower just fine
After a few minutes it starts to glitch out on me and it gets stuck on sending data to the tower with no response. The only way to fix this error is to turn on and off data packet data, but it happens again and faster each time i do that. So ive decided to switch to a slow-as-molasses edge connection. My data plan is limited by 2gb per billing cycle then afterwards it gets slowed down. The time when i get a new bill is the only time it seems to work again. But then again, i only have 2gb. Can anyone help me with this?

I have a samsung exhibit 4g
My carrier is t-mobile
My android model is gingerbread
And the version is 2. 3

Samsung I7500 - Can't Find Paid Apps - Wifi Never Seems To Hold The Connection

There was a time when i could see paid apps in the market and have purchased several including better keyboard. For the past couple of months, i just cannot see any paid apps on the market and nor do i see upgrade notifications for paid apps that i have already purchased (for instance, i cannot find newer versions of better keyboard although it's installed on my i7500, and was purchased from the market). Any idea what the problem might be?

Also, wifi never seems to hold the connection when the phone goes to sleep even though it's set to 'never' in the wi-fi sleep setting.

Data Not Working After Swapped From Galaxy S2 To Skyrocket

I just swapped to a skyrocket from a normal gs2, and now i can't get the data to work at all. Wifi is fine, but no data. It seems like a setting or something but i have the "data packet" checked on in the mobile data settings. My sim card says 3g and is white and blue, not sure why that would matter though. I live in an area (ottawa, il) that doesn't have lte so i should have h+ but im not sure what im doing wrong? I checked the power save mode etc. Any ideas?
