Internet settings for Samsung Wave GT-S8500

Hey, I was wondering if anyone has any idea regarding the internet settings for the Samsung Wave S8500. I am able to make/recieve calls and texts but I am having a problem with the internet settings.

 

Texting 'settings' to 8080 does not work 

 

Thanks :smileyhappy:

To get an Android phone working:

From the home screen, press the Menu key and select Settings > Wireless & Networks > Mobile networks > Access Point Names

If there are any APN settings listed here, delete them all, so you can start again from scratch.

Press the Menu key and select New APN, then enter the following details:

Name: giffgaff
APN: giffgaff.com
Username: giffgaff
Password: password
MMSC: http:// mmsc.mediamessaging.co.uk:8002
MMS Proxy: 193.113.200.195
MMS Port: 8080
MCC: 234
MNC: 10

Press the Menu key and select Save, then tap the circle next to giffgaff so a green dot appears (this makes sure the APN settings are active).

Have a quick check under Settings > Wireless and Networks > Mobile Networks and make sure 'Use Packet Data' is selected.

Press the Back key until you return to the home screen, then restart your handset.

Alternatively, if you happen to have access to a WiFi connection, then download and install the 'giffgaffAPN' App from Google Play and this will install the settings for both internet and MMS.

Re: Internet settings for Samsung Wave GT-S8500

Try texting the word "settings" to 2020 (not 8080)!

Have you turned on packet data? Also verify that network mode is set to Auto.

You also need to make sure the settings are installed (as already mentioned, by texting the word SETTINGS to 2020, tap on the text bubble to open in full view, then tap 'Install' If the settings don't come through, see this post for a screenshot of my settings.) and profiles set correctly:

 

If you are still on Bada 1

 

You need to go into Settings -> Applications 

then: Media Player -> VOD settings; check giffgaff WAP then tap Set.

do the same thing for:

Internet -> Internet profiles

Samsung Apps -> Network Profiles
Social Network Profiles

 

Then

 

Settings -> Menu and Widgets -> Widget -> Widget profiles

 

If you want any Java apps (like Opera Mini or Google maps) to work go into 'Games and more' pull up the menu at the bottom, tap connections and you're presented with the now-familiar screen.

 

If you upgraded to Bada 2 they are now all grouped together in one place.

 

Settings -> Network -> Application profiles

 

The first two should already be set, just go though the list and change them all to giffgaff WAP, if they are not already. (mine were all set to O2)

 

Hope that helps!
