Samsung Galaxy S APN Settings - Tried settings from the 2 other posts with no joy!

Hi, I'm a new giffgaffer & I've been trying to get the internet working on my Samsung Galaxy S. I've entered all of the settings as recommended in this thread: http://community.giffgaff.com/t5/Help-Ask-the-community-got-stuck/Samsung-Galaxy-S-internet-settings... After doing this the Hspda connected symbol comes up & has 4-5 bars but when I try to load a web page nothing happens... However if I go to the youtube app it does connect & streams over Hspda pretty quickly. Can anyone else with a Samsung Galaxy S please confirm ALL of the settings I should set my phone to, to get the internet running as the guide in the link misses a few things on my APN settings (ie authentication type & apn type etc) Any help would be most appreciated.

I've just setup my gmail account on the galaxy s and I can also send & receive emails. However none of the connecting widgets (eg weather) can get a net connection either. Hspda is connected & working for some things to get data/net access but not others, there must be a wrong setting somewhere... can anyone help? Maybe post a COMPLETE list of everything I need to do to get the net working? Thanks.

Now fixed myself by using only the basic settings with no proxies or ports entered.

I see you've got it working, but in some cases you need to restart your phone before the new settings will take effect.

Also, are you sure that there are no other APNs activated?

Yeah thats what I have already put but like the first poster described, only the app store and email work, but web pages do not load!

 

Do you have any more ideas?

Check your browsers default connection setting. it could still be set for your old network. And restart the phone.

I don't seem to be able to find this on my Galaxy S, as it is not under settings.
