Samsung Ch@t - GT-S3350

[ Edited ]

Having recently bought a Samsung Ch@t I had 4 days of unsuccessful attempts to load the internet, even after following all the advice from the community. The problem was in the Proxy settings so below is a description of how to access the screen and what it should read.

In settings select

Network

connections -you will be asked if you want to continue, yes.

 

your screen should then read as follows

 Set name - giffgaffWAP

Home URL - http://giffgaff.co/mobile

Bearer - GPRS

Proxy - off

Address - 193.113.200.195

Port - 80

Linger time (sec) -90

DNS - off

DNS 1 - 0.0.0.0

DNS 2 - 0.0.0.0

Access name - giffgaff.com

User ID - giffgaff

Password - ********

 

it won't work for everyone but it may save a few people a lot of hassle . Good Luck :smileywink:

Re: Samsung Ch@t - GT-S3350

I've had the same problems, so i've changed the proxy from "on" to "off". I keep getting the error message "Service Unavailable. Retry?"

 

any help would be much appreciated :smileyhappy:
