Hi!! Smiley Happy

 

I recently bought a Sansung S2 but the internet is not working though I have the £10 goodybag :/

 

This has happened to me previously before with a different phone and someone had replied with a REALLY LONG list to do and it ended up working. I was wondering if anyone knew the list for my Samsung S2??

 

Thanks in advance (I'm rubbish at explaining things) -.-

 

Please help!
