Hi, i have a sharp gx15 that i unlocked recently. my problem is that i can't get on to my wap/gprs. my mms is working fine so sending pics/tones and receiving is ok. on the top left hand side of my screen, next to the signal strength sits the red letter g and it's permanent and won't go away. my wap settings are ok. every time i connect i get a message that says: HTTP Error: 400 Bad Request. i am lost. could anybody help on this one please. i have tried everything

thanks

Was the handset purchased in NZ and that G means its just attached to the GPRS network and the GPRS modem is on all the time.

Well that means the handset was not locked so I am confused how you unlocked a handset that was not SIM locked to start with.

Sounds like to me the handset has a firmware issue and needs to be looked at by the sharp service agent cause that G should not be on the screen all the time.

I bought a 5MB software application that enabled me to unlock my phone to all networks through a usb cable.

I would get the sharp service agent to get the correct firmware back on the handset but you will find they may charged you. You don't need the GPRS modem on all the time only when its in a data session!

Mobile fone repair or accord customer care. Just look them up on whitepages.co.nz and the issue may not be covered by the handset warrenty. That will cost you

;-P sounds like one of those ones that just fry your phone!!!!! oops.


Seriously. do a "master reset" and re-setup the phone using the standard settings. it might just work.

Master reset will not bring back the old firwaren but anything is worth a go once. Lesson learnt here though.
