Hi there

I have a Samsung Blackjack2 smartphone running Windows 6.1

I reset the phone this week due to conflicts with software, but in doing this I have lost my internet connection settings.  I have a vodafone contract and can't find the settings on their site to get this running again. They don't provide support for this model.

It was running fine on the net before I reset it. Can anyone help me the internet settings?

Just create a new connection in the connections tab (in settings).

Add a new modem connection
Enter a name for the connection: VFNZ Internet (or anything you want)
Select a modem: Cellular Line (GPRS, 3G) (or similar)
Access point name:

leave user/pass/domain/etc fields blank.

I still can't get this runnning..

Do I do this under GPRS connections or PROXY connections

I've done it under both and no response from Internet Explorer. Says no connection available.

Under PROXY settings, it asks for CONNECTING FROM and CONNECTING to. Do you know what to put for those?

Appreciate the help
