Hello people


I purchased an Omnia 7 the other week. Loving it too. I have it running on 2degrees, and i get a 3g symbol up the top but i cant seem to connect to the internet. Is there something in need to change in the settings?? Any help would be cool. Cheers

Check your APN settings. Just about the only thing you need to get internet working is to configure an APN with the value 'internet'. Everything else can be blank or default.

Don't know WP7 at all, but should be under Data network connection settings somewhere.

The only options it gives me are:

APN

Username

Password
