Hello everyone
This is a first time post from someone who often reads the forums but has never posted before. I have a Legend and usually have only used it for phone calls and texts ( as I also have a wildfire supplied thriough work and use that mainly ) I wanted to try and use its internet capability but have found that because i bought it from overseas that there are no settings on it. has anyone else had this issue and how did you go about fixing it. I am currently on 2 degrees netwrok

Have a look in setting> wireless and network> mobile networks> Access Point Names to see if there are any APNs for 2degrees.  If not go here and copy these into your phone - make sure you keep the formatting the same (capitals and simple letters are important!).

If you've already got APNs for 2degrees there, in the mobile networks area check that the 'use packet data' area is checked.
