I'm learning as I go with this, and 2 days in I've hit a brick wall.

Rooted my Samsung Galaxy S while runnning Android 2.3.4.

Was so happy that i didn't brick it.

However, I have lost my 3G/GPRS access and can't seem to get it back.  My phone is with Telecom.

I've tried enabling the 850MHz frequency but it doesn't seem to save and every time I go back into that menu it is unchecked again.  Is that the frequency we even use here in NZ? I have been following this guy's advice but having little luck.  http://androidforums.com/samsung-galaxy-s/258859-how-enable-850mhz-3g-network-frequency-your-samsung-i9000-galaxy-s.html

Hopefully somebody else has had this issue here before specific to NZ, hope you can point me in the right direction.

What method did you use to root your phone

What modem are you using (is it Telecom compatible)

Have you checked your APN settings

Edit: Can you make and receive calls (is it just data that's dead)




I'm not a complete idiot, I still have some parts missing.

Thanks for the reply, yeah I checked my APN settings, I believe they are correct:

Network Mode - Auto (GSM & WCDMA)
Network - Telecom NZ 

I used Odin 3.1 and an "XXJVP Complete Rooting Package" to root the phone.

I presume the modem is just the stock modem that comes with the phone, I'm not sure on how to check this and if it is compatible with Telecom.

I can make and receive calls, just no data.

I only rooted the phone really just to see if I could do it.  Now I have done it I think I will try Darky's ROM but I would like to get to the bottom of this data first.

I'm not with telecom so i'm not sure which is the best modem to use, hopefully someone will jump in soon with that info.

But i'm pretty sure you just need to flash the correct modem and you'll be all go again.

Have done that and now at least it lets me save the setting of 850MHz band, but still no connection.

Seems like I'm on the right track here and some progress is made, so thanks for your help.

Just going to take a little break now before my head explodes  Laughing

It could be a Dalvik cache issue too so you might need to wipe it. Do you have su access to install clockwork or something? I rooted a SGS 2 nights ago and it wouldn't accept calls so the solution was to clear caches, re install the rom, clear caches and presto (which is what did on my phone and should have remembered for this one too). I know that Darky's 10.2RE and 10.2.2 both work on the telecom netowrk as its what I am running

It says no items.  Should there be items?

Have a look here, and put in the Telecom settings so that they are identical to what is listed.

Once you have them in and working go to the Android Market and get APN Backup and Restore and save your settings for next time.

when people say "have you set up your APNs correctly" this is what we mean

there should not be "no items" in there. you need to add the APNs (as posted above) so the phone knows where to get its data and MMS from.

punch those in and ill bet you will start smiling again. almost as much as me seeing as i just got home with a new 8.9 galaxy tab in my hands :D
