[Q] Stock Data Settings Not Working
Got my Thrill last Friday 9/2. Out of the box, it wouldn't connect with data. Spent an hour on the phone with AT&T with no resolution.
I found the APN Settings menu and there was a MEdia Net setting. I noticed there was no user name or password entered. Since this setting was locked, I couldn't change it.
Instead I created a new setup called "Media Net" (lowercase e). I used all the same settings except I used the username email@example.com
and password CINGULAR1. Data worked fine after that.
I also noticed that in the APN settings if I set the APN Type to mms,supl (similar to the stock MEdia Net settings) that it locked the fields from editing. So I left this blank.
Anyone else have a similar issue? or find a different workaround?
I'm also disappointed that AT&T has locked us out of using the tethering/ mobile hot spot function.
Is the only solution around that to root the phone?
Coming from WinMo 6.5, the whole rooting thing is new to me.
