Have flashed the firmware using Odin and 512 PIT from this thread no problems.


My internet is not working.

Entered APN details manually for my network, all correct, green light for selection, no display on the screen for the internet network. ie H, 3G

Applications like the Market indicate I am not connected to the network.

Should I reflash the firmware.

I got JG5 from via rapid share as wuala was to slow.

What network are you on and is it bill pay or prepay?
I had this issue with mine on an O2 Ireland prepay sim and I removed the proxy server details and instantly the 3G/HSDPA symbols started to work!

I'm on Three in Sydney Australia.

The phone only just released here on the OPTUS network.
Their 6 applications were riddled through the phone.

As it was unlocked I bought it and was using it on Three network with the APN details for that network entered.

This last Firmware is not working for me with regards to Internet so am thinking I might have to reflash the firmware JG5.

If that still doesn't work I will flash JG3.

Anyone else have an ideas other then that.?

Thumbs up

Um rather embarrased here.

I had a spelling mistake in my APN details.

All is working as it should.

I followed the instructions on this thread and it worked great! Cheers guys! It seems faster from the outset.

I am on O2 in the UK.

XWJG5 runs much better, now I'm actually liking this device much better then desire. It's stable fast and plenty of memory, there are still occasions when it lags but no way near as much as with the previous rom JF3.
GPS seems to work probably not as well as it should but fortunately I don't us gps too often.
Overall a huge improvement!

Update, My previous post is a false alarm.

The Exchange Calendar sync works fine, it's my Company Exchange that screw up. (I need Calendar from Exchange, that's 1 of the reason I get smartphone, it's essential+must have feature for me)

I did learn a trick on this, before the Exchange Admin fix the issue, I have a work around to sync my outlook (which is my Exchange client) calendar from my PC to Google Calendar via Google Calendar Sync, and I have my SGS hock up and pick up Google Calendar instead, it works. But not straight forward because I have too many events for last 2 years. I need to delete the old event in Google Calendar to make it work.

PS: however anniversary and holiday sync is ok.

i tried install touchdown (for exchange) it works to sync Calendar, Contact, Emails. but of course lack of integration with the Android Calendar.

My experience this noon,
1. Install and configure touchdown - successful
2. touchdown start sync email and contact (auto start once configuration is done)

3. I try to sync calendar, no luck
4. reboot and re-sync calendar, start to see events in my calendar sync to SGS

5. Tried my luck to switch on the defaul exchange program to sync calendar, notice that the Calendar sync works, but it sync until end of Jun (today is 21 July)

Not sure why.
