These are the settings I had to use to get all that working on Net10. They are all the same company and so perhaps some of these settings will help you.

mmsc - http://mmsc.cingular.com

mmsproxy - wireless.cingular.com

authentication type PAP

APN Type - default,supl,mms

Hope this helps

Can any body help me here? Do I need to reflash and install the Galaxy apps for them to work? Also the S-view does not fit in the window very well, is that something that can be fixed or is being worked on? thanks

thank for sharing that .. ya s-view is not going to be perfect .. the best solution is to buy a s5, and dont take that the wrong way in no way am i being a jerk, just there are some limitations, but overall the rom came out well :good:

p.s
hold out for the s6 :p tho i really liked my s5 while i had it :(

actually my s4 worked fine with original ROM. But I do like this ROM and so I might be able to let that one slide, you can still see it but it just isn't right.

I see also that safestrap is no longer in my app drawer so I can't uninstall it and update that way. Can I flash the latest version from recovery or how do I go about doing that?

I don't have the apk and my worry is that if I install a newer version over an older one. that won't hurt anything right?
You'll have to completely uninstall ss if you're on 3.72 looking to go to 3.75 a03. I would redownload from the thread posted above. If you forget which version you're on, you should be able to power down your phone, turn it back on, and the ss splash screen should come up. Hit the menu key to boot into recovery.

Did you flash the kernel modules? WiFi won't work unless you do.



Is it not letting you open the app, or is it not rebooting when you tap Reboot to Recovery?

I had to use odin and flash NB1 to get the phone to work again. I then made sure I did a clean install and reflashed this ROM and it booted up but now I have no wifi. I installed the ATT files, I also flashed NB1 modem files from safestrap and that did nothing. I thought there were tar modem files for Odin but I can't find them. thanks for any help

Okay, I found NB1 modules and flashed them and that got it working

I see that my phone has the option of video call but when I hit it, it starts and then stops. Is there something I need to do to be able to dial up a video call? thanks

Wow Sammy did a number on the S6, no removable battery and the worst part is no SD card. Did you see the price of a 128gb model? I store a lot of videos on my device and chromecast when away. Been with Sammy since the S2 but have to think again with this one. I have the S4 and the S5 and was planning on getting the S6 and giving up the S4 and using the S5 as the backup. Will have to reconsider now. GF makes the S4 like a S5 and is great.
