Nokia C6 Connection Problem

Nokia C6 Connection Problem

Hi There,

 

I experience the following problem:

 

I Set up internet connection with 2 Connection Points:

1) WLan at home

2) GPRS.

 

If I only use the wlan at home (internet is configured with only one way of accessing which is the wlan), internet connection is smooth and easy. Piece of cake.

 

If I only use the GPRS, even at home (internet is configured with only one way of accessing which is GPRS), everything very smooth and easy indeed, pece of cake but a lot slower than WLAN (which is normal).

 

The problem rises when combining. F.E. of I use the WLAN at home, I leave the house and I want to reconnect elsewhere, The device asks me to choose a connection Type. I Choose internet and the C6 automaticly detect the absense of the WLAN network and triens to connect through GPRS. So far so good. But no connection becomes available. The device reports that the connection can not be made. If I, then, open Maps first (which searches for GPS), the problem is still there. If I open en close a few times Maps, suddenly GPRS becomes active and other applications can use GPRS also. If, after 1 successfull connection to GPRS I try to reconnect to GPRS, it still works as a charm, als long as I do not connect to any WLAN.

 

When I get an incoming call when using GPRS, the phone freezes.

 

I contact te reseller which adviced me to update the phone's software. I did so and now am using the newest version with none of the problems solved.

 

Any Ideas?

 

The application I use the need internet are: Snaptu, Internet Browsing, De redactie (news reading software) Facebook, Foursquare, ForeacaWeather (which on GRPS always gives connection error 10).

 

Many thanks!

Re: Nokia C6 Connection Problem

bro jonathan:
after you change connection, try to change destination:
setting - connectivity - destination - internet.

in internet, you should change first priority with your current use,the wlan you use, should be first priority..

Re: Nokia C6 Connection Problem

My Wlan is set as the first priority internet connection. Both the GPRS and the WLAN settings are stored under:

settings - connection - destinations - internet. I tried to put GPRS in another destination (for example WAP) which dind't work as well. No solution so far, but thanks for the input anyway. Has anyone another clue?

 

Many thanks!

Re: Nokia C6 Connection Problem

It can't be so that whenever I leave the house and want to connect to the internet, I have to chane priorities between GPRS and WLAN? For Example when I leave the hous i give GPRS priority 1 and WLAN Priority 2 and when I come home again I have to change it again. Kind of a strange way for a phone to manage connections. I understood it would be possible for the Nokia C6 to use both WLAN and GPRS/3G seemlessly the one after the other without the need for the user to change priorities and settings all the time.

Re: Nokia C6 Connection Problem

Hi,

 

This kind of problem i have faced once.

This is a irritatating problem, i know b-coz it asks several time for the connection,

 

Like Voting and asks for Confirmation several time  :smileyhappy:

 

I don't know what i did exactly for this, But now i'm not facing this problem.

 

I think its Home screen problem.

or mail setup.

 

If you r running(setting up) any net conecting application on Home screen Examp Skype,E-mail,facebook.....

 

 

or this might be the major cause->

 

Setted up the E-mail(mail box).

 

Check it out on Home screen and Mail box setup.

 

-Thanks,

Thangad.

Re: Nokia C6 Connection Problem

I was also having the same problem of continuous connection. But I tried to stop by going to email setting and synchronisation reduced the retrieval schedule and it had worked. Just give a try. I think it will help
