Just got my phone back after more than four months of it being stuck in the repair shop for camera issues. The net result was that they eventually just replaced the entire motherboard and case - the phone I got back wasn't the phone I dropped in. Not that that bothered me - the case was in better nick than my old one, and everything worked - just had some data loss to deal with.
The point, though, is that not only were all my settings lost, but the guys at the shop took the opportunity to install Belle onto the handset as well (which is not yet officially available here in Australia). Since I've had it back (the last 6 or so hours of fiddling with it) I've yet to be able to get any of the additional apps that require internet connectivity to work - Social, Ovi store, Email, the Weather app from Beta Labs - nothing. I know that the internet is working on it, since the main web browser will access the internet. I don't have wi-fi to test it on, so this is all going through 3G (Telstra, if it's relevant).
I honestly can't figure out why it's doing this. Do I have a faulty unit? Or is this some kind of externally imposed 'punishment' for people accessing Belle before it's officially released in Austraia? Or are their legitimate problems with the OS that mean it doesn't yet fully integrate with our carriers? Or am I just doing something stupid and not setting the phone up correctly?
As frustrating as it will be, if it is just a matter of waiting until an official Australian Belle release comes around, I can handle that (I've gone 4 1/2 months without the unit at all, I can wait a couple more without email and facebook apps), but if there is a solution, I'd like to know about it, similarly if it's a faulty unit... well, at that point I'll probably just give up and downgrade to an N9 (I like my big fancy 12mp camera, though ).
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Forgive me but I no longer have a belle device so this is from memory:-
Try going to settings-Connectivity-Internet Connections-Internet
Menu > Settings > Conectivity > Settings > Network destinations > Internet - longpress to reveal options for particular access point.
Would suggest that you use the mark as solution button so that people easily know this has been solved and doesn't need further help.
