    Unhappy Samsung T404g browser won't work

    I recently purchased a refurbished T404g phone but I cannot get the browser to work no matter what. I don't want to send it back for the warranty just yet. Are there any ways to fix this so the browser can work?

    Does it give any message when the internet fails to connect? Can you send a picture message or receive one? If you can't send or receive an MMS and your internet doesn't work I would suspect something is wrong with the gateway it's using for the data connection but that's just a guess. It could just be you don't have a data connection, most of the GSM phones show an E next to the signal bars when it has a good data connection.

    It says "request failed" after a minute or so of connecting. I have not tried sending a picture message yet, so I don't know if that works. If I'm not using the browser, it has a blue E, but when I try to connect it has a red E (with a small blue border). Not sure if that makes a difference.

    The E is behaving normally. It turns red when the data connection is active.
    The tutorials show that.

    Which SIM do you have, AT&T or T-Mobile?
    Are you certain you're in a strong location for that carrier (and not roaming to another)?

    I have AT&T.
    Yes, I'm in a strong location and not roaming.

    Odd. Sounds like something is mis programmed (gateway maybe).

    I'd try TF in Miami Monday morning (I don't think they are there today).


    My wife has a T301G that wouldn't connect, but it was shipped with a T-Mobile SIM which was replaced with AT&T.They
    didn't change all the settings when the SIM was swapped.
