Galaxy S2 Running 2.3, and got the ST SIM, and the phone is off ebay, (AT&T) new, battery, stickers, the works, this thing was new. (I hope) any way, the voice works, then went to set up the APN and there is two entrys there, att phone and another one (cant remember) go into those and they are grayed out, cant edit, cant find a place to make a new APN either, read someware on the net, that it could be bad firmware, installed KIES on my laptop, and kies says my ver is 2.3 and the latest ver is 2.3 ?!? I was following samsungs website instructions and there was to be a pop up to have me install ICS, but I went and re-installed 2.3 ... no help
any ideas? when I have the t-moble sim in there I used to unlock the phone (I know I didnt need to do that) just one APN, and its editable, but still dont see anyplace to add/delete APNs is this a sim problem? and when I put my old rzr v3 att sim in there, it act justs like the straight talk sim ... grayed out, and not changeable
OH, forgot, you might have to delete the other APN, you can leave PTA alone.
Ah the menu Button ... dang, I am an idiot!
Now I want to figure out why KIES wont tell me to update to ICS, it says 2.3 is the most current version.
I heard about oden but this link says there will be a pop up telling me to update to 4.1.1
(hey, did I just hijack my own thread! lol)
Thanks again for your help, you made my day!!
http://www.sammobile.com and download the latest firmware, extract the file, get odin 1.85, put your device to download mode, run odin as administrator, click PDA, point to files that you extracted and start. Be inform that with GB, you have 784MB of ram, with ICS, you'll end up with 768MB. The Galaxy Note is worse, GB has 732MB, ICS will have 720MB, just so you know. Don't forget to do a FULL FACTORY DATA RESET after upgrade, I had lots of force closing, data reset gave me normal operating.
I upgraded both to ICS, went back to GB.
something you need to ask over in the android threads
I am new. Trying to figure how this board works. Is cooter55 a forum boss? Guess I will need to keep reading these threads. Hopefully I won't make the bosses angry if I help out in wrong place.
EZ guys, lets not let this get autta hand! lol
So I am too stupid to know about the menu button, so help a dummy out, which section here can I do some reading on this?
this link: .samsung.com/us/support/SupportOwnersFAQPopup.do?faq_id=FAQ00047325&fm_seq =51324
says I can upgrade via kies, but after scaning my phone, kies says 2.3 is as high as my SG2S goes (updated kies too)
but you were saying that ICS is more a problem than its worth?
the kies program and sammoble says 2.3.6 is the latest, but the above samsung link says 4.1.1 (ICS) is the latest, I have a SGH-i777 unlocked from att
maybe its a good idea to stay with GB until I learn the phone better, but I love to tweek stuff!!!
