Internet not working?

[ Edited ]

Getting internet set up on your phone can be a major pain.
We’ve got internet guides that show you how to get it set up. But let’s face it, it’s not the easiest process & most nod off before line 4.

We’ve found a service that we hope will make it way easier. We want to test it & make sure it does what it says on the tin.

Will you give it a try & tell us what you think about it?

 

Here’s what you need to do:

 

  1. Follow this link
  2. Complete the three steps
  3. Wait for the text message (or for some phones the step by step guide) that'll sort everything out for you.

If this does not work for you, check out @dalyer's excellent post here for more help. You can also tell us what went wrong with Tweakker at this link.

 

What we would especially like to know is:

 

  • What phone you're using
  • How many text messages you received
  • If it worked full stop.

 

Thanks for helping us out. 

 

 

If you have any mates on 48 who are stuck without internet, send them here.

Hi Denise,

 

I've tried 3 times and I'm not getting a text message from the tewaker so just wondering what I do now?

Re: Internet not working?

Yeah - I tried it to see if it could configure my Huawei Ascend G300 U8815 (running Android 2.3 Gingerbread) and never got any text. I tried several times. I also tried my Vodafone Smart 858/Huawei U8160 but it doesn't seem to support automatic pushed configuration for that device so just listed the manual steps. In both cases I know how to configure the settings manually or using the Tweakker APN Android app but I was just curious about if/how the online configurator worked. I raised a support request with 48 support but no clear answer yet. I'll post back if/when they can explain/fix the issue.

 

Hope this helps.

Re: Internet not working?

Thank you for your reply..Do I just sit and wait now on someone to get back to me or is there anything I can do..?

Re: Internet not working?

Try the Tweakker Apn app from the google play store or apple store and see if that works. Or try to configure the settings manually using the relevant guide for your phone in the main internet settings thread.

Hope this helps.

Hi Bronagh - can you post back with details of your phone make and model so that it can be added to the list of phones that don't seem to work with the online configurator right now please? Thanks.

Did you try the link that I posted above? 

Both the online configurator and, if that fails, the manual settings?

What make and model of phone do you have?

If you have configured the settings correctly and it still does not work then do you have a data allowance as part of your membership or add-on?

 

Hope this helps.

Some questions that may help with the process of elimination...

 

Are you 100% sure that internet access is via the carrier network is working and you don't happen to be accessing the internet via wifi? (Apologies if that sounds dumb but it can be confusing for some people...)

How did you configure your settings - e.g. using the online Tweakker configurator, the Tweakker Android/iPhone app, manually etc.?

Can you post them here please?

Double check your APN Type setting - usually it should have something like "*" or "mms" so that it works for MMS/picture messages.

Can you send MMS/picture messages? You will need some credit for this as it costs 30c per MMS. I had a problem whereby I could receive but not send MMS messages and I went through three SIMs before I could get it working.

If you still cannot get it working contact 48 support for assistance:

Hi Denise,

 

I have a Samsung Galaxy S3 mini. I've tried manual settings as well and that doesnt seem to be working either. You have to be able to provide us with something other than these options? When we've paid for the service obviously we expect to be able to use it? Thanks. Smiley Happy

Re: Internet not working?

If the online configurator, the Tweakker APN app and manual configuration don't get your data working then you'll have to contact 48 support (see my previous post) for assistance. Just to remind you - I don't work for 48 myself.

 

Hope this helps.

Same thing for me with my Huawei Ascend G300 - said it sent the provisioning/configuration SMS but I never got it. I tried it several times but no joy.

 

What phone make/model do you have so I can pass it on to 48 support on the ticket that I have open on this issue.
