HTC Desire - Internet Settings



I can no longer access the intenet on my HTC Desire.

When i looked in the APN setting i only had the wap settings not internet, so i created the following as suggested on other posts but still no luck connecting.


Name: Vodafone Internet

APN: internet

Username: web

Password: web


Do you have any ideas why this is not working for me?

Re: HTC Desire - Internet Settings


Don't know if you've tried these yet (from the Help Centre) but it might be worth going through the full walkthrough guides listed on the help page below, just to check everything is in place:


HTC Desire WAP and Internet Settings


Failing that, if you can let the moderators know:


- How long the problem has been occuring

- What error message you get

- If you place your SIM (if possible) in another Vodafone device do you still have the same problem

Re: HTC Desire - Internet Settings

Hello there,

The below might only be helpful if the settings are 100 percent correct and you have followed redpages instructions above. Smiley Happy

If you didnt touch the settings in the first place and it just suddenly "stopped working" try checking out the sim card. You need to make sure that the two different aspects of the sim card are both updating on the network.
Try dialing in


Call this number as though you are calling a normal number, so just type it in and press dial or call. It will take a few moments ( as long as you have signal at the time) and then bring you a reply back. Two replies infact. The first one that you see (we are looking for a date and a time here - and there will be two entries) will be the "voice" side of the sim card, that should be -in a perfect world- updated first, the second one will be the "data" side of the sim card which should -again in a perfect world- be updated JUST a few seconds after the first one.

If that second one is anything more than 2 hours ago (from the current time) you will want to do a manual roam on the phone (this does not always work!) and check again. If the second date on the sim has not updated, give customer services a call and ask them to "reregister your sim on the network"

NB!! They will then do some fancy things on the network and hopefully force it to update. IF you do this please make sure that you are not calling from the phone at the time (landline on 08700700191) and you have the phone turned off (battery out of the phone!) while you ask them to do this. If you ask them to reregister the sim on the network with the battery in and the phone on it will stop the phone from working until you restart the phone.

Hope this helps.


ps. if you like, post the two dates and times - only the dates and times (dont put the other info you see on that screen onto the forum, as i think its unique to your number) and I can let you know if they are updated correctly.

example from my phone is below

CS : registered 05-dec-2011 21:31:29
PS: registered 05-dec-2011 21:31:33

you can see mine updated yesterday evening.

These are the wap settings and it looks like you have no proxy settings in there they need to be in there for it to work 

taken from Vodafones settings

Now the internet settings look ok 

But you can check on

But it looks like a wap problem to me 

If your not bothered about setting up a VPN network to a company then all you need is wap
