Woa !, Randomly a few days ago the phone seems to have working DNS
lookups my only guess is Virgin have updated the name of their DNS
server, or have uploaded something to my phone to set it up.
Now Java games work !, for Java games goto
Old News and howto set internet up
Many believe it is just not possible to get on the internet
with this phone unlocked, many have tried.
But with a NEC e616v unlocked and using Virgin
you can (other operators not tried BUT SHOULD WORK)
Why does it not work for most people, it doesnt resolve DNS names !.
Okey heres how:
- Set the APN Address
- Network Setup
- APN 3
- Enter 0000
- EDIT "APN address"
- to goto.virginmobile.uk
- Restart the phone.
You now should have 2 bars at the top
To Test the internet:
Press the internet key -> 3 dot key -> Enter URL http://22.214.171.124 ->
And Theres Google !
Making the Internet Useable
To try and get around this im thinking of a clever website which grabs
another site and modifies all URL's in it to point to itself but with
the link as a parameter. YET TO BE FINISHED, il post an inital ver asap
For the moment you just have to ping the address you want on a
pc and enter the IP into the phone to access it (doesnt work where virtual
servers etc are concerned)
Also Java, I attempted to get any java
program but every program I tried comes up application error, I think its
trying to contact 3 with a web address or simular and so not working. So no Java,
if anyone has any ideas I wanna know. :)
