I have a samsung gt15510. I cannot connect to the internet, facebook, etc, and gps whilst outside or travelling around. I have tried everything, any suggestions?

When your inside do you use wifi or 3g, and do you get a decent signal, especially from 3g.

It is possible that your phone has lost the connection settings for your network.

When in the UK my phone has presets for O2, Orange and the other networks. Earlier in the year I took it to the Caribbean on holiday and it would not connect to the internet when I put a local Sim in. In the end I had to hop on a PC and get the WAP/GPRS settings from the network's website.

This might be the case with your phone, have you tried entering the mobile connection settings manually?

If you are getting good reception from 3G then you should be able to access the internet. Is data network mode activated? Have a look under settings wireless and network. It may be best to talk to your mobile hone provider. I assume that you do have mobile data with them.
