Samsung S i9000

I brought my Samsung home with me from Europe which is unlocked and although use my iphone for Fido I'd like to switch over.


The issue I'm having is connecting to the APN...when the SIM goes it is does pull up a fido APN but even though it shows connection it is not going thru...does anybody have any settings they can share to set it up? I'd love to use it as it makes my iphone seem as functional as a Motorola brick from the 1990's...

let see now....


Samsung Galaxy i9000 European version...I am assuming that you have verified that it supports fido/rogers network bands


GSM : 850/1900 ( voice & data )

3G/3G+ ( aka UMTS ) : 850/1900 ( voice & data )


if your phone does not support both band....dont blame Fido/Rogers if the connection is a little shaky....


As for APN settings :


Fido Internet


homepage : or whatever...( i am assuming your browser support full html rendering like iphone )

apn :

username : fido

password : fido

APN type : default or HTTP

port : 9201, 9202, 9203, 80 , 8080 ( try one )


Fido MMS


homepage :

apn :

port : 9201, 9202, 9203, 80 , 8080 ( try one )
