I got my new Samsung Jack yesterday, and I have successfully connected it to two wireless networks - my home one and the one at work. I can load 'www.google.com' just fine, but going farther than that is impossible. First of all, it says 'opening...' FOREVER, and when things finally pan out (at speeds way slower than the EDGE we have in this area, I might add), all I get is an alert that says 'ERROR: Unable to load because the connection was lost. Please check connection settings and try again later.'
I have read about disabling the proxy, but that doesn't seem to be an option on the Jack. Under 'settings' and 'connections' and 'proxy', all I see is AT&T WAP with a little lock symbol next to it. Clicking anything past that gives me the message saying these settngs are pre-configured and cannot be changed.
Is my Jack already broken, or am I just doing something wrong? Please guide me in the right direction.
Solved! Go to Solution.

The proxy is only used when you use WAP connection. In the IE, go to menu->Options->Connection, make sure the connection is set to 'The Internet', not 'WAP Network'. Other than that, you may have compatibility issues with your Jack wi-fi and the wireless router you connect to.
To unlock those GPRS settings and proxy settings, use the file explorer to open the application called UAMgr.exe under Windows folder. This app has an option to unlock all those read-only settings.
If you don't have data plan, I'd either delete all the GPRS settings or modify them so that they won't connect. At least, you should modify MediaNet connection from 'Internet' to any other value so that programs won't use this connection for default internet connection.

I set IE to 'the Internet' rather than WAP or whatever it was already on, and that appears to have worked.
Yay for me! I love my Jack.
I've got the PDA Unlimited plan, so it's okay that they automatically try to do WAP.
