    Enabling Internet Access on the Samsung Smooth (AKA: SCH-U350)

    This is what I did to enable web access on the Samsung Smooth:

    1) I had previously recovered the Service Programming Code, and changed it to 000000. I changed it to 000000 by entering the settings and tools menu (Menu, 9) , pressing * and entering the recovered SPC, then pressing 5. Enter 000000, OK, and the 000000 when prompted. (I don't know if this is necessary, but I did it, so I'm including it).

    2) Download and install Samsung PST, and the U350.dll file. As mentioned elsewhere, Google is your friend here (hint, you may have to open a free account on some other forum to get the dll file).

    3) Connect the phone to the computer with a USB cable.

    4) In Samsung PST select the SCH-U350.

    5) Select the Settting tab.

    6) Press the Select All button.

    7) Press the Read From Phone button.

    8) After all the data is read, the phone resets, turn it back on.

    9) In the WAP2_Browser Requirements section, change the following:

    a) Domain Server Primary: ppcgw1.vzwreseller.com
    b) Domain Server Secondary: ppcgw2.vzwreseller.com

    10) I also set my Home Url to www.google.com, but that doesn't always seem to work for some reason.

    11) Press the Write to Phone Button, and wait for this to complete.

    Web should work now.

    For reference The other settings on my phone are as follows (I didn't change any of these):
    All Ports are 8080
    the HTTP Auth Usernames are both my Mobile Identification Number as found under Settings and Tools/Phone Info/My Number.
    HTTP Auth Password is vzw in both cases.
    UAProfile URL is http://uaprof.vtext.com/sch/u350/u350.xml.

    In other threads, the LXL port is set to something different than 8080. I did not do this.

    Regards,

    Hans

    Looks good. Would recommend posting up screen shots if you could since it will help other users out tremendously.

    The software versions I used are as follows:

    Samsung PST: V1.0.002

    I didn't change the LXL port, it doesn't seem to be necessary. In another post I read, someone had changed it, and that *didn't* work, so I didn't change it when I tried this.

    As for screen shots, I'll try to do some as time allows. Maybe someone else attempting this procedure could do the screen shots as they go along, and repost my instructions with those included. For that purpose, anyone can consider my directions as licensed under Creative Commons, non-commercial, share-alike (this means you can use my work in your posts, you have to allow the same for others for the combined work, and you can't sell the combined work).

    Regards,

    can't edit domain server settings?

    Thanks for the easy instructions (and the thread about recovering the programming code). I was able to read everything from my phone and turned the phone back on, but when I go to the WAP2_Browser_Requirements section, the settings for the domain servers are highlighted grey and it won't let me change them. I'm using version 1.0.015 of PST if that makes any difference. Thanks for any help you can give me on this!

    I'm sorry to have taken so long to reply. I can't comment on your issue other than to recommend you try to track down the version of Samsung PST that I used. I didn't notice the same issue you reported on the version I used. I forget where I downloaded it from, but I think it was on the first page of Google links when I searched for Samsung PST.

    Thanks for getting back to me. It was my fault. I'm still learning about this stuff and it turns out I was using PST LITE. I installed the full version and now it's working perfectly. Thanks again for posting the easy tutorial!

    Technically I am sure it could be done, but from experience it would be way over most of our heads. You would have to rewrite the firmware for the phone and I dont see anybody doing anything like that for free. My suggestion would be to buy a phone that has a browser you like and see if you can make it work on Page Plus.

    Thanks for the reply PC-Tech. From what I can make out, part of the problem is that this phone does not support java, which is a bit of a stumbling block in terms of making easy upgrades and goes back to what you are saying. This is such a great phone otherwise (get great reception with it)

    Another similar option would be to go with a smart phone where you can change the browser. I know that there is more than one Windows Mobil browser available (though I'm not a big fan of Windows Mobil). I will get either a WinMo phone or a RIM if I ever get the time to deal with a new phone for exactly this reason. More than likely I won't find time until something better enough comes along to motivate me to find the time (currently I use a Palm TX via locally available open WiFi hot-spots).

    As for the Samsung PST, I think you can find that by searching for the version noted in one of my previous posts in this thread with Google. I seem to remember having to register at the site that I downloaded it from.

    Why use this convoluted software + cable method vs. the easy breezy no software needed method?

    I can't find the thread so I C&P it:

    Easy-breezy Internet on Samsung Smooth SCH-U350 - NO additional software required! We got this cheapy phone to test PP service for my husband, and I was too lazy to order a cable from the Internet or download complicated software, so after several hours of web searching I found out how Internet can be enabled on it just by pressing some phone phone buttons and changing hidden menus!

    --------------------------------------

    Enabling Internet on Pre-Paid Verizon Samsung Smooth SCH-U350

    To make necessary changes, first we need to enable hidden menues.

    Go to Menu, press 9 (Settings and Tools), then press #
    A "User Lock" screen appears. Enter all six zeroes: 000000

    Here we get into hidden System Info menu.
    Select 2 (Port Map) and click on it. In this menu press *
    Another "User Lock" screen appears. Enter 0103219211

    Now we are in a Param Editor menu.
    Click on 2 (Userprefs Editor).
    The first item there will be Hidden menus. Change 0 to 1, click OK and exit the menu.

    Now hidden menues are enabled and we can change Internet settings for Page Plus.

    Go to Main Menu, choose 1 (Media center). There highlight Mobile Web (4) (don't press on it!) and press #
    "Enter Phone Lock Code" screen appears. Enter 4 last digits of your phone number.

    Now we are in the Browser settings menu.
    The settings should be the following:

    1. Primary DNS (only options 3 and 6 should be changed)
    1. HTTP Proxy Port: 8080
    2. E2E Port: 8080
    3. LXL Port: 443
    4. HTTP Username: (your phone number - don't change it!)
    5. HTTP Password: vzw
    6. Primary DNS: ppcgw1.vzwreseller.com

    2. Secondary DNS (all settings same as above except for option 6)
    6. Secondary DNS: ppcgw2.vzreseller.com

    3. Primary IP (no need to change anything)

    4. Secondary IP (no need to change anything)

    5. Common Settings (no need to change anything). Make sure that option 1 Home URL is http://homepage

    That's all! Enjoy your internet!
