Nokia 206 - Error with Internet connection (Error 005)

I just bought a Nokia 206.

I can't seem to connect to the internet using the "Internet" option in the menu.

I also can't create or sign-in when I use the "Nokia Account" option in the settings menu.

 

 

Here are diagrams describing my problem.

 

1- The "Internet" method:

 

Menu>Internet>Wikipedia

 

"Creating secure connection"---------Progress bar---------

 

"Error.

Error establishing secure connection. Check coverage, security and date settings on the phone. (005)"

 

 

2- The "Nokia Account" method:

 

Menu>Settings>Nokia Account>Continue

 

"Preparing account"-----------Progress bar-----------

 

"Operation failed. Try again."

 

 

 

However, I know the internet is working somehow, because I can search for apps and access the "Nokia Account" option, when I go through the "Store" option in the menu.

 

May I know how to fix this problem? Thanks in advance

Have you check the date/time of your phone? If you are in the wrong month or year, that might be the reason. see below

No, it's still not working.

The time and date is correct. Even with the "Auto-update on Time" option enabled, it's still not working :(

I haven't downloaded any Apps yet. I tried searching for "Opera" in the "Store" option in the main menu, but it couldn't find any results.

The "Internet" option in the main menu, is provided by default. I checked the details, it's a Nokia Xpress browser, version 2.2.0.0.36.

I don't even know if my Nokia 206 is a Smartphone, or something less.

Because you still have Nokia Xpress Browser and not Opera Mini, please, continue there…

Found this thread via an Internet search. Because others might find this thread as well, however the situation changed since May 2013, I remove an old post of mine and posted the updated answer (above). Hopefully, this helps someone.
