Finding where to put the settings in

Setting up new APN settings isn’t particularly common so the area we need to work on is buried a little deeper in the handset than other settings.

Starting from your homescreen:

  • Go to the main menu/applications list.
  • Press Settings.
  • Select Wireless and networks or More settings
  • Press Mobile networks.
  • Check Use PacketData/Mobile Data to ensure this is ticked
  • Tap Access Point Names

Adding the settings to the handset

Now we need to create a new data connection. To do this, press the Menu key and select New APN. You are now presented with a range of fields in which you can fill in the details for your mobile network data connection. Complete the fields in the list with the data below:

Name - Internet

APN - everywhere

Proxy, Port, Username, Password, Server - Please leave blank

MMSC - http://mms/

MMS Proxy - 149.254.201.135

MMS Port - 8080

MCC - 234

MNC - 30

Authentication type - PAP

APN type - If you have choices, select internet+mms, if you see a keyboard enter *

Right, it’s time to save the settings and check they’re ready to go. Press the Menu key and tap Save to store the new data connection on your handset. Press the field next to the new Internet option you’ve created to activate the data connection – you should see a green dot or tick appear next to it to show it’s enabled and ready to go.
