Internet and MMS APN settings

Since I wanted a smartphone that wasn't a Blackberry or an iPhone, I went with the HTC Desire Z and had it unlocked for the Fido network.  I guess I still have to change my settings as I'm not getting internet (but phone and text works great). So far it's asking for the following:

 

Name

APN

Proxy

Port

Username

Password

Server

MMSC

MMS proxy

MMS port

MMS protocol

MCC

MNC

Authentication type

APN type

 

What values am I to fill in for all these fields?

Re: MMS/APN settings for non-Fido phones

How do I enable both APN settings? I seem to be able to select only one option

Hello Scampbell,

 

  Welcome to the community!

 

  What do you mean by both APNs? If you're referring to the non-LTE APNs, only the fido-core-appl1.apn really needs to be enabled. The MMS APN is automatically selected when MMS are being sent or received.

 

  On the other hand, if you're referring to the LTE APN, there is only one APN required.

 

Hope this helps Smiley

 

Cheers
