Android - MMS

Hi,

 

I am currently using a smartphone running Android 2.1 and am unable to send and receive multimedia messages.  From a quick search, it looks like I may need to set up the APNs. 

 

Does anybody have the correct setting for this for mms?  And do I also need to set up the internet APN as well?  I've googled it, but have found different versions that have not worked for me. 

 

Any help would be appreciated. 

 

Thanks! 

 

P.S. I currently do not have a data plan but am able to access my wifi.

Re: Android - MMS

Ok, after spending some time with a couple of fido techs over the phone, directed me to do some setting changes to APN, than, they did a couple of resets to my service, and no luck.  So I did more digging around on the internet, tons of trial and error with different combination of APN settings, and finally went to these settings that made things work:

 

1 APN only

APN:  internet.fido.ca

Proxy:  blank

Port:  blank

Username:  fido

Password:  fido

Server:  blank

MMSC:  http://mms.fido.ca

MMS proxy:  205.151.011.013

MMS port:  blank

MCC: 302

MNC:  370

Authentication type:  blank

APN type:  blank

 

other droid2global users can try it (^^)

Thanks silentbuddha!  I already did do a search, and used the settings with not a lot of success.  I will try again and maybe post my settings here.  Do you know if I am required to create BOTH APNs for MMS?

Re: Android - MMS

Hello acheung,

 

Welcome to the fido technical community,

 

I suggest you create 2 APN. And you delete any others APN setup on the phone. You should also call our customer service at 1(888)481-FIDO (3436); to make sure you do not have any blocks set to your account for sending MMS or Browsing the internet.

 

Please create the following to APNs:

 

APN1 [this one will have the radio button beside it]
Name: fido internet
APN: internet.fido.ca
Username: fido
Password: fido
APN Type: default
(all other fields blank)

APN2 [this one will not have any radio button beside it]
Name: fido mms
APN: mms.fido.ca
MMSC: http://mms.fido.ca
MMS Proxy: 205.151.011.013
APN Type: mms
(all other fields blank)

 

I hope this helps,

Re: Android - MMS

Hey man, I just got mine not too long ago, I simply went on ebay and picked an unlock service for motorola on verizon. This will be a bit more expensive than the other unlock services, I paid about $20. I tried using 2 cheaper ones, but both of them had to refund my money cuz they were unable to unlock it. best of luck
