Angry O2 Sim in HTC Magic


A few months ago, I got an upgrade for a new phone, and my mum is looking to have my old HTC Magic.. She has an O2 Sim, but the HTC Magic is from Vodafone. We thought we would need to have the phone 'unlocked', but after we put the O2 Sim into the Magic, it became apparent that 'unlocking' would not be necessary. The phone started up as usual. However, their wasn't any signal.. After going to Settings -> Wireless & Networks -> Mobile Networks -> Notwork Operators and selecting 'O2 - UK' we had full signal. We where connected to WiFi, and we didn't want to use much/any data, because her tarrif doesn't come with any data usage..

We only bumped into a problem when she got a text from a friend.. When she replied, it wouldn't send the message, despite having full signal and being connected to 'O2 - UK'. I had a look on the internet ( Google ) and found a lot about APNs.. I set up one for MMS, but still couldn't send any messages..

Does anyone know the latest fix for this?

Thanks in advance!

You need to set up the phone's APN settings:

Press 'Menu'.
Tap 'Settings'.
Tap 'Wireless Controls'.
Tap 'Mobile networks'.
Tap 'Access Point Names'.
Press 'Menu'.
Tap 'Add APN'

Now key in the following settings:

Name: mobile web
APN: mobile.o2.co.uk
Username: web
Password: password
MCC: 234
MNC: 10
APN Type: default

Press 'Menu'
Tap 'Save'

Press 'Back'.
Press 'Menu'.
Tap 'Add APN'

Name: O2 MMS
APN: wap.o2.co.uk
Proxy: http://wap.o2.co.uk
Username: o2wap
Password: password
Server: http://mmsc.mms.o2.co.uk:8002
MMSC: http://mmsc.mms.o2.co.uk:8002
MMS port: 8080

APN type: mms

Press 'Menu'

Keep tapping 'Back' until you're back at your Home screen, then restart your phone. Should work.
