    Should this be moved or copied into the Sticky thread setting out APN settings?

    :( Hmm, the MMS settings arent working for me. The internet has been fine, but I cant send or receive MMS's. I have triple checked the details here...any thing else I should check out or try? I have a simplicity contract with O2.

    You're totally right. Will do a bit of research and get back to you.

    Been searching these for ages and you wouldn't believe it! I found working settings here on this forum!! lol Thanks to Jleagle.

    Follow this and type in the settings and your MMS should be working as mine works great now!

    http://androidforums.com/nexus-one/37742-faq-getting-your-internet-work-o2-mainly.html

    Read further on down though as there is advice on using 'Handscent.app' to resize images etc so that they can reduced in file size for sending using O2.

    Remember that I am also using an ex-orange phone on a simplicity contract.

    Goodluck!

    Im confused? The settings look the same as the ones above...and are incomplete...

    Also, there is no mention of resizing photos...do you need to do this then when sending MMS on O2?

    Here are the settings for PAYANDGO O2 UK

    I have successfully used these on a milestone with working full size MMS, this is the result of about a years worth of switching handsets & trying every list of settings listed on the net....:eek:

    Requires 2 lots of settings:


    NAME : O2 UK
    APN : wap.o2.co.uk
    PROXY : [LEAVE BLANK]
    PORT : [LEAVE BLANK]
    USERNAME : o2wap
    PASSWORD : password
    SERVER : [LEAVE BLANK]
    MMSC : http://mmsc.mms.o2.co.uk:8002
    MMS PROXY : 193.113.200.195
    MMS PORT : 8080
    MCC : 243
    MNC : 10
    AUTHENTICATION TYPE : [LEAVE BLANK]
    APN TYPE : [LEAVE BLANK]


    NAME : 02payandgo
    APN : payandgo.o2.co.uk
    PROXY : [LEAVE BLANK]
    PORT : [LEAVE BLANK]
    USERNAME : vertigo
    PASSWORD : password
    SERVER :[LEAVE BLANK]
    MMSC : [LEAVE BLANK]
    MMS PROXY : [LEAVE BLANK]
    MMS PORT : [LEAVE BLANK]
    MCC : 234
    MNC : 10
    AUTHENTICATION TYPE : [LEAVE BLANK]
    APN TYPE : [LEAVE BLANK]


    Here are a few tips if you have problems with MMS

    1: If you have a T-mobile sim, insert this & send a picture message, then switch back to your O2 sim.

    2: If you have an iphone sim insert this then request settings by sending the word "mms" to 1010 - you will get an error saying only available on iphone, insert your regular sim back.

    The MMS issues are not with Android, they happen because there is a white list of supported handsets at O2. if youe phone is not one of they sell/support they will resize your pictures to a tiny thumbnail size.

    There is a APN mms app that tricks O2 servers into thinking your phone is a Nokia or Iphone, I will did it out & upload soon.....

    Wow...sounds like youve been hard at it. So are these in addition to the web browsing settings, or should I replace what I have for both with the ones youve detailed??

    If you are on pay as you go then these are the only settings you need.
    I can confirm these as working 100% for me, any more settings would just confuse & possibly not work.
    These are all you need for PAYG. For contract or simplicity you may need different settings....

    It's starting to get really annoying now....eh Magicmat??

    I can have either MMS or Internet working but not both at the same time. Also noticed that when you put the 'mobile web' settings in a selection button appears beside it that goes green once selected. Can anybody shed some light on this as the 'O2 MMS' settings don't bring up one.

    It just seems strange that I can have both MMS and WEB working but not both at the same time. Been playing around with the order that the settings are input into the phone but it doesn't make any difference.

    Nonetheless, will keep searching.....

    One thing is for sure, if you revert back to the settings at the top of this page, 'O2 MMS' definitely work for sending and receiving. When my phone receives an MMS the mobile widget on my phone turns on to receive it and picks up an 'H' connection, then switches off again.

    At long last!!!!!!!!!!!!! It works!!!!

    I now have one set of fully working settings for both MMS and internet. I thought they would not send my MMS to begin with but I had to turn the 'Mobile Network' setting on and it worked straight away.

    This worked for me so you may as well copy what I did.

    1. Delete all of your existing APN settings and restart your phone.
    2. Input these APN settings:

    NAME: O2 UK Postpay
    APN: wap.o2.co.uk
    PROXY: <Not set>
    PORT: <Not set>
    USERNAME: O2wap
    PASSWORD: password
    SERVER: http://mmsc.mms.o2.co.uk:8002
    MMSC: http://mmsc.mms.o2.co.uk:8002
    MMS: PROXY 193.113.200.195
    MMS: PORT 8080
    MCC: 234
    MNC: 10
    APN TYPE: <Not set>

    Press 'Menu' and select 'Save'.

    3. Now restart phone again.
    4. Switch on 'Mobile Network' and test it. Should work perfectly!!!

    As mentioned before, in order to send/receive large images you may have to use 'Handscent' but I have not tested it yet.

    Hope that cheers you up Magicmat!!

    Thanks!!

    Makes it a perfect more complete phone for me now! Even more glad to see the back of my iphone 3Gs.

    Have posted it on all the sites I searched through looking for it so nobody should have a problem finding it.

    Goodluck!! I'll repost it here just to be safe :p

    Nice going, Razputin. Does this config supersede any of the others in the APN Setting sticky? If so let me know and I'll make the necessary changes.

    Here is the MMS .APK I mentioned earlier.

    This was originally designed for the Hero, then adapted to the Nexus one.
    Not had chance to test it yet as I am currently waiting on delivery of a Hero...

    No reason why it shouldn't work though...
    :D

    Slug,

    These settings do supersede all other 'O2 Contract MMS/WAP settings' so would be great if you could delete all the other ones.

    MetalMickey,

    Will give this app a go and see what happens.

    Ta.

    METALMICKEY,

    When I install this app it has asked to overwrite an existing part of the phone software.

    Can you tell me exactly what this is and what it replaces?

    Cheers
