    I recently got a new SIM card (same provider, Telkomsel, but for a different area code in Indonesia). The settings are supposed to be automatic, and I do indeed have a "Telkomsel GPRS" under "Mobile networks" > "Access Point Names".

    The 3G on the old SIM worked pretty well, without having to do anything, but this one gets only rare and short-lived connections to the net.

    I've rung up Telkomsel a few times now, and they're supposed to be fixing it soon, but it's a few days and I'm getting impatient. One of the help line people suggested manually entering a new access point, but the info he gave me was a bit confusing:
    Now, in my settings, I don't have "homepage" or "IP". I do have "Server", MMSC, MMS proxy, MMS port, MCC, MNC. I've experimented a littel bit, with no luck.

    I've been googling, but can't figure out for sure where "homepage" goes (maybe MMSC), or whether IP is the Server, one of the proxies, or something else.

    Any tips appreciated!
