    Hi All

    I am quite new to all things Android. I have a Huawei X5 which here in Australia I use with AmaySim and everything works fine. However I am travelling OS soon and am trying to set up a TravelSim in it for cheaper calls, sms & data. As suggested by the support team at TravelSim my APN settings are as follows:

    Name: mydroid (my phone said I had to give a name here)
    APN: send.ee
    Proxy: (not set)
    Port: (not set)
    Username: (my phone number)
    Password: (not set)
    Server: (not set)
    MMSC: (not set)
    MMS proxy: (not set)
    MMS port: (not set)
    MCC: 248
    MNC: 01
    Authentication Type: (not set)
    APN type: default

    I have data enabled and data roaming enabled.

    TravelSim have asked me to change the Authentication type to NORMAL however under authentication type I see 4 radio button options which are:
    PAP or CHAP
    none of which are selected at present. There is no option to select authentication as "normal"

    I have had endless emails with them & suggestions from them but nothing is working yet. Am taking off overseas in a few days & getting desperate. Does anyone have any ideas?

    TravelSim say everything is set up and working fine on their end.

    Hi ufoundlou, I've just had a look at TravelSim FAQ's and wonder whether you have followed their instructions?

    [FONT=&quot]How do I call someone from my TravelSIM?[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]The Golden Rule: [/FONT][FONT=&quot]Always dial the full international number no matter what country you are calling from, or what country you are calling to.[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]Step 1[/FONT][FONT=&quot] Dial the number you wish to call in full international format.[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]Step 2[/FONT][FONT=&quot] Press the call button[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]Step 3[/FONT][FONT=&quot] In a few seconds your phone will ring[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]Step 4[/FONT][FONT=&quot] Answer this call[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]Step 5[/FONT][FONT=&quot] You will hear a recorded voice that gives your credit balance and then you will be connected to the number you called.[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]Hint: [/FONT][FONT=&quot]When calling someone in the same country as you, always dial as though you are calling from outside the country.[/FONT]

    [FONT=&quot]I've never used their SIM but they say all calls start with dial numbers 372.[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]When I visit Australia (Qld) my 2 Degrees SIM from NZ works fine. It automatically swiches between Optus & Telstra depending on signal strength. I don't have to alter APN's.[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]From Huawei U8800 User Manual:[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]7.1.1 Checking the Network Connection
    1. Touch > Settings.
    2. Touch Wireless & networks > Mobile networks.
    3. Touch Operator Selection or Access Point Names to check the network
    Your mobile phone will automatically read the access point of the SIM card. For
    this reason, do not change the parameters of the access point; otherwise, you
    might not be able to access network sources. :eek:

    [FONT=&quot]I have 2 U8150 and 1 U8800 X5 and I've never had problems with SIM cards.[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]I can install 2 Degree SIM card and swap to Vodafone SIM card with out any troubles. Hope you get it sorted. Neil. ;)
