APN Settings for MMS and Internet

I recently took out a new EE connection and my new phone -  a Lumia 920 - has been able to make and receive calls for the past few days and has just this morning been given the ability to send and receive texts. the only thing missing is the internet APN settings which are currently blank. Does anyone have them so I can enter them manually? Trying to call EE support is a nightmare as three times I have waited for x mins then get a message saying 'we cannot connect your call' then cuts me off!

 

If EE were kind enough to post the APN settings for MMS and Internet on contract then you could save yourself a lot of hassle.

Re: APN Settings for MMS and Internet

APN settings are in the Help Section of this website. 

 

For ease, I've copied and pasted them here.. 

 

  • Name = Internet
  • APN = everywhere (case sensitive)
  • Proxy = Leave Blank
  • Port = Leave Blank
  • Username = eesecure
  • Password = secure
  • Server = Leave Blank
  • MMSC = Leave Blank
  • MMS proxy = Leave Blank
  • MMS port = Leave Blank
  • MCC = 234
  • MNC = 30
  • Authentication type = PAP
  • APN type = default
  • APN protocol = IPv4
  • Bearer = Unspecified

Re: APN Settings for MMS and Internet

I too am having problems accessing the Data on my Lumia 920, and cannot ever get in contact with EE CS (new account)....

Are you sure these are correct for the WP8 UI Mobile Settings?

 

As on my Lumia 920, you have 2 APN Settings to add...

 

Internet APN;

  • APN
  • Username
  • Password
  • Proxy
  • Proxy Port
  • IP Type

MMS APN:

  • APN
  • Username
  • Password
  • WAP Gateway
  • WAP Gateway Port
  • MMSC
  • MMSC Port
  • Max MMS Size
  • IP Type

And without putting in values, especially in MMS; you cannot save APN settings.....

 

Am wishing I never moved now as currently I cannot use my Smartphone for what it's make for......

Re: APN Settings for MMS and Internet

I'm having exactly the same problem - I've tried using the settings posted here:

 

http://help.ee.co.uk/system/selfservice.controller?CONFIGURATION=1016&PARTITION_ID=1&secureFlag=fals...

 

but they appear to be wrong as I'm still getting the 'Get Media Content..' in my message inbox - and when I press it, it vibrates, makes a sound but keeps displaying the same message with no picture.

 

This is an absolute nightmare and really should be sorted. Any chance of the the correct settings?

Re: APN Settings for MMS and Internet

It's often the case that you need to send an MMS first, before you are able to receive them. Have you tried this?

Hey 2005fredp,

 

What daveuk says is correct - give that a go and if you're still having problems, drop me a line via private message and I'll get this looked in to.

 

Thanks,

 

Charlotte.

Hello Charlotte,

 

I too am having problems with my Lumia 920. I also have followed the settings for MMS (my internet works) to the letter that the EE configuration page stipulates but to no avail.

 

Help!?

 

Regards,

 

Chris

Re: APN Settings for MMS and Internet

It shouldn't matter which EE brand you're a customer of, the same APN settings should work.
I'm on T-Mobile but my APN settings are all 'EE'.

 

If you use the following it sould be fine:


  • Name = [whatever]
  • APN = everywhere (case sensitive)
  • Proxy =
  • Port =
  • Username = eesecure
  • Password = secure
  • Server =
  • MMSC =
  • MMS proxy =
  • MMS port =
  • MCC = 234
  • MNC = 30
  • Authentication type = PAP
  • APN type = default
  • APN protocol = IPv4
  • Bearer = Unspecified

Re: APN Settings for MMS and Internet

Let's be honest, this **bleep** just does not work. Since I've moved over from T-Mobile I've just had issue after issue.

 

I've got a Nokia Lumia 800, it had picture messages working until today. Now once again I get the 'Get Media content now(10kb)' link, which produces no media content. I used the Network Setup app previously to resolve the problem after no help from EE. today they make me soft reset my phone twice, and now I've created new APN manually with the settings given by them over the phone which still don't work.

 

I've explained that I can't send picture messages as it just won't let me send. "Can't send: Media content in this message"

and that people can't send me any picture messages either. How **bleep**ing hard is it resolve without telling me to do a hard reset on my phone? It's obviously a network issue and not a phone issue.

Re: APN Settings for MMS and Internet

I'm pretty sure this is flagrant breach of the contract signed between myself and EE. If you can't fulfill your side of the contract then the contract has been broken by you.

Re: APN Settings for MMS and Internet

Have you tried going into an EE store and seeing if the staff are able to help at all?

 

Also, are you sure it's a service issue and not a faulty handset?

Do you have a second handset you could try the SIM in?
