O2 Settings - UK

10 posts in this topic

Hi all

Just got the qtec 8500 today and there are no Internet/mail/msn setting in it at all. I have found them on the forum, but when I enter them in the phone I just get an error message telling me that the settings *can not be saved*. ;)

Think I must be missing something, or doing some thing in the wrong order...? :)

Any Help?

Thanks....

Liz

Are you installing them as a cab file?

If so you'll need to software unlock your device before you can do it.

No I'm putting them in manually. Everything is working now - except for MMS ;) and THAT I just cant figure, no matter what settings I put in.

Not even thought of that yet! :) Still finding my way round the phone (and messing with MMS settings...humnahumnahum..) I'll look in to that next......

Thanks for reply

Big Fat Sad "NO" :(

Have tried everything and all I get is...

(Forgot exact message) but along the lines of

This operation cannot be completed via the current connection. Do you want to close current connection?

Press *yes* and phone tries to download ...

Then...

*failed*

But this will not beat me! I *will* get there.

Not that anyone sends me MMS messages :) (!!) but it just annoys me it wont work ;) :D

as I am not on contract or probably never will be thhis is the best i can make of what I feel are the correct settings for contract please compare them to your own first. also if you phone o2 customer services and tell them you have a XDA IQ they will help you manually install the coorect settings in the right place so if the menus are the same you can get set up that way.....

as for not recieving any MMS messages from your friends get them slapped and tell them youo want more sending a funny jpg or gif always brightens peoples day.

goto start settings connections

hit GPRS menu and select add.

GPRS Internet service

Access point: mobile.o2.co.uk

Username: o2web or mobileweb

Password: password

GPRS WAP service

Proxy (name: port) = 193.113.200.195:9201

Type = wap

User name = o2wap

Password = password.

next open MMS messages and select options.

select account options sellect mms

tick all boxes except reject all messages.

Thanks Conan, those are the setting I have so I'm now hoping that when 02 activate MMS I will be up and running....

I'll be sending MMS messages to all and sundry (just for the hell of it) when I get it working! ;) They'd better send some back :D

I'll drop by and let everyone now how I go on asap..... :)
