Using a non T-Mobile HTTP proxy

277 posts in this topic

Has anyone actually contacted T-Mobile about their sh1t slow proxy's? They may not even be aware there is a user issue...

Anyone care to try:

195.221.155.57:3128?

Combined with the 4.2.2.1 and 4.2.2.2 DNS settings, makes the web faster than it's ever been for me (on GPRS at least).

Are there any restrictions using this proxy?

yep - nice and fast for me :-)

What's that proxy, Paul? - are we likely to get kicked off it?

'Academie d'Amiens - Education Nationale'

Basically, a university in Amiens, France - so yeah, good chance of being kicked off.

The difference seems really noticeable to me... so maybe I should set up a HTTP proxy?

Other than the fact we probably shouldn't be, no, even directpush etc. seems to work!

There's one at Brunel University in the UK too, at 134.83.144.3:80, but I fear as that is going over port 80, it'll still be mangled by T-Mo's system... not sure tho.

If anyone fancies trying that one, could be even better?

As with the earlier proxy are there any restrictions on Direct Push? That's one of the main uses for my phone so losing that just ain't happening...

OK - posts crossed :D

Thanks Paul.

Well, if this proxy server business is the answer to our current problems, then I for one will certainly stump up for Plus membership for our own proxy to use.

Keep digging Paul . . . :D

Can we not just add the proxy server details to the current connection by editing rather than create a whole new connection, and then edit it again to lose the proxy details if it goes belly up?

Keep testing and reporting back people!

Remember, use the custom DNS + the proxy server above, and let me know what performance boost you see (if any of course).

No, for some bizarre reason the default connection doesn't allow you to add a proxy. :D

At least not on my device! :D

Umm... I added it directly to the default connection!

Ok. My connection is flying at the moment using the French proxy, and direct push also working fine.

About time we got some help from the French for a change :D

Any French mods out there feel free to delete this and kick my butt :D

Any non-Plus members that would sign up to Plus for a dedicated UK based proxy?

Definately.

Its always going to be better than anything Tmob are likely to offer.

(Would have to work with Direct Push of course)

- Click the 'Proxy Settings' Tab

- Click 'This network connects to the internet'

- Click 'This network uses a proxy server to connect to the internet'

- Click Advanced

HERE YOU NEED TO ENTER THE PROXY DETAILS

For test details, i'm using the PlanetLabs proxy with IP 194.80.38.242 on port 3128. It's only suitable for test however, and might not give a true respresentation of speed improvements with a better proxy. Running one on a home or hosted machine would be one option.

- After entering the details, click 'OK'.

- Ensure that in the top drop down box your new network is selected.

- Disconnect your existing connection

- Try browsing! You should get the PlanetLabs welcome page first, then you should be able to browse.

Paul,

Do you enter this into the HTTP proxy bit?

I probably would but I'm waiting to see if the new Vodafone plans on 1 Sept have a decent data bundle before I buy my v1605. I'd have taken the plunge long ago if only T-Mobie had any coverage in northern Scotland. :D

Yes, click HTTP, then enter the ip address as given.
