Qtek 8500 T-Mobile UK GPRS / MMS settings

2 posts in this topic

I have a T-Mobile contract and use a Qtek 8500 (which they don't support). I'd previously set up all the GPRS and MMS stuff before, but neglected to write down the settings ;)

I had the occasion to update my ROM to the latest Qtek version today (3.6.251.0) and of course wiped all my settings... Cue time to start trawling the 'net to find the appropriate settings again. After what seemed like a monumental amount of effort (there seemed to be a lot of conflicting websites), I collated all the relevant info and thought I'd post it here in an effort to spare someone else my pain.

GPRS Internet
Go to Settings -> Connections --> GPRS
Create GPRS connection called 'GPRS Internet'
Connects to: The Internet
Access point: general.t-mobile.uk
User name: user
Password: wap
DNS and IP blank


GPRS MMS service
Go to Settings -> Connections --> GPRS
Create GPRS connection called 'Picture Message' with following settings...
Connects to: WAP Network
Access point: general.t-mobile.uk
User name: user
Password: wap
DNS and IP blank
Goto MMS account and choose Menu --> Options --> Account options...
Then choose --> MMS --> Menu --> MMSC Settings --> Menu --> New
Name: Picture Message
MMSC URL: [url="http://mmsc.t-mobile.co.uk:8002"]http://mmsc.t-mobile.co.uk:8002[/url]
WAP Gateway: 149.254.210.135
Port: 8080
Connect Via: WAP network
Max Sending Size: 300k
WAP Version: WAP 2.0
Press Done and then select the new connection. Press Menu --> Set as default[/codebox]

These settings seem to work ok for me. Just remember to look out for the difference between the [b]t-mobile.uk[/b] and [b]t-mobile.co.uk[/b] in the settings above. If you mix them up or get them wrong (like I did), it won't work :D

Hope this helps someone :(
