Top forum this!! I hope you guys can help me. Please!!!
I've been mucking around with my new SF for about a month now. Flashed it with a few differnt roms and themes, Unlocked it etc and all has been going just fine. I did all of this with the Orange PAYG sim that was included. I had used up all the credit on that so I thought now it's time to swap out the orange PAYG sim from my regular sim & install it in the blade.
Alas, I have not been able to get a 3g connection at all using my Tesco Mobile sim Calls work o.k., as do texts, but I can't sync with google or get internet access via the browser or the market app. The Tesco sim works just fine in my SE W890i. Internet works just fine with it?? It's a Tesco Mobile 1 month (Rolling Contract) sim
The APN settings I am using are as follows:-
Name: Tesco WAP
Server: - not set
MMS Proxy: 184.108.40.206
MMS Port: 8080
Authentication type: PAP
APN Type: default (you type default)
These are taken from this post number 18 by Merlin 617 (thanks Merlin617!!!) from this link:-
I have also tried changing the MMSC too :- http://mmsc.mms.o2.co.uk:8080 (I lost all connections with that setting) And tried changing the password to tescowap, but nothing seems to work I did a reboot with each change to let the change in settings take effect.
I was using JJ9 & then Flibbles newish ROM (8a) but I have the same problem with both ROM's, so it must be something in the APN settings somewhere.
Can anybody please help me out with this? I've searched all over the web & have not found a solution. Even tried contacting Tesco's, but they just gave me the same setings as I have listed above, accept the NAME: which they told me to change to:- Tesco GPRS WAP, but that didn't make any difference either.
I have since topped up the Orange PAYG sim with another £10 worth of credit (Since I had completely ran out) and with the Orange sim back in, everything is working o.k. again i.e. I have internet access etc!!
