    • Wireless & Networks ->
    • Mobile Networks ->
    • Access Point Names ->
    • *Hit the Menu button* -> New APN

    Corrections for Virgin – Internet & MMS

    - Double ‘&’ in title, should read “Virgin – Internet & MMS”
    - MCC needs to be set, should be 505
    - MNC needs to be set, should 02
    - APN type needs to be set, should be ‘default,supl’

      Seems like there are a few people that can’t get Optus related telco MMS going. Strange. I am of no help as I am with Exetel, so I have never had to deal with Optus/Virgin APNs.

      If you do get it working, let me know and I can update the site accordingly

    Hi Guys, I had heaps of trouble trying to get mms working on TPG (who say just to use the Optus settings from the Optus website) on my Motorola Milestone. I have just purchased a HTC Desire, inserted the same sim I had in my Milestone, and it automatically set up the APN’s for me? Anyway, here they are;

    Internet
    Name: Optus Internet
    APN: internet
    MMS protocol: WAP 2.0 (this setting only seems to appear on Android 2.1?)
    APN type: default

    MMS

    APN: mms

    MMS Proxy: 61.88.190.10
    MMS port: 8070
    MMS protocol: WAP 2.0 (this setting only seems to appear on Android 2.1?)
    APN type: mms

    Hope this helps others get their APN’s sorted!

    • http://ausdroid.net/ Buzz Moody

      These settings seem to work for Optus Mobile users also. Sweet, I shall add them now!

    • Net

      It’s still not work with my HTC desire, i can not get mms from optus anyway thank you for your help.

    • Tom

      Thanks Greg

      When I add in those APN settings the HTC Desire says the MCC must be 3 digits and the MNC must be 2 or 3 digits, it will not let you put nothing…

      This is the worst thing about TPG, they just don’t care for their clients, when it doesn’t work they just send you back to manufacturer and wash their hands of you

      i just got a htc magic and im with tpg. those things arent working at all and it says unable to connect due to incorrect apn setting even though i put exactly what was said here for the optus internet thingy … D:

        it’s alright, i got it all fixed. there was a problem with my plan and internet through my sim was not activated…

      Hello Greg,
      Thanks heaps,
      It really works for my HTC Desire.

  • Kelvin

    How come I followed Greg’s instruction, It show ‘G’ symbol instead of ‘H’ symbol? How to make it using HSPA?

    • http://ausdroid.net/ Buzz Moody

      That depends on coverage really.

      If you know you can get ‘H’ where you are:

      Dial: *#*#4636#*#*
      Select: “WCDMA Only”

      and see if it goes to ‘H’

    i cant get htc legend to work on tpg. i tried the settings mentioned and mobile internet and mms dont work. i can only use internet when i am connecting it to wi-fi.

    does anyone else have the same problem? many people have posted that they have the htc desire and magic, but do these settings still work for htc legend?

    • Peter

      have you sort it out? and make it work because I am having the same problem

  • Alex

    Hi guys, you seem to be quite cluey. I heard a rumour that if you have Desire HTC Telstra branded and you are using, say, Vodafone — the 3G will not work outside major cities, unless you “root” the phone and reset it to 8181 (instead of 8183 it is now). I don’t really care that much about the Telstra apps (which I would still like to get rid off), but the 3G out of cities — that’s just not cool, what if I’m following google maps somewhere?

    Just tried the MMS APN edit with Vodafone, seems to work! Thank you! :-)

    • http://ausdroid.net/ Buzz Moody

      That would mean the phone was triband (850MHz/900MHz/2100MHz) which I don’t believe it is. So changing it to 8181 won’t do much.

      Glad the APN worked :)

  • David

    Hi, I am going crazy. I have an i-mate jazzjam with Crazy Johns that I have been using to receive copies of my emails for about 2.5 years and it has stopped working. I may have accidentally changed a setting but for the life of my I can’t get it to connect to the internet. I have tried all the settings shown above but with no luck. Have rang CJ’s 3 times with no joy. By the way, what are MCC and MNC. Thanks for any help.

  • Flea

    Hey guys, nearly pulling my hair out with my HTC Desire on the Telstra network. I added the APNS as above and I connect to the internet fine however, I’m unable to send mms msgs! The error I keep receiving is:
    “Unable to send message. Retrying. Generic network failure.”
    Can anyone help?
    Thanks :)

    • http://ausdroid.net/ Buzz Moody

      I just updated the Telstra APNs. Try those :)

  • ReturnFire

    APN Type for Optus Internet APN has to be ‘Internet’, because when I left it as default it set it to ‘Internet + MMS’ which caused my MMS not to work because it was trying to use the same APN as the Internet.

      Have you tried the APN in the comment above you?

      If not, call Optus. They sell the Milestone so they have to make it work.

        Yes i have tried all the ones listed above, i rang optus and they told me to try something else and still does not work. I will call there technical help line when i get time. Any other ideas though? One of the above APN’s did give me the GREEN dot next to ‘optus mms’

    @Aiden

    I just rang Optus technical support and they got my Milestone working over the phone in about 15 minutes. Ring 1300 307 937 and tell them you have outright purchased a Milestone and need help to set it up. I had to remind the tech that they actually sell the phone, as it is very new to Optus.

    They will even send you a pdf with data for every setting on the phone.

    • Aysgarth

      ps

      I think they may have made a few setting changes at their end, so the only way to be sure is to ring.

    • http://www.robsofficetips.com Rob J

      Thanks Aysgarth
      I am sure I tried that combination of configuration, but the way you laid it out here made me double check every single field, and now it’s working. I went into every field, even the ones and hit OK. (Not sure if that made a difference, but it couldn’t hurt).
      I’m with TPG on an (as yet) un-rooted HTC Desire.

      • http://www.robsofficetips.com Rob J

        GAH!!!! Today it’s not working! What’s up with that. It was all fine last night, and I turned the mobile connection on and off a few times, and each time it connected fine. But this morning it’s not.
        Is it Optus? Is it this flakey? Please don’t tell me I have to go back to Telstra… that would make me a sad panda.

    Setting up a Galaxy S on Vodafone I found these setting worked:

    Name: VodaAU
    APN: live.vodafone.com
    Proxy: 010.202.002.060
    Port: 8080
    Username: blank

    MCC: 505
    MNC: 03
    Authentication type: Not set
    APN Type: internet + mms

    I had trouble following the instructions published on this site and applying them to my Galaxy S, since (a) I wasn’t sure how to enter multiple IP addresses for the proxy (looking at it now on my PC where the line doesn’t wrap I’m guessing you just separate them with a space), and (b) my phone wouldn’t allow me to leave the APN type blank. Guessing that the setting labelled Vodafone – internet should be internet, and the settings labelled Vodafone MMS should be MMS was… wrong. And (c) I had to reboot my phone once I’d applied the settings.

      thanks bro, you’re a lifesaver. I had all the settings right, just didn’t reboot my phone.

      How do you select “Default” for the APN Type. My Galaxy S only has radio buttons to pick from (no default) and you can’t actually type anything in.

      woops, just enter the two and see how you go :)

      • Louis B

        Hi

        How do you select “Default” for the APN Type. My Galaxy S only has radio buttons to pick from (no default) and you can’t actually type anything in.

        Thanks

  • johnf

    Can someone explain why I need these settings at all? I have a stock Telstra Desire, works just fine of course. Now if I were to put an Optus SIM in the phone I would assume it will work just fine, picking up the Optus settings from the SIM, the network or somewhere. [or am i wrong about this and I have to do some manual entry?] So if I go and root my phone and the Telstra settings get lost why won’t they just come back when I connect to the network or reinsert my SIM?

    • http://ausdroid.net/ Buzz Moody

      When you Root + ROM, you will more than likely lose your APN settings which is why you then have to re enter the ones above.

  • burkey

    I have more of a fundamental question… What actually are APNs? And why do you need an ‘Internet’ and ‘MMS’ APN? Or do you only need one or the other depending on your mobile plan/contract/number? I just don’t get it.

    • http://ausdroid.net/ Buzz Moody

      APNs allow you to connect to the internet/data via your carrier.

      There are usually 2: Internet & MMS as they both use data/internet.

      Without them you won’t be able to access the internet/data to browse the web or send MMS messages.

      • johnf

        Thanks, I might not have been clear, I know I need them but I don’t understand why they don’t get set from the SIM or somewhere apart from the ROM. Because at the moment I have Telstra APN settings in my phone. I am pretty sure the phone will just work if I change my SIM to an Optus or Three SIM card. I assume it won’t use my existing Telstra APN settings so they must be updated from somewhere or am I wrong and if I change my carrier I have to manually enter the new APN’s

        John

  • burkey

    P.S.
    And why do we need them?

    Thankyou.

    Hey Guys,
    I got a Galaxy S from Optus using it on Three(VHA)
    And I had to use the setting above plus:

    MCC: 505
    MNC: 06
    Authentication type: PAP

    Hope I helped someone out there.

    • Lewis

      Hi,

      i have my galaxy s from optus as well and i tried the setting above as well but not working. do i have to do the setting for both internet and mms?

      Cheers

  • Kai

    Using the single APN (live.vodafone.com) for Vodafone doesn’t work for me when attempting to download .apk files (no idea whether it works for others).. I’ve had to make live.vodafone.com MMS only, and add the old vfinternet.au one (internet only) to enable downloads..
    Just an FYI in case this is the case for anyone else..

  • Archphoto

    Well I too am having hell with Optus and their MMS settings.
    Tried everything you guys have listed and no joy.

    It keeps saying “Generic Network Failure” – not so bad that one of the WAP fixes works, but simply means I can’t receive MMS from anybody either. :(

    Anyone had some joy with their Optus settings?

    • Aysgarth

      Ring 1300 307 937 and tell them your woes, you may need Optus to alter your account at their end.

  • Joel

    The virgin settings work with my Nexus One, but the one issue I had was I could not access secure web sites (internet banking, virginmobile account etc) on 3G. With wifi on it was fine, so it’s not a browser issue. The browser would just display a blank screen. I removed the “proxy” and “port” numbers and left them blank and now I can access the secure (https) sites. Question is: do I need proxy and port numbers set? Is my data less secure/safe without those numbers set? Thanks

    • http://ausdroid.net/ Buzz Moody

      I don’t believe your data is any less secure if you don’t enter the proxy and port details :)

    • Amy

      Hey Joel, could you please assist! I’ve had trouble, alot of trouble setting up my N1 with my virgin internet? How’d you do it?

      • The Don

        Amy, use the settings above for Virgin Internet but leave the ‘Proxy’ and ‘Port’ settings empty. Mine works well now that I set mine accordingly.

  • neynK

    I have an HTC Wildfire and the APN for TPG doesn’t work for MMS.

    under MCC and MNC, you can not leave it blank.

    Im not sure if this is the same for other android users.

    Anytips on how to fix this mms issue?

  • http://arekphotography.blogspot.com/ Arek

    These settings worked for me on my HTC Desire on Three but they don’t work after I updated to 2.2 (FroYo)…

  • http://na GW

    Hi all

    I just set up my HTC Desire on TPG…and it works.

    Seems that where blanks in the set up above are shown you should be leaving the default numbers in the MCC and MNC areas.

    TPG set up for Internet as at 7-9-2010:

    Name: Optus Internet
    APN: internet

    • AEG

      hey, have you updated to froyo? if so what new apn settings have you used.

  • MB

    Is anyone having problems with data roaming on an HTC Desire FroYo? I can’t use the default browser for data, works with other apps though, e.g. facebook and market, but can’t get internet on browser. Have downloaded Opera Mini and have no problems getting internet. Issue with Opera Mini is it doesn’t have flash and need that. Can’t find Opera Mobile (which is meant to have Flash) for Desire model.

    • dgogoasa

      I have exactly the same proble for more than one week now, with DESIRE and froyo.
      I have no idea what’s going on nor what should I do.

      CAN ANYBODY HELP ? . . . .

  • drjoffily

    Hi all, I had the same problem to get my HTC Legend setup with TPG for data. After hours searching in the internet and seeing a lot of pleople with the same problem I logged into my TPG page and realized the GPRS is DISABLED by default when TPG creates your account.
    You need to login into your account and go to:

    TPG Mobile Services > View All Mobile Service Accounts > Mobile Service Control Panel and enable the GPRS.

    I hope it helps.

    the optus is not working on my desire…

    help pls..

    thanks

      You should put the “default” in the “APN Type” section of Optus Internet, not “internet” like they said !

  • Robert

    Hey all,

    just wondering if anyone can help please. I’ve got a HTC Desire on vodafone and last week the net stopepd working. it comes up saying ‘unable to connect to server’ if i load up facebook through the menu it works fine, but when i click the internet icon there is no such luck. i tried all the APNs and still nothing.

    i am also able to send MMS but not recieve, can anyone help please?

  • Brena

    Hi all, with Android when you add IP address for the APNs always ensure you insert the leading zeros for example if the IP address is 1.1.1.1 ensure you type in 001.001.001.001 so there are always 3 digits between the dots. Hope it helps!

    Coming over from NZ soon for a holiday and bringing an HTC desire, will need to find a SIM and get setup there. The provider I use here charges $30 per MB roaming. Daylight robbery LOL! Any recommendations on who to join with short term? Prefer prepay. Thanks!

    • SMC

      Adding zero’s doesnt seem to work for my MMS settings, there’s a trick to all this but it’s just having to find the time experiment.

      Virgin are fairly cheap, their data plans are good too and all the mad ppl are with Virgin 8)

      • Brena

        Thanks for your advice SMC! Will look up Virgin when I visit soon. Sorry my tip didn’t help.

  • http://radiobutton muzzaF

    can someone explain what a radio button is as reffered to in initial APN instructions

    • http://www.kiwitax.co.nz Brena

      A radio button is the selection buttons like you see on the web, where you can only pick one option in a list, looks like a list of small circles. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Radio_button

      • HTC A8183

        This is for the Telstra model HTC Desire (A8183) with an optus sim.
        Confirm model here. Goto settings, About phone, Phone identity.

        Like countless others i have seen on forums on the net, i could
        get the internet data working but not send an MMS.
        This is how i finally got it to work.

        You have to have MMS enabled FIRST, call optus to get this done.
        without this even if your settings are correct it wont work.
        That done enter the following Internet and MMS APN settings.
        The APN settings go here, settings, wireless & networks,
        Mobile networks, Access Point Names.

        ##-Internet APN-##
        Name: Optus Internet
        APN: internet (“yesinternet” may work hear also)
        Proxy: LEAVE BLANK
        Port: LEAVE BLANK
        Username: LEAVE BLANK
        Password: LEAVE BLANK
        Server: LEAVE BLANK
        MMSC: null (type “null”)
        MMS Proxy: LEAVE BLANK
        MMS port: LEAVE BLANK
        MMS protocol: WAP 2.0
        MCC: 505
        MNC: 02
        Authentication type: PAP
        APN type: default
        Once your settings are in, dont forget to press menu then save.

        ##-Optus MMS APN-##
        Name: Optus MMS
        APN: mms
        Proxy: LEAVE BLANK
        Port: LEAVE BLANK
        Username: LEAVE BLANK
        Password: LEAVE BLANK
        Server: LEAVE BLANK
        MMSC: http://mmsc.optus.com.au:8002/
        MMS Proxy: 61.88.190.10
        MMS port: 8070
        MMS protocol: WAP 2.0
        MCC: 505
        MNC: 02
        Authentication type: PAP
        APN type: mms
        Once your settings are in, dont forget to press menu then save.

        On the page showing your APNs you should have two APNs.
        Next to the internet one there should be a radio button or
        a round looking button. If it is grey then tap it and it should
        turn green. This is how your APNs settings should be.

        One note before the next step it looks like your mobile data or 3G
        connection has to working and on for MMS to work as once i had MMS working
        i tried to send an MMS with mobile data off and it never works.

        OK next step, send a test MMS and this first one must be sent to
        yourself i read this on the optus website and from an optus tech on
        the phone.
        But first confirm your internet data is on. Turn your mobile data on then
        do a google search to confirm your internet is working.

        That done try to send a picture via MMS thats what i did and remember send this
        first one to your self.
        If it worked your good to go send an MMS to someone else.
        If it didnt go over these settings i know it works mine still does
        i tried it again as i wrote this.

        One other thing sometimes i have trouble with the mobile data turning on.
        Once your MMS is setup and working, when you send an MMS the mobile data
        should turn on send the MMS then turn off I watched my phone do this.

        So you should see the 3G symbol display at the top of the screen.
        If mobile data doesnt turn on, then switch on mobile data manually.
        If that does not work I switch on Airplane mode and then switch off Airplane mode
        found here settings, wireless & networks. Then wait till you have a signal again.
        You may see a little “X” next to your signal strength until it finds a signal.
        When you have the signal turn mobile data on confirm it works by doing a google
        search and then try to send your MMS again.
        I believe there is a quirk with the mobile data coming on but can’t say if it is
        the phone or the android system or both.

        If mobile data still does not turn on reboot the phone.

        So there you go I have the Telstra branded HTC Desire model (A8183)
        by the way I bought it outright so it is unlocked, it has an Optus
        simcard in it and i can send an MMS.It is not impossible.

    Regarding getting Optus MMS and Internet working – I’ve found that I needed to use this configuration:

    Internet:
    * Name: Optus Internet
    * APN: yesinternet
    * Proxy:
    * Port:
    * Username:
    * Password:
    * Server:
    * MMSC:
    * MMS: Proxy
    * MMS: Port
    * MMS Protocol (Android 2.1+): WAP 2.0
    * MCC: 505
    * MNC: 02
    * Auth Type: None
    * APN Type: default

    MMS:
    * Name: Optus Internet
    * APN: mms
    * Proxy:
    * Port:
    * Username:
    * Password:
    * Server:
    * MMSC: http://mmsc.optus.com.au:8002/
    * MMS Proxy: 61.88.190.10
    * MMS Port: 8070
    * MMS Protocol (Android 2.1+): WAP 2.0
    * MCC: 505
    * MNC: 02
    * Auth Type: None
    * APN Type: mms

    This works on an HTC Desire. The main sensitivity seems to be that the internet APN is set to type “default” (though I’ve not tested switching the other configuration about). There’s also no auth type in my working configuration.

  • alexeiw123

    regarding the virgin settings, because MMS and internet are combined, when connected to wifi your mms will no longer work. (this is because android disables 3g data while in wifi range)

    There are settings for virgin internet that has seperate internet and mms which comes pre configured on CM6 for milestone, and this fixes that issue. they work fine on my milestone.

    I spoke to Vodafone and they said the problem is with my HTC, not them, even though I was able to send a mms last week. The Vodafone guy told me to get my HTC Wildfire serviced but I just got my Wildfire 3 weeks ago, it’s brand new! How can the problem be with the Wildfire??

    save it.
    Once you saved it you should see green dot (radio button) next to it.
    sometimes the radio button will be just blank, tap on it to make it green.
    powercycle your phone.
    Once its booted up, you should be all ready to use internet.

    GOOD LUCK.
    This is what i did on my HTC Desire and it worked very well for me.

    • Tom B

      Racheal. did everything they told me but no luck THEN checked then settings and accidently discovered, after sending numberous SMS, the HTC editor tends to add a space after words. SO went back into the settings and discovered that the “APN type: mms ” actually had a space so it was actually 4 characters. I deleted the space and everything worked. could be the answer to a lot of HTC problems = check that the settings don’t have extra blank spaces!!!

    just in case no one has updated this but to get the internet working on the HTC desire for Optus yes internet you need the following:

  • Weeble

    I’ve got a dell streak and even though I have no problems accessing the internet, I cannot send or receive mms. The settings listed at the top are all exactly how they should be except for the fact that I do not have an MMS PROTOCOL option. Any ideas?

    • Weeble

      update…have been on the phone to optus – all settings are fine, tried sim in another phone and mms worked – so the problem is with the 2.2 froyo :(

      • Dazz

        Same.
        Fml.

      • Dazz

        dude, any update on problem?

    • Tom B

      check that the settings you have put in don’t have spaces tacked onto the end.

  • Dude

    So ive gotten the optus internet and mms to work but you cannot have both on at the same time? what if i have the internet activated and i recieve a mms? please help

    • Dazz

      dude, do you have froyo update on desire with optus/soul?
      if so what apn did you use?

  • George

    I’m on Optus & now have Froyo 2.2 installed . I initially had problems with MMS, but by adding 202.139.83.152 in the Server settings under the Optus Internet APN it’s now all sweet! My APN settings are the same as for TPG Mobile above but now with the additional Server setting :)

  • George

    …actually APN setting for TPG Mobile should also include for MCC = 505, MNC = 02 & Authentication Type = PAP (same as Optus).

  • Clyde

    George do you also have separate mms settings

  • Clyde

    What phone do you own

  • George

    Clyde I also have separate MMS settings. I have a HTC Desire.

  • JAN IN OZ

    aaarrrrgghhhh!!!!!! Am I really so stupid that I just CANNOT set up my HTC Desire Android phone for MMS/Picture Messaging??? I bought this from Telstra which they ‘unlocked’ for me so that I could carry on using my Vodafone sim card. I’ve been back to Telstra and Vodafone, none of them could set up my moby for me. Have tried all the above to try and re-set to no avail. Can ANYONE please help???!!! Thanks.

    • Tom B

      Jan. did the same and got a wildfire through Telstra but am contracted to Optus. the eureka break through is spaces. the HTC editor sometimes puts spaces after words when typing in SMS. I discovered in the setting for MMS that there was a space after one of the settings (APN type: mms ) I deleted that space, checked the other entries for spaces and this solved the problem. so check the settings and deleted any trailing spaces and reboot.

  • George

    Have you tried the Vodafone settings (shown above as Internet but apparently is actually MMS) & also correct internet settings under Mohamed Meligy’s comments above?

    Hey Dazz I’ve got the froyo 2.2 and i have a HTC Desire. I’m still a little confused towards go to get the MMS to work simultaneously with the internet. I use the APN’s that are given in this forum

    • Tom B

      dude there could be simple answer if found in the setting, APN type: mms, that there was a space after the last letter, so the setting was actually 4 characters. delete any spaces in the settings and everyting should work

  • Dude

    Okay i’ve worked it out for all the froyo 2.2 htc desire users.

    The internet setting are as what said and you should have a green button on it.

    MMS setting will not have a green button seeing as its passively on. The settings are.

    Hi there,

    Please can someone pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaase help me? I am just about going insane. I upgraded my HTC Desire lastnight and now I can not connect to any internet! Wifi and/or Mobile Internet … Please help me?

    • Tom B

      use the settings given in this blog but be sure that there are no spaces at the end of the settings. HTC editor in SMS assists by adding spaces after the words. this can happen when inputting Internet and MMS settings and could be the cause of malfunction

    • http://www.itsfixed.com.au Clix

      Hi @Renee, did you get your settings working? Which mobile (SIM) provider are you with? If you’re with Virgin, try using the Optus settings…

      Re Wifi, it’s a bit more difficult because the router you are connecting to might reject the connection. Let me know if there is a problem still , and I’ll see if I can help out.

  • Renee

    I forgot to mention,,,my APN settings appear to be fine according to the feeds above. Does anyone have any idea what to do?

    Can someone help me please.
    I have a Samsung Galaxy Tab, bought from Singapore that I am using a Vodafone prepaid card in here in Australia.I can receive and send phone calls, but cannot access MMS or the Internet.

    I have tried the settings mentioned up in the thread but with no success. I have also had Vodafone technical on the phone and they have been unable to assist (happy to try and assist but with no positive result).

  • Susan update 3

    Finally got my mms to work on my Wildfire!
    I noticed that I could only send mms when my phone was connected to EDGE (an E appears in my status bar). This happened yesterday after I switched my phone off and on. The EDGE connection only lasted about 5 mins, during which I could send mms/pxt, after that I couldn’t send anymore and I got the usual ‘Generic network failure’ message.
    I’ve had my phone on ‘GSM only’(2G) the whole time and when I changed it to WCDMA (3G) yesterday, the problem went away!! Now my mms works!!
    Does anyone know why my mms only works on 3G network and not 2G? I’m with Vodafone by the way, and I’m not on a data plan.
    If I leave my phone on 3G, it should not download data since I’m not on a data plan, right?…

    • weeble

      Well this is interesting……when it was working, I was connected only to yesinternet, I now can receive and send mms but only if I change it to mms, what a pain that is…..but I suppose at least it works!!

    • http://www.itsfixed.com.au Clix

      Hi @SusanU3, MMS is a higher-capacity message type so it requires the extra capacity of the 3G signal. Turning on 3G will not cost you any $ if you don’t have a data-plan – it will only cost you battery life…

      Also having 3G on will not have any effect on your call signal (in case yr wondering ;)

    Telstra HTC Desire on TPG/Optus
    After a couple of weeks of trying all the different settings suggested and contacting both TPG and HTC (who each gave me slighlty different settings)I have finally got my Telstra branded HTC Desire to access 3G optus internet -and I am in Kiama on the NSW south coast.
    After re-querying HTC they said: “Since you have already tried the settings that we have provided and did not work, it means that your phone is not compatible with the 3g connection of your network provider.”
    TPG unhelpfully suggested: “For further assistance on your handset, kindly call your phone manufacturer” They don’t even mention the need to input the APN settings at all when you sign up.
    CRAP!
    The “simple” problem is that the HTC text editor (keyboard) includes a trailing space whenever you select an item. So when you type Yes Optus Internet there will be a blank space inserted after the Internet “t”. (Unless you backspace to delete it before you save it)
    I just deleted the trialing spaces and the 3g internet worked immediately – no rebooting or anything. Hallelujah?!
    All the anguished souls I have seen on various forums and at TPG trying to fix this and you can’t help but be amazed that the “Help” Desks at TPG – and particularly at HTC – you would think, don’t know that this simple action by the HTC software in adding a blank space is causing their customers so many problems. On behalf of everyone, thanks so bloody much for your “help”.
    Just to be clear, I have the Telstra branded HTC Desire A8183 model working on Optus 3G.

    the message from Dweebken is what I got when I upgraded my HTC Desire Telstra from 2.1 to 2.2 Froyo but then the weather app stopped working, so I changed the APN from telstra.iph to telstra.wap and all is good again.

    the telstra.iph is only for iPhones (I was told by Telstra tech)

    I forgot to add, I also added proxy: 10.1.1.181 and port: 80 at the same time, so I guess that helped as well.

    Hi, I’m not sure if this is what I should be looking at..
    I’m trying to connect to my wifi at home. My phone is about 10days old and about 6 of them the wifi at home worked fine. I used the Mcdonalds wifi once and ever since then I can connect to the wifi at home on my phone but as soon as I try to use anything on the internet it doesn’t work. It’s super frustrating seeing as it used to work and now doesn’t. 3G works fine on the internet, no problems. I called just about everyone and no-one can help. Can anyone here help me? Is it because I’ve got an optus sim card and I’m trying to connect to telstra internet?

  • gandtcomputers

    If you have an optus sim card then you will have to configure the apn settings to the ones above listed in the previous posts under optus internet/mms. settings

  • sgsOptus

    Went to 2.2.1 via keis on the SGS (non rooted phone)and had to change the settings as above.
    I made a new Optus one and it looks like it works fine, but still can’t get the mms to work.
    Have copied everything exactly, but I don’t have a setting option for…
    MMS Protocol (Android 2.1+): WAP 2.0
    Could that be the problem??

    Don’t have it for the internet setting either, but internet appears to work.

    Hi All,

    First time poster.

    I have a Motorola Droid 2 Global which I have not been able to set for internet. It is driving me nuts! Everytime I put the APN in it disappears.

    I downloaded and application called APN Manager which allows me to see it but I can’t get it to work. I’ve tried all the settings above and reset each time.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    • Jezza

      yo did you remember to save the apn after you entered the details?

      • http://www.philipgough.com.au Philip Gough

        yes of course, it disappears

    • kc

      your apn disappears because your phone is a CDMA based device (ie-its a verizon based device) which everytime it gets booted up it rescans for a CDMA based network (ie. verizon) then a GSM network. Since Aust runs a GSM based network, there will be no signal therefore APN cannot be scan

      • Susan

        I thought Aust runs both a GSM (2G) and CDMA (3G) based networks?????no??

      • http://www.philipgough.com.au Philip Gough

        I can make/receive calls and texts no problems and I have the phone set to GSM/UMTS only.

    by the way Susan, GSM is both 2G and 3G

    Hello all.

    A lot of time reading through the wealth of knowledge.

    After a week or so trying different settings that lurks around, I had given Optus Tech Help another go with a manual setup over the phone.

    Try this one. It does work on my A8183 (with Official_FroYo_2.10.405.2)

    The green radio button is not required on the mms APN.

    I was informed that these are the settings for HTC Dream.

    I’d think that the SMS type file may work. h##p://optusau.wdsglobal.com/mms

  • Kiernan McColl

    After a lot of fiddling around it turns out that even though the internet may work fine when just the internet APN is configured, and MMS might work fine when just the mms APN is configured, using both at the same time was the issue.

    The settings have to be perfect for both to work at the same time, and it wasn’t the MMS settings that were the problem, it was the internet APN it seems. I think the main issue I was having was the ‘APN type’ setting for the Internet APN.

    Here are the settings that worked with my HTC Aria (android 2.1 I think), they work for iiNet so should work with other Optus resellers too.

    Reboot the phone after changing these or it won’t do anything.

      Hi Kiernan McColl,
      First off you are a legend!!!
      I Have a HTC Desire HD with froyo 2.2 and am on TPG.
      your settings are the only ones that work so if you have a HTC Desire HD and are on tpg forget the setting the help desk have given you and input both the internet and mms APN setting that Kiernan McColl posted!!
      internet & mms both working.
      thank you so much!!!

  • David

    I tried all of these settings albeit to no avail. However I did give HTC a call and they told me that the settings vary depending on which country your handset was configured for (If you bought the phone online). Mine was set for an Asian market (No surprise) and these are the settings that worked for it for the Optus network:

    Internet:
    Name: Optus Yes Internet
    APN: yessinternet
    MMS protocol: WAP 2.0
    MCC: 505
    MNC: 02
    Authentication type: None
    APN type: default

    Optus MMS:
    Name: Optus MMS
    APN: mms
    Proxy: 202.139.83.152
    Port: 8070
    MMSC: http://mmsc.optus.com.au:8002/
    MMS proxy: 61.88.190.10
    MMS port: 8070
    MMS protocol: WAP 2.0
    MCC: 505
    MNC: 02
    Authentication type: None
    APN type: mms

    All other fields are blank for both Internet and MMS settings.

    Hope this helped!

    Can somebody please help me, i have just purchased a HTC Desire Z and i am with Vodafone, i have finally managed to get the internet working after many headaches but for the life of me i cannot get the mms to work, i have tried numerous amounts of settings posted on threads and also the ones on the Vodafone site but nothing will work, can any one shed some light or have any settings that i can try please please please………

  • Grunger

    Hi mate,

    Have you tried this website: tweakker.com? It has helped me when I was having trouble with my Desire Z mobile internet and mms.

    It might be worthwhile starting a fresh APN rather modifying an existing one too.

    cheers

    PS left you the same reply on the Whirlpool forum.

  • calkeat

    Hi Grunger,

    Thanks tried this and it didn’t work, still at a loss :(

  • http://www.facebook.com/bazzaduncan Barry Duncan

    Those TPG Mobile settings do not work sorry. Been trying to get my data connected and it refuses to connect using those settings. You appear to be missing MCC and MNC fields there too. Can’t have them set to nothing.

    • Test

      Guys.. Try the Vodafone settings as TPG resell Voda, not Virgin (maybe they used Virgin in the past??)

      • Jonty_q

        ?? TPG resell Optus. As do Virgin and just about everybody else out there.
        There are only three networks of note in Australia:
        1 Telstra
        2 Optus
        3 Vodaphone

        There is ’3′ and a few other minor networks which have mostly been borged into the larger three, but really that is it.

        P.S. I think you’ll notice a symmetry between the three networks I listed and the MNC number in your APN settings.

      • Guest

        This worked perfectly for my galaxy s after a restart

        Great stuff
        Thanks to all

    • Kevin10238

      My TPG mobile use Optus network, so I use the Optus setting, and it is work, so I would like to suggest that you find out which network your mobile use first, and then apply the setting.

    • sid

      I had a tough time applying the above mentioned settings in this webpage and then I called TPG callcentre.

      2 simple steps involved in connecting to the internet:

      1) Activate GPRS service by logging online into TPG->my account
      2) Create Access Point Name with settings :

      Name:Optus WEB
      APN:internet
      Authentication type: PAP

      Thats it!!! You can use the internet after 5-10 minutes.

      All the best !!!

      - Sid

  • http://www.facebook.com/bazzaduncan Barry Duncan

    The TPG settings do not work sorry.

    Thanks anyways.

  • Jonty_q

    TPG Settings (This should help Barry et al):
    Name: TPG Internet (Really doesn’t matter what the name is actually)
    APN: internet
    Proxy: 203.139.083.152
    Port: 8070
    MCC: 505
    MNC: 02
    APN Type: default

  • Jonty_q

    I had been totally frustrated too with getting TPG data to work on my Ideos.

    TPG sent me an email with a bunch of settings which were similar to those listed on this site – but nup, they don’t work.

    It used to be on virgin sub-network. Virgin’s settings list the proxy with a leading zero, as in .083 – dunno if that makes any difference, haven’t experimented on that.

    I think the *real* difference is simply using ‘internet’ as the APN, as is suggested on other sites for TPG data (but the other sites didn’t have the full details either).

    Soooo pleased to finally have my data working!

    • Rubicon

      Hi all,

      Trying to get my HTC Desire HD working with mobile internet. These setting still give me a ‘failed due to incorrect apn’ response. Worth calling TPG to check if my service is actually enabled?

      • http://ausdroid.net Chris Rowland

        Yes make sure that you have GPRS enabled.. apparently this isn’t the default? Check the online control panel thing, or call them.

      • http://ausdroid.net Chris Rowland

    • dbareis

      > leading zero, as in .083 – dunno if that makes any difference

      It makes a huge difference as that indicates its in octal (so same as “.74″), the question is did some idiot just add the leading 0 or not (try “.83″ and “.74″, no leading zero)…

  • Brad

    Have phone with Virgin. Can’t change the settings that were already loaded on there for some reason. Any ideas?

  • http://www.facebook.com/mageea Andrew Magee

    I’ve got mine working with TPG using these settings, except that I had to blank the Proxy field (rather than use 203.139.83.152 as suggested). For some reason, everything works except for “notifications” in facebook (even the other parts of the facebook app, including the news feed, work). Does anyone have any ideas on this?

  • Chris_iape

    FFS how do I get this thing to work (I’ve got a HTC desire Z).

  • Chris_iape

    Ok so I get the APN stuff happening, turns out the enabling of data through TPG takes a while to process. Now I have the problem of hotmail not providing POP to TPG. And my browser does not seem to want to work even though all other apps work fine. Any suggestions? Hate to say it in an android forum, but now I know why iphones are so popular.

    • jimmy jack

      suggestion: get gmail

  • Fleurbarrett

    after calling Optus and changing APN settings and nothing has worked, i found this blog! I then put in these settings and the only difference was the ‘pap’ setting and it is working now! Thanks you SO MUCH!!!

  • Amos

    Great idea to have these settings all in one spot! I’m having trouble finding the right settings for iiNet anywhere – they are using the Optus network, but the Optus settings (either the defaults or the ones suggested above) aren’t working for me. Any ideas?

    Also, when you say in the note above “Make sure to press the radio button on return to the APNs menu after entering an APN”, I’ve noticed that the radio button seems to disappear when I set the Auth Type, so that I can’t select the APN. What’s with that…?

  • Amos

    Settings that ended up working for me for an HTC Desire on iiNet (which uses Optus’ network): as above for Optus, except APN=”internet” instead of “yesinternet” (name shouldn’t matter), Auth type=”None” instead of “PAP”, and APN Type=”default” instead of “internet”. For MMS, all settings identical except Auth type=”None”. In my case, though, the confusing thing was that this didn’t work until I restarted my phone… now it’s working with those settings :-)

    • Daniel

      +1 for this. I wasted ages on a friend’s imported htc desire because I did not read the comments on this page. The stated APN type for Optus of “internet” does not cause the green radio button to become visible. Using “default” allows the button to become visible and the APN starts working. Can the article please be updated?

      I have a Virgin Prepaid Broadband SIM. The APN for this is VirginBroadband (not case sensitive). The VirginInternet APN must be for mobile phone plans, but I tried both and only VirginBroadband works. Also on Android you must set the “Authentication type” to PAP or it won’t work.

    OK, so I’d like to share my findings, after a couple of hours… I have a Galaxy Tab purchased from Telstra (so it’s “NextG”) and a TPG mobile SIM, which offers better value.
    You’ll need to double check GPRS is enabled in your TPG mobile account, then configure the APN as above (for TPG Mobile) but REMOVE the proxy IP. It works!

     Crazy Johns settings didn’t work :( Any suggestions?

    • WAZ

      Hi, I just got mine working after having the phone for 4 months, Crazy John’s store was no help, they said all my setting were perfect and they couldn’t do anything to fix it, but I managed to get MMS and Internet working together.

      Go into:
      - Wireless & Networks
      - Mobile Networks
      - Access Point Names

      Set up a new APN for Internet (just fill in these fields, leave the rest blank)
      Name: Crazy Internet
      APN: purtona.net
      MMS protocol: WAP 2.0
      MCC: 505
      MNC: 03
      Authentication type: None
      APN type: default

      Save this APN using the menu button, then create another APN for MMS

      Name: MMS
      APN: purtona.wap
      MMSC: http://purtona.mms/mmssend
      MMS proxy: 010.202.002.020
      MMS port: 8080
      MMS protocol: WAP 2.0
      MCC: 505
      MNC: 03
      Authentication type: PAP
      APN type: mms

      Save and create another APN

      Name: Crazy MMS
      APN: purtona.net
      Proxy: 010.202.002.020
      Port: 8080
      MMSC: http://purtona.mms/mmssend
      MMS proxy: 010.202.002.020
      MMS port: 8080
      MMS protocol: WAP 2.0
      MCC: 505
      MNC: 03
      Authentication type: PAP
      APN type: default

      Save this APN and then select the APN for Crazy MMS so that the round icon is green.
      Turn your phone off and on and then send yourself an MMS to check it’s working.

      • ecky

        These are the correct settings direct from the enginneers who build the network:
        • Name: Telstra Internet• APN: telstra.iph• Proxy: (blank)• Port: (blank)• MMS Protocol: WAP 2.0• MCC: 505• MNC: 01• Authentication: CHAP• APN type: default,supl
        • Name: Telstra MMS• APN: telstra.mms• MMSC: http://mmsc.telstra.com:8002• MMS proxy: 10.1.1.180• MMS port: 80• MMS Protocol: WAP 2.0• MCC: 505• MNC: 01• Authentication: CHAP• APN type: mms
        Also blurb again hopefully with less typo’s. As above the network should already set up for telstra.iph for all customers now.
        ****************
        Hopefully below is useful and explains why Telstra’s APNs are strange. Our strangeness gives some advantages.
        For Android phones if an application needs to talk to the network it talks to Android ConnectivityManager on the phone, When the application calls the connectivity manager it requests the type of network it needs to talk to.
        For Android these are:1. Dial Up Network (TYPE_MOBILE_DUN)
        This is really old but might be used for some very old networks. Networking Bridge so that the carrier is aware of DUN traffic. It may coexist with default data connections.
        Not used anymore. Pretty sure the HTC desire does not support.
        2. WiMAX data connection TYPE_WIMAX
        The Default Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access data connection.
        Pretty sure the HTC desire does not support.
        3. High Priority Mobile data {TYPE_MOBILE_HIPRI}
        A High Priority Mobile data connection. This connection is typically the same as {TYPE_MOBILE} but the routing setup is different. Only requesting processes will have access to the Mobile DNS servers and only IP’s explicitly requested via {@link #requestRouteToHost} will route over this interface if a default route exists.
        Something you don’t need to think about
        4. WIFI data connection. (TYPE_WIFI)
        When active, all data traffic will use this connection by default.
        Used to connect to your home wireless router.
        Below are the APN TYPES that you set in the APN config on your phone.
        1. Default (TYPE_MOBILE)
        The Default Mobile data connection. When active, all data traffic will use this connection by default. Should not coexist with other default connections.
        2. mms (TYPE_MOBILE_MMS)
        An MMS-specific Mobile data connection. This connection may be the same as {TYPE_MOBILE} but it may be different dependant on the network. This is used by applications needing to talk to the carrier’s Multimedia Messaging Service servers.
        3. supl (TYPE_MOBILE_SUPL);
        A Secure User Plane Location specific Mobile data connection. This connection may be the same as {TYPE_MOBILE} but it may be different. This is used by applications needing to talk to the carrier’s Secure User Plane Location servers for help locating the device
        How does the config on the phone get chosen?
        When an application wishes to talk to the “network” it sets the APN type when it requests ConnectivityManager. ConnectivityManager then checks if you have an “APN type” set that matches. So for instance if the “APN type” it checks is MMS it will scan you configuration setting for a match and use say testra.mms APN. It will then use this configuration for the network connection. What you use for the APN name does not matter.
        So now the connected to the network with say telstra.mms which is the APN that you configured.
        What’s the APN for in Telstra?
        Telstra APNs are:
        • telstra.wap. (Wireless Application Protocol)
        A WAP browser is a commonly used web browser for small mobile devices such as cell phones. This is for older phones, don’t use on your fancy HTC desire.It render screens for old Nokia phones etc. So if you surf the web on the old phone Telstra will attempt to display the pages as best we can on the device you are using. It provides access to the internet but is routed through the Telstra proxy and TSDP. This also authenticates you so we can give you access to any “stuff” you may have purchased off us. This means that using this APN in combination with the Telstra proxy allows a customer to access and purchase BigPond content.
        • telstra.iph ( iphone, well they were first )
        Has the same functionality as telstra.wap but for iPhone / Android users. It will give you access to Telstra content like Foxtel as in authenticates you. It will display web pages cleanly.
        • telstra.blackberry
        Has the same functionality as telstra.wap but for BlackBerry.
        • telstra.mms
        This network connects to our Multimedia Messaging Service servers.
        • telstra.internet
        This network does not do through of any of our very expensive kit to provide you with the best render pages we can give you. It also does not allow you to use and of our content such as foxtel. It meant to be a dump pipe for the wireless USB modems.
        So what I would recommend you use for a HTC desire is:For APN TYPE = mms, Use telstra.mmsFor APN TYPE = default ,supl, use telstra.iph
        Why does telstra.iph cause some people problems.Short answer is if you just “pop” a SIM is new fancy HTC desire we don’t know you have switched phones. And the network is still set up as if you had your trusty old Nokia. So we have not set up access to telstra.iph and the data does not work. Also if the know the phone and the screen size we can attempt to make the info on the screen look pretty. I have been told that now all phones should have access to telstra.iph. I will report back if there are any issues.
        So you need to tell us what phone you are using. This is done by using the following URL:
        http://configure.telstra.com.au/telstra/index.jsp
        It will send you a PIN to ensure you are not playing a joke on your mate and changing the network setting. Once you enter the Pin this could take a couple of hours to get activated. You also might need to power off your phone. If this does not work then contact FOH to get it added.
        For those that are interested in the more techo side of life read on. For everyone else just click on the link above and life will hopefully be good.
        When you turn your phone on you could be in Aust or overseas.The phone listen for the mobiles networks and send some info to try to connect.If we have a roaming agreement or it our super speedy network you get connected.The first thing that happens is the gateway pulls your entire configuration from our Home location network.
        This customer info contains what APNs you are allowed to connect to. So all being well these will be telstra.mms and telstra.iph.
        So if your phone sends any other apns that are not set up in the network it will fail.
        So to make this easy let say you are in Bali.
        You open your browser and it connects to a gateway at Bali. It receives APN telstra.iph. As we have an agreement with overseas they look at the Telstra part of the APN and send the connect message to our serving network. Once we get the connect message we look at the iph part and send it to some of our very flash equipment to give you the best experience. So if you used telstra.internet most things would be ok however we cannot authenticate you and therefore you can’t use Foxtel and other “stuff”
        The same is exactly the same if you turn on your home in Aust. The local gateway will see telstra.iph and route the call to the same place.
        Now for telstra.mms you just don’t wish to connect to a network, you need to connect to an actual box that does the MMS. This is why you need the extra info MMSC / MMS Proxy set.
        The APN type is not really related to network perfomrance it used by the Android OS to find what network settings to use.
        So think of it this way. The first “APN type” you set up on the phone is “default”. This means every connection that the Android Connectivity Manager sets up will use these settings. ie telstra.iph.
        For Telstra this is fine except that MMS will fail as the MMS application will use the default “telstra.iph” and fail as we have mms centre on another network.
        So as well as default you need to set up “APN type” on mms. This will mean the applications that wish to send a MMS will use the correct network “telstra.mms” and also get the MMSC and proxy settings. ( some telco’s have the MMS on there default network, not us we try to keep th design clean)
        Thats it really.
        If you set APN type = “default,supl” or “default, hipri” this will just result in exactly the same network setting. So you are just telling supl to use the default setting. Or hipri to use the default settings. The Android system will find a match and use those network settings.
        So really adding anything above “default” is just adding some race strips for your car. It will not make it any faster, but itwill feel faster.
        So recommendation is really “default” or if you wish to make it feel faster than “default,{something}” is fine.
        The only reason I can think people started using it is maybe back in time there was a bug in the Android O/S and for some reason it didn’t just use the default. There would be people better qualified than me to answer this.
        Anyway I would use “default,supl” as it stop people asking if the setting is quicker than “default”…. And it more fun to have something different than defaut.

      • ecky

        These are the correct settings direct from the enginneers who build the network:
        • Name: Telstra Internet• APN: telstra.iph• Proxy: (blank)• Port: (blank)• MMS Protocol: WAP 2.0• MCC: 505• MNC: 01• Authentication: CHAP• APN type: default,supl
        • Name: Telstra MMS• APN: telstra.mms• MMSC: http://mmsc.telstra.com:8002• MMS proxy: 10.1.1.180• MMS port: 80• MMS Protocol: WAP 2.0• MCC: 505• MNC: 01• Authentication: CHAP• APN type: mms
        Also blurb again hopefully with less typo’s. As above the network should already set up for telstra.iph for all customers now.
        ****************
        Hopefully below is useful and explains why Telstra’s APNs are strange. Our strangeness gives some advantages.
        For Android phones if an application needs to talk to the network it talks to Android ConnectivityManager on the phone, When the application calls the connectivity manager it requests the type of network it needs to talk to.
        For Android these are:1. Dial Up Network (TYPE_MOBILE_DUN)
        This is really old but might be used for some very old networks. Networking Bridge so that the carrier is aware of DUN traffic. It may coexist with default data connections.
        Not used anymore. Pretty sure the HTC desire does not support.
        2. WiMAX data connection TYPE_WIMAX
        The Default Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access data connection.
        Pretty sure the HTC desire does not support.
        3. High Priority Mobile data {TYPE_MOBILE_HIPRI}
        A High Priority Mobile data connection. This connection is typically the same as {TYPE_MOBILE} but the routing setup is different. Only requesting processes will have access to the Mobile DNS servers and only IP’s explicitly requested via {@link #requestRouteToHost} will route over this interface if a default route exists.
        Something you don’t need to think about
        4. WIFI data connection. (TYPE_WIFI)
        When active, all data traffic will use this connection by default.
        Used to connect to your home wireless router.
        Below are the APN TYPES that you set in the APN config on your phone.
        1. Default (TYPE_MOBILE)
        The Default Mobile data connection. When active, all data traffic will use this connection by default. Should not coexist with other default connections.
        2. mms (TYPE_MOBILE_MMS)
        An MMS-specific Mobile data connection. This connection may be the same as {TYPE_MOBILE} but it may be different dependant on the network. This is used by applications needing to talk to the carrier’s Multimedia Messaging Service servers.
        3. supl (TYPE_MOBILE_SUPL);
        A Secure User Plane Location specific Mobile data connection. This connection may be the same as {TYPE_MOBILE} but it may be different. This is used by applications needing to talk to the carrier’s Secure User Plane Location servers for help locating the device
        How does the config on the phone get chosen?
        When an application wishes to talk to the “network” it sets the APN type when it requests ConnectivityManager. ConnectivityManager then checks if you have an “APN type” set that matches. So for instance if the “APN type” it checks is MMS it will scan you configuration setting for a match and use say testra.mms APN. It will then use this configuration for the network connection. What you use for the APN name does not matter.
        So now the connected to the network with say telstra.mms which is the APN that you configured.
        What’s the APN for in Telstra?
        Telstra APNs are:
        • telstra.wap. (Wireless Application Protocol)
        A WAP browser is a commonly used web browser for small mobile devices such as cell phones. This is for older phones, don’t use on your fancy HTC desire.It render screens for old Nokia phones etc. So if you surf the web on the old phone Telstra will attempt to display the pages as best we can on the device you are using. It provides access to the internet but is routed through the Telstra proxy and TSDP. This also authenticates you so we can give you access to any “stuff” you may have purchased off us. This means that using this APN in combination with the Telstra proxy allows a customer to access and purchase BigPond content.
        • telstra.iph ( iphone, well they were first )
        Has the same functionality as telstra.wap but for iPhone / Android users. It will give you access to Telstra content like Foxtel as in authenticates you. It will display web pages cleanly.
        • telstra.blackberry
        Has the same functionality as telstra.wap but for BlackBerry.
        • telstra.mms
        This network connects to our Multimedia Messaging Service servers.
        • telstra.internet
        This network does not do through of any of our very expensive kit to provide you with the best render pages we can give you. It also does not allow you to use and of our content such as foxtel. It meant to be a dump pipe for the wireless USB modems.
        So what I would recommend you use for a HTC desire is:For APN TYPE = mms, Use telstra.mmsFor APN TYPE = default ,supl, use telstra.iph
        Why does telstra.iph cause some people problems.Short answer is if you just “pop” a SIM is new fancy HTC desire we don’t know you have switched phones. And the network is still set up as if you had your trusty old Nokia. So we have not set up access to telstra.iph and the data does not work. Also if the know the phone and the screen size we can attempt to make the info on the screen look pretty. I have been told that now all phones should have access to telstra.iph.

    Hi expert,

    I’m newbie to Android. Just bought HTC Legend. It is registered to Vodaphone and I have it unlocked. I’m using TPG sim with GPRS enabled. However I’ve spent this whole afternoon trying with both Optus and TPG APN setting still do not work. Any idea or advice? Really appreciate.

  • Tony

    Bump to what ken said

  • Tony

    Except I am running a Motorola Atrix and the only issue I can see is that on my phone there does not seem to be a field for MMS Protocol

    • Wayne

      Same here but I have a defy but I’m on Amaysim and I have no data.

  • Joe

    A BIG THANK YOU!!!! It works on my Galaxy Tab.
    At first it seemed like it didn’t help, but I tap on the “Use Packet Data” to turn it off, then tap it to turn it on again and it worked!!! My SIM is from VirginMobile .. and for APN Type I set it to “INTERNET” coz I don’t use MMS anyway.
    Thanks again!!!

    • Xtan888

      Hi Joe,

      It doesn’t work on my Galaxy Tab. I’m with VirginMobile too. What do you type into “Network SSID”

    With Optus internet settings, the APN type needs to be blank or it wont work – or it’ll be excruciatingly slow…

    • Fethers

      Just spent an hour talking to the sevice centre then a trip to the Optus shop by which time everyone had convinced me that my new HTC Incredible S was defective – then read and tried this and it worked straight away! Thankyou.

      • Benjamin Paine

        Need to come to the right shop ;)

  • Ryhan

    Optus has a heap of different APNs depending on what type of plan you have:
    http://optus.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/255
    Also Optus uses CHAP not PAP.
    As PeopleBuilders said, APN type needs to be blank

    • Leeloo

      omg thankyou so much Ryhan, Ive tried everything inputting the correct codes onto my HTC Velocity and still no mms downloading until I changed PAP to CHAP!!!

  • Adjksla

    I had to set Virgin to CHAP to get it to work on the Galaxy S.

    • Adjksla

      Only for MMS I mean, Internet worked without setting CHAP.

  • Mivi

    :( Just got a HTC desire Z and managed to get 3G working with the above settings.  But no luck on the MMS! I checked the TPG forums etc but no one seems to have an answer…

    Help?

    • Bacchusmarsh

      i recall having to send myself an MMS before i could send or receive from others… when i first go my phone.

    • Kavallier

      I had this problem for ages. Try actually typing “default” in the APN type, rather than leaving it as default (which is what I thought it was initally)

  • guest

    thank youn thank you thank you :D:D:D:D:D:D:D

  • Nanette Reid

    Yet again, Optus not working. What is it with AU Telcos – I can roam all over the world and happily connect using any SIM I buy, but try and use my HTC Desire here in AU, and neither the internet nor MMS works.

    Tried all the configurations suggested – no joy. Anyone found a work around?

    • Anonymous

      Not sure if you’ve already tried it..

      Ryhan below suggests using CHAP instead of PAP for the ‘Auth Type’.
      When setting up an Xperia Play a while ago, I found that setting helped.

  • Naz_deco

    Thank you very much. I was thinking that I will never be able to use internet unless through wi-fi, but thanks to you for making it posible.

    not working for my Telstra pre paid HTC Wildfire. I added both of those APN’s, connected, but it says “Connection failed due to incorrect APN settings” 

    i have the latest Android System Update (Froyo or something like that.) maybe this could be effecting it? help would be great. Thanks.

    • http://ausdroid.net Chris Rowland (Team Ausdroid)

      If telstra.iph doesn’t work, try telstra.internet or telstra.datapack .. if those don’t work, you probably need to call Telstra and check that your service is properly provisioned.

      • Fiona

        Chris,

        Thankyou very much…I was on the phone to Telstra and the Tech support person went over my settings with me a number of times and still I couldnt connect to the internet, so i decided to google my problem and came across your feedback…Again thanks heaps…I changed the APN from telstra.iph to telstra.internet…and FINALLY IT WORKED!!!!!…youre a legend….Cheers Fiona

      • Eggdrop

    Hi, I have an HTC flyer on optus 3g.  I can download apps from the android app store, i can browse to HTCs website, but everything else takes me to “personal.optus” where its aking me to activate my sim.  put in the number and it comes back as incorrect sim.  I have quadrouple chekcd the number and its correct, the sim was activated in-store….any ideas?

    • Grunger

      How long was it between when the store activated your SIM and when you tried browsing? Sometimes it takes a few hours for the SIM card to be fully activated by the network. If it has been more than 12 hours, then contact the Optus helpline.

    TPG apns do not work on HTC Desire HD. TPG are hopeless. Cannot access internet or send mms. Can anyone help. This has been going on for months!! Thanks.

    • Grunger

      Hi Emma,

      Forgive me with starting with the obvious, have you gone to the TPG website and enable your GPRS?

      Here are my internet settings for TPG:
      Name: Optus Internet
      APN: internet
      Port: 9201
      MMS: protocol: WAP 2.0
      MCC: 505
      MNC: 02
      APN type: default

      For the MMS setting
      Name: Optus MMS
      APN: mms
      MMSC: http://mmsc.optus.com.au:8002/
      MMS proxy: 61.88.190.10
      MMS Port: 8070
      MMS protocol: WAP 2.0
      MCC: 505
      MNC: 02
      APN type: mms

      All other fields are intentionally left blank and for your information, I have a HTC Desire Z so the settings should remain the same as the HTC Desire HD.

      Good luck.

    • Shellgaz

      I have an HTC wildfire with TPG. I tried the settings given for TPG - the internet timed out and I could receive but not send MMS. I played around with lots of combinations until I finally got it to work. My settings for MMS are the same as Grunger, and settings for Internet are the same except for

    - Can Send MMS to other phones fine

    - Can Receive MMS from own number

    - Have checked APN settings and confirmed them with Optus

    - They have checked her profile, deleted it and created a new one

    The MMS is received, but it just sits at “downloading”.

    3G reception is available.

    45 minutes on the phone to Optus and the best they could tell me was to go to an optus store for help.

    APN settings are as listed above. No third party SMS programs.

    Really need help.

    I have a samsung galaxy s, am with Hello Mobile which shares with vodafone. Tried the above apn, but when came to the last one ‘APN type: leave this empty”, I haven’t the option to leave it empty, 3 options are: internet + MMS, internet, MMS. I’ve tried all 3 options but still can’t access internet. Anyone help?

      The companies that run off vodafone network seem to use the same settings as for Crazy John. Just tested it with a Lebara mobile sim and the Crazy john settings seem to be fine.

    I have a ZTE V9 which I have unlocked and want to connect to Internet via prepaid Vodafone.
    Does anybody know of a place or person that I can take it to activate/get it working. Been in to Vodafone shop and not much help, I have been reading forums on net via my laptop for two weeks trying everything. Im not a computer wizz but Im also not a dummy.The phone works but not internet, I cant update APN settings. There must be somebody out there that knows what they are doing in NSW that I can take it to. This is very frustrating and regret purchase.

      Hi Terry,
      Did you ever get any answer to this query – I’m having the same problem. 

  • jo

    Hi thank you so much for these, I spent HOURS over the phone to virgin trying to get settings that would work, and then I tried motorola, who make the phone, and noone could give me the correct settings!!! I was about to give up. I have a motorola atrix, with virgin. The only thing I did differently was to use a 083 instead on 83 for the proxy (does this even matter?) and I left the APN type blank.

    Hey Guys! i have a HTC Desire HD, which is working on the optus network (postpaid)… unfortunately i had difficulties with the phone so i had it replaced and now have a new HTC Desire HD with a new sim card. I cannot get the internet to work at all! i have entered multiple APN’s in with no success! i need the internet up and running for work purposes! if anyone can help me, i’d really appreciate it :) 

    • Anonymous

      Not sure if you’ve already tried it..

      Ryhan below suggests using CHAP instead of PAP for the ‘Auth Type’.
      When setting up an Xperia Play a while ago, and also on my own phone, I found that setting helped.

      • Dvandermerwe11

        Yeh! ive tried using CHAP and had no luck! any other suggestions??

      • Anonymous

        I apologise. I have no other suggestions.

        The two devices I’ve had success on had CHAP for the Auth Type, and ‘default’ for the APN Type.
        I hope you can get it sorted..

      change the mobile apn from live.vodafone.com to vfinternet.au

      and Voila but before you do reset to default settings and change the first one but only change the apn from “live.vodafone.com” to “vfinternet.au”

  • Paul Walker

    The TPG settings seem to have a typo. The proxy number seems very similar (but different) to the Virgin one.

    However, the only way I got TPG to work with my Z9 running CM7 was to remove the proxy settings altogether.

    These setting are different to the ones that Amaysim gave me. I changed both (intenet and MMS) to see if that fixes my issue of not being able to get MMS pics from the vodafone network (telstra’s are working fine) and find that my internet is now not working. So I changed them back.

    I have tried a new SIM etc and all amaysim can do right now is log the problem with optus. Grr!I have a samsung galaxy s2

  • steve

    Tried the Tel$tra settings but still no joy with my LG P500. Anyone with a clue?

    I have a HTC desire HD A1919 model from China, was with Telstra and had the APNs working… then swapped to TPG and tried for 2 weeks different combinations.  Try this setting, which has finally worked for me so that both MMS and internet settings work now. Name: Optus MMS; APN:mms;MMSC: http://mmsc.optus.com.au:8002/ ; MMS proxy: 8070 (the MMS protocol, MCC and MNC are auto defaulted to WAP 2.0, 505, and 02; Authendtification type PAP; APN type: mms  - there should not be a radio button to select.  Now add APN; Name Optus WEB; APN: internet; Authentification type PAP; APN type: default – this will have a radio button set – select it if it is not auto selected.  These setting should help.  The mobile network of OPTUS is really slow in our area.  so just be patient with the internet and getting MMSs downloaded.  Finally!

    TPG with Galaxy S: The setting above doesn’t work for me. Instead, I’ve created a new APN entry named “tpg” and just put “internet” as APN and it works for me. 

    • Guest

      You are right about the apn i put the way you put it and restarted the phone and it works. Thank you

    • Lhavfrue

      Works on my Wildfire S also. Thank you :)

  • http://nickj.org/ Nick J

    The TPG settings shown above are wrong (there should be no proxy, no port, and an Auth type). Here’s what it should be, after going through this with their help desk and getting it working about 10 minutes ago:

        Name: Optus Internet
        APN: internet
        Proxy:
        Port:
        Username:
        Password:
        Server:
        MMSC:
        MMS Proxy:
        MMS Port:
        MMS Protocol:
        MCC: 505
        MNC: 02
        Auth Type: PAP
        APN Type: default
        APN protocol: IPv4

    Note: delete all other APNs apart from this one & the MMS one (by going into them, pressing the menu button, then going “delete APN”), and make sure this one is selected (has the radio button dot next to it), and then reboot the phone, and then make sure this APN is selected again, before then testing in a browser.

    The above definitely works. Can also use “yesinternet” as the “APN” value, this works fine too.

    • Victoria273

       Hi there,

      I bought unlocked Wildfire. Trying to set up the internet according your setup, also TPG sent me the same set up you got (except APN protocol, even I don’t have that option in my mobile ) . I tried everything and it is always saying connection failed due to incorrect APN settings. I’m just about to smash that “smartphone” really

  • Jane

    I have a HTC Wildfire S … with Optus… I have configured the Internet to work but MMS won’t work with these configs… any suggestions appreciated, I had a HTC Aria with optus prior (before it died) & I got MMS with that so I know I am configured for it just can’t get it to work on this phone… grrr

    • Linadeans

      Hi Jane, I have the same problem as you and HTC said that the Wildfire S is only configured for use on the Telstra network as that particular phone will only send MMS via the 850 Mhz frequency and Optus operates on the 900 Mhz frequency! I am not happy and I am sure there is a way around this but I haven’t discovered it yet!?

      Anyone else know a solution??

    • jords

      Can you please give me your APN settings to get internet working???? I also have a wildfire S, I’m with TPG but it should be the same

  • Dennis Bareis

    TPG now longer works with info pon page I suspect proxy removed. In any case spoke to TPG support and they made me make these changes:

    Name: Optus WEB
    Proxy: [none]

  • Gregory Fisher

    My internet works, but not reliably
    I have 3G of data on the Optus network – can-t get close to using it because I can’t stay connected. Forget large downloads – you loose connection before it finishes and have to restart.If you are installing some apps with trial periods this causes the app to think you downloading it a second time to get a second free trial period and the result is you get no free trial period – e.g. Sygic navigator app.Poor reception you might think. Not so. Phone and SMS still work, but they of course are different, but if I switch to flight mode and back to normal mode – hey presto, the internet works again, for a short time.What does this mean?One thing it means is that the network is not down and I am not out of range, they are just serving out bandwidth in small portions – most likely because they have over allocated the available bandwidth to get as many customers as possible onto their network.Of course this means we do not get the data speeds advertised for more than a few seconds and then nothing for 5, 10, 15 or more minutes. Unless you disconnect and reconnect (Flight mode On and off) in which case it assumes you are just connecting and you get a few seconds more.In short it’s a con.Lucky for me I didn’t trust the providers and bought the phone outright so I am not on contract, so I can change providers at any time. Will give Telstra a try now.If they don’t work any better – Sigh – ????? – That will be annoying, but at least I will have 2 sims and so can flip back and forth between providers on prepaid plans to monitor their performance.I would advise everyone to do the same. When they realise they are not holding onto customers they will pull up their socks (or get off the beach and put them back on) and provide a better service.Once you own the phone prepaid costs a bit more today, but you are not on a contract so may be getting a better deal in 12 months then you would if you were stuck on a 24 month contract. If we can get most to use prepaid they will have to start competing hard in order to hold onto customers for more than a month. We all get a better deal then and a better service.Then we will have the control, not the providers, and we can screw them they way they have been screwing us.Let’s do it.

    ok failed so many times trying the get this to work but was successful after thinking out side the box.
    pretty much all sites are suggesting settings as if created as individual APN’s
    i combined the mms and internet settings as one APN and now internet and mms works successfully.
    if any one can see why or explain in better detail why it works then id love to hear it.

    Thanks Dfbcon. I combined the Amaysim settings for Internet and MMS keeping the ‘APN: Internet’ and made the ‘APN Type: default’ – and it worked to get the net running. Don’t know about MMS.

  • mms stopped working

    HI. I’m with Virgin. my mms and internet was working just fine until wednesday 18/01. Internet continues to work but mms stopped. I tried resetting APSs as above to no avail. Called the Phillipines or wherever for customer support and all I ended up with was several annoying sms messages telling me to prepare for more messages. I usually only have data network activated when i want to go online (to avoid annoying words with friends updates) and this has not been a problem in the past. I’ve now discovered that I can only send/receive mms as long as I have data network activated. Has this always been the case? Must I have data network connected at all times if I want to send/receive mms? Can anyone help please?

  • compqueen

    Hi, might be the network as my mms doesn’t seem to be working at the moment either. Not sure how long it’s been like it as I don’t send many but just went to and won’t send. I have had it happen before, then all of a sudden they’ll be up and going again.

  • Mpowerv

    I didn’t realise but I’m not sure I’ve been downloading apps from Android Market on my android mobile and I have been charged. Im with Amaysim I’m not sure if I’m on a data plan or not. I have a friend who  has an iphone on prepaid and he uses the 3g internet constantly. Does it mean he is paying for it because he said he’s not. 

  • Iswombat

    I have a Samsung Galaxy Nexus (via Virgin Mobile) with ICS and have not been able to send or receive MMS from day one, and it has now been 4 weeks. The tech support team keeps sending me to the APNs on the virgin site – which are the same as the one above – and I have manually entered the APN several times but to no avail. The internet is slow and painful, not what I expected at all. Does anyone have any idea what the problem maybe as the virginmobile tech team are clueless, and I’m being polite.

    For info I had to change the Telstra MMS authentication to “none” for MMS sending to be successful.

    My Samsung Galaxy S2 was set up in store at the Telstra shop with authentication “none” and works fine. When I purchased a Galaxy Note and used the APN settings as listed above (CHAP authentication) it would not send MMSs 100% of the time. Changed authentication to “none” and works fine now.

  • Martin

    I’m not sure why the listed proxy for TPG Mobile is as it is; the host is located in Japan and doesn’t seem to be up. GPRS doesn’t work unless it’s removed either.

  • SaraBee

    I have a Samsung Galaxy Y and am with Telstra.  Can anyone tell me why I need to have ‘packet data’ ticked in order to send/receive MMS?  If its not ticked, it doesn’t work?  Even Telstra Excellence Tech Team didn’t understand why as it relates to internet usage, not MMS. Or am I incorrect about that ? Thanks very much :)

    • Mighty_rifle

       I can’t get mine to turn off. When I turn it off, and close the page, I go back in and it is running again. I am a pre-paid customer.. HELP

      • SaraBee

         If you have a Samsumg Galaxy Y, you need to manually ‘untick’ the setting. Under Settings, select ‘Wireless and networks’, then scroll down to ‘Mobile networks’ and untick the ‘Use packet data’ option.  This is how I do it. I can’t access web when this is unticked.

    • Griz

      I think Android phones treat anything that needs an APN as “data”, so disabling packet data is disabling any APN in use. Other phones don’t do this.

      • SaraBee

         Thanks Griz.

      • anon

         why would tpg apn have a proxy 203.139.83.152 thats in japan ? wtf ? doesnt seem right

      • Mike Williams

        They might be (rather stupidly) using it internally i.e. as a LAN address.

    • Owl1263

      OMG I have spent hours on this problem today and tried various things from other sites, to even Telstra sending me new APN and nothing worked… Until I tried what SaraBee suggeted with the ‘packet data’ and suddenly it works… Thanks SaraBee :)

  • Mike

     SpinTel requires me to enter an AAN (Authentication Access Number) or “Phone Number” of *99# into the APN on my Tab, but I cannot find any suitable setting.  I have the same issue with my USB modem on linux.  Any idea how/where I can enter this?

    Hi,
    i have an android tablet and a Telstra dongle.

    What can i do, I am tearing my hair out!!!

    Thanks for this!!

    After a Factory Reset of my Telstra HTC Desire (the 3rd one to fix “low memory” problem), I had no internet connection ( Not happened on previous resets).
    Under APNs, there was no info, just a black screen. I pushed the menu button: 2 options, “New APN”, “Reset to Default”. I hit “Reset to Default”, and Voila!! Telstra Internet and Telstra MMS appeared on the screen, with Internet checked.

    I checked the info against what you had listed on this site and it’s all the same.

    I love my HTC Desire, but the “Low space” problem is killing me. I’ve talked to Telstra twice, stating that the phone cannot do what I bought it for and I’ve still got 9mths to go on my 2 year contract! I asked for an upgrade handset at no extra cost. This problem first occured after only 1 year.
    Their solutions:
    1. Factory Reset
    2. Upgrade (at extra cost to me)
    3. Root the phone (“unofficial advice”)

  • Just Jen

    Hi guys, I have an unlocked HTC desire Z which was originally with Vodaphone, but I use it with Telstra prepaid. I have all the Telstra APN settings as suggested above, but my phone will only work at dial up speed (0.01MB/s) even though I am in a 3g/next g area. Any suggestions on how I can get my phone up to speed? Thanks :)

    • Worn Out

      I have similar situation with my HTC Desire Z, no luck with the settings shown. Anyone who may have an answer?

  • Michael Balsillie

    How I fixed mine (Virgin, Samsung Galaxy S1)

    Someone may have mentioned this already but I cbf reading all the comments.

    I just got back to Aus after 6 months away and my mms on my Samsung Galaxy S1 for virgin mobile (aus) wasn’t working (I’ve flashed the phone a few times).

    After some fiddling this is what eventually worked for me.

    There was a default APN present which I couldn’t delete (programmed onto the sim possibly?). This was for Optus MMS. On closer inspection the mms proxy address was in the wrong field (was in server field). Edited the APN to exactly match the details given above for Optus MMS.

    Created a second APN for Virgin Internet (ie data only, not mms) set the details as per Virgin internet as above with the one difference that I set the type to internet only (not internet + mms).

    Anyway, that’s working, can surf the web and send/receive pics all while not on wifi.

    Maybe this helps someone else :)

    – Michael.

  • Tenererider

    Hi thanks for the TPG settings, I found that with the HTC wildfire that omitting the Proxy and Port setting for the internet meant that I could connect to the internet.

  • Junita

    I have a samsung galaxy s2 with live connected (powered by optus). I have tried these settings and many more and still my mms doesnt work. Internet works fine. Any ideas? It seems that its common for samsung galaxy 2 not being able to mms correctly?

  • taylor

    i have a crazy johns sim card and my boyfriend recently gave me his HTC desire a8183 to replace my LG p500. Ive tried different APNs but it can’t seem to connect to the internet because it says that the APN is wrong. Messaging works but i can’t get onto the internet.

  • Laura

    For OPTUS users: Check which APN you need to use here: http://www.optus.com.au/customercentre/myaccount/myservices

    So many comments! A few haters… chill out!

    Ok, so I’m still rocking my good old HTC Desire HD (it’s been close to 3 years now!). I’m on Virgin and I recently flashed JellyTime (Android 4.1.2) on the DHD, and I lost the ability to send / receive MMS. Got it working by doing the following…

    From any home screen, press Menu > Settings. Under Data usage tap More… then Mobile networks > Access Point Names. Tap Menu > Reset to default. Wait a while. The list gets populated with various networks. I noticed a couple new entries were not showing the radio button. In particular, the Virgin AU MMS which I wanted. I went into it and removed the APN Type, pressed Menu > Save, then back in the list the radio button appeared. Selected it, and bang, all done and working.

    I hope this helps others in the same boat!

    TPG MMS setting problem solved for HTC

    I have unbranded Australian a-tick HTC One X running JB 4.1.2.

    I managed to set it up successfully in unusual way so sharing. This will work for unbranded HTC on JB not sure about carrier branded or ICS but give it a try
    1)Delete all APN from your mobile.
    2)Click reset to default in your Access point menu. You will see list of carriers select Optus.(if you cant the switch off, take your sim out for few min., insert and restart) You will see 4-5 Optus APNs appearing in APN list along with Optus MMS. Dont touch or open Optus MMS APN.

    Open the active Data APN (You can identify it with Blue dot) and edit that APN with TPG settings for mobile data as per

    http://www.tpg.com.au/support/handset_settings.php#1.1
    select save to save changes to data APN

    Open and Delete all other APN one by one so that you just have default Optus MMS and Edited TPG Mobile APN

    restart your phone. Now your settings are default APN settings for Optus MMS and also have active TPG Data APN. Tell me if it worked for you. I think issue is MMS will only work if phone is set to phone’s default settings for that network. Funnily it will not work if you manually create or edit MMS APN.
    Hope this helps
