Hi

Thanks for this it got me going. However i went to mobitel to verify settings.- they said Proxy Setting / Proxy Port / Authentication Type / Authentication Port – need not be set and removed them. Also if you have very old SIM cards like i had, get it renvewed for 100 Rupees so you get 3G.

Can i have working Mobitel MMS settings for Android ics?I tried out all the settings that you have generated & Mobitel too.So can you help me on this??

<span class='registered'>Online Support</span>
Online Support

@kusal:
We are aware that setting up Mobitel MMS on Android has issues. This is because they are using two separate access points for MMS and GPRS. Please try the given settings in the post (Mobitel MMS settings for Android post link: http://mobilebroadband.gishan.net/entry/.. ) first (most probably work on most Android devices ) and then read all comments about the alternations on how others have got it work. If you got it work then post the solution that worked for you for the benefit of others. Thanks.

When you set MNC to 01, the APN will be visible only if a Mobitel SIM is inserted.

The first set of credentials did not work for my S3, but credentials by srinath worked fine. Tnx :)

but now the problem is mms is not working. Is there a fix for mms, has any1 got gprs credentials for both internet and mms ??

<span class='registered'>Online Support</span>
Online Support
09-05-’13 14:48

@NewToAndroid:
Change the APN type to internet+mms and see. If it doesn’t work you’ve to make a separate profile for MMS. Follow the instructions given here for that. http://mobilebroadband.gishan.net/entry/..
MMS and GPRS can be setup in 2 different profiles in fact it is needed because Mobitel has a different APN for MMS which is wapmms where you won’t be charged for data downloaded or uploaded.
