Setting Up MMS On Android

I have had my G1 for quite some time. When I first got it I added the APN settings for basic Internet. Over the last 2 days I have received 2 mms’s I kept getting “Failed to download” oops I had forgotten to set up the MMS proxy settings.

How to get there; Settings -> Wireless Controls -> Mobile Networks -> Access Point Names -> (Select One or create one via Menu->Add APN)
Correct APN settings:
Vodacom:
Name: Vodacom Internet
APN: Internet
Proxy: Leave blank
Port: Leave blank
UserName: Leave Blank
MMSC: Leave Blank
MMS Proxy: 196.6.128.13 (I had it as mmsc.vodacom4me.co.za but this doens’t work)
MMS Port: 8080
MMC: 655
MNC: 01
APN Type: Leave Blank

MTN(I haven’t tested these but they should work):
Name: Internet
APN: Internet
Proxy: Leave blank
Port: Leave blank
UserName: Leave Blank
MMSC: Leave Blank
MMS Proxy: 196.11.240.241
MMS Port: 8080
MMC: 655
MNC: 01
APN Type: Leave Blank

Hope this at least helps some one.

  9. @Hasan: Thanks for the information I did’t know they offered Vlive on Android packages.

    Ps that is because you are on of the very select few that get their traffic proxied via the very nice super great amazing Vlive proxy that is.

    that was sarcasm. 🙁 I am really not a fan of the Vlive content adaption they like to do. I hope they don’t try and adapt content to fit the androids screen.

    But the best thing is there was a bug with their proxies that allowed different people to “steal” eachothers headers and cookies and such login as different people can some one say #fail

  11. Hi,

    I have a magic with vodacom, I did put in your settings and 3G work fine and I can receive MMS’s but it doesn’t want to send MMS’s.

    Please help!

    Thanks

  13. Thanks so much. I’m setting up a new HUAWEI Android phone. The APN settings for MTN worked perfectly.
