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.
