Windows Phone 8 APN Settings

Hi,

 

After looking a numerous postings to get the APN settings, I decided to create this.

I have got this working on my Samsung ATIV S.

It should not differ to for other variants of Windows Phone.

 

1. Go to Settings -> APN

2. Ensure Automatic APN is not checked

3. Edit APN

4. I found that there were o2 APNs for MMS/Mobile Web already there, so I just edited them as follows:

 

o2 Mobile Web:

APN name - giffgaff Mobile Web

Profile category - internet (always on)

APN - giffgaff.com

Auth Type - pap

Username - giffgaff

Password - password

GSM,WCDMA/CDMA - GSM, WCDMA

 

o2 MMS APN name - giffgaff MMS

Profile category - MMS

MMSC - http://mmsc.mediamessaging.co.uk:8002

APN - giffgaff.com

Auth Type - pap

Username - giffgaff

Password - password

Proxy address - 193.113.200.195

Proxy domain - mmsc.mediamessaging.co.uk

Proxy port - 8080

Maximum MMS Size - 300

GSM,WCDMA/CDMA - GSM, WCDMA

 

5. Once the settings have been saved, you should be able to browse the web and send MMS. I always restart the phone to make sure.

 

If you decide to create new APNs instead, ensure you delete the originals first.

 

I hope this helps everyone on Windows Phone.
