Re: Nokia C1 and C2 Internet and MMS settings guide.

To ensure a more smoother experience (especially with YouTube), I recommend removing steps 11, 12 and 13 from the internet settings.

Re: Nokia C1 and C2 Internet and MMS settings guide.

A 'proxy' is a sort of an extra barrier in the APN. If you remove it, the internet still works.

It's a common issue with Nokias on giffgaff that YouTube clips freeze partway through a clip. I've discovered that removing the proxy solves the issue.
