I'm trying to set up my new phone and having a few issues... I received a message saying 'if you'd like to use WAP or MMS on this phone you'll need to manually enter a few settings' - but the instructions for android don't seem to work.

 

So I can't access wifi/internet or use any apps yet...Help greatly appreciated!!
